Glock 19 LEO trade-in's?

Anyone know of a vendor that sells LEO G19 trade-in's? I checked with AIM Surplus, none in stock. Thanks!

You'll see mostly 22s and 23s these days...

Wish I had better news...

I donít know of one. Doubt youíll find many ex-LE 19s as many are shifting to 9mm from .40 so most of the PD trade-in Glocks youíll encounter will be 22s and 23s, but good luck

For the additional price of about three boxes of premium ammo, you can buy a new one.

All sellers of used 19's are mighty proud of them.

I'd look on local gun boards and gunshows - most of the LE trade are over priced by time you pay shipping/transfer fees.

Thanks for all replies! AIM will notify me, if/when, they are back in stock. I'll post back, if that occurs....

Pick up a $300 23 and drop in a $50-$80 9mm barrel.

My last 23 (Gen 3, LNIB) Cost me $275

That's what I did. Have both a Gen 2 and a Gen 3 G23 that work 100% with a conversion barrel (Stormlake I think) and G19 (17, etc.) mags. I think I paid $300 for the Gen 2 and $350ish for the Gen 3 a while back. Then just recently I picked up a $300 Gen 2 G19 at a local pawn emporium. Which is dang strange because usually this particular outfit is dang proud of their handguns and Glocks in particular. I actually like the Gen 2s, I have no use for finger grooves and light rails on a compact piece.
