Default G42 Value

Looking for gun value should I part with this 42.....

Test shells were fired 5/22/16
It has Trijicon Trinium HD sights (orange),
Steel guide rod w/10% decrease from Galloway Precision,
Ghost Edge 3.5# connector,
Frame plug,
Both magazines contain MagGuts spring & follower( 7 + 1 )and Pearce pinky extensions.

It runs 100% without issues.
The negative IMO is the slide is Black Cerakote and I'm not a fan of Cerakote.

New OEM retail is $380 + S&H. If you really wanted to sell it an individual may offer $250-$300?

Your right. At the time I got it I way overpaid ($480.) yeah, thanks Bass Pro. And put another $300. In parts on it. Considering I have a G42 without issues I should be thankful. I been considering carrying the G19 but it's not as easy to conceal.

Lot of money to dump into a 42 that does not need better sights, or "different" trigger...since it is a SD pistol.

Not trying to start a big debate, but all Glock's need better sights. Unless it's a special edition or comes with Glock's night sights. IMHO. I personally broke the plastic sights on 3 different Glock's.

Agreed, I can't imagine anyone that honestly likes the factory sights. Two guns I recently worked on had the rear sight off to one side and actually overhanging the edge of the slide. I asked the owners "how do you shoot this".
As far as changing the connector- this had a huge improvement, much more so then the bigger guns. This came with a 6# trigger. A 6# trigger on a tiny light gun has you pull off target. Now at just under 4# the groups are 100x better.
I am not into bling on my firearms, I'm into what makes them function better and believe all the changes I make are improvements.
So I don't see why someone wouldn't want a self defense firearm to be more accurate and have sights that are more easy to pick up, more so in low light.
Sorry if this kicks off a debate.

Now that the market price has come down on this gun, it might be hard to get your investment out of it. Are you looking to invest the money into something else, or just need the cash. Either way, someone looking for a concealable 380 is often going to want to come in at an entry level price. Good luck.

I started to put it back to factory to put on consignment and couldn't do it. Only a Glock person could appreciate the changes made(all good IMO). All the parts installed were well thought out and it shoots and cycles 100%. To part with it for under $300. would hurt as much as stripping it of what makes it good. I imagine a hood rat choosing it over a Hi-Point because he had a good week dealing, na for now it stays, my other project will have to wait a month or two.
