The weapon that started the polymer pistol revolution, the Glock 17 has earned itself a permanent place in the history of firearms. Rather than simply buy one of the competitors that compares itself to this prestigious company, why not just get the original and work from there? In its 3rd generation, the Glock 17 Gen 3 9mm continues to impress, improving key aspects of the weapon to ensure you get the absolute best performance at the range or in a real life situation.
Appropriately accepting 17 rounds of 9mm ammo, this full-sized offering from Glock in its 3rd generation continues to impress shooters around the world. Its polymer frame and specially treated steel slide provide for a virtually indestructible and ultra-reliable weapon. Using the “safe action” system, shooters enjoy a true point and shoot feel, eliminating the need to manually turn the safety on or off. The fixed sights offer a more than adequate solution for the average shooter, and the hexagonal rifling in the barrel ensure an accurate performance.
If you want a reliable and accurate full-sized pistol for home defense, there are few options out there that have the reputation and reliability of the G17.
