    My neighbor's dad passed away and he received an unfired LNIB Glock 17 Gen1 (Tupperware Box) - Ser#CB-7xx. Black Internals
    Appreciate any input on possible value.

    Probably would get more useful feedback in collector’s sub forum. Important factors in value include: what condition are Tupperware stickers, does it come with a manual, original speed loader, etc. All that said, a truly unfired Gen 1 is rare indeed. I can imagine it bringing a big chunk of money on Gunbroker.

    Guess everything is relative, but for me there is no such thing as an "old" Glock.

    Especially of the internals.
    Want to see if they're silver or black.

    A Glock is a Glock.

    Ha-Ha...I wasn't thinking of that aspect, but for me these new fangled plastic pistols are still a rather novel idea. In my small dictionary, "old" doesn't count if i can remember when it came into the market.

    A used Glock is worth $350.00. Glocks are disposable hunks of plastic......nothing more.

    I’ve seen Gen 1’s go for upwards of $3000 , if it is unfired then it’s a rare bird for sure.

    Especially if the internals are the original black.

    Right. The oldest Glocks are 37 years old. I'm old enough to have kids older than that.

    I understand collecting, since I collect a lot of military weapons and militaria and am quite passionate about it, but never had the least desire to collect any modern weapons. I wish I knew why that is.

    They have been bringing some money on Gunbroker lately.

    There’s a Gen 1 17 on gunbroker now, used condition with noticeable slide wear, one mag and not the original case for a starting bid of $1995.

    I guess they’re worth whatever one’s willing to pay for one.

    Head over to the Collectors forum for better information and bring some pics if you can. The accessories with the gun (internal parts, box, manual, speed loader, etc.) could very well be worth as much or more than the gun. Some early bullet boxes have sold for $900, same with early owner’s manuals. This gun is not that early but still desirable.

    BTW, I gave $4k for an AFxxx and nearly that much for another rare model. Some Glocks are collectible.

    The Glock I posted in the original post here has black internals.

    The neighbor's father who died at 92-years old bought this and many other handguns in the 1960s, 70s and 80s and put them in his safes never to be removed or fired. He was a collector who didn't shoot these guns. He lived in the desert where rust is not a problem. Amazing
