    Glock 17 Shooting Demonstration HD VIDEO

    The Glock 17, the original and, in some people's opinion, the best. It debuted in 1982 and has been going strong ever since.

    Do you have one?
    What do you like most about it?
    What do you like least about it?

    What have you done to yours? I've added Talon Grips, that's it.

    Here's a HD video I uploaded giving some pretty nice shots of it in action, and then some accuracy demonstration, or, I should say, an indication of what it can do in more capable hands than mine.

    Link to video here.

    No, I do not have "one."

    Most liked: reliability, simplicity.

    Least liked: factory sights.


    Most of my Glocks get a sight upgrade, grip cavity plug, and maybe an extended slide stop.
    A few have received a Vickers magazine catch button.

    Seems the number one gripe are the factory sights. What do you recommend as a replacement?

    Kind of depends on what your primary/secondary use(s) will be.

    For general-purpose defensive use, I prefer night-sights; Meprolight, Glock, Trijicon are all good with me (never used any others). I generally ignore the dots in the daytime, and use then like standard target sights unless it is dark enough that I can't see the edge of the sights when on-target. Some companies offer different colors for the front and rear sights; I have one Glock with a sight set having red/orange dots on the rear and standard green on the front, and they work fine, but I'm okay with green/green too, as that is what I am most used to. Be aware that some of the colors other than green may be warranted for less time than the green sights (they dim more quickly than the green ones, which seem to stay brighter, longer).

    For competition or target-shooting/range-only use, Heinie makes some very high-visibility plain black sights that I like very much (have a set on my G34). Some folks swear by the light-pipe type front sights, but I've found them to be a little too fragile for my taste (just fine in use, though).

    I have a gen3 G17 I purchased in a private estate sale. I installed the Glock 3.5 connector (part #00135), a GlockParts.com 6 pound trigger spring, Trijicon night sights with Novak rear sight (GL-04), and did the 25 cent trigger job. It has the somewhat rough texture slight with the two-pin frame. The slide rails still had some of the Glock orange grease on them.
