    Glock 19 Gen 4 purchase


    I am going to be purchasing my 2nd Glock and have decided to go with a Glock 19 gen 4. I can find it locally for $575 plus tax plus background check. Last time I bought my glock various people on the forum stated I may have paid too much, what is a good price for this gun and where would you purchase? Thanks in advance.

    Price is subjective and is varied by location as well. I generally tell people to stay away from the big box stores because around here, they always have the highest prices. I found a great local gun store, that's one exit away from me and I've bought 99% of all NEW firearms from them over the past 5 years or so. I buy quite a few, generally several a year so I've come to be a regular and get really good deals there. My out the door price on a Gen 4 would probably be less than $475.00 but again, this isn't the price he is going to charge John Doe who walks in and buys one.

    Then you have online sales, where you could probably find a better price but then you have to pay for shipping and transfer fees, which may put you right back up to the local price.

    My suggestion would be to try and find a good local gun store near you that treats you well with decent prices and start buying from them on a go forward basis. Go in there regularly to get them used to seeing your face and send friends and family in there as well, with you if possible, making sure to point out that you brought them to visit your favorite LGS. That will generally garner some favor in your direction with the employees and you'll probably start getting a little better deal here and there.

    In my area, a Gen 4 can go from 539 to 560.... The gun store I like the most and will probably buy all my guns from prices all Gen 4's at 550.. So little higher then what the prices are around here in SW Indiana.... Cheaper than dirt has gen 4 19's for 549... Im not sure what the transfer would cost you and the shipping (I'm not sure how purchasing online works exactly..) so really if you bought online figure if a Local gun store said they would transfer it for $20 your right about the same price without shipping... Like I said I'm not sure how much the transfer is, I know a big gun store in Kentucky near me will transfer guns to Indiana stores for $20 so i just used it for an example

    I paid $475 for mine about 6 or 8 months ago, but like The Law said I buy all mine from one LGS and I am in there regularly. They know me by name.

    $480 to $500 out the door is a good going price. Check out Gunbroker.com as well as some of the other internet sites.

    What I have done in the past is to get an online quote for a comparable gun. Take the printed quote, and add sales tax, plus background check fee, plus transfer fee and $40 for shipping. If the numbers are close, buy local.... If not ask the local to either match the verifiable quote or order it from the online seller.

    Communication is the key, I like to keep my money local and it's worth a "little" to have a relationship with a local shop. But like my dad told a car salesman once... "I'm gonna let you make a meal off me, but start thinking sandwich instead of steak and lobster!" I wanted a 3" Ruger GP100 and the LGS never had one in the case, always 4". One day while popping in to look, the owner asked me if he could talk with me. He noticed that I had been in a few times and he suspected I was looking for something, and he just wanted to ask if there was "something special" I was looking for. I told him about the GP and that I saw it online for $513 from whoever. He took me to his office, looked it up from his distributor and showed me the correct gun priced at $599. I brought up the "other" price and he said "don't worry about that number, I'm just checking it's the right model." I told him it was, he did the math on the tax and fees and worked out that if he sold it to me for $479, it was a little better than the online quote. I offered to pay him "something", I wasn't trying to screw him, and he explained that based on his actual cost, the hold back from the manufacturer and the "spiff" from the distributor, he was "doing fine".

    Damn that treatment has cost me a lot of money over time.....

    I think my G19 Gen 4 was $549 and I might have done a little better somewhere else but this gun dealer stands behind everything he sells, no questions asked. So what would he have to stand behind with a Glock? Or what could go wrong with a Glock? Most likely, nothing. But I like his attitude, his service and he appreciates your business so I don't mind paying him a little extra. Just my 2cents.

    Like theLaw and others said, I try to always buy from a local gun shop... I found a local dealer that sells a lot of blue label Glocks to LEO's... He also honors GSSF and Glock Armorer discounts... and gives good service... and is friendly... Since I found his store (Coles Gun Shop, Clearwater, FL) I have bought all of my guns from him whether they are blue label or not...

    Another place to find good prices on guns is local gun shows... Make sure you ask them to give you "their best price" because they usually leave the MFG sticker on them... Some people don't ask and pay a whole lot more!
