"New" Gen 2, G17

Discussion in 'The Founders club' started by FLSlim, Jun 15, 2012.

  1. I'm a fan of and own several compact and subcompact Glocks (23, 26, 30), but have been toying with the idea a getting a full sized 9 for (another) range gun. I wanted something with a longer barrel and a little more weight than the 26.

    I really like the new 17s and 34s, but was trying to stay in budget when I found the gen 2 g17 at my LGS. The price wasn't great ($400) but the gun appeared to be in decent condition, so I bit the bullet. I checked with Glock and it was imported in Dec '94. It is now cleaned up, a new recoil spring is ordered, and I'm looking forward to the first range trip next week to see how it runs.

    Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
  2. I think $400 is a reasonable price for a use G17 in good condition. A new Gen 3 17 would cost you $100 more. Please let us know how it runs.

  3. Thanks FLAiredale, I'll post next week after some range time.

    Pics, or it didn't happen!:supergrin:

    Congrats! I still carry a Gen 2 on duty. A great gun and if yours is in good shape you got it for a great price!

  5. Yep, gotta get the camera out. I need to document the pistol for my records, anyhow. I took it to the range last week and left totally bummed. Everything was fine for the first mag, then the FS broke off :crying:. The gun had NS which were dim, so had probably been on for some time, but still..... I stuck another FS on and will make another trip this week to see how she runs--wish me luck and I'll get the pix going!

    Here's my w2nd Gen 17 with my EDC 26 & LCP>


  8. Nice trio, Hugo. I also have a gen 3, G26 which is a great little carry gun and it accuracy continues to surprise me, especially with 147 gr. rounds. My only other Glock is a 30, which is a super gun in its own right.
  9. Nothing beats a Gen2.Keep us informed on your progress. I'd get a new set of Trijicons for that beauty. tom.:cool:

    Did you make the deal? And of course pics of the family please!!!

  14. Will do, plan on picking it up next week.
  15. Good deal G36. Enjoy and post a follow-up.
  16. I picked up the 17 last Wednesday, went to the range today,great shooter, could be my new IDPA gun. Good shape for a 16 year old gun (test fire 4/1/96) Holster wear, yes, but I was buying a shooter not a safe queen. Having probs. posting pics.

    Awesome! Was the price the same?

  18. The price was better, $328.60 OTD. (MI sales tax is .06%) Some how I have to my file before adding more pics.
  19. I bought a 2nd gen 17 9mm from a Denver Sgt. in 1988. I've owned it since, and am allowed to have the 17 shot mags it came with! Just recently a Glock authorized armorer replaced alot of parts that were recalled. I had no problem with the weapon, but hey free replacement sure!

    I love this weapon! Got a 6" barrel for it, for distance accuracy, shot in an Allstate Pistol Competition here in So. Cal, first time I got 3rd out of about 35 shooters!

    In 88 i paid $500, so for $400 I would buy again! Contact Glock and see if they have any upgrades for your weapon.
