Excellent pistol! When I first saw one back in 1987, I thought that it was the ugliest thing Ive ever seen! After holding it and pointing it, I changed my mind... I bought mine in May 1988, and it is still going strong after 1000s of rounds down range... It is still highly accurate, and I am amazed at how reliable it remains to this day...

The Glock 17 is outstanding. Its accuracy is by far the best; however, Ive replaced the stock/plastics sights with AmeriGlo night sight. The trigger pull is smooth as silk all the way through, which definitely plays a role. The pistol is quick and easy to dis/assembly and clean. Nonetheless, I do have the occasional miss feed or jams but these are far and few between. Bottom-line, this is an excellent pistol.

This is the glock that made me a glock shooter....excellent ergonomics the flat top helps place the sights quickly on target..simple use point a shoot tatical concept, nightsights on all my glock from factory shine bright and constant when the lights go out...my glocks have been put in brutal brutal conditions from constant concealment to West Virgina atv riding..dust, mud, rain, everthing not a scratch, no faliures....what can i say....... GLOCK!

A year ago our department stopped letting us carry what we want and standerized to the Glock 17. I was pretty pissed at first. The gun is ugly and I thought How reliable can a plastic gun be. To prove my point I took one and shoot it every day during lunch without cleaning it afterwards trying to get it to malfunction. After a few months and over 3000 rounds I gave up. It was so dirty that crap would fall out of it when you picked it up. This gun will ALWAYS go bang if you pull the trigger. This experiment converted me to a Glock person. What gun do you know can fire over 3000 rounds without cleaning and still be as re;liable as the day it was taken out of the box?

Suprised to her that pacumbo. It should be able to shoot any thing you put it it even the cheap crap. At least thats been my experience. But mine is a generation 1 maybe thats changed with newer gens.

I traded a taurus compact, for a 17 tht was in almost new condition. The glock was missing the front site, besides tht I figure I got the better end of the deal. My compact had seen 5 boxes of ammo easy, was not a scratch on or in the 17. The comfort grip on the glock was worth the trade alone....Only problem was getting used to the balance of the 17, like all semi autos the weight is focused in the back when loaded, it is just a little more prominent with a glock.
