Please help with a trade offer
I am looking for some help on a trade from you glock lovers out there as I have no experience with a glock. The trade is my sig sauer sp2022 which I don't really like bought a year and a half ago for a gen 2 glock 17. The 17 appears to be in good condition but I'm not sure on the value since they are now in gen 4. Any help would bore much appreciated.

A used Glock 17, with multiple mags and original case, is probably valued in the $400 range +/-, depending on condition. IMO

Palmetto State is running the SP2022 on sale right now for $350, so shipping and FFL would get you to $400 - $425 on their gun.

Locally the SP2022 is retailing about $525.

Why is the slide so shiny in your pictures? It might affect the value.

My $0.02 I wouldn't do it because of the chrome

Functionality reasons or just looks? I was actually hoping to trade the slide off to someone who would want a chromed one. I Don't really like it because I'm not a flashy guy at all.

My concern is with the added thickness and where it rides on the rails and chipping or flaking. Heat should not be an issue though.

But be patient I'm sure somebody else will shine in on with maybe another opinion.
I've heard of people polishing it . To get the same effect

Look at the edges of the slide very carefully. Chrome (bright nickel) will not adhere to steel. The slide must first be plated with copper and then nickled. If not done right, it will chip off pretty quickly. The tolerances should not be much of an issue.

I just do not care for the 2nd Gen Glocks. No light rail and the crappy finger grooves? Give me a Gen 1 or 3
