    I was in a pawn shop and saw a Gen 1 Glock 17 with the eagle stamp and the letters "npv" stamped on the frame and barrel. Now, from what I understand, this means it was made in Austria. They were asking 400 for it, but the price is marked out and now they are asking 375. The guy says they've had it for 3 months with little interest. Is it worth spending the money? I mean, help me convince my wife. Lol

    I will skip my usual sarcasm and say BUY IT. Just do it. Figure out the explanation to your wife later, I understand the need to agree on purchases. BUT this is a Gen1. Good luck coming across another if you pass this one up.

    The letters STD are stamped in it. Just gotta figure out which year this is.

    I think they call them STIs now? Lol Maybe I should clean it thoroughly when I get it home, just in case.

    just remember not to lube it too much, that will give the barrel the drips.

    Turns out it's a Gen 2. :(

    They had it listed as a Gen 1.... Kinda sucks, but oh well.

    I'm no Glock expert so I didn't pay attention to the grip before buying. Silly me. Now I guess I'm on the hunt for a Gen 1. :D

    Here are the pics of my recent purchase. I've done a light cleaning on it and noticed that the guide rod has a significant bow in it. I still haven't fired it so I'm not sure how it fires. All the innards seem to be original.
