Braadford H. on Glock 17
I bought a friend's 17, had extended mag release and night sights already on it. I added a crimson trace to it with the rear activated button. That is the set up, now the review. This is a great fire arm to start with as it is very easy to clean and take apart to get to the bits and pieces. It is a decent weight as it is not too heavy and it is not too light, and being 9mm filled up on ammo (to cali standards, 10 rounds for some reason) it is still fine weight enough for my 110 pound wife to handle. As far as accuracy, it was about perfect when I got it, it all comes to training with it. Sighting in the laser was a chore surprisingly. But once it was set it was easy enough to swap from laser to regular sights. I have fed through high grain and mid grain ammo as well as reloaded stuff and have only had one problem with the way it fed and that is at the range it would eject the last round, feed the next one but it would error in some way to where the slide would not fully reset and the trigger would not function- therefore I had to eject the mag and clear it and it would be fine. It did this after about 270 rounds at the range on my wife and She said she wasn't sure but she might have hit the mag release, this would account for it but it did it to me as well once but I know I hit the mag release with my finger by accident. Dumb move but easy to fix. Next I swapped out the spring for a "Fire Dragon Dual Action Buffer Spring" I got at a gun show and compensated barrel. This set up was interesting as they made it hard to work the manual slide action on the piston. It was almost impossible for me, let alone my wife to operate. I fired a few rounds and it was a noted difference in accuracy and recoil, not enough to justify the difficulty in action. I then swapped the barrel for the factory but kept the dragon spring. This was pretty nice. Recoil was reduced enough where speed shooting was more accurate and the misses was able to shoot more rounds than usual as she said it didnt hurt her hands as much. I have numerous other firearms, but as far as simplicity, ease of use, cleaning and accuracy I think that this weapon is the best for serious users as well as entry level. The ability to fire readily available and cheap ammunition coupled with stopping power (especially in hollow point, I use the Winston Ranger SXT, great stuff) it can't be beat for all around qualities. Cons I have are associated with after market items. ...more
I have a Gen 1/2 made in 1985 that balances very well in my hands. I do have a Hogue sleeve on it for retention. I also use a NY trigger spring with a minus disconnect. Shoots like a revolver intentionally. I have never had a slam fire and neither have anyone who has shot my gun. I do, however, use it only as a belt holster gun. I do not even carry it IWB. I do have a US military holster that is fitted to a load bearing vest in a horizontal position, but I rarely use it that way. I have shot and owned a lot of Glocks of several calibers and sizes, but only have one left in my collection. My wife and I settled on the S&W SD9VE as our shared carry guns and we each own one. To complete my carry rotation I bought a S&W Shield in 9mm. The triggers are stock on both of mine and I like the triggers. The M&P Shield has a crisper trigger, but they have a very similar feel. I think the Glock may be a very good choice for some tasks, but it is not "perfect" by any means. Few guns are. ...more
The Glock 17 Gen 5: A Subjective, Yet Systematic Review (0-2000 Rounds)
The Gen 5 when aggressively reloading a magazine will automatically go back into battery without racking the slide or releasing the slide stop. There is definitely cosmetic wear to the new barrels (two rings quickly appear with use). The non-worn parts of the barrel measured 14.42mm and the second more pronounced ring at 2000 rounds was 14.38mm (another .01 mm ‘deeper’ since 1000 rounds measurements). The Marksman barrel did result in about 30 feet per second higher velocities in the Gen 5 compared to the Gen 4. The half moon cut out on the front and bottom of the grip was catching the bottom of my grip and became a comfort issue when shooting more than ~150 rounds. However, it was very reliable and I like the new trigger and barrel. ...more
10 round mag
Full capacity magazines will absolutely fit and function 100%! However, if you insert a 17 round magazine into your "CA legal" Glock 17 within the borders of California, the first thing that will happen is the gun will malfunction by failing to strip a round into the chamber. As long as the magazine is in the gun, even if you single-load a shell and drop the slide on it, the gun will fired only once and the slide will lock back. At the same time as you insert the 17 round magazine, your location will be instantly recorded and transmitted via sat-feed to local police, the highway patrol, ICE, and BATFE. Your location will be visually recorded using an NSA "keyhole" type satellite which can read the words on a dime from 150 miles up, even through clouds and smoke thanks to quantum thermal imagery. At this point attempting to escape is futile as the LEOs will be converging on your position within moments and will have exact images of you, your car, everyone with you, the gun you are holding, and of course, your location to within a meter. An FBI file will be automatically created on you, your entire family, friends and co-workers. Go ahead, ask me "how" I know all this.... My advice; if you live in California, do NOT bring any "banned" capacity magazine within six inches of a firearm in which it could function. Just don't do it.
