    I found a G17 from what looks like the Clinton hicap mag ban era. It appears to have been left in the box and very few rounds through it. Everything that came with it new is in the box, the warranty card and manual envelope is still sealed. The finish is flawless. (FG/R) Finger Groove/ Rail? I was wondering if there is any value to this firearm.

    Thanks,

    Nice Gen-3 G-17 in great condition.
    Worth about $400-$450 in todays market depending on where you live.

    The mags are probably fine, but I would sell them and replace them personally. I dont use 15 year old Glock magazines, when I can sell them and buy new ones for an out of pocket cost of about $10.

    OTOH, my 2003 LE restricted mags work as good as they ever have.

    I have many L/E marked mags that are over 20 years old, and still work great.

    I'm a stickler for maintenance. I replace all my mag springs at 5 years old. In the case of Glock, its actually the same cost to replace the spring as it is to sell the magazines and buy new ones. Magazines are the most important item for reliability in a semi-auto pistol, and personally, it doesn't make sense to use 15 or 20 year old magazines when you can literally buy new ones for $17 and sell your old ones for $15. Spending $2 every 5 years to have new magazines, with new magazine springs, is the biggest no brainer of all time.
