I'm still packing my 20 y/o G17 (AGKXXX) with 80,000 plus rounds, ON DUTY. I fired 100 rounds just a little while ago at the range.

Most of the tennifer finish is worn off and NO WAY am I going to get her refinished. She definitely looks the part of the old school wonder nine's.

The internals were replaced years ago when Glock did their recall and two years ago the original extractor broke. Other than that I just clean her and away she goes.

Hell, I'll probably retire before she does. I have another second Gen (two letter prefix) at home but that one has much fewer rounds through her.

Serial prefix is "AT." Gun was manufactured June '86. I originally bought four, @ $254 each (L/E discount)

I traded two away for other Glocks down the pike. Wish I hadn't.

I still have another one NIB, and a like new 26 baby Glock.

If I retire her, it's going into the locker. I've been with this baby longer than two wives. They chesated on me. My 17 has been faithful!

Excellent!

If you check on the barrel, I would expect you to find the three small letters 'STH'. That's the date code, it shows that it was made in May of 86 (imported in June....which is the date Glock Smyrna gives when asked).

I've still got my very first glock, a G17, one of the first to hit the market way back. It now has over 220k rounds, with only spring changes to date. Every 50k rounds I send it back to Glock for inspection, and each time they try to keep it. The last time at 200k rounds, they wanted it bad, but I've got an attachment to the piece, and they could offer me just about anything and I'd keep it.

My AL6xx Gen1 rides at my hip as I type this, and we are going to shoot an IDPA match in about ten days. Retire it? No way.
