Die hard HK guy who just bought a 17L

And that's part of the double entendre of my username. 17L "mate" or "m8" just like the HK P7M8, the best all metal 9mm.

Well I figured it would be for the best for me to post this introduction. I always think it is kind of rude towards the administration to see a registered user with zero posts.

I wouldn't be here if I didn't just purchase a 17L, and I'm on the fence about keeping it. BNIB I got it for $640 out the door. I figured that was worth it to finally own a GLOCK. That and the 33rd magazines and the 6" barrel (to match 357sig velocity in the +P ammo) were the attractive selling points to me.

So I'll be lurking to determine what mods I want to do if I decide I want to keep it. Otherwise I'm up for trades or a sale on my 17L.

17L with 19 flush mag grip chop and trijicon RMR were the planned mods, btw.

NNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Don't ruin it. I would suspect that would make it really unbalanced with a long top end and a shortened bottom.

I think having "Foxhound" engraved on the slide would make it unsellable.

I'm a gardener by trade, and my glove size is a women's medium. I'm a man, btw. So the grip chop wouldn't unbalance it for me, because I'd shave off the finger grooves at the same time. The G19 is about as small of a grip as I am comfortable with. AND at the same time I would increase magazine availability. But right now it is only just a thought.

Thanks for all of the welcomes! I was hoping someone would call me Hans Gruber, hahaha
