    I have been looking for some time to purchase a Gen II G-19. I just do not like the finger grooves, they don't fit me right. I have finally found one, in real good shape, but not sure that I want to pay the price. No extras, just the gun and mags. By the time I pay taxes, shipping and the price of the gun I will have just about $425 in it. What says the mighty Glock brain trust, yes or no??

    They're not getting any more common than they are right now. If it's what you want, buy it.

    I need to pick up another Gen3 before everything goes to the Gen4 profile.

    If not having grooves means that much then for sure get it... Glocks last a long time if cared for properly which is why they do hold their value pretty good. The price might be "high" but it's not in the stratosphere.

    I was looking at Gen 2 G-19's as well. On Gunbroker they are selling for around $500 plus shipping and taxes. Sound like you found a good deal if it's in good condition.
    The older G-19's are eligible for several upgrades, like the firing pin ***'y, but you don't hear about any actual trouble here.
    I decided to go with a new 3rd gen because I could not find a 2nd gen for under $500 and I can live with the fingergrooves. I have my FFL looking for one now, because I'm not a fan of the 4th gen's.
    $425 total?, sounds pretty good to me.

    Glocks are really tough and all the innards can be replaced cheaply anyway. So I would say a used Glock is just as good as a new one if there are no cracks in the gun and no unacceptable cosmetic issues. I prefer the gen 2 G17 and have had no problems, even with the older ones. The price sounds pretty good to me.

    Get it. A few 'deals' come around once in a while but why wait?

    I bought my first Glock a few years ago from the same guy, it's a 23 and I really like it. But I only had about $370 in that one so I thought this was a little high. Just think I really need a matching 9mm to go with the.40. Or as my wife would say, "need, how do you think it's a need"? Have to do something with the few thousnd rounds of 9mm sitting around!

    No, why buy a 9mm only when you can buy a G23 and have a .40cal, .357sig and 9mm all in 1 gun:wavey:
