Glock 17 - 9mm
Ratings & Reviews
The original is still very nice come Gen 3, my wife and I had a great time with it out of the box. Forgiving and somewhat simpler it doesn't require anything much to perform very well. 2k rounds with a Tungsten guide rod feel strong and with a set of aftermarket sights likely a longer distance gun. Easy to learn with not to big for anyone except the smaller conceal figures.
Gen 1 love
I bought a gen 1 17 in the late 80s early 90s. I've put countless rounds through it and it works like a champ every time. I have multiple pistols. But it's my concealed carry piece and my goto.
Use the Glock 17 for backup...Hooah!
Great pistol. Taught my wife to shoot with this gun. She fell in love with shooting and with Glock.
Glock 17 king of guns.
My EDC Piece

The Glock 17 Gen 4 is my EDC that I trust my life with against someone who may be trying to end mine. What great comfort it is knowing I have a Glock 17 on my hip.
Glock 17 Gen 3
by Tactical Security Officer T.M Gillette
I work eat and sleep with my Glock 17 Gen 3 ! Best sidearm ever made in my book ! Easy clean , load . Buy yours today ! Don't forget to purchase two more magazines .
Gen 4 is my #2
This is one of the best 9mm Pistols. I know there are many, and the Glock 19 is #1 in rhe U.S., but the lightweight, thin, conceilable full size 9mm Glock 17 Gen 4 feels great with a backstrap including the beavertail because NATO FMJs are nice practice and not garbage. High.pressure for affordable practice ammo. I usually use NATO 239 grain .45 acp Glock 21 models, but this is my 2nd favorite. Haven't tried the Gen 5 yet, and I'm generally more comfortable with Gen 4 duty sized Glocks. A better recoil assembly may help with any FTE or erratic ejection issues.
Could Be The Best!
Possibly the finest poly pistol ever! Look how many LE agencies throughout the world trust the Glock 17. You don’t get that type of endorsement without getting the little things right! The reliability of the G17 is unquestioned; so what’s not to like? Ugly pistol? Check. Not the cleanest or lightest trigger break on the market? Check. The original “plastic” pistol? Check. Front and rear factory sights that are...ummm?...not the greatest? Check. Goes bang every time and puts the rounds on target like a champ? Check to that, as well. Survived and actually flourished during years and years of torture tests applied by many different agencies, police departments and militaries? That, too, would be a check. If you’ve never trusted your life with a Glock 17, you can never truly appreciate the comfort so many experience, law enforce and civilians alike, by having it by their side. Get one. You’ll see what I mean.
Mine is an early, low s.n. gen 2.
Bought it quite used with no knowledge of its history.I have modified the trigger and striker assemblies to improve the trigger pull and added fiber optic sights. It has been 100% reliable! I have owned it for approx.7 years. Steel cased, factory remanufactured, and old ammo-it just eats it up and spits it out! I own a collection of pistols and buy and sell them, but am keeping this one.
I do clean it a lot . It has original barrel.
I purchased my G17, Gen4 in order to have a single-action 9mm for use on the range. Previously I was shooting a double-action .40 cal. The ease of shooting and feel is excellent. It included the various size back straps, which is definitely a plus. I installed the Ultimate Pyramid Flat Face Trigger Assembly, Extended Slide Release, and optic sites. Howevqer, straight out of the box it shoots very well. In total I have around $900 into this gun, which I feel is well worth the cost for my preferences. It fits well in my hand, accurate, minimal recoil, crisp trigger break & quick reset, good balance, and reliable. Drawing from the holster is smooth, but it's not too large to carry concealed. Great on the gun range and used during tac ops. Highly recommend this gun for a new or experienced shooter.
Recommend this pistol to anyone who is looking for a reliable accurate balanced hand gun

Awesome hand gun never had a jam tried to make it jam by shooting 4 18 round clips as fast as possible would not jam and also very balanced with accuracy
G17 Gen4 - Outstanding 9mm
I have owned my Gen4 Glock 17 for a couple of years and feel that it is one of the best 9mm pistols on the market today. I have installed the"Ultimate Pyramid Trigger Assembly"and fiber optics sights. These options just enhances the abilities of this pistol. In addition, the large back strap and beaver tail gives a good feel and comfort. Because of the design angle and size, acquiring a good grip from the draw is comfortable and smooth. Needless to say, this is critical for speed in acquiring sight alignment for a quick shot on target. As a duty firearm, it is lightweight as not to fatigue you by having to carry a heavy pistol all day. On the range or during tacticals the accuracy is excellent. Shooting with either my right or left hand is not an issue as it is well balanced. Whether taking precision shots or rapid fire I have yet to have had a malfunction. Bottom line is that I highly recommend this pistol for home defense, duty, or even competition shooting.
That one time you need a weapon that keeps your head above ground.

There was this one time in 2015 where I got into a situation with my buddies that we didn't have any oil or cleaning kit and none was coming any time soon. It was the British military and we were elated that we didn't have to clean our pistols and also, flapping like a two-stroke engine that the gun would not fire after a few rounds. Turns out I got into a close and personal situation and this thing just kept going and going and going through a whole contact. To this day I still have dreams about this pistol I was issued and how it saved my life.
If I could own a gun in the UK I would powerslide into the store and get this!
Can't knock it just keeps the carbon out of the parts and your set. The sights used to drive me insane mind, But when your in pistol pushing power guess what. It works. Thanks for my life Glock :).
My "Go To" Pistol
I have had my Glock 17, Gen 4 for about 5 years. To this day I still use it as my duty carry for a number of reasons; durability, accuracy, versatility, weight, round count, balance, etc. The only modifications that I have done to my pistol are; Pyramid Trigger, TruGlo Optic Sights, Stainless Steel Competition Recoil Spring, and Grip Tape. All of these items were purchased through the GlockStore. Having the "backstrap" options gives an excellent fit for the pistol in my hand. Having several other pistols, the Glock 17, Gen 4 is my "go to" pistol and I always feel confident when it is on my side.
