    someone is selling a g23 gen 4 with night sights only one box through it for 500 which is a good deal were i live, stock they are 595 and w/ns 675. the problem might be this guy polished his barrel so its shiny silver not black. is that like a no no why he would do it i have no idea you cant make a glock more reliable, but will this effect the safty tolerences etc.. of the pistol or any other reason to stay away

    buy a new one if possible, maybe he did something else to the gun, and you will end up putting more $$$ into it.

    I would rather spend a few extra bucks and know exactly what I am getting.

    Yea I agree with this. I think it's always better to spend another $100 to get a brand new gun.

    Like it was said before, get a new one. I prefer to screw up my own firearms and make them worthless than have them already come that way.

    Take your little Glock takedown tool, ask if you can detail strip it...

    Then take a look.

    Just don't scratch anything! (LOL)

    Chances are there is nothing else wrong... it's a Glock for cryin out loud. Worst case you head out to a GSSF match and have the Armorer fix what ever might be bugging you.

    I would certainly do what I just recommended if I was looking a decent deal in the face.

    If he says NO, just walk away.

    Trust me, a 'silver barrel' is *nothin* compared to what some of us have done to our Glocks! :rofl:

    All the barrel is, is surface color. Soak it in vinegar and scrub. I did one of mine.

    No biggie.

    If he polished the chamber too, that's a problem. An LWD barrel will run you about $110. But a new GSSF G23 will run you only a little over $400. I got mine with Meps installed for another $65.
