I know I'd keep my Sig till I could find another Glock. The chrome is a deal-breaker for me and I like the Gen 3's & 4's better. Your Sig is worth more than that 2nd Gen gun since it's been modified. Chromed?! Who would do that to a perfectly good Glock?

We had a bunch of guys getting their Glocks Electroless (satin) Nickled back in the early 2000's. They were not too bad until you tried to shoot in bright sunlight

Without seeing both pistols, I cannot be positive. The $$ numbers come close, within 50 or less. The factory mags add up too. If you want something new, like the Glock, and trust the custom finish, ask $75 plus trade, then play by ear.

I just got another offer for a gen 3 19. Bought just last year has night sights and a trigger job. Guy wants trade plus $100. I have decided I don't want the gen 2 17 as the more I look at it the less I like it. Just way too flashy for me

How about an even trade?

That G17 Gen2 probably was a LE trade-in with lots of holster wear. Which might be why the guy had the slide chromed.

I bought a G22 Gen2 LE trade-in a few years ago for $300 and the slide was worn to the white near the muzzle. Otherwise it's a fine pistol and these Gen2 trade-ins are probably worth around $350 or so. Chroming the slide is a waste of money and as others pointed out could affect reliability. I'd pass on that one.

I'd go for that- Haggle first of course -
The 19's are very popualar right now & a great carry gun & it'd be a ez trade if you didn't grow to like it- JIMO

Ended up doing a straight trade for a gen 3 19. Feels great in my hands and can't wait to shoot it. Thanks to everyone for their input
