    Picked up my second Glock a few weekends ago at a gunshow. Now the G19 has a sister! They are both police trad-ins, and have saved me much money over buying new.

    Glock 26 police trade-in with Trijicon night sights, a mag, and a plastic case for $400.
    Appears to be a "carried often, shot little" pistol. The barrel has almost no sign of wear.

    The slide however, has the duller finish compared to my G19, and has some holster wear.

    I thought the trigger on this thing was crazy stiff compared to my G19. I ordered a (-) connector to "fix" the problem. Watched a video how to do the change, and discovered my G26 here has a NY1 trigger spring.

    I dont like it.......

    So I tried the combo of the NY1 and the (-) and wasent impressed, so I put the (-) connector in my G19. With the (-) connector in the G19 and the regular trigger spring, it feels great!.

    So now I need to get a regular glock trigger spring for the 26, and I should be all set. I dont mind a 5 pound trigger on the G26, but with that NY1 spring, it is hard. Maybe 6-8lb?

    So anyways.......off to get a spring for the g26 now

    Cant wait to shoot em both again with different triggers!

    One of my G21s was a police trade in purchased when I lived in a different location.

    For some reason where I am, I do not see very many police trade ins. I could use another G19 gen3. And I really wish the cops had used a G20 Gen3.

    Congrats, I would almost bet money those came from the Dayton PD. Their stock is just starting to hit stores now. My local place has a ton of 26s and 27s flowing through it lately along with geb2 19s and a gen2 17.

    Enjoy it

    Very nice.

    Esp. if you get a used Glock with Nites that are still bright.

    As a general rule.

    I always say that you can't go wrong with buying a used CZ, Glock, or Ruger.
