    My husband passed away last year. He had a 9mm Glock 19 he bought in 1993 for $430.00. We both shot it but only put about 15 boxes of shells through it. I really like the gun and won't sell it unless it is still worth at least as much as he paid for it. It is in excellent condition with original box.

    Does it still have the high-caps (15-rounders)? If so, you can definitely get more out of the sale than $430. My advice if you are looking for some money is this...hang on to the gun, sell the high caps (those will fetch at least $50-$60 apiece), buy a few 10 rounders, and with a little luck soon the AWB will sunset and you'll be able to buy 15-rounders for $20 or less again soon enough. But of course I don't know all the details of why you're thinking about selling the gun, just trying to give some helpful advice to on what to do. Best of luck to you. :)

    I had no idea the large capacity clips made the gun worth more. Thanks for your advice. The reason for selling the Glock 19 is to replace it with a revolver that is light weight and easy to carry. I have a Taurus 38 special but it is too heavy.

    Good advice. If mags are FML (full metal lined) they are worth more esp if no cracks/damage. Don't go to a gun store and ask what they will give for it. I KNOW they will say "Well the gun is OK so we can give you $250,$275 for it but the mags we sell for $25 so can give you $25 for the pair....Heck we will be nice and give you $325 for whole package" Then mark the gun for $450 and mags for $100 each.
    In all honesty the gun is worth + $400 and mags @ $70 each. I assume they have numbers to 15 on back? Better explanation of FML/NFML below.
    edit to make it clearer. :)

    what larry said .. don't goto a gun store .. they'll just rip you off .. you could try a want ad in the paper .. or try selling it on here .. here is probably your best bet ..

    someone here would be able to fill you in on how to go about selling it online ..

    Sorry, not so. All GLOCK factory mags have metal liners. It depends on the shape (# of sides) of the liner in determining FML vs NFML.

    I am not savy on the abreviations. What is NFML?

    What do you mean when you say; "It depends on the shape (# of sides) of the liner in determining FML vs NFML." Are you referring to the condition of the gun and mags? What is number of sides?

    I feel kind of stupid, but I am grateful for what I am learning from everyone.

    Referring to mags.

    NFML = Non Full Metal Lined (metal liner on back and both sides of mag.

    FML = Full Metal Lined (metal liner on both sides, front and back)

    Usually, FMLs are more desirable.

    Go to Glockmeister.com and look under tech info for more information.

    NFMLNDF also has a half moon notch at the top of the mag where the rear of the bullet sits when loaded.
    FMLDF have a square notch instead
    if the mags are loaded, you could put them in the pistol and then push the mag release if they drop out there is a VERY good chance the are DROP FREE, if you have to pull them out instead..then they are the non drop free no metal liner.

    Armedlady,

    Any chance of getting a picture of this gun and its magazines for us so we can tell you what for sure what it's worth?

    FYI. Although they are rare in the US, the original G17 mags only had metal around the lips. In fact, first gen mags aren't really the first generation. You can see them in some of the original Glock promo pictures.
