Does anyone know if Glocks can be collectable?  The reason I'm asking is I have an unfired Glock 19 with the nitro proof marks all over the place.  I'm not sure how old she is either but I have had her since 2004.

I have one of the 20th anniversary 17s NIB, I bought it solely as a collectible.

I have no digital camera but envision a normal looking brand new 19.  On the top of the barrel block behind he caliber designation is  eagle with a NVP POR, on the right side of the slide is an eagle with a NPV and a Glock logo and on the right side of the frame above the trigger guard is another eagle with a NPV stamped into the polymer.  The gun has night sights and says Made in Austria.  Again, I have never fired her but am thinking of doing so and using her as a CCW weapon.  Should I shoot her or just get the 33 model that I want.

Shoot it, almost all GLOCKs up until only a few years back had the marks.

Check out the serial number research project over at Glocktalk.com

I saw an OLD ASS G17 in the gun store last weekend.  Gen 1 with all kinds of funky markings on it.  $299 for the pistol, but it was ROUGH, Son!!!

So far I have not noticed a Glock collector's market.

Ah, I see.  Must be a big city thing, hasn't made it out to Iowa yet.  I feel so left out.

So my Dec 93 G17 is now worth twice what I paid for it?

I can neither confirm or deny that.

Tucked back in my closet is a first generation G17 (CYxxx Serial Number) with the original box, manual, and 2 original mags. In the store I used to work, we were talking about how the collector guns of today (pre-64 Winchesters, 1903s, SxS shotguns, etc.) were a dime a dozen back in the day. Everyone had one or knew someone who did. Now they are more rare and worth, in some cases, quite a bit. So we thought what guns today would be collectibles later. I came up with the idea of a first generation Glock 17. I hope my prediction is right years from now.

My letter code does not show up.  I'm gonna try and call Glock and get some info.

Didn't they make a "Euro" only .380 or 9x18 or some such a while back? I guess a GI in Germany could've bought one and brought it home. Or would the Clinton AWB have F'd that up

This might help ID what gen your G19 might be, it's a good place to start. Now if it is a 1st gen I would be interested. Kind of falls into the same catagory as a G22 with a factory external safety.

The problem is that glock made bazzillions of the same thing, and each generation improves.

For example, S&Ws are collectable because they have a varied line, limited runs, and the older guns were made to a higher standard - i.e. registered magnums>pre numnerical>pinned and recessed numerical>post P&R but still forged>MIM stuff>MIM with lock.

Glocks go the other way - they get better.

Rarely is a gun valuable because it is old - old, rare, better made than current crop, etc is what does it.

17L- it is one of the lowest production glocks...bottom line if you buy a gun and think  your going to shoot it and sell it at a higher price your incorrect. guns take several decades to appreciate in value. that is unleass your buying a colt SAA first/second gen.

I'd like to have .380 Glock just for fun since I have other .380's already and reload for it.  Not to be for the USA I guess

very true -

and to put a point on the issue, the 17L can be had for $550-600 on Glocktalk fairly regularly.

I have a early 22 Austrian with no import marks that was my first handgun. I still shoot it on accasion, but Id think it may be worth something in the future if I keep maintainence up.

I have a G22 that has no serrations on one side.  I posted pics of it in the past.  I shoot the heck out of it.
