Does anyone have experience with a Glock factory rebuild? I want to get my first GLOCK, and I found out that the factory rebuilds also carry a lifetime warranty like the new ones. The savings could be more than $100. Any thoughts?

if you have the money buy new of course, if not used will work...

It's not just a question of money, but value. I can afford the NIB price, but for the same amount I can buy a refurb with extra magazines and ammo. The shop was really pushing the used, despite the fact that they would have to order it.

why buy new when it's a glock. Pointless...glocks are work horses and it's been "rebuilt" by glock who better than the maker to rebuild it. Used glocks are good deals.

I have a rebuit G19 I bought back in 97, and it has never failed me. I also like having "MPDC" stamped in the side of my slide. It kinda makes me feel like its special.

I have a Rebuild, no problems w/ it. I picked it up in '99. The price was right ~$400 w/ 2 17 round mags. That was about a $200 savings back then w/ the cost of Preban mags. What does it come w/ for mags??? A guy @ work was going to buy on last month ~$425 w/3 10 rd mags. Not a good deal if you ask me when you add the cost buying 2 new noban mags ($40-50).

IF it comes w/ standard mags and you save $100 then that's fine.

The shop people seemed to think it would come with "standard" 10 round mags. I would like the normal capacity mags, but I can get NIW factory GLOCK mags for $20 a piece now, non LEO marked. The biggest thing I want to have is the night sights, which may be harder to come by on a refurb. Is it true that most of these would be law enforcement trade ins?

When I said "standard" I meant the mags the gun was made for, not the bastardized Clinton mags. If you are only saving 100 bucks and then have to spend $40 for new mags, and then have to have NS installed, not my idea of a good deal. Just get new one w/ NS and be done with it. Just make sure the new ones have "real" mags.

I want the Glock 17. I will only use it for the range and home. I thought I'd pick up a couple of those 31 round G18 mags for the range!

I am waiting on a price on the used and what mags it will come with. I think if it comes wih Clinton mags, it wil tip the scale towards new.
