"New" Gen 2, G17

I'm a fan of and own several compact and subcompact Glocks (23, 26, 30), but have been toying with the idea a getting a full sized 9 for (another) range gun. I wanted something with a longer barrel and a little more weight than the 26.

I really like the new 17s and 34s, but was trying to stay in budget when I found the gen 2 g17 at my LGS. The price wasn't great ($400) but the gun appeared to be in decent condition, so I bit the bullet. I checked with Glock and it was imported in Dec '94. It is now cleaned up, a new recoil spring is ordered, and I'm looking forward to the first range trip next week to see how it runs.

I don't have a Gen2 G17 but I have a Gen2 G22. I really like the Gen2 frame. However, I have a Gen1 G17. IMO that is it for me. Only thing I don't like is the slide won't lock back due to the shallow notch. I know this is common but I just can't bring myself to file it deeper so it locks open.
