Hey all! Glad to be a part of the forum! I've been a fan of Gaston's invention since 1994...can't believe it took me so long to find this place! Thought I would say hello by posting a pic of my 1st gen. G17. I purchased it from the original owner in 2003. He stated that he purchased it new in January of 1986 and put about 500 rounds through it then put away for storage. Never rebuilt or touched while he owned it...and I believe him. Serial is AF4XXUS which I think places it in the first 1,000 imported. The crown jewel of my Glock collection.
