Our Assessment: This pistol is a Glock Model 26 Generation 3 sub-compact pistol chambered in 9mm Parabellum. The pistol has a synthetic frame with a textured finish and matte black metal finish with exquisite engraving and gold border inlay. The Glock engraved pistols were produced in a very limited quantity of about 75 guns and they all had the “ELP” prefix. What makes this rarer yet is that the 75 guns were various models and had various engravings, so seeing one of these again is highly unlikely. This is undoubtedly some of the finest work you will ever see on a Glock and this isn’t your average “plastic fantastic”. The pistol is in about Excellent condition with about 98% of its finish remaining. The bore is bright with polygonal rifling and no erosion. The Glock action is very unique with a safety lever in the trigger that is depressed as you squeeze the trigger. In that regard, it is very much like a revolver, in that you can pick it up, point it and shoot – no safety to think about. As long as the slide is closed with a round in the chamber, it is going to fire, which is why Glock pistols such as this one have been adopted by so many police departments. This pistol comes with two 10 round factory magazines, its original factory case and some accessories. The small size this pistol makes it perfect for concealed carry and can also be used for home defense. Please see our photos and good luck!
