    Seems like a lot....last one I saw here was $400.00. Especially since you can buy a new glock 20 for a little over 500.

    If it is in good condition jump on it. They did not make very many of those guns and they are built like tanks. I have a 1066 and would not trade it for any Glock 10mm ever made.

    I just picked one up for $600 OTD and felt I got a nice deal. Mine is in great shape.

    Go for it.

    I hate to break the news to you, but a used 1006 is worth more than new G20.

    $600.00 depends on what you want to do with it. Self defense, plinking or collecting.

    Pro's Demand for Smith's won't go down.

    Con's Too heavy for daily carry.
    Ammo cost, if you don't reload.
    Mag and Holster are going to be hard to find.

    The only thought I have, is because of caliber, and, being so few choices, in 10MM, makes it a somewhat desirable firearm. That being said, I guess the big question is, what are you going to do with it? As Darkangel1846 mentioned, not only in price does the G20 edge out the 1006. There's weight, size, capacity, durability, that I personally feel the G20 has the edge. I could also add accuracy, I'm more than satisfied with the G20's, and not sure which would win that category.

    I've been an OGCA member now for 4 years, and the very first show I went to, had two 1006's for sale. Both were priced at $425. One looked new, the other would rate about 80%. Needless to say, the like new one was tempting, but, I then opted for my first G20. If I could find one like new for $425-$500, I would buy it. If the price was a firm 6 bills, now, I would buy a G29, new, instead, in a heart beat!

    Of course if you just want it to store in your safe, that changes things somewhat. I'd still offer $500, or wait until you found another, at a better price.

    Buy it if it is in good shape.

    A very good shooting gun!

    A buddy and I rented one at a local gun store/range last year. We both liked it. He wants to buy one, and later on I talked the store's management into selling the gun to my buddy for $600. But he just couldn't commit right away (he's like that with gun purchases). Maybe someone else got wind that the gun could be "bought" because it's no longer in the display case at the rental counter.

    The G20 definitely makes more sense as a carry gun. That's a no brainer.

    I agree whole heartedly! How about as a range gun, with anticipation, of thousands, of rounds down range, the durability aspect? Parts availability, in the future? Additional magazines down the road? I am a huge fan of the 10, it's my favorite caliber, so versatile. I have contemplated a 1006 many times if for no other reason, to expand my 10MM stable. As a matter of fact, just last December, I contemplated purchasing a NIB 1006. It was a FFL, here in Ohio. It was priced at $625, which I felt was too much. It was! After two weeks of no bites or offers, he pulled the add. I thought of offering $525, which I felt fair, and decide to go in another direction. Even at that price, would it be a better carry, hunting, range, home defense, firearm then my G20? I thought not.

    See, I'm not a huge Glock fan. I do like them in 9mm, but they don't do anything for me at the range.

    To me, the 1006 is a better shooting pistol than the G20 is. YMMV.

    Cannot argue with that!:wavey: We are just at two different ends of the spectrum, on many issues, on firearms. Like I said, I've contemplated often on the 1006, I think it is a beautiful firearm! If Smith ever introduces an M&P, in 10MM, I'll own one the month they do. I do believe, 10MM popularity is growing, and, cannot believe, other manufactures, are going to allow Glock, the complete market.

    Here's one where I will have to disagree, at least for the examples of each I've owned. I shoot the G20 much better.

    That's cool.

    I've never been able to shoot Glocks that great. Many people do though. :dunno:

    $600 seems a little high, but not outrageously so...I paid $500 for a S&W 4506 in excellent condition with tritium sights.

    Looking back, I wish I had purchased one of those S&W 1076s when the FBI dropped them and they were practically giving them away. :brickwall:

    That's why the G20 holds 16 rounds. It allows you to miss more and still get the job done.
