    A follow up to my favorite 17. I had brought a few S&W MP9's to sell at the show and traded one for the 26. (It is a sweet gun) Also sold the other MP9 so with cash in hand I found this early (first gen??) G17 . It is nice hardly looks fired at all and has the box and 2 mags! SN MPxxx

    I don't know if I'll shoot the 17, but the 26, heck yes and carry it.

    :cool:

    Congrats on the find. From the looks of the G17, I think it's 2nd Gen (Checkered texture on the front and rear of the pistol grip). Unless I'm mistaken, I believe the 1st gens had the same texture all the way around the pistol grip. Looks like you scored pretty good. :thumbsup:

    I just checked in the "Valuable Info" thread at the "Glock serial number project" posts.... your MPxxx serial number is, in fact, a 2nd gen probably manufactured around 1990.

    Thanks! I think my 19 is going to be getting jealous.. I like shooting the 17's more and the 26 is a fantastic carry size.

    :)
