    Unfortunately, I think they will. I think we might be in the halcyon days of cheap, plentiful guns....

    Time will tell.

    Beautiful pistol, btw!

    "I wonder if our grandchildren will be as excited about inheriting a suitcase full of Glocks."

    My sons have already laid claim to which of my guns each wants ("All of them -- split down the middle"). I've taught their kids to shoot, and I know they each covet a share too.

    And yeah, there's a Glock in there too.

    Thank you everyone for the kind words. Looking forward to this sitting in the safe and passing it down at some point.

    Wonderful piece.

    Give it a careful, gentle cleaning. Maybe replace the recoil spring.

    And then shoot it!

    Some of my most precious possessions have little value other than the family/memento/heirloom factors.

    A wonderful tribute.

    Not many left that haven't been butchered. If I were going to shoot this regularly I would remove the running gear and grips and store them, replace them with identical "shooters" and a later OEM factory throated barrel.

    Load it up with standard pressure hardball or 200 gr hard cast SWC and fire up the wayback machine.

    Steve, That looks great! Super cool that it was your Grandfathers. I am big into things like that handed down through the family. Family heritage is important.
