    I am going to be picking one up from a local person this weekend (maybe later today!) and I need to know of anything I should look for (it is used, not sure how used yet, never seen it.) before I buy it. Any Glock-specific wear points on it? Supposed to be factory stock with just some night sites (unknown brand/style)


    Also wheres the cheapest place to get pinky plates for the Glock30 (45acp) mags? And some fullsize 45acp (G21?) mags w/ the grip extension.

    It's a Glock, it's in .45, it's little.

    apparently people have issues with the magazine seating and it causes misfeeds occasionally. :dunno:

    Somehow i missed this one...

    The only major thing to check on a used glock is the barrel. Take the slide off, pull out the recoil rod, then the barrel. Run your fingers along the outside of the barrel and look to make sure their is no bulge. This would be an indication of a squib. That's when a round is fired and the bullet lodged in the barrel due to bad ammo, reload with no powder, etc). Then another round is fired behind it. The accuracy of the gun at this point is completely shot. Check the crown of the barrel to make sure it is not chipped.

    More minor things to check is to lock up of barrel to slide. Push down on the barrel hood, wiggle the muzzle to check for front end shake. Since this is a stock glock barrel there will be plenty of both. This is more of a check for match fit barrels. Still you don't want anything excessive. Twist the slide back and forth and check slide to frame fit. Again being stock it will have plenty. Still you don't want something loosey goosey. Slide to frame fit on glocks only affect trigger pull weight. Tighter is better. Lastly when you dry fire the gun, if you see the rear of the slide being lifted up as you pull the trigger that's a sign that the gun is super loose. I've shoot the snot out a Glock 35 until it got to this point. Still shoots tight, just affects the trigger job.
