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.

Hi Bobby!

I need the date code from your G17 barrel too!

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.

My G17 was s/n AP1##...until it went kaboom. I'm grateful that Glock fixed it free of charge, but it sucks that they replaced the frame with a Gen3. I would much rather have a Gen1.

G17 kB's are rare, what were you shooting in it?

Have an AP xxx. Date code LTH.
Has the original Black parts as well.
Debating whether to send it in for the "Update" or to keep it all original.
Any thoughts???

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:
Glock Collector's Club


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.

Thanks for the help Butch!
Firing pin safety looks fine to my untrained eye. No dents, dings, or scratches.
Looks like I have a trip to San Antonio in my future.

You can get the upgrade parts from this GB auction.

http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=180492766

I updated the parts and kept the old "black" internals too.
