    Ten 1911s?
    Zero failures of ANY sort?

    I have had failures with 1911's. But i have ten that have never had a failure ever.

    My colt series 80 from 1980 has had the front site fall off.. but at least 80 to 85 thousand rounds thru it when that happened. My springfield loaded long slide did not lock back when empty during the first few hundred rounds. Then it did.

    My sig 238 / 380 is a mini 1911.. and it would not go into battery for maybe 5 range trips. Sig sent me a heavier recoil spring and its now almost flawless.

    Had a link pin come unstaked on a 1911.. sent it in to be staked. But it never caused any issues. Just noticed it while cleaning it.

    At todays prices, you would only be making maybe $100 on that deal. Tell him pistol and the 3 mags only. Rest of it requires more cash.

    I do have less than $400 into all that. But yeah, even though the gun was free and I get blue label pricing if I wanted to replace it someday, I think I'll hold on to it.

    Cost to replace for a GSSF member would be about 500 and then 40 for 4 mags and whatever the cost of ammo would be. I’d take the $1000 in a heart beat.

    I figure $25 per mag. Plus my aftermarket sights are worth $120, holster and mag pouches $100. Not sure if I'd come out much ahead.

    That’s great unless you wanted to replace the 4th gen with a 4th gen. I personally like the 4th.gen guns better than the 5th.gens at this time as both my 5th gen 26 and 17 had to have the site drifted to correct POA/POI, something I haven’t had to do with any other generation. The pistols are still as accurate as any other Glock out there, that little issue is an annoyance to me.

    Adding the sights to the deal increases the price unless they are some you can take off and put on another gun. Not sure what holsters and mag pouches you have that wouldn’t fit the 5th gen but if it’s not just the gun and mags and ammo, then I’ll yes, you’re cutting into your profit.
    I just bought 5 Glock 17 mags for $50 at the last GSSF match. That’s where I put the $10 value at. Of course new cost more.

    If someone already has a gun set up how they like it... sights, etc..., then it doesn’t make a lot of sense to sell it just to replace it.
    I replace the factory sights so the drifting issue you mention Is required as part of the installation.

    Yeah, if I’m only coming out 3-$400 ahead it’s really not worth the hassle, that’s like a Friday night bar tab for me:D

    I also replace the factory sights. My issue is with my gen 4 pistols G21,G22, and G30 all have/had sights set in the center for POA/POI, my gen 5 G17 and G26 pistols have the rear sights drifted right off center to make POA/POI correct. Maybe its just me, but I don’t think so.

    As far as glock rails breaking off I had a G22 break one and I did not even know it. We had five others to include one that broke two rails and it kept running. Only noticed when the gun was pulled apart and a rail fell out.
