    I recently came across a G17 with Desert Storm engraved on the slide in large letters. It's the only one I've seen, and I'm looking for some info about this special run's history (if it was a special run).

    Please share any info you may have about this gun. I'm wondering how many were produced, when, for whom. If they're as scarce as I suspect, one in very good condition might be worth...how much...ballpark?

    Go over to the Sub-forum for these. They are real, and limited, but don't seem to be desirable to the point of being worth more than $500-600 last I saw. In these turbulent times, maybe more.

    Thanks. I don't own this one yet, but the info might help me make an offer. Actually, I think the asking is $600.

    Any idea when they were made?

    I'm not big on special editions or commemoratives, but some people love that sort of thing.

    That has been sold. It lasted 2 days. Went to a Desert Storm Vet who had been looking for one for awhile.
