    I have a chance to buy a very old GLock 19 (around 10-15 years old). It is great sondition, has not even been shot in the last 8 years. What do ya'll think?

    Without stating a price, it would be hard for any of us to answer that question.

    If it is a first generation Glock 19 I would buy it in a heartbeat. Most likely it isn't because there are only a handful in this country and it would be worth much more than your average G19 to a Glock collector.

    There are aged guns out there w/ tens of thousands of rounds through them, and they continue to operate. Glocks are one of 'em that can share the Timex slogan.

    :stupid:

    If you do buy it make sure to take it apart so you can check, clean and lube the correct parts of the gun before firing it. Yes it is a Glock but 8 years of sitting around is a long time. If it wasn't cleaned before being "stored" a lot of the residue has probably coagulated into some sort of sludge.

    Good luck.

    My carry Glock probably has about 20K+ rounds through it. And I still carry it. I doubt this one has been shot any where near enough to worry about.

    1. Dry fire it and make sure it goes “click”.
    2. Make sure there are no bulges in the barrel (shine a light from the chamber end and look down the barrel).
    3. If you have access to a range, meet there for the purchase and shoot it. If it doesn’t fire or blows up don’t buy it.

    Seriously, it's very hard to hurt a Glock.

    They did a test on Ruger P-Series and they took it apart after 25k rounds it showed no wear on any of the components, it was like new.

    i checked around but was not able to tell if you could replace the stock or frame of glock. I think that is the only thing that i am worried about. I can rebuild everything else, right...

    my Glock 19 was dated back to the early 90's, I bought it as a used police trade in, the only problems I have had with it are a broken slide lock, and trigger spring, which were both replaced for free by the armorer I bought it from. Aside from that, it's been awesome.
