I recently picked up this 1st Generation 17. I really like the older frame feel. This is going to be my new carry gun. It came with factory adj. sights...now if I can just get myself to replace them with a set of NS.

That's really cool. A gen III was my first pistol. Interesting to have the original. Piece of history.

Nice find on a classic. I myself have a 20 year old G17, although it's a early 2nd gen it is my favorite Glock.

Damn gun makes me feel old.......brings back good memories though.

Very cool, sir!

The G17 I'm carryin' right now (2nd Gen) was built in Feb of 1990. Still goin' strong, I trust it 100%.

Great pistol you've got there.

Very nice.

My mom bought me my first Glock 17 in 1987. I wasn't yet 21.

Wow, I was issued one just like that (except the adjustable sights) on duty back in 1987. I remember going thru the NRA instructors school in Allentown ,PA w/ it and getting pissed about the grip and my sweaty hands. I made it thru the class and started carrying a issue G19 in 1989. Wish I bought it when we traded our guns in. Oh well!

My G17 was made in 1986. Has an AW prefix serial number.

nice find. another one here with a 23 year old, with original tupperware and all. picked up for under 3 bills when purchased. it's just as reliable and dependable as any of my new ones.

I have a few Gen 1 G17's. I like the grip the best, although I also have Gen 2's and 3's. One of them came with an adjustable sight like yours, but I swapped it out right away. The adjustable sight seemed very fragile and I didn't trust it.

I took a class about a year ago, and I used my slightly beat up, Gen 1 G17 (the first one I bought). A shooter from out of state forgot his cleaning kit for his HK P7, so I let him use the one I had with me. 1800 rounds in three days with no cleaning or lube, and no malfunctions, not that I expected any.

Nice find.

Holy Crap, for $230 I would buy about 4 of them. My oldest is a 1987 G17, it is my IDPA gun and has a lot of rounds through it. Not as many as other people the most of any I own. I keep the night stand glock and carry glock mileage down, and goto the old gen 1 17 every time for playing. It also has had less then a thousand rounds of factory ammo, and most likely over 40,000 rounds of reloads.

Mine carries Novak bar/dot NS and the 3.5# stuff along with the newer extended slide stop. Skate board tape, actually the decal grip "sand" stuff makes it feel GREAT.

decal grip I have had that stuff on for at least 5 or 6 years, maybe more and it has never peeled or been changed.

Ive also got a 1st generation 17 that is my absolute favorite GLOCK. It was made in May of 1988. I replaced the adjustable sites and replaced them with Ameriglo night sights. I would love to find another gen 1 but they are getting harder and harder to find.
