Gen 1 Glock sold for $732.00

A Gen 1 GLock 17 just sold for $732.00 on gunbroker, one mag, no box, no papers. It looked to be in decent condition, but I have seen much better condition early model Glock's sell for a lot less. Is this a new trend for Gen 1's?

I am thinking maybe the serial number pushed its value up?

That is insane. Their is only one Glock I would consider paying that much for and that would be the very rare First gen Glock 19. I have several first gen G17's that are earlier then that date code and I paid $350.00-$400.00 for them.

I should contact the buyer and tell him I have some ocean front property in Vegas for sale.

Wow, no way I'd pay that much for a Gen 1.

The most expensive older Glock I purchased is my Gen 2 C serial number G24. It is in excellent condition, maybe a couple magazines fired, still clean with the factory copper lube. I haven't fired it. I wanted a second Gen 2 G24 in case my old A serial G24 ever broke. I gave $550 for it.

I recently found a Gen1 'AW' and have fallen in love with it...but that price is crazy.

I have one of the first shipped to the USA, for police evaluation. I was told that it actually came from Autrian military stock.

If you notice the case, it has the storage area for 17 rounds 0f 9mm. Also, you can see that the gun could be stored "hot", which was quickly considered a "no-no."

Glock Collector's Club

It was bought at Glock for $254. I bought four! Sold two to friends early-on , but I still have one NIB.

Back then Glock was a building with no security door, and waiting room that maybe held 6 cops. There was a big barrel of mags, and they always told you to grab four or five, as you walked out the door.

I have an AH G17 I paid $300 for I think. That's a crazy price.

Today I found a Gen 2 G20 with a 2 letter serial number, I think EH. It looked almost unfired and they were asking $469. I'm holding out for another G20 in OD when I find it.

Today the Kel Tec Sub2000 followed me home, G17 variant if course. I wouldn't have gotten the KT, but I haven't seen one of those in the flesh in a couple of years.

There's always someone who's willing to pay a crazy price for a certain item. You see things go for insane amounts on GunBroker every now and then. I wouldn't read much into it.

Actually,
I got him to throw in a second mag and got him down to $310.
I felt like I did pretty good on it.
