I just picked up a G17L with only 6rnds fired through it, w/ Tupperware, mags, book, brush, and everything for $400. (yeah, I stole it for that price, don't think the guy knew what he had.) It's a July 1988 model -DB*** It's got the ported barrel and standard sights. I've read that the barrel is not reliable for thousands of rounds because of weakness in the porting or something. I don't want Glock to perform any upgrades, because I want to keep it all original, but I want it to be just as reliable for thousands of rounds like my newer Glocks, but I'm just not that familiar with 1st gens. Anybody have any advice?
