Found a Glock 26 fresh out of factory refurbishment today in St. Augustine. Came with usual box, lock, extra mag, full warranty, papers, etc for $425. Decided to take it. Not a mark or sign of wear on it. Can't wait to feed it next weekend! Have a brother in S. Carolina that does reloading who's going to shower me with several boxes of ammo--can't beat that!

I carry a Glock30 .. compact .45 .. IWB. I'm a small guy and carry everyday, and it doesnt print with a T over it. Wish I had something smaller, but this is what I'm working with right now and loving it.

What's the warranty on a refurbished Glock?

I was told at the shop it had a one year warranty, same as new. Doing more research on the net I have read that and also claims of a lifetime warranty. We'll see about that--I'm calling Glock this week to get the real scoop. Stay tuned.

Okay, here's another update. I got to feeling a little uncomfortable with the refurb and after speaking to Fred at Glock technical services, decided to see what I could do with the store owner. We dickered, bickered, and haggled and then settled on a deal. I got full refund (no restocking fee of 20%) to apply to a reduced price on the new Glock. Will pick it up Saturday. :dancingbanana

Hmmmm...what did Fred at Glock have to say. Sounds like they don't care too much for the factory refurb job. Anyway, a brand spanking new one is only a little more in the first place. That dealer made a pretty good profit from a $275-300 gun. Everyone I know that has Glock's will tell you the same thing "I don't know about the waranty cause I have never seen or heard of one breaking". My gun shop can replace every part inside of any Glock and the parts are anywhere from $1.50 to $20.00. So if anything did happen I could get it fixed on the spot for very cheap. You will also find that accesories for Glock's are very easy to find.

Just like SgtLogan says parts are all over the internet and they are one of the easies pistols in the world to work on. One fellow on our team has a metal frame Glock that he built himself just to shoot in the league with. It sure feels good to me and he shoots 100's fairly consitent with it. I wouldn't hesitate to buy a refurbed Glock.:thumsup

I got a little jealous of RoadGlider and had to get a Glock 26 also. Just kidding. This I picked up today for my lady and now she is asking for the things that glow in the dark :confused:........oh (night sights).

Here is the new baby.

Nice. Now, you're going to have to practice or go to the range now so that she doesn't start outshooting you.

Congrats on the new Glock, NkmG19. You have great taste there!! Brought mine home this past weekend, too. The used/refurbed Glock was pretty much a new gun in that the frame had been replaced for sure--not sure what else might have been fixed. But with new Glock 26s running around $50-$75 more I figured, why not start with a new one. I learned a bit from the tech guy and from my cousin, who is quite knowledgeable on handguns. And as SgtLogan alluded to--you can fix a Glock pretty cheaply should it ever need it. Anyway, I'm happy.
