So to fund the silencer for my new Ruger 22/45 that I purchased recently, I had to sell my Kimber Eclipse Pro II. Tried selling it online and after a few days, took a little negotiation and lots of back-and-forth with multiple prospects, I landed on a trader who would give me part cash and a gun with accessories.
The gun he wanted to trade was a Glock 29 in 10mm, DeSantis OWB holster, with 4 mags, Pearce magazine extensions and 100+ rounds of ammo. I thought, since I’ve never had a chance to own the caliber of the gods (10mm), I decided to take the offer.
Here’s the gun:
You can imagine a small gun like that shooting full powered 10mm rounds isn’t going to be a very good feeling. That said, it would make an awesome defensive pistol. I never got to shoot it though, I cleaned the gun and quickly listed it back up on our local gun forums. Within a few hours, it was sold.
The buyer offered to trade for a LNIB (Like-New-In-Box) Glock 17 Gen 4 with a Lone Wolf threaded barrel. Since it’s sort of a fair trade, and I would rather have a newer Glock 17 with a threaded barrel instead of a gun that I might not shoot, I accepted.
Here it is all detail stripped and ready for cleaning :
After cleaning and lube :
Now do I keep this or sell it? hrmmm maybe I could use a suppressed 9mm platform.
