    Has tru glo NS same age as gun....2 years old.

    Box, 2 17 rd mags, etc.

    But it has a siderlock trigger. Does anyone know how much a new glock trigger would be to replace the siderlock?

    He's asking 400.00. Seem reasonable if in VG condition?

    Thanks.

    I think a stock trigger and bar are about $12.

    $400 is a good price (I would buy it for that if local).

    I'd buy it. 2 years ago was before they started to mess with the parts, so your going to have a old school reliable g17. It's what I'm looking fro currently. I absolutely do not want any G17 made in the last 1.5 years.

    Buy a new trigger/bar for 12-18 and sell the Siderlock assembly for 30-40 on ebay. You're money ahead.

    I picked it up....will post pics soon.

    The shell casing envelope has a 2008 test date.

    But he says the sights are 2010 as he's only had the gun for a couple years, so they should have another 8 yrs of usefulness if that's the case.

    Not too happy about the siderlock, but not sure it's worth removing. I suppose I could remove as the website makes it look fairly easy. Just need the pusher tool.

    Thanks and I think so. It was too close a FTF to pass up...took all of 10 mins.

    I'd replace the entire trigger & trigger bar. To get the Siderlock to stay, you have to enlarge the original hole in the trigger normally (or so I have read). I'd feel safer with a new bar in there, and like I said, you could sell the used one for more than a replacement.

    The trigger is not made to be a user serviceable part.

    Do you think this is a Glock armorer job?

    Changing out the trigger bar? Or just the trigger pad? I doubt an Armorer would go through the trouble of just a pad, because you can't just order the pad on its own from the supply list.

    Have you ever detail stripped your frame before?

    Getting it back to original from the factory.

    I have broken down my 19...barrel, slide, spring, then frame....that's my breakdown.

    Is there more?

    Yes the removal of the 3 pins to remove the trigger housing. It's really not hard, you just have to do it in the correct order and no matter what, not use a hammer on the pins. Honestly I have seen where people have only removed the front two pins, then swiveled the housing upward to change a trigger bar and the connector.

    If you are not comfortable, then by all means take it to an armorer, but there are plenty of Youtube videos on how to detail strip. Glocks are simple because they have so few parts compared to other pistols.

    Watch this a few times. At the 7:06 mark is when he starts the frame.

    The trickiest part is getting the pin out the slide lock is held in place by. You'll just have to wiggle it some to get it free of the groves. You can do it though.

    I may keep as is after range visit.

    The previous owner spent 80.00 for this mod, and it's been flawless, per him.

    A new trigger and arm will cost me $25.00. If it works after 100 rds or so then it will probably stay as is.

    I didn't buy to trade/sell as I've been looking for one of these for a while in this price range.

    Is this just a range toy or double for home defense? If just range toy then it will work just as well. If it pulls double duty, then you'll need to train yourself to make sure the lock isn't in place.

    Both.

    I don't ever plan on using the lock, so I'll treat the same as my 19. Hopefully, range trip will go fine.
    If so, it will stay as is.
