Well, I took my Gen 4 G17 out today for it's first test/range session. I went through 100 rounds of 115gr 9mm Winchester "White Box'. Although GT is a great source of info, I was a little nervous at first because of all the issues I have read about.
I'm happy to report that the G17 performed flawlessly! It felt great in the hand, recoil was minimal and there were no issues whatsoever. I've fired a couple of Glock's in the past (this is my first purchase) but this just felt different. It felt....right. I was very impressed with the new recoil spring and the overall performance. I am very pleased with this purchase and encourage everyone to go out and get a Gen 4! (Before they ban what's left)
