    Greetings all-
    I'm picking up a Gen 2 Glock 19 which dates back to 1993. It's a PD issued piece with a very low round count (approx 1700). Question is, which parts (if any) should I swap out for new on the weapon?

    Tnx in advance
    J.

    Odds are, you purchased a factory rebuild. This was most likely a trade in. The LE dept would have shipped it back to the factory. They would have inspected the piece and repair / replace anything needed. You would be good to go!

    If this is not the case, I would replace the springs...... if you have any issues of reliability.

    Thanks for the info. btw: It's a NYPD gun..first run issued to the Transit PD. To the best of my knowledge these were issued brand new. It did at some point have the ejection port & extractor modified by Glock due to the mysterious "phase 3 malfunction" issues the NYPD was having.
