Glock 21 LEO trade-in from AIM***pics added 2.9

I bought one of these Glock 21s from AIM. It's my second Glock pistol, after my Gen 3 19. It came in yesterday and I'm happy with it so far (haven't shot it yet). There is very little wear, mostly the edge of the night sights and front edge of the slide from holster wear. The Glock night sights are still pretty bright. It came in the Glock box, along with the grip inserts, unopened envelope with manual and testing brass (in small envelope marked 11.5.12). The left side looks almost new but there is a fairly big scratch on the right side grip. Looks like it was holstered and rubbed up against something sharp. No matter to me, now I won't worry about that first scratch.

I'll get some pics tomorrow and post them here in case someone might be interested in getting one for themselves. Lol, it's just a Glock and if you've seen one I guess you've seen them all but then you can see the condition of a typical pistol they're offering.

Pretty guns are the ones you show to your friends.

Ugly guns are the ones you show to your enemies.

Yes sir! I've got some of both.

I've added a few pics of the pistol, as I received it from AIM. See original post.

I have a Gen3 21 that Iíve owned since early 2004 and it has seen a tremendous amount of ammo over the years. The 21 is my favorite .45 handgun out there and has been for some time (sorry 1911 guys). Youíll get lots of good use out of your new 21.

Thanks for the reply VALMET. I'm looking forward to trying it out soon. Several shooting buddies have owned a 21 over the years and I always seemed to shoot them well. I shoot left-handed and when I bought my Gen 3 19, the mag release rubbed my finger a lot. I smoothed the edges of the release and fixed the issue.

I thought I might need to reverse the mag release on this 21 but I find it doesn't rub against my fingers anywhere. I guess the redesign did make a difference. When reversed, I guess I would have to use only Gen 4 magazines with the catch notch on both sides. Not doing that, would allow using any model 21 mags, right?
