    Getting a great deal on a Gen 4 G17 that is to good to pass up. I have stayed away from the gen 4's do to the relibality concerns some have had. I own many gen 3's all subcompact. What should i be aware of in buying the gen 4 17?

    thanks

    I bought a Gen 4 17, PHM serial, and love it.

    Shoots fantastic. I did have one stove pipe a some brass at the face but received the new recoil spring from Glock and no issues since.

    I own a early G17 Gen4 that has never had a problem or a spring change. Just go for it
