I have a fair number of Glocks and have purchased, sold, and traded several in the past. For some reason I have never owned a G17 until yesterday. I went to a gun show and traded my G36 for a 2nd generation G17 in excellent condition. The gun came in original tupperware with two drop free 17 round magazines. I cleaned the gun and installed a set of Meps, 3 1/2# connector, THE extended mag release (and of course a plug)and went to the range today. This one is definitely a keeper, didn't know what I had been missing. I like the 2nd generation frame too. Just had to pass this on, thanks for listening. P.S. - It's nice to be able to get "normal" capacity mags in a trade without having to include your first born - huh?
