Glock 17 Gen 1

Got this G17 Gen1 last week, okay shape overall for its age I guess. Top of slide has finish wear or attempted refinishing around front sight. Came with one magazine.
Guy I bought it from said gen1 mags command a premium price. Is this true?

Very nice score. As for the mags, I would not pay big bucks for the Gen 1 mags.

The Gen-1 mags may bring a little more to someone else who has a Gen-1 and wants to add it to their collection. There are some states where only "pre-ban" magazines are allowed and they may pay extra. Check the laws before you ship to any of those states. It may be legal to possess, but it could be illegal to ship to those states. Each one is different.

That one looks nice. I thought the first generation G19 was the Glock Grail.

But the G17 was the first. I'm sure all gen 1's are all collectable.

Nice find!

The 'wear' around the front sight could be the result of having had a different front sight on it....a picture of it might tell.

What's the serial number prefix? And the date code from the barrel? (the three small letters to the right of the serial number)

I also have a G17 Gen2 from May 1989. Sadly both are shooters not collector pieces.

The gen 1 will cost more but they are not drop free, I keep my gen1 mags in the box and use the later model mags.

gen1 pistols only had 2 letters and the front sight is a 1 time use sight, they were melted in without a screw like the newer ones.

don't listen to the above post, gen 1's are more valuable and the last gen 1 Glock 19 sold for $50k, unfired and like new so if they are "just Glocks, nothing special" then I want all I can find.
