I brought home my first Glock today and after a thorough cleaning (unnecessary), inserting the new grip plug, and changing to a 3.5# Ghost connector, I headed for the backyard with a box of 180 grain Winchester White Box to see what it would do. It cycled perfectly as you would all expect. I hit the gong every time from 25 feet. The trigger is smooth with a really short reset. I usually shoot .380, 9mm, and 45 and this is my first 40 cal. The recoil is just about equal to the 9mm. I sent an e-mail to Glock last week and got an answer back within an hour that my gun was imported in May of 1993. I find it difficult to believe that this 20 year old hasn't a single mark on it inside or out and I made the only barrel smile. I think I found a near virgin. I like it.

That is an excellent condition Gen 2 G23.

Gen2 Glocks in that type of shape do not show up very often.....nice find, great gun.

Some consider the 23 the best all-around Glock pistol as it can be concealed easily and still ride in a duty holster or perform on the nightstand....13+1 in .40 caliber is quite impressive for it's size.

Congratulations! I've shot hundreds of rounds with my Glock 23 3rd Generation and
I have had only one stovepipe with it. That by the way is the only malfunction I have
had with any of my Glocks. I also own a 21SF and a 26. Glocks are accurate and
dependable and those are the two most important things you need in a firearm.
I just wish Glock would do something about the looks of their guns and those thick
grips!

A stainless steel slide would dress 'em up (a little).

I have small hands and that is definitely a problem for me.

I have owned a number of Glock pistols, my first being a Glock 19 which I kept for over 10 years. When the night sights started to fade I sold the gun and told myself that I didn't like it because of the no manual safety offered on a Glock.

Since then I tried owning a few more, but just didn't get the feeling for any of them. Until I picked up and purchased a Glock 32 which is basically your 23 but in a 357Sig round. It has had the trigger job done on it, I then added a Glock mag well, metal guide rod and spring, it has night sights, and is dead on accurate. It has given me not one problem other than eating a lot of ammo because it is so pleasant to shoot. I then ordered a couple of magazines and barrels for it. I can now shoot the intended 357Sig as well as .40s&w and 9mm out of the same Glock.

This experience with my last purchased Glock led me to purchase a Glock 27 over this last weekend on Gunbroker. It is a Gen3 NIB and I gave $455 for it. I have already ordered a 9mm barrel for it, some pinky extension base plates, and a Grip X mag spacer so I can use the 9mm and 40s&w mags from my other Glock and have a higher capacity magazine in hand.

Enjoy your Glock, they are not much to look at, but have an aftermarket for accessories almost as large as an AR or Ruger 10/22. Though I do have to admit that the looks are growing on me a little. And anytime I want the Glock to look better all I have to do is set it along side of my HiPoint .40
