I hope someone can help me as i am contemplating the purchase of a Glock 22 Gen4 in a small gun shop.
The owner said the gun has been recently been purchased and returned. I am not sure why it was returned but after handling the gun i am really serious on pulling the trigger on the purchase. He is asking 499$ for it. I had him open up the gun and there was still the red greece from the manufacturer in it. which tells me the prior owner only shot it once and returned it.
I really want to purchase it today and i feel he may sell it bc Semiautos are scarce in NJ. (which is were i reside). He stressed that he may not have it as the guns are litterly flying off the shelf.
If anyone can give me any feed back on issues with the spring or any other issues that they may know of i would greatly appreciate it.
I have not had any spring issues in my g22. Glock sent me a new captured guide spring rod assembly at no charge. When I requested the new spring assembly I had already shot more than 1000 rounds. I felt confident that the original gen 4 guide spring assembly was reliable and never had a problem. Glock informed me that most of the issues with gen 4 came from the glock 19 and in some cases the 17. Despite the initial issues, I'd highly recommend a gen 4 glock in any flavor.
