G17 Generation 1 w/ box and mags - new to me

How did I do?

Yesterday, I found a G17 online for sale locally. It is in decent shape, has 3 mags (2 g17 u-shaped preban, and a g19 u-shaped preban with +2), the original matching box, adjustable sights, and a laser guide rod. The best part - I paid $420. I plan to remove the laser and get an original guide rod. Any help would be appreciated where I could find one of those. I feel like I got an incredible deal, especially since I will probably get $175 out of the laser. I don't have pictures yet, as it's hidden in the safe from my wife...

Should I contact Glock about any updates? Are there benefits to let them go over it? I don't plan to shoot it as I already have a G23 and G19. The adjustable sights seem primitive.

145 views and no comments. wow.

I yanked the lasermax out and replaced the guiderod with a replacement I found on ebay. While I was in there, I cleaned it up a bit. I guess I need to get some pictures loaded....

There may be several updates for your pistol. If you get it updated, be sure to save the original parts. If you send it in to Glock, I doubt that you will get the parts back. You might also check with an Armorer at a GSSF match. Just ask beforehand if you can have the old parts for the collector status of them.

Very nice find. I like the 1st gen G17's also. Good job. What's the serial number prefix? Post pics when you can.

I believe that was early 1989 from my quick research. I'll try to get some pictures up. It's been hiding in the safe from the wife. All glocks look the same to her, but I can't let her spot multiple black guns in one sighting!

Good find at a real nice price.

The orig 17 is still by far my favorite.
