    I've wanted one of these guys for a good long time, but just hadn't picked one up yet... That all changed a few days ago when I found a deal that I couldn't pass up. I've shot the gen 1 a good bit and it seems they really got these gen 2s right. I've already added a tacticool products bolt tube cover, afg2, & pachmayr grip.

    I own two Glock .40s, so I have ammo and mags a plenty (and then some). Can't wait to hit the range tomorrow!!

    Fits perfectly in a 17" laptop bag. Love it.

    That gun is somewhere on my list. What did it cost if you don't mind sharing?

    Agreed. I have a Korean 31 rounder for the .40, but you're lucky to get through 3 rounds without a failure. It's junk.

    Great price. I would have snatched that up as well.

    I've seen Gen 2 9mms for $430 locally. It is certainly tempting. I love PCCs and especially Glock compatible ones.

    I have the Gen 2 Glock 17 9mm version.

    Absolutely love it. It is ridiculously fun to shoot at steel targets from under 30 yards.

    Not sure if I have ever missed.

    Everyone who shoots it hands it back the same way, with a smile on their face and an empty mag.

    THESE GUNS ARE BAD.
    They are VERY EXPENSIVE
    Really, BIG smile, 33 rounds of 9 mm in about 30 seconds
    Seriously, these things are such fun to shoot, but bring plenty of ammo...they go through it very fast.

    Even if they didn't fold, these would be cool rifles!

    I have the Gen 1 in 9mm for G17 mags, because the version for G15 mags had too small of a grip (grips run shorter on sub2k's than on the corresponding Glocks).

    I wonder if the gen2 grips improved on this?

    Good price, nobody will do much better than $425 OTD.

    Agreed. The fact that they fold is just icing on the cake.

    I have the G19/G23 grip on mine and it's just as short as the Gen 1 I had experience with. Unfortunately, this is one area the gen 2 didn't improve on... I definitely would've preferred the G17/G22 grip, but I settled with this guy for the deal.

    I love my G2 in 9mm. I added the Midwest Industries t1/t2 pivoting optic mount and a Primary Arms Red Dot, and I could not be happier. I do feel that the factory sights are a bit low. In order to get a good sight picture, the cheek weld was unbearable, at least with my huge head. I have read many warnings against the use of aluminum and steel cased ammo, but no problems here. I have taken several jack rabbits with it. Mmm! jack rabbit stew.
