    Just got our FFL and building a range. We would like to buy 100 glock 22 or 23s. Hoping to pay $200 to $230. Would retail them to the public for $299. Would glock have that many trades? Is this a realistic price to pay for 100 glocks?

    Most trade-ins I've seen run $300+ when sold back to the officers from the agency trading in the guns. If you are buying from a surplus or wholesaler, you might be able to get better prices. AIM Surplus was selling Gen 3 22s for 299.

    The 40S&W models generally sell for the least amount. If you're buying in quantity like that from a wholesaler, you may be able to get close to those prices.

    If you find a wholesaler with that kind of quantity, you might be able to get close to those prices. My local cop shop sells used 22s for $299.95, so I wouldn't be surprised if they bought them for around your price point, if not less.

    I know .40 is easier to find for LE trade ins but on the flip side 9mm would be a lot easier to sell at a better price but you'll probably pay more for them too, possibly.

    I doubt Glock keeps hundreds of old trade-ins on hand.

    I wish someone would open a gun range in my area..When I do get to go they are packed with people. Must be hard to get legal papers for a gun range?

    I would check with big police shops like Gt distributors in Texas. They are a great place for us non-ffl holders to get used glocks also.

    So you plan on being competition with Bud's? Get any military/law enforcement surplus available and be fair with your customers.
