Im looking to buy a used glock 27 from a good friend of mine. He wants 150 for it with mags and night sights. Ive never fired a small pistol like that so im wondering if anyone has an opinion on it.

Is it stolen ? Is the barrel shot out of it ? Does it function properly ? Sounds awful cheap .

Yeah, I have a glock 27. It is a nice little gun. I put a Pearce grip extender on it, and it fits my hand pretty nicely. At 150 it sounds hot. Check that the S/N is on, and the same on the frame slide and bbl. That is either a great friend price, or it is fishy. You should get that or better on a trade in. I think the FBI ran 50k rounds through the glock in endurance testing.

$150 and not hot, does he have anything else he wants to sell? Its a good pistol as long as you understand what it was made for. Probably the only negative thing I have heard about the 27 is the additional strength of the recoil spring to offset the decreased mass of the shorter slide. Supposedly can be a bear for some people to rack. I have a 23 and have considered a 27, but the Sig P250 sub compact fits my hand better.

That is "too good to be true" cheap. He could get more than that at a pawn shop.

But yes, Glocks are great guns. I have a 17 that I bought on my 21st birthday.

Do a FFL transfer when doing it to save you any headaches down the road. $150 is kind of shady of a price. How good of a friend is this? The 27 is a nice little gun, has some unwanted muzzle flip due to the .40 round but easy enough to control after getting use. I myself dropped the 40 round and carry a g30 or my g19. .45 and 9mm.

What's the going rate these days for an anti-aircraft weapon in reasonably good shape? I'm a newbie to these things so I'd consider something used and preferably red in color.

Has anybody fired one?
I dont like the way they shoot but at that price it would be hard to pass up.

The "Safe action trigger" feels grainy and unsmooth. Thats why i dont like em.

But they are very accurate for what they are.

You are looking for a concealed carry weapon? It would do that job pretty well. except glocks are really chubby which i dont like.

Im turning 21 in a few months and im going to get my permit and buy a keltec PF9.
badass gun, cheap, 14oz or so (if your a weight weenie) and .8inches wide. Super thin single stack 9mm with 8+1 firepower :)

But you cant go wrong even with a heavily used glock. I would trust my life with it more so than a broken in kel-tec.

Then you should prolly save up and buy a Glock. I've had a G19, and I've also had and carried KelTecs. They've all worked flawlessly. I would look seriously at the P11. It's the most proven KelTec design. Besides, the trigger sucks on all of 'em. :p

Yeah i hear that. I wasnt trying to infer that the kel-tecs triggers were superior. I figure they are pretty bad (i have never shot one)

My logic is that if i have a slim lightweight pistol, i will be much more inclined to carry it everywhere. I have shot and held a few glocks and i just cant imagine them being carried as easy as the PF-9. My theory is that a pretty reliable gun that i have on my person all the time would be a better option than a 100% reliable gun that i only have on my person part of the time.

I have looked at the p-11 and it looks a bit wider so that deterred me from it. And i just dont think it has the "cool factor" of the PF-9

Glocks are okay, but if i really wanted to invest money in a nice semi auto i would buy a sig. But for $150 for a glock is a steal.

Dude, I've tried a Bersa .380, a NAA mini revolver in .22mag, a KelTec P32, a S&W .38 mdl 442, a Taurus PT25, and now I'm back on a KelTec P3at for my various carry guns. You're absolutely right: find one you'll carry (comfortably) always. :thumbsup: Oh, and I agree about the Sigs although I really dig CZs. :D

Sorry for the hijack op. The deal sounds too good to be true.

I've never heard Keltec and badass used in a sentence together before . :D
