    That is about as amateur as it gets. Any reputable pro would have removed the sights and would not have painted the frame’s internal moving parts and rails.

    That was done by someone with five minutes of free time and a can of spray paint.

    GLOCK never sold colored frames until the OD color first around 2004 maybe a couple years sooner. Then came the FDE then Grey a few years later.

    What does Glock charge for that service?

    To the OP, as-is it's the perfect truck gun. Or it can be a great project to restore with before and after pics.

    Definitely a rattle can job. Cocaine is a hell of a drug.

    Disassemble and drop all painted parts in a tub of your favorite solvent. Acetone, Xylol, MEK, etc. and watch it all come off. Use someone else's toothbrush to scrub out the corners.

    Decent deal and well worth it. Particularly if they do springs as well.

    Fill out the Glock on line warranty work form, and mail in your slide. It takes about two weeks.
    I have this this one to send in: (pictured above)

    An old US Marshals Service G-23, I can send it in and get GLOCK night sights added for $67 more too.
    The last slide I sent in stripped and it came back with all new slide parts, but I hear they (Glock) don’t do that anymore either.

    BUNNZAI, I wouldn’t mesS with it or try and strip the color off, get some ammo and mags and go for it.
    P.S.
    Do you have a pic of your bbl from the top, it will show us approx wear on your pistol.
    I like it!

    Funny...my truck is already that color!

    Still not convinced that this is a homemade spray can job. Seeing it in person and seeing that the color is in the magwell and was hoping the underside of the slide would show just how a great job, at one time, this was. The sites are painted but the dots don't show overspray. The internals were removed, whatever process it was colored. The slide was stripped to the metal before painting. I haven't seen anything that has been ceracoated or how it is applied, but that seems the logical answer. The cocaine answer made me laugh. Here's pictures of the barrel.

    Thanks, and it matches your truck?!?
    Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
    All of mine match my wife’s black 2019 Honda CRV.

    The number on the inside of the magwell MAY be a police case number with an initial to the right of it. Since you said it was an involuntary surrender, that may be what it is. If you were really curious about it, and you know the department where it came from, you could do an FOIA request for the report on that case and see what was up. May be mundane like a gangbanger arrested in possession or found property. I doubt if it was a murder weapon as usually anything involved in a murder is supposed to be retained forever.

    Looks like it comes with some free rust.

    I do believe you are correct as being a case number. It's pretty rare to have something come through with the agency still attached to the firearm. One item had info of seized on the CA/Mexico border dated 1999. It was a Calico M950 with a 100 magazine. I picked up G19 gen2, gen3 and gen4 for all under $400 each. And now this G17. Fun to watch the auctions.
