    hey gang, I found a Gen 2 17 that is in perfect condition. No marks or wear anywhere on it. It's only the gun and 1 mag, no Tupperware box. I already have the 19 and 22 in Gen 2. Would it be logical to buy it at $380 out the door? I am in between decisions about getting it. Thanks for all your inputs,

    Grab it. Out the door price of $380 is excellent. In my area, $450-500 bucks.

    I would buy <$400 Gen 2 9mm's all day long. I have a 1991 and a 1994 G19's, the best ever made.

    Another +1 to buy. Saw this funny in F&S this week:

    Q: I just bought a Model 71 Beretta .22 that is identical to one I own. Have I crossed some sort of line? ?—Joe Kristoff, New Hope, Va.

    A: Not unless you run out of money. A friend of mine owned something like 15 pre-1964 Winchester Model 70s in .220 Swift and has lived a productive life anyway. Besides, thinking up justifications prevents the brain from drying

    IMG_1277.JPG Ok, I did go ahead and buy it before someone else found it. I now have 3 gen 2s in 17, 19 , 22. All of them fall between 1992-1994 and in great condition. Will be taking them to the range Saturday to give them a work out. One question though, the 22 has 3 pins. It was produced in 1992. Is that the way 40 cal's came? And also has 40 S&W on slide. Thanks for all your replies and opinions.

    The original Glock 22's only had two pins. It wasn't long after they came out that they started having frame breakages and did a recall. Later 22's had three pins and a redesigned locking block to handle the heavier recoil.

    no, the very first .40's were two-pin. But, it was found because of their pressures, they redesigned the frame to take 3-pins. It was not because of the .45's or 10's, but the .40's.

    I wonder if there are any two pin G22s still out there? I assume Glock would still take care of the recall? Though it may have more collector value as-is.

    Well the 10mm G20 came out a year after the G22 so I assume it hard three pins from the start?
