So what do you guys think a Glock 21 gen 4 with only 200 rounds through it would be worth? I bought it 2 weeks ago new and I'm considering selling it..it would come with everything a new one would have (3 mags, backstraps, case, etc....)

You could get $500 easy here in Utah for that glock


10mm is all you need for your defensive needs.

Well, considering that a 21 is chambered in .45.........

21 = 45 yes you would be correct

Around here it would probably sell quickly at 400 and might take a while at 500.

Even with no back strap it is still a little too big for my hands, and as a result I am having to strain just to point and shoot it

When I bought my .45 I shot a G21 and a Sig P220 side by side. I went with the Sig P220. Being a single stack mag, the P220 is a little slimmer than the G21, but itís still a big gun.

Yea that single stack mag makes a huge difference, I shot my friends 5" XD .45 side by side with my 21...the Springfield was significantly slimmer and (for me) more comfortable.

Gonna depend on what the local shops are selling them for. Around here we can get them for decent prices new. Gotta figure the buyer won't have to pay tax either, so you got them there.

If you haven't cleaned out the copper colored lube, I would pay somewhere around the GSSF price in a face to face buy. Maybe +5% since I save the 10% sales tax here.

A Glock with the number of rounds you say is as good as a brand new one - you've removed .00001% of its life as a trade off to starting the smooth out process that comes from shooting it. As long as it isn't a lemon and hasn't been dropped or otherwise damaged.

Around here a dealer would offer you 350/375 and put it in the case for 450/475. The guy I usually deal with would knock 10% off for cash. :)

K, I'm new to glock, I noticed the copper colored lube and have heard about it when talking about cleaning a glock, but what is the significance of it? It's just lube right? Sure if it is present on a used gun you know that it hasn't been shot much but couldn't that also mean that maybe the person cleaning it didn't do a good enough job? Sure it's a glock and if you pull the trigger it will go bang, but I clean EVERYTHING off of my guns and then lube/oil them (hasn't caused issues yet, no gun that I have has had a malfunction) honestly that copper lube was gone after the first time I cleaned it (after 100 rds)

Honestly the gun is uncomfortable in my hand, sure I haven't shot it that much and I can be argued that I'm just not used to it, but every other gun that I have shot just felt more natural in my hand from the first time I picked it up, nothing against the gun, glock makes a great firearm but other weapons just feel better in my hand

That copper-colored material is a combination of BOTH lubrication AND anti-seize compound. As a lubricant alone, there are other lubes that do the job better, but the anti-seize capability is important in a new gun. It also has an important advantage for a commercial operation: it will not evaporate during storage. Since a new Glock may possibly sit in storage for years, that longevity can outweigh other attributes.

I like to run 1000 or so rounds before cleaning the factory lube out - as samurairabbi mentioned it contains an anti seize compound. This works it in. It's debatable whether it matters, but I like to do it this way. So a gun that still has the grease is basically as good as a new one to me, since someone else has done part of the breakin - you just need to make sure they aren't passing along some problem they found or created.

No offense, but it seems to me like you didn't even rent the gun, let alone handle the gun prior to buying. Would have saved you a lot of money if you did so.

I'm from Ontario Canada. My local supplier just sold a used Gen3 G21, in decent shape. for $650! Demand is high while supply is frightfully low.

In California's San Francisco Bay Area that fine weapon is selling NIB for between $579.00 and $609.00. And that's with reduced mag capacity of 10 rds.:crying:

$500.00 One pistol, and if things go well, the box and two magazines. Fear is not a reason to gouge your fellow Citizen. DO NOT DEAL WITH ANYONE WHO ACTS THIS WAY.

Just re-read my post. I meant to give broad advice, not offend anyone. Gotta get the 'tone' of conversation thru better. Still new.

I was just about to mention the XD45. I have the XD45 4" model and love it. I like it enough that it's kept from buying a G21 and I'm a Glock fan. 13+1 same as the G21, but with a better trigger. :cool:

Nice pistol! I just missed one for $400 with 2 mags and 2 boxes of ammo. It's not tupperware, but a fine weapon no less.

Trade for a G36, which is a single stack. Thinner and smaller but .45 cal. High demand now for high cap mags. 36 holds 6 +1. Better fitting gun, Glock reliability and 2 mags. I would trade you but I LOVE MY 36!! :cool:7 rounds from 1 mag is enough if your gun fits you won't need a bunch of rounds.
