I just picked up a G17L with only 6rnds fired through it, w/ Tupperware, mags, book, brush, and everything for $400. (yeah, I stole it for that price, don't think the guy knew what he had.) It's a July 1988 model -DB*** It's got the ported barrel and standard sights. I've read that the barrel is not reliable for thousands of rounds because of weakness in the porting or something. I don't want Glock to perform any upgrades, because I want to keep it all original, but I want it to be just as reliable for thousands of rounds like my newer Glocks, but I'm just not that familiar with 1st gens. Anybody have any advice? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
