    I used to be behind enemy lines in Massachusetts and I have what Mass calls a "preban" Glock that I am looking to sell.

    I am looking to sell it now since I live in free state and wanted to get an idea of where to post the ad and what I should be asking for. I will be including two 10 round magazines as well. I'm thinking of asking somewhere between $500-$550 for the whole package.

    Thoughts?

    Suggestion:

    Use Gunbroker's "Advanced Search" function and check completed listing for the identical make and model and you will get a rough idea of what they are going for these days.

    Only those in socialist or communist states would have interest in 10/rd mags LOL.

    I’m not sure how the used firearms market is in your new place of residence but here in mine, prices are down. If you are able to ship that preban pistol to a restricted state, you will likely do much better. Doing so legally could be difficult depending what legal hoops certain jurisdictions may require. I’ll tell you this, several months back, my LGS had a Gen 2 19 in like new condition with the box and everything. It was priced at $550. I was very tempted to pick it up but at that time I had too many pokers in the fire and my fun money was running low. As previous posters have mentioned, check the online sources and if you are going to target a specific market such as your previous state of residence, make sure to cover all your bases including price and legalities. Good luck!

    No offense, but why would someone pay new Glock prices for a used Glock of a much older generation?

    Because they don’t make those older generations anymore. Not everyone wants the latest model. I am new to Glocks and the only models that appeal to me right now are the Gen2’s. I traded for a Gen2 19 last week that had the original stickered box, both original mags, and accessories for $450.

    Understood, but would you have paid $550?

    Given its condition and what came with it, yes. I had him at $500 cash OTD, but decided to trade for it instead. But again, I wanted it because it was a Gen2.

    Ok, fair enough. Other than “collecting” appeal of an out-of-production gun, is there any other feature/characteristic of a gen 2 Glock that would cause you to pay almost new prices?

    To be clear, I’m not trying to be argumentative, just curious. *Any* reason you would prefer a gen two is valid.

    Some people just like to collect things and will pay top dollar for whatever it they want to collect. Just check check the completed sales of Glock Gen 1 and Gen 2 models and you will see for yourself. Not too hard to understand. I personally don't get it either, but there you go.

    I know your not. Honestly, I am not a fan of light rails on handguns. I like the clean lines of the Gen2. By no means collector appeal, but I tend to gravitate to out of production guns.

    He's right. There are idiots that will overpay for a gen 2 because they think it's some kind of holy grail. Glock now makes the gen 5 which is basically a copy of the old gen 2 guns (no finger grooves).

    I get liking the older guns but what I don't understand is why people are willing to pay insane prices for them. I know where I can get a Gen 2 19 and 23 for under 400 bucks right now if I wanted to. It's not like they are rare.

    He's not "right" about anything. If he does not want to buy a Gen 2 and pay the market price for it, he can choose not to. To each his own. I would not buy an old Glock either, but those who do choose to and to each their own.

    Never ceases to amaze me how some people seem to take it so personally when people buy something they would not want to buy. You don't have to make yourself feel better by running other choices down.

    Sure you can ask that much. In a free state it's a $350 gun at best, a shop might give you 200 if you traded it in

    What did I claim to be right about? I asked a freaking question.

    I'm pretty sure it was not merely a question, but more of a passive aggressive way of criticizing those who choose to pursue older Glocks. But whatever, you asked your freaking question and got your answer. :)

    $375-385 (rural eastern Kentucky) and only if it's 90-95% overall condition.

    10-round magazines? Sorry, keep them and maybe get $350 with no mags.

    No offense, just how it is.

    I make it a point of buying Glocks that come only with 10 round mags, then I post them up on eBay and always get a premium price for the ten round mags. I've never not come out ahead.
