    How many of you guys have one? I read an article that Glock got away from them b/c people were leaving loaded guns in the case. Band thing of course is that the post in the box is inside the trigger guard. People were dropping or shaking the boxes and rounds were goin off!:wow:

    I personally like the current Glock Boxes.... But I wouldn't mind owning one of the old ones... I've seen them on eBay for about $20....

    There is one particular old-style box that has major collectible value: the one for the 17 that has the ammo compartments for individual rounds. I have seen these move for three-figure prices.

    I may have to check but I think the trigger will not fit around the appendix without being in the fired position. I will post tomorrow if nobody else confirms.

    My Gen1 Glock17 has the lunchbox with the spaces for individual rounds. Serial number on the box matches the gun.

    If the trigger is in the ready position, the TOP of the post WILL insert into the trigger/guard gap without firing the gun, but then the post would fire the trigger as the gun was pushed deeoer into the box. This is what caused the problem with discharge of a Glock because too many American owners were trying to store a loaded gun in the box.

    I have one I got off eBay a few years ago. The lid refuses to close in any shape or form. Maybe if I put a brick on top of it.

    Thought it would be a nice size for car transport or something, it just takes up space in my closet. I have way more current style boxes than Glocks so I have no use for it.

    It has a neat factor though, whenever some sees it.

    I have the one that my 26 came in when purchased in '96. I stored it in there for years when the kids were young, now it's in the night stand ready to go (the gun that is, the box is in storage).

    I think most are saying the same thing. My G20 will NOT fit in its tupperware box without the trigger being pulled, so there is no way that someone could NOT shoot the gun putting it on the post but then have a ND when they later drop the closed box (as described by the OP).

    I like the new cases better, FWIW.

    My Gen 1 17 came with the original plastic box (with the bullet holders) and all the original accessories. For $450 it was a steal. I took it to the Glock armorer at the local GSSF match, and he confirmed that just the box alone sells for $150 because of the collector value. He also told me that they were told to start cutting the "splines" off of the post in them because of all of the incidents where putting a loaded gun in them caused them to discharge. He was nice enough to spare mine since it was a collector's item.

    I never knew of the white ones and the ones with the bullet indexes. Interesting.

    Glock still has them, I sent 2 23s to Smyrna in a bubble wraped in a cardbord box. When the came back they each were in a nice new "tupperware" box. I dont know f mine is newer/different, but the gun wont go off in it (at least mine wont)
    #1- the trigger safety doesnt go bact far enough for the trigger to release.
    #2- the form down the front of the grip wont let the gun move
    #3- even with the trigger in the fire position the gun doesnt move.

    Like I said maybe this is just my gun and a freak of nature thing, the gun has a smooth trigger, 25 cent trigger job and the "-" connector.
    I'm in no way saying to put a loaded gun in the box (but you should have known someone was going to try it right away). I never even use the box all mine are loaded and in the gun cabinet, and a couple are always loaded and holstered in special places, but that now has to change with the addition of our new Grandson.
