What is my Glock Worth

The Glock series of handguns are one of the most recognizable firearms ever produced. Made famous by their prevalent use in military and law enforcement as well as civilian defensive use and competition, Glocks are the most popular contemporary handgun.

Historical Context

Invented in the 1980s, the reliability and simplicity of Glocks spurred the rise in popularity of polymer, striker fired handguns that prevail today. Because of its popularity in film and TV along with its prevalent use with law enforcement and militaries, it is a highly sought after gun by many. Its numerous models and different variables give them a wide range of value.

Glock has a diverse production with varied models and calibers that affect the value of the pistol. From the Glock 44 chambered in .22LR to the Glock 40 chambered in the powerful 10mm, the value and demand varies in the used market. Modifications to Glocks can also increase or decrease value. Companies such as Zev Technologies and Agency Arms make specialized slides and barrels that can easily be swapped with the OEM parts.

Glock has five generations of firearms as it continuously improve its products. Certain generations are worth more dependent on the buyers geographical location. For example, Gen4 and Gen5 Glock are illegal in CA. Californians therefore are willing to pay a premium price for Gen3 Glocks. For this reason, sellers of Gen3 Glock 17s and 19s would likely fetch a higher price with CashMyGuns.com than a local dealer.

Determining Value

A major factor on determining value for any firearm comes from the condition of the gun. If it is in mint condition with little finish wear from handling, the gun can retain a good portion of its retail value. If more usage is apparent and the gun has scuffs, dents or scratches on the slide or polymer lower, the value will lower with each imperfection. Same goes with the metal parts, the more scratches and faded bluing finish that becomes present on the gun from handling and usage can greatly diminish its value. The takeaway is that as the condition of the firearm worsens, the less it will be worth when re-sold.

Another factor that contributes to a re-sale value is what accessories comes with the gun. Depending on the amount of magazines, their capacity and if it comes with all original packaging/case and accessories, the re-sale value can increase from 10 – 20 percent depending on the specific model.
