    I'm sorry if this was discussed before. First GSSF match, do I purchase the 17c replace with a solid barrel and shoot all matches that 17 can shoot. When would I use the comp barrel. What division?:stooges:

    If you get a "stock" barrel, it needs to be a Glock barrel or the only catigory you can shoot in is Unlimited/Master. However, a factory Glock barrel will allow you to shoot in AmCiv or AmGardian, Master Stock. With the ported barrel you can shoot Competition and Unlimited/Master and both of these catigories can also be shot with the stock barrel.

    Dan is right on.

    Thought I would add that you will pay at least $100 for a Glock replacement barrel and that is if you find someone that will sell it for their cost.

    Second point is that a ported barrel on Stock Glock 9mm Barrel is not really worth the effort so I would go with a regular 17 over a 17C unless you just have an abundace of dispoasable income. The pressures required to make the ports work effectively are a no-no for a Glock 9mm barrel.

    i used to own a 17c...and i'd agree that the difference between a 17 and a 17c is pretty minor.

    I currently own driver8m3's old G17C and for me it was a good choice.

    I already had a stock 17 that was my unlimited gun with a replacement Jarvis barrel in it, so I had an extra G17 barrel to use in the 17C. I didn't really care for the G34 I had so driver and I traded and I'm happy with the trade.

    I personally like the 17C better then my regular 17 and the G34. The recoil is a little bit softer, but 9mm doesn't recoil much to begin with, so the difference is very subtle.

    My 17C is my main GSSF gun, even though I haven't been to a match in over a year. :freak:
