Great topic. I don't have that early of one, but I know many GTers have NIB "AF" series G17s (first prefix imported into US, and several have used "AA" Austrian Army trade-ins. Maybe they'll come along and post some photos.

I have an AX ### that I acquired in 1986 at the Soldier of Fortune 3 Gun Shoot in Las Vegas. It's been shot very regular since then, for the past 23 years. This is one of the most reliable guns I have ever owned. Up until a year ago, I shot this Glock at least 20K rounds/year which means that it has had at least a half million rounds (500K) shot through it. I've won too many GSSF, IDPA and IPSC Production matches with it to count.

I know that there maybe older models in existence here in the states but the one that I own has been a great example of the gun's dependability.

Thanks,
Bobby Carver

Yesterday, in a private sale, I acquired AF 14x US. It has a GTF coded pencil barrel and came in it's original labeled box with accessories and still has black parts. It's not unfired but it's close. Am I correct in thinking this is one of the first thousand Glocks imported into the US?

Everyone was complaining and worried about the nonsense of "hog-nosed" Glocks not too long go.

Well, it looks like they have always had this feature.

I wish I would have been old enough then to buy a Glock or smart enough to have bought a few HK91/93/94s. I would have had a cool pistol and some guns exponentially higher valued.

Are you shooting it? If you are, it may be a good thing to do.

What state are you in? Better than sending it to Glock, take it to a GSSF match, the factory armorer there can do it for you, while you wait, free, and you won't have to spend $50+ dollars to send it to Georgia.

Then you can use the money to join GSSF and shoot the match while you're there! :)

If you're near Minnesota, I can do it for you too.

Just plinking with it Butch. Don't want to carry it due to the internals.
I'm in Texas, so I'd have to wait until December for San Antonio GSSF.
Would love to update it for carry, but keep the original parts for the value factor.

My brain just kicked in......it may be that it has already been upgraded.

The *original* trigger bar in that gun would not have been 'dark', it would have looked like this:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/0603/ButchG17/Glock%20pics/G17AP09x-triggerbar.jpg


Check the top edge of the trigger bar extension that pushes up on the firing pin safety, if it's not flat on top, the gun has probably been upgraded. Yes, original upgrade parts were dark colored.

Here's some comparison pics for you:

And these are both 'upgrade' trigger bars, one's shiny, and one's not.

Great stuff Butch!
I just tore it down to check, the firing pin, extractor, and trigger bar look like the ones in the "Old" type Picture. (See Attached Pic)
The trigger bar is just as dark as the firing pin and extractor, other than worn spots. I'll say the trigger bar is flat at top, but doesn't have the hook to it, as where the arrow is pointing on your pic.

Yup, those are old parts, but I'd say that the trigger bar extension has been altered......probably someone trying to make the trigger better. Too bad they didn't know enough to do the upgrade first. Could be that the trigger bar was replaced after they screwed up on the first attempt too.

How does the firing pin safety look?

If it's gone this long without a problem, it will likely do just fine for plinking till you can get to a GSSF match.....I just HATE the idea of having to pay for expensive overnight shipping just because UPS and FedEx can't keep their employees from stealing handguns otherwise.....we have to pay over twice as much as we should because of their lack of supervision.

Another option is that an FFL dealer can ship it much cheaper via the US Mail, but we can't.

Nice find!

Did you see post #43 on page 2 of this thread?

Lowish but not super low serial

Actually, it's pretty early, it was imported during the second month of importation (one of the third 1000 G17's), and it should have the small diameter 'pencil' barrel.....as well as the plastic 'bullet fingers' in the box.


And if no one has said it yet, welcome to GlockTalk!

Butch,
Broke down and shipped the G17 to Glock two days ago.
Won't be able to make San Antonio GSSF.
Would have cost more than the shipping charge in fuel alone.
Theft was my main concern.
According to shipping track, from Houston to signed for at Glock in Smyrna 16 hrs. later.

Butch,
After receiving my G17 back from Glock, I have noticed the slide not locking back after the last round on an empty Magazine.
I had shipped all the magazines with it, and they were replaced as well as all the internal parts.
I know the captured recoil spring is now a lot stronger than the original non captured spring. Do you think with time the spring may weeken enough for the slide to lock back again???
I notice that the notch on the slide for the stop to catch is minicule compared to my 2nd gen G19 and 2.5 gen G26.
Do you think it would be advisable to file the notch larger???
I know it would cut into the tenifer.

Wow.....I would have expected them to do that while it was there, but then, I don't suppose they run into that much anymore and the armorer that worked on the gun simply may not have realized it hadn't been done and/or didn't know that it should be done.

Give them a call, maybe you can just send the slide to them, which will be much cheaper.

Interesting. After my G17 KB'd, Glock replaced the frame, but not the slide. Mine wouldn't lock back after the last shot either, so I sent the slide in. Got it back and it still won't lock back. Chris Edwards from Glock even verified this at a GSSF match.

Mine is AU 0XX, picked it up on GB not long ago. It has not been shot much at all. The Barrel markings are STH (at least that is what it looks like) my eyes are not what they used to be. Still has the black parts, keeping it that way. Talked to Glock customer service, and he said it was one of the first 9000 batch imported in 1986.

I am keeping in the tupperware box, but put some patches down between the plastic and slide, where they tend to mark the slide. patches with a little oil should help.

Here are a few pics.

Butch, other than the info in the serial/generation thread, do you know much about the numbers of how many were imported in 1986? Were any imported in 1985? The Glock customer service guy told me my AU 0xx was in the first 9000 batch imported to the US. Does that sound right? bbt.marc's ABxxx serial looks to be the oldest so far? bbt.marc does not live in the US and appears to have a gun that was Austrian Army issue?

Butch, other than the info in the serial/generation thread, do you know much about the numbers of how many were imported in 1986?
Yeah! A little more anyway.... :)


Were any imported in 1985?
Yup! There were five G17's bearing the prefix 'AN' imported in 1985, they were used for submission to the BATF and as sales samples.


The Glock customer service guy told me my AU 0xx was in the first 9000 batch imported to the US. Does that sound right?
Yes it does, AU was the ninth of 18 prefixes imported in 1986, each prefix would have 1000 G17's bearing the prefix, the numbers would be 000 through 999.


bbt.marc's ABxxx serial looks to be the oldest so far?
Indeed, I do believe it is! Strangely, the date code on the AA guns shows the date of October 84. AA's were imported to the US in October of 86 - AF (date code date of July-84) being the first ones imported for sales in Jan-86......no, I can't explain why.


bbt.marc does not live in the US and appears to have a gun that was Austrian Army issue?
Could be? But, I think the first Austrian Army guns were marked 'P80':

My earliest G-17 is a 2nd Gen KV***US series, but can we start a lowest numbered G-19 next as I have a 2nd Gen G-19, BX***US that has to be an earlier import.

Trying to date my buddies G17 for him, AU 6XX US is what he sent me. I know he got it used as a B-Day gift while we were in high school, 87'-89'. STH is the three letter code.

Thanks

Looks like a May-July 1986 manufacture date.

Oh!, and by the way... I collect Gen 1's if anyones interested in selling one!

Yup, the STH date code shows it was made in May of 86, and it was apparently imported to the US in July. The prefix 'AU' was the ninth shipment of 1000 G17's imported.

I have AL65xUS. Shoots good, feels better in the hand than a Gen 3 (to me, anyway), and has a big "cool factor" when I use it at a match. Had the upgrade done at a GSSF shoot, but kept all the old parts in case I want to return it to original.

I just bought a Gen 1 gun at a GSSF match a couple of weeks ago. The serial number is AH 6XXUS. The barrel code is BTM.

I bought my G17 Mar of 1987. AZ7XXUS with a barrel date code of CTH. At the time I paid $390.00. I wish I could get a new one for that price now. I've only put a couple thousand rounds through it but as many have stated it's been the most reliable handgun I ever purchased.

I've had AA6XXUS since July 1990...I bought it used from an armorer who supplied weapons for Hollywood films. I never got any history on it, would love to find out if it was one of the Glocks in Die Hard 2.

What would be the value of a p80 gen1 17? A Gen1 P80 would be older than an AAxxx gun, right?

I personly own 8 Generation 1 G17 (AH/AK/AL/AS/BC/BS/CV/CX) and 3 Generation 1 G17L (DA/DA/DB). All have the original black parts/serial number plate, original loader (with the Glock imblem on the top, not side) and the right tubberware boxes. Several are NIB and have never been fired. The only Glock I'm missing is a 1st Generation 19. I even have a Austra Glock P9M (2nd Generation) with Made in Austra without the Smyrna, US stamp.

Would you please tell me what the date code is on the barrel of your G17 that starts with CV? I don't yet have that one listed in my Gen1 project.....Thanks!

BS should have a date code of 'ITT', which shows it was made in September of 1988.
