    We always see pics of new Glocks but let's see some well used worn frames and slides. Pics of scratched frames, grips and slides. (not the torture tested Glocks but everyday good 'ol fashioned seasoned guns.)

    Ok then why did you reply to this thread then? :upeyes:


    Anyone else want to share their well used Glocks that have been used and "abused?"

    (ie small dings, scratches, scrapes, marrs from duty or CCW wear?)

    I'll start, this is my police trade in G23. Carried daily by me in either a CBST or a zero concealment systems OWB.

    My favorite gun, I love the look of worn in Glocks; they have much more character.

    Keep 'em coming guys!

    It's refreshing to see some wear and tear pics.

    No safe queens here, just raw roughed up bad boys!


    (I'd post a pic of my own but I just got a brand new Glock)

    :cool:

    The other day I re-read the thread where that pic came from. Not sure what some of those tests prove. It's interesting but theres no reason to drag a Glock behind a pick up truck, shoot it with a .22, or drop it out of an airplane. Especially dragging it behnd a truck or drop it out of a plane. Maybe shooting it proves how tough the tennifer is but still.... nothing I'd do with a gun I paid money for.

    I've seen this pic before also. It was a torture test. I wanted to see down-to-earth pics of well used Glocks. Not torture tested ones like I wrote in my beginning post.

    Here are some pics of my well-used 1st Gen G17. Serial number is CC***, made in 1987, the year I graduated HS. It was bought and issued by the PD I work for and I know the guy who carried it. When my PD recently bought Gen4 G22 guns for issue, they sold the former issue Berettas and this single, lowly G17 to us instead of trading them in. The Berettas went for $225, this G17 was purchased for $200 with 3 new mags and 6 old, 1st Gen, non-drop-free mags.

    Detail showing Austrian proofs on barrel, slide, frame.

    LOTS of holster wear!

    [​IMG]
    If you look at the slide serrations, you can see exactly where the snap for the thumb break hit the slide for about 20 years.

    The stippling is worn smooth from wear on jackets, duty shirts, etc.

    Worn stippling and LOTS of character marks.

    [​IMG]
    If you look at the top of the back strap, at the curve of the beavertail, the polymer is worn almost smooth.

    Still has the factory rear sight and it shows!

    [​IMG]
    Front side of rear sight after 20 years of holsters, seat belts, banging off of door frames, etc.

    Front sight is a little rounded but still pretty good.

    Not bad for all the years of carry, neglect and abuse! Best thing is that, even though it was used and abused, not lubed as it should have been and probably was never wiped down, no rust! Tenifer works! The guy who carried it wasn't a gun guy and never shot it aside from annual qualifications. He looked at it as a tool, nothing more, nothing less. Your duty gun is usually gifted to you upon retirement at our PD if you carried an issued gun, this guy just turned it in and didn't want it. He figured carrying it for the majority of his career was enough. As near as i can figure, it has about 10,000 rds through it, maybe a little more, maybe a little less. Still shoots very well, just moves around in your hand a little because of all the slick poly. I have a rear sight somewhere and will trade it out sometime.

    Thing probably has still never had 1 BTF incedent, joking aside, would anyone test fire that- I'm asking seriously? I'm ob my phone I can't tell just how bad it is, or isn't..new barrel and a little work would probably shoot fine..

    The test where he was dragging it behind his truck and the test where he dropped it out of the plane was to show not only durability but that even with a large number of bumps or extreme impacts the gun won't discharge.

    I'm sure plenty of Glocks are in the bottom of rivers and lakes. I know someone who found an older Taurus 9mm in a lake. Turned it into police and never heard anything back, but of course, it was rusted frozen.

    Well here is my contribution. Been carrying it since 2000. Been through a lot with it, hard to believe it still looks half as good as it does.

    All original too. Some say I should replace springs and sights and all, but I just don't want to mess up a proven system.
