    So im looking to sell my Glock G19 new never fired.
    To purchase a Glock G19 m.o.s.
    Or a comparable pistol .
    I know I can have my slide cut but I really like the idea of having it all ready from the factory.
    I looked at the Canik but it is only available with a 5 " barrel and I want a mid size for carry.
    So any suggestions as to pistols that will fit my needs and the best place to purchase based on price?
    I have a few gun shops I use but their prices seem to be above average when compared to others.

    Best place to purchase is a local gun store to support them so you have a place to go to get parts. With that said if they are into highway robbery and want to way over charge for a gun. The best place to shop is online and there is no one best place. You have to search out each gun to find the best price.

    We have several vendors that sponsor the site I would start there.

    Gunbroker.com can be a good source for info on pricing and I have never had a problem buying with them
    Budsgunshop.com usually is good on prices

    The Canik sf elite is shorter than a G19 the SF is longer like a G17

    I don't believe either of those come with the slide cut from the factory.
    The only one that I have seen that does is the tp9sxf... Which is much larger than the G19.. It didn't feel much bigger until I held it up against the G19.

    Yeah the sfx is a competition variant. You're gonna pay the most Glock tax if you want factory done I believe

    DP, thanks for posting this info. I hadn't looked at Canik lately.

    Up your way, I'd take a trip to Tomball Pawn. Their prices were very competitive when I bought my Glock. I don't know how their prices compare for non-Glock guns.

    I agree with this, and would also suggest checking out "Bud's gun shop", as well.

    If you know what you want, online is usually cheaper for new guns. I'd also realize that spancy Glocks will depreciate much more than your standard Glock.

    I can understand not wanting a "bubba'd" gun, but you'll lose a ton less if you buy used if you can find what you want.

    Just don't be upset when you don't get anything near what you paid for it.

    The only time "online" is a good deal is if you want something specific or old and no one carries it. Otherwise you end up dumping your "deal" with shipping and transfer fee.
