    I've got a 2nd Gen G17, and I've heard rumors of Glock dealers being able to send 1st and 2nd gen frames in to Glock and have them replaced with 3rd gen frames.
    I'm wondering if this is true, and if so, how much it costs.
    Thanks.

    I've paid Glock to do it in the past... Not worth it it in retrospect..:crying:

    You will net more (>$150 + shipping) by buying a new or used Glock, and selling yours.

    Unless, there is a defect in your current frame, in which they will replace it for free.

    Gen 2 was an improvement over 1 but its still better than 3 and much better than 4 IMO.

    If it's that much it's out of the question (I was thinking $50-75), but the 3rd gen G17 fits my hands better, and can mount a light, which, since it's my bedside gun, would be nice.
    I'll probably pick one up eventually, but this'll do for now.
    Thanks.

    The 3gen fits my hand better... personal preference... but slide on grip condom works about as well.

    Weapon mounted lights are cool looking, but unless you train with one, they can be a liability (or disability). Take an advanced low light weapons course before going this route.

    Laser makes more sense for short range HD.

    Unless there is something wrong with it I would not do it. Not really enough difference between them to warrant spending the money.

    I don't see a laser working very well for IDing a target, but that might just be me? :dunno:
