    What are the differences between the gen 2 and gen 3 G17s? I know the gen 3s have the front rail and the different grips, but are there any other differences that make one better than the other?

    Not a Gen2 vs Gen3 issue, but 9mm pistols used ot only have one retaining pin. They changed that DURING the 2nd Gen, so early 9mm pistols that only have the one pin shouldn't be converted to shoot higher power ammo like .40 or .357 sig.
