What would YOU pay? G19, gen 4, extras.

Recommended Posts

I'm just curious. A Gen 4 G19, hardly shot, steel sights, grip plug, 8 mags (one 10 rd, one happy stick).

$600-625 fair?

I looked at a new gen 5, at Specialty Arms in Lavergne, and it was priced 489.00 in their Thanksgiving day sale, which is a good sale.  Don't know what it would be today.  Over 500.00 for sure. That was with no extra goodies other than what came with a new gun in the box.

Maybe with the upgraded sights and number of mags.... maybe.  Would really depend on how much value you put on the mags. Max I'd pay for the the gun and 3 mags would be $500, my LGS had a very nice Gen4 with night sights in the case this afternoon for $489

When I sold a Glock 19 Gen 4 w/ TFX Sights a few months ago, I had a hard time getting $450. Maybe I sold it for $425, I don’t remember. 

The market is down.

Yeah, even with the mags I am not sure I could go over $450 regardless of the magazine count. More like $400 used to be honest. I am a 3rd Gen guy who is about to bite the bullet and go 5th Gen though. I always hated the finger grooves. I will keep my several 3rd Gens though.

With 8 mags and steel sights??? Sure, Bob.

You asked for the opinion, just my $0.02, Bob.

That won't matter for most people. You will have a real hard time getting $600. You'd be better off selling the gun for $450 and the mags separately.

$300, at most.  I'd be happy for the mags but I'd have to throw away that awful grip immediately and buying a replacement isn't cheap.

I just don't see this going for more than $500.  8 mags isn't a big deal to me.  3 is all I ever want for pistols.  I've never worn a mag out yet.

While I don't feel inclined to buy a new pistol, I wouldn't even think about it above $500.  On the secondary market, I'm out for deals, so the price has to entice me.  Plus, while I'm not out to screw someone, I never feel obligated to pay for the value a person adds onto the gun with after market parts when it comes resale time.  Then the add-ons are subjective in value based on the potential buyer; steel sights vs. night sights, for example.

A lot of individual gun sellers need to learn re-sale is almost always going to involve a loss of capital you sunk into the gun.  Trying for breakeven isn't conductive to a sale.

You do not know how many times I want to put this into a sales ad these days.

About a year ago, bought a Gen2 G19 at a good price, then replaced very dim sights with new AmeriGlo sights & replaced springs. Can buy a new one for less than I have in this one... but it has served well for armorer training and is my EDC.

My take, on guns still in production or still available everywhere, I try to follow the 80% rule meaning if buying used the used "asking" price has to be <80% of what I can buy it new for.   One cannot expect to get new pricing or close to it, when there is no warranty provided and there is just peace of mind of the gun ownership history when buying new, if used there is always that slight risk.  Magazines, even Glock OEMs, if one is patient can be found in the $18-$20 with free shipping from internet retailers.   The fun sticks can be found too relatively not much more in premium.  So to summarize, a new Glock Gen IV 19 can be found <$500 (Grab a gun) plus local FFL fee and the state $10 fee.  You can do the math from there.

      I'm 18 and a new gun owner. As of now I have a pretty basic collection. One AR, one 870, a few .22s, the works. However, the obvious hurdle to owning a handgun is the federal restriction on purchasing a handgun from a licensed firearms dealer when you're under the age of 21. Buying a handgun from a private seller, however, is totally legal.
       Sadly, that limits my options dramatically. I can't have a gun from a listing shipped to me since that would require an ffl transfer, so I am limited to sellers in my area. Even then, most of the listings I've seen in my area explicitly demand a HCP, which, being under 21, I can not obtain. 
       I'm aware for many people this is to protect themselves in the event the buyer is a criminal, but this comes off as really hostile to any 18-20 year olds who want to exercise their gun rights. If I can buy an AR easily I fail to see why it should be so difficult for me.

      Hi all,
      I just got into handguns after moving away from a state that made them impossible to get.
      Are there any tips and tricks to get less expensive 9mm ammo for target practice purposes? I currently get them at Academy and its about .175 per shot. At the range I typically go through 150-200 rounds which starts to get pricey!
      Thanks in advance for the advice.

      I am admittedly stuck on Glock and Glock-like handguns.  With more than 25 years of experience with them, carrying them, shooting them, etc. I am just not going to get away from them anytime soon.  Lord knows I've tried.  Not because there's anything wrong with them, but because I like new experiences as much as the next guy does.
      THIS however is not a Glock.  There's nothing Glock about it.  Not a single Glock part rests within it.  It is 100% Zev Technologies from stem to stern, including every little piece and spring within it.  Hence the O and Z in OZ9.  Original Zev.  Not a Glock.
      It is however familiar in many ways to a Glock shooter, albeit with the dial turned up to eleven and then ripped off, thrown in your face, kicked out the window, and stomped upon outside on the sidewalk.  Zev amped it up like they hated that dial and it owed them money.
       
      This particular configuration is very similar to my beloved Glock G45.  It has the compact G19 length barrel and slide, with the G17 length grip.  Unlike a Glock it has a 1911-esque grip angle and uses a serialized internal chassis much like the Sig p320 does.  The chassis is a solid hunk of machined metal that contains Zev's take on a Glock-style sear, their fantastic trigger and trigger bar, the rails upon which the slide moves, and I guess an ounce of black magic.
      All it takes is pushing out one small pin to remove the chassis from the grip module and turn this into a G19 sized compact gun.  Which I've done for summer carry.
       
      It shoots like a dream.  The trigger clocks in at 2.69 LBS on Lyman gauge averaged across 5 pulls.  It tracks smoothly under recoil and doesn't move an iota off target unless YOU move it.  If you miss, it's the shooter - not the gun.  You just have to own that fact and accept it.
       
      I've heard my friend Dr. Sherman House ask another shooter if their Zev OZ9 was really all that or if it was just a Camry with nice wheels.  FUNNY!  I had the same questions as I considered buying it.  But, I'm glad to say it's got the goods to back up the sticker price.  This is very much a Porsche wearing a Camry suit.
       
      There are dumber ways to spend $1500.  I dig the hell out of it.
