    $350 is a good price for a glock if it is in good condition.

    Most people try to get more than that for Gen II G17's, yeah man, buy it. If there is no visible damage, there is nothing on it that cannot be replaced for dirt cheap. You don't need to 'register' handguns in Oregun as far as I know. If you are a TX resident, you can buy it without ANY paperwork. BOS are optional and for your own or the sellers records (say in case you use it in a crime and leave it behind). Just because you move to OR after you buy it, you don't need any paperwork. Just bring the gun with you and you are set.

    Price of $350 is insanely good, buy it. What worries me is the section I have highlighted. If the gun is owned in Texas and you live in Oregon it MUST be transferred through a local FFL meaning he needs to ship it to one in Oregon. Not complying with this is illegal and will prevent you from legally ever owning a gun again.

    ETA: your post appeared as I was typing. Do you currently live in Texas?If so, no registration is required in Oregon. You just move your guns like the rest of your stuff. If however you do live in Oregon and your buddy lives in texas make sure to transfer it through an FFL (Federal Firearms Licensee a.k.a. gun dealer)

    Well then you are good to go I believe (not a lawyer) Oregon doesn't have any registration laws. Seriously though, $350 for a gen 4 Glock 17 is a steal!

    You're fine then. It's just your property that you are bringing here. I paid $400 for a new condition, supposedly rebuilt (looked all new, suspect it was and was just a never fired police trade in) G22 a few years back and it was an excellent price

    $400 would be a very good price for a gen 4 g17 with night sights so for $350 I'd be all over that.

    Looks like it's been answered, but I'll add my $.02:

    -The price is awesome, I don't like Glocks and I'd even buy it at that price.
    -Buy the gun while you're living in TX so it can be a face-to-face sale.
    -Move the Gun with all of your stuff to OR (in a locked case, just for safety).
    -No registration or paperwork will be needed since you will already own the gun and be moving into OR.

    If the Gen 4 has a ambi mag release and the 1913 rail I would skip it. Lots of reports of the ambi mag release being very hard to push with a full mag, and finding a holster for the 1913 rail is challenging if you want to carry it. Your options will be limited. I have a gen 4 Glock 17 but with standard mag release and regular glock rail.

    ambi mag release means there will be a mag release button on each side of the grip in which you can depress the lever and release the mag. It is not interchangable at least i have not heard of people doing it. The 1913 rail is larger and looks like a full size rail. The standard rail fits the gun better, is smooth but has one cut out for your light. I would think because of the price it is the gen 4 with the ambi mag release and 1913 rail. Save your money and get the standard you will be much happier.
