I bought mine in either March or April of 1988 for $450 plus tax. I sent mine back for the upgrade/improvement to the trigger mechanism sometimes in the early 1990s as well, either 1992 or 1993.

I didn't pay attention to a new label. I was pissed because I shipped the G17 back to Glock in my original container and it came back with the new non-cartridges-slotted box.

Try again. I wouldn't sell my G17 Original Perfection for twice that price. Or even triple that price. Can't find another one so easily to replace it. Y'all can keep your fingergrooved, upgraded, stippled Glocks. I'll stick to the real deal.
Can you dig it?
