NICE FIND!! There's nothing like a Gen1 G17. I've got two right now - one's a safe queen, the other is a shooter, Now you must face the question all Gen1 owners face - to upgrade or not to upgrade (as in "six part upgrade" - new trigger/bar, firing pin safety plunger/spring, extractor, connector, spring-loaded bearing). Glock will send the parts for free if you are a Certified Armorer, or will install them for free if you aren't. You may want updated sights, also. The early adjustable ones were designed for easy removal post-importation (they were there for the purpose of adding extra BATF import points - they're junk).

Enjoy the best grip-feel Glock ever developed. They got it right the first time!

Thanks. As far as accessories and parts is there anything from Gen 2 and 3 that won't fit it?

If you replace the slide stop lever, you will need the two-pin frame version specific for the G17 (with the "spike"). You will also need the older-style, non-LCI extractor (90deg./0) and appropriate spring-loaded bearing if you ever need to replace those parts. The major Glock parts vendors like Lone Wolf Dist. and Glockmeister have these parts clearly listed on their websites.

You MIGHT (repeat, MIGHT) find metal front sights to require fitting to get them into the slide hole. My "shooter" Gen1 didn't take anything other than the OEM polymer front without slight file work. My Gen2 G19, by comparison, had no such issue with the same manufacturer's steel sights.

I put a pair of Trijicon night sights on my 2nd generation 17L and even with a site installation tool, it was incredibly tight. If I had it to do over, I would do it differently.
