Glock 17s for Sale

I got an email yesterday; Mr. Gun Dealer is selling police trade in Glock 17s (both Gen 2 and Gen 3 models) for $389.99. Looks like they have holster wear, but I can't imagine any of them being shot out. And if they are, you can ship them to Smyrna and they'll refurbish them for free.

I sent my Gen 2 (before I lost it in the flood) back to them in 2005 and they returned what was basically a new pistol. The frame and slide were the only original pieces; the barrel and all the widgets on the slide and frame were replaced.

Did your Gen 2 have a light rail on the frame?

No sir. AFAIK, that was a Gen 3 thing. I've never seen a Gen 2 with a light rail.

I have a “gen 2.5” A 2-hole glock 17 with a light rail. I also have a gen 2 glock 19 with no rail. It would be interesting if you could send a Gen 2 back to factory and get an upgraded frame in return.

I didn't know such a thing even existed.

If you call Smyrna, they could probably tell you if it was possible to get an upgraded frame. I'm a big fan of the 17 Gen 2, so besides night sights I like mine "plain".

My 17 probably has 10k rounds thru it and has never missed a beat. I don't know or care what gen it is. When I pull the trigger it goes off. Every time.

I have a couple of those for the G43 and the larger frames, 26/19. They bolt up well and easy.

They did for me. Here's the short version of my interaction with them.

My G17 was made in 89. It was an import and came with the adjustable sights mandated by the 68 GCA. In 2004, during our return to the mainland, the TSA managed to break them off somehow. (I made the mistake of letting the TSA guy dig through the Pelican case of disassembled guns, and I let him close the case. When we got to Seattle the sights were broken off.) Anyway, I called Smyrna and they said to send in just the slide and they would replace the sights for free. I did so, and about a week later got a phone call from the Glock armorer in Georgia (the actual dude working on my slide) asking if I knew the gun was made in '89 and telling me it looked well used.

The armorer offered, if I sent him the rest of the pistol, to tune and refurb it for free. I did so, and a couple of weeks later got it back along with a note listing everything they replaced (it had a new barrel, a new mainspring, and all new 3rd echelon parts on the slide and frame), a new case, and a target showing that they test-fired it. An all it cost me was the price of shipping it to them. I was very pleased with their customer service. Like Benchmade, they have a lifelong customer.

I just wish I hadn't lost all my guns in that mudslide a few years ago...

I have an early Gen 2 G 17 that was pristine when I bought it. No light rail. I also had a G 19 Gen 2, no light rail that for the life of everyone who touched it, shot 3" left. Glock finally sent me a refurb Gen 3 that was noticeably used, but new internals etc, all free of charge. It lives in my get home bag.

That has been my experience. I bought my first 17 in 1986 with my latest being a Gen 4.
