Gen 1 Glock Motorcycle Police Unit...

Glock Collector's Club

I just bought a Gen1 G17 from a gentleman that is a Motorcycle officer that carried it and retired it many years ago...I couldnt say no for $300 just a tad wear not much...

looks like it had the 6 part upgrade and had a extended slide stop put on it... Also the night sights are dead on it and says glock on top along a MH3 number on the side of the sights...

Whats interesting is the finish is exactly like my 2008 glock with the slick shiny finish that they stopped recently making...Did they do that for the police since the original finish got wore easily?


Now the MOST interesting part... Im cleaning it and i see something on top of the slide towards the back sights and you have to angle it in the light to see... Im thinking cause of the new glock finish on top of the original there was an engraving... took me a little to figure it out and this is what the symbol looks like... does anybody know of it?


Its west palm beach Motor unit symbol =)

I found it this is symbol and this is the website... Cool i got a gen 1 glock with a motorcycle officer symbol...

Here is the picture of the symbol but doesnt have Motor on top and unit on the bottom like on the glock... and here is the website i found this symbol on...

hard to see but here is the symbol on the slide with unit under it... If i tilt the slide the other way you can see it says motor on top...

That's the standard motor unit insignia for a lot of motor units, in FL and elsewhere;

Are you in the WPB area?

Yeah, it's a fairly common symbol, the winged wheel with the arrow- among motor units in a number of FL agencies;

So now, to figure out which one had this gun....

im curious if the symbol is engraved or laser etched... you think if i have them take the finish off and have robar redo the slide it will show up or i should leave it alone?

It looks pretty faint now; I would leave it as it is;

I have a Gen-1 G-17 (my very first Glock, purchased new in 1988 ) and it still a good shooter, a couple of hundred thousand rounds (for real) and 26 years down the road.....
