    Buy it . I'd pay the $300 for a first gen . I'd rather have that than a new one anyway .

    I would start with an extractor for $15 then go from there.

    Buy it. Between a book called the Complete book of Glock published by POOTOMA and this forum you are gtg. I concur making sure the is no obvious flaw in the barrel and slide. I strongly suspect that a new ejector and some fresh mags will fix this gun. I too, would offer less than the 300 if I could pay cash money. The worse thing the can say is no.

    If you have a Glock authorized dealer in town, 9mm and .40 parts should usually be in stock and you can avoid shipping costs for $5 parts.

    Buy it and have a friendly DEALER ship it to Glock. They can send it USPS and then it costs about 7 bucks to ship. Glock replaces all the parts for free and pays to ship it back. Ask the dealer for a discounted transfer fee or ask them... "If I buy some ammo, solvent, powder, guncase...etc... will you help me ship in this busted Glock?"

    I'd offer them $200 OTD. If they didn't like the offer, I'd walk out.

    Does it have the checkering on the front and backstrap or is the whole handle the pebble finish?

    Inspect it. If OK...
    Offer $250. If you have to, settle for $275. Do it...

    Get a Glock Armorer to detail strip and clean it.
    There are lots of guys around who will do this for little or nothing.
    Buy and install a new extractor. Buy at least 1 new mag. and spring to re-build the other mag.

    If it's actually first generation instead of a 2nd generation.

    That got my attention! Looked at the GSSF site and nothing about that. Is that something the club can do?

    Why go through a dealer? If Im not mistaken you can ship it yourself. You can with Fedex anyway.

    If it has a 10 rd magazine with it, I would be willing to bet this is a 2nd generation. I doubt it is a true first gen. I would not pay 300 for a 2nd gen that does not work. Maybe 225-250. I know it would be easy to fix, but why pay more when you know it doesn't work. If it is a first gen, with light pebble finish all over it and not front and rear grip pattern, then yes I would buy it, then fix it. I just happen to have two NFML 1st gen mags that would go great with it.

    "Why go through a dealer? If Im not mistaken you can ship it yourself. You can with Fedex anyway"

    FFL to FFL can use USPS and ship using in a 4.95 flat rate priority box. With insurance and tracking, it is about 7.00. Fed Ex will be more expensive. In fact, Fed Ex and UPS "seem" to mandate overnight for handguns which drives the cost up considerably.

    BBV's strategy re having a DEALER handle the shipping is very sound, particulary if you are going to be doing business there anyway re ammo, case, cleaning stuff, holsters etc.

    Search google or the forum for "GSSF certificate" It seems as though the program changed as of yesterday though.
