    Ive been watching gen2 19’s on GB for awhile now. Used Boxed complete ones are bringing good money. Saw the last two used ones bring $750+ and this NIB gen2 (90’s, no proof marks, no manual) just brought $900+.
    I know it seems crazy, but collectors are buying.

    I'm watching seven Gen2 19's on GB right now, they all seem to be standing pretty still. The only ones that seem to move are the ones in pristine condition, with box, manual, 2 pre-ban mags, and included accessories. Otherwise, they've been on my watch-list for weeks. People seem to be buying these pristine ones for whatever price the sellers are asking for too. Like the one that just sold for $900 had nothing "special" about it, no proof marks, internals were already upgraded, no "19" on the trigger guard, late serial number. Maybe I missed something on it that drove the price up, who knows. But then again one's like this early BP*** s/n with all the goodies only went for $725...

    I guess it really depends on who is in the market for one and what is available at that time. Last year I picked up mine LNIB for 600.00 with box w/label on it and all original except for the cleaning rod.. However, it does seem like the Gen 2s are being snatched up quickly.

    Some gen 2's are dropping in price. Why? Simple, Gen 5 doesn't have finger bumps. NIB will still bring good $$$$.

    I know this is about 19's but I just bought a very nice model 22, Gen 2 off of Kings firearms for $267.00. It was dirty but otherwise it was just about pristine. In fact it shot as good as my issued Glock 22 Gen 4 at the range today. I took her apart down to the pins and springs, cleaned her (She had a lot of dirt or dust in her). Gave her a good lubing and off to the range. The target was almost identical to the target I just qualified with this year. VERY nice. I was with a Federal Department in 1994 when I got my first Glock Gen 2, so I bought this because I like thee Gen 2 a lot. I was amazed at how accurate it shot. It felt very nice to shot.

    I like it neo, my trunk gun is a gen 2 G-22, it I the same set up as the one I was issued in 1996 by the Sheriffs Department. I have no clue where that one went, but I got one of its siblings eighty-one numbers later identical to mine. Last week my local Police Supply had an as new in box gen 4 G-22, GNS everything Police Trade for $300 + Tax and I passed as I don't need another G-22.
    I carry a gen 3 G-22, and could not be happier.

    I agree w/ 303 on this point. I have owned and used at least 3 Gen2 19's due to no finger grooves. While I did like them, I found that the smaller "MBS" frame on the Gen4's allowed the grip and finger grooves to fit my hand much better. I also consider that the "dot" connector in the shorter TMH to produce a much better trigger pull than earlier Gen's and the Gen5, once they are broken in well. The newer trigger return spring system on the Gen5's is pretty good, again, once it get broken in.
    Of course, IMHO. YMMV.

    The gen 2’s are cool but not worth any premium. Here’s a like new 23 I got for $325 at a gun show. Might have had 2 mags through it when I got it.

    Would never pay more than $350 or so for one. And it would have to be in near perfect condition like that one. Lots of wear? $200 would be my limit.

    I bought one three years ago for $350. I contacted Glock and they said it was one of the first 3k 19’s imported into the country.

    What are 19 gen2 glocks worth n.i.b. In your part of the country. And how do you find them? I would be interested. I've had a couple of them but sold them. I've always thought the 19 or 23 was the best size wise pistol.

    If you learn to scour the depths of the internet, you can find like new gen 2 19’s for 500 pawnshop postings. I passed on a perfect 2 19 recently because it had no paperwork.

    But there in lies the problem if you’re really trying to collect. you need it all, and eventually that will require luck.

    Unless of course your willing to pay 900 off GB, but that’s still a risk.
