    I've been looking for a G19 for a while and think I may have found one. This guy is offering me a 3rd generation Glock 19 with nightsights, 3 15rd hicap magazines, all the original paperwork, box, etc. for $500.

    He claims he bought it about 1.5 years ago and it has slightly less than 1,000 total rounds through it.

    Is $500 a good deal?

    Here are 2 pics of it:

    I'd really appreciate any replies and advice from some of the more experienced Glock owners on here like NISMO and whatnot :bigthumb:

    OH YEAH, he also said he has a "recoil buffer" installed on it, what is that and can I easily remove it? I want the gun to be stock.

    I can only buy from a private party in Florida since i'm over 18 but under 21, so that basically rules out buying a new one from any FFL.

    Well the thing is, he lives 4 hours away from me and said that he is willing to drive the 4 hours to make the deal, so I feel kinda bad asking him to go lower on the price since he'll be driving 4 hours :rofl:.

    WTF are you talking about "you feel bad"? Business is business, make him a lower offer, if he wants the cash he'll make the drive, if he doesn't he won't. I don't think that is a particularly good deal @ $500, so if he balks you're not missing out on anything.

    There are enough out there that this doesn't have to be the one. If he wants to dump it that bad, he'll make it work.

    some guy around here was selling a G19, factory night sights, 2 high cap mags, 150 rounds through it for $400.

    would have picked it up if the d-bag replied to my email.

    I'd offer him $450 or so and meet him halfway so he wouldn't have to drive so far.

    I've been searching for weeks, haven't found anything. I've posted on almost every Florida gun forum, ARFCOM, glocktalk, etc. and went to 2 gun shows this past weekend and found nothing :hs:

    haha, i've seen ur ads all over the place. i'd say if you're willing to pay that much, go for it. not much difference between 450 and 500.

    Your under 21 but over 18 ? So how is this deal legal at all ?

    The deal sucks! I saw a new gun for $500 in a store today..
    Used one was $430 with 200 rounds thru it

    I would say 450 if it's in great shape. My 19 new was 475 and I know people get better deals than that.

    A guy right near me just sent me this e-mail with this offer....

    It sounds great but honestly I just want a stock weapon that isn't tricked out and don't know what half of these addons even mean. He said to make him an offer for all of this, I have NO IDEA what to offer since he's including a holster and other stuff as well.

    What would you guys reasonably pay for a package deal like this and what do you think of the modifications he has on the gun?

    I think you're correct to want a stock weapon.
