    the guy at the gunshop told me GSSF only says 2 mags with a GSSF gun,not 3 like a law enforcement gun.although gen 4's are supposed to come with 3.the 2 mags with it have a front mag release cut and one on the left side 2,i suppose for the reversible mag release.

    That's all the GSSF program promises, although it sounds like some dealers might give you the 3rd (mine doesn't but does sell it to you for $20).

    I shot my 17 Gen 4 today, I like my RTF 17's better. What everyone is describing with the recoil being reduced, I also found to be true. I am not a fan of the grip as much as I am the RTF2's.

    If I could only have one or the other the Gen4 would go.

    HI,
    I got several and I have found the gun softer and faster then the regular 17.
    I found if I get a shooter to shoot 4-5 rds thru the regular 17 then, the Gen 4, every one notices it's slide action is faster and softer. You will also notice that the brass does not go as far (almost half the distance) as the old G17.

    I have carp-rail tunnel so I feel the recoil more, I plan on selling my old g17's and as soon as the G19's come in I will sell the old G19's. I shoot only G19's in matches(faster and flatter shooting then the 17 for me) but I am working on the Gen 17 to use it next month.
    You can not limp wrist it though, it will jam easier. The smaller grip is also a big selling point for me.

    Just My Thoughts On It.

    i put about 85 rounds of 115 WWB thru mine saturday.it did have a different feel to the recoil.the spring is heavier,comparing to my regular 17.i do like it,the smaller grip and the different mag release.i got a set of sevigny competion sights comin and hopefully i'll shoot it in the local IDPA match saturday.
