    A friend from work has a 1st 17 in great shape with 2 original mags no box. What would this gun be worth ? He told me he would like a gen 3 in ex shape. Would this be worth a trade

    If you like the feel of the Gen 1 as compared to the gen 3, then it is a good trade. The Gen 1, without the box, accessories etc, is not a really a collectble - but I would shoot the crap out of it and be happy to have it. Make the trade if you like it!

    to answer you question about value, without the original box, and it is truly in excellent condition, i could see somewhere around $400 give or take a little bit.

    Get it you can replace your 3rd gen gun much easier than you will find a 1st gen in good shape.
