Mechanics: The action functions correctly. We have not fired this pistol. Four high capacity 17 round magazines are provided. These magazines will not be transferred to California residents, or residents of any state that has magazine capacity restrictions.
Box, Paperwork & Accessories: The factory box with appropriate end label is provided, along with the cleaning rod, brush, magazine loader and manual (including registration card). The box has some scratches, but remains very serviceable. There are four Glock 17 round magazines, two that are “drop free” and two that are not. Also included is a red laser manufactured by Laser Devices, Inc. that mounts on the front of the trigger guard. The laser works by flipping a toggle switch located on its left side.
Our Assessment: This is the Glock that started it all. A first generation 9mm Austrian made Glock model 17. This model was first adopted by the Austrian military, before going on to revolutionize handgun making for the rest of the 20th Century. Glocks now comprise over a third of all U.S. law enforcement issued handguns, a testament to their reliability and longevity. This particular model appears to be as original, with the appropriate sights, slide lock lever, extractor and uncaptured recoil spring and guide rod. For everything from concealed carry and home defense, to competitive action pistol games, to on duty service; this Glock will serve you well.
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This pistol is not on the California “roster of certified for sale handguns”, and can only be transferred to a California resident as a private party transaction at our shop in Simi Valley. This does not apply to out of state buyers. The high capacity magazines will not be transferred to California residents, or residents of any state that has magazine capacity restrictions. br>
