I read a few threads indicating that Glock recently released a new batch of the 17L.
After calling the local Glock dealer they were unaware and therefore no plans to order.
I am hoping there is some official press release about it unless I happened to misinterpret the threads.

Why do you need an official press release to buy one?  I don't think Glock does press releases for pretty much anything.  There was a run of 17Ls a few months ago.  I saw them in stores and they were available everywhere online.  Now it looks like they're mostly sold out already, but you might still be able to find one.  Good luck!

My local shop got 2. One remains.

Pretty common knowledge that they were available.  I doubt you are going to find a "official" press release.

Seems like Buds had them in stock a few weeks ago.

They are no different than anything else. He needs to call his distributors and see if any thin is available. If they did ship a batch and he didn't know about it he might be too small to have been notified.

My experience is that most of the time I'm better going straight to GunBroker and just be done with it.

That's not really how it works.  

In cases like this where you want something in short supply, my best advice to you would be to either find a shop that has one in stock and purchase it from them, or buy it online somewhere and have it transferred locally.

There's a few more on GB.  You might want to jump on one before the supply dries up more and the asking prices climb.  Good luck!

Thanks for the links.
I checked the completed auction and figure with shipping and transfer fee its going to be about $700.
Granted I really want one but not sure I want to pay $200 more than expected to have one.
May just have to add this item to the list of firearms I want but may never get.

You were never going to be able to get a new one for $500.  When the last batch came out they were selling for $600-650 online and if your local gun store got one I'm sure they'd have charged $650+.

Its my understanding if its a blue label they are supposed to honor the GSSF price if you do have a coupon.

The last run that you see on the market were contract over runs. they were not released in the blue label program. If you see one for less than 6 bills jump on it. They will be around until a few of the larger inventories dry up. After that who knows until the next run will be produced. I can assure you the longslides are low priority items on the production schedules. Large government contracts always come first.

If you buy a 17L you will not be disappointed.

I don't do much glock but know there aren't many 17Ls that come through as blue labels

I had seen a bunch of 17L's pop up on gun broker at a reasonable price, decided to call my local shop that is also a blue label dealer. Told him I had seen some 17L's on gun broker and the pictures looked like the s/n had 7 digits meaning recent production, get me one. He called me back 10 minutes later and said all the 17L's are already allocated and he can't get any so if I wanted one I had to "go fish".
Went to bud's online, saw them in stock ordered it and immediately made a thread here so everyone that may want one would know. That was back in November.
It has a 7 digits s/n and reliably ejects btf so I know it is of recent manufacture lol.
The release before this in I think 2014 or so had included blue label 17L's. I don't know anything other than kieslers police supply had them on their clearance page until at least 7/2016. So I'm thinking that maybe it wasn't so much a hit with most normal blue label purchaser's.
As already said if you see one for 600-650 get it.
if you wanna wait out a blue label deal for one then it's probably gunna be a while, if they even do that again.

I stuck one on layaway last week for $625 locally. 7 digit S/N. They had two examples in stock and they are a relatively large shop.

Ooooohhh, now if I found one for that price, I would use the GSSF coupon for something else.

Doesn't the coupon say which guns you can use it for right on it? The 17L cost more than the normal guns and I think it cost more than the 34/35 too.

The 17L with adjustable rear sights is $507 per GSSF price sheet which is the same price for the 34, 35 and 41.

Went shooting today and it just so happens the guy sees my Glock and mentions he has a 17L he only shot twice and looking to sell.
Me : How much?
Him : $700

Supply and demand. He could probably get pretty close to that.

The 17L's are more rare than any other Glock 9mm (except gen 1 G19's). There are a few left on Gunbroker for $600++.

I bought one for $590. All in (after shipping + FFL transfer) was $648.

There are NO 17L's in Blue Label. They were NOT released in Blue Label. There were only a few. Rocky Top Armory in Seymour, Tennessee has one left.

There are two others I know of on Gunbroker and their bidding starts $600+.

They are NOT plentiful. They are harder to get than 17C/19C's....

They do not come around often and command great resale if you sell it in good condition.

There was a guy walking around at the deland gun show a few weeks ago selling an older gen3 17L. It had the fry pan finish in like new condition with the box and 2 mags. He was asking $750. I would have bought that back before i got one of the latest release and been fine with it especially with the fry pan finish.
I guess i dont understand how $100 or even less in some cases make some people turn their nose at limited availability/production firearms that they are actively seeking out.

Many people don't do basic research on prices and have no idea what an item costs and tend to over pay which is why you see a number of ads (even on this board) of people selling items at a price higher than what a new one costs.
I can immediately get a brand new one for under $650 out the door.....if I really wanted one.
Why pay $700 for a used one???
Its not that important to have one especially at $200 more than it should cost me. Too many other options out there to worry about it.
Since the 17L at a blue label price doesn't exist I will pass and looks like I will be getting the 34 instead and save $200.  Problem solved.

I also own a G34. I like the 17L BETTER. Shoot both, then make up your mind.

I wish I could but its hard to find the 17L much less both at the same location to try them side by side.
It has been a very educational week between this thread and my surfing on a Glock specific board.
Based on the summary of information the general consensus seems to be more favorable toward the G34 over the 17L and for the price difference it seems like the 34 wins out for me.
Now if I happen to come across a 17L before I pull the trigger for the 34 who know what may happen.

The 17L has a longer barrel. The G34's are plentiful. The 17L is in the limited class because of it's barrel length. This is why Glock came out with G34.

Own both if you can.
