    Absolutely fantastic!!!

    It's just fantastic when a new one of these appears with pictures in the forum. Thank you so much for sharing and congratulations on owning such a magnificent and important gun.

    Thank you for following through.
    I know several of us would love to know the back story on how you acquired it.

    Something like (3) just this year have come up for viewing. That has to be significant. Is there more?
    If you are into Glock collecting that is Gen 1 19 is the crown jewel of doing so.
    It’s massive having one in your possession.

    I had to fix your images.

    I believe KS ABC requested a smaller gun for their detectives and Glock in order to have a chance at winning the contract modified the 17 mold to accommodate for the 19. I’m sure others could add more info/clarify.




    Unless you were asking about his :animlol:

    As long as cutting down of the frame is not mentioned versus just shortening of the mold for the grip.:exercise:

    At first glance it does look cut (from a side view) but based on the pictures posted in other threads (looking up at the grip) it definitely looks molded. Would be curious to see 2 side by side to see if the “cuts” look equal on all of them, ie if they used the same mold for all or if there was any variation.

    Senseless to hand cut when all they would need to do is machine a block to shorten the length. There is no dispute over how the front was done.

    To my knowledge, only one that was previously "unknown" to the collector community has come up this year. That was the fine gent who purchased his years back as an inexpensive used gun for protection. The thread on his was put up a few months ago.

    Thank you Ron for your clarification.
    I see KS ABC 11 in your thread. So whoever owned that one recently sold it.

    Since fishboy has not offered where he acquired his or what number it is I assumed it was one not known on your list.

    At any rate 3 still have changed hands this year unless fishboy had 11 and sold it recently.

    I’ve had this for over 5 years. (probably closer to 10). I searched for one a lot longer than that. I was about to give up. So many times I was offered 1st gen guns that were actually 2nd gen.

    Fascinating, and a nice find. I have little interest in spending my own money for collecting rare Glocks, but am always keen to see examples of important handguns and admire other people's collections.

    Absolutely, happy to help as I can.

    As noted in my thread, all attributions are made with either the explicit permission of the owner or taken from clearly posted, open source information.

    I of course could not and would not disclose any information that the owner of the firearm or the former owner wished to keep private - even if I knew it - as I'm sure everyone would expect and understand.

    It is remarkable how few of these firearms are known to the collecting community despite how many people are looking for them. I think it's fantastic when one pops up out of the blue as happened with our friend on the forum who lucked out in buying his as an inexpensive, used defensive piece years ago.

    I'm still waiting for some lucky dog to post about finding one at a gun show for $400. It's gotta happen some day...

    Thanks for the clarification 17L1.
    So actually 2 have changed hands this year. Fishboy and the one I bought. With the one I bought being the newest unknown example.

    I get it that members want to be low key on their examples.

    It’s great that you are maintaining a running list GH. Thanks.
