    I'm excited about my new purchase. The gun store I go to had Glock17 and 19 (police trades) for $359.00. I went and looked at four of them and narrowed it down to two. Both had good triggers. ONe was a First Generation 17, the other one, a Second Generation. I took them apart and looked at them with the gun salesman, (who I've dealt with before and trust). I just loved the First Generation G17. I like the smoothe grip. The barrel was somewhat worn in the SEcond generation one, although not badly. The first generation gun was great. The trigger is great and the man said it was hardly shot. There hasn't been many round through it. I just love this smoothe grip and trigger. I guess this could have gone in General Glocking, but I do intend to use it Saturday at an Indoor match. Anyone else have a good first generation G17 and uses it in competition? HOnestly, I really like the smoothe grip on it, without the grooves and checkered pattern.

    i must be the only one that likes the new ones. i had a 1st gen 17L and sold it as soon as i got a new one. long as it works for you and you're happy with it is all that really matters.

    Many shooters prefer the Gen1 G17 frames. I do and enjoy shooting my factory ported Gen1 G17L.;)

    Congratulations on your new gun! :dancing:

    Butch's Unlimited gun, er, I mean his Stock gun, er, uh, his everything gun is a Gen-1 17. I'm sure he's got a properly sized pic of it somewhere.

    It's the first Glock I ever bought....new, in the spring of 1986, and as WIG so accurately noted, it's my 'everything gun', the one I've fired more than any other, and have had great success with it. I expect you'll love yours too! Congrats!

    The only thing 'not Glock' about it is the Ameriglo white dot front sight and two slices of bicycle inner tube on the grip.

    glockess56, I recently got one NIB, papers and all. I love the feel of it, or perhaps it is the nostalgia. I want to shoot it but I can't get up the nerve to do so yet.

    Glockess56,
    I have a First Generation G17 that I have been shooting for the past 20 years. It has over 400,000 rounds through it and it's the gun that I have shot in over 100 competitions including all of the GSSF matches that I have been shooting since 1998. It had so much holster and "use" wear that I recently had it coated by R&J Performance Coatings in Lubbock, TX. www.randjperformancecoatings.com

    Now, it looks like a new gun and still shoots like one, too.

    "You made a great choice"

    I'm with ede on this one. I had a 1st gen. G22. Once the 3rd gen. guns came out I sold the G22 and have since purchased two G22's a G23 and G35. My next purchase is a G17, which I have coming using the GSSF promotion.
