Ordered it Monday for $398.20...GSSF discount, since I'm a regular guy...my G17Gen4 arrived at my FFL today. My FFL didn't even charge me for transfer fee...just said, "You'll pay me when I see you next time.:D Background check just took 5 minutes.

Tried the different backstrap grips, but ended up liking the non-backstrap. Cleaned it, shot it, no problems...as usual with Glocks. Recoil is nothing, and racking it is stiffer because of the double recoil spring. Switched the ambi magazine catch, but I'm a righty. HUGE improvement on the grip texture. My first TX gun purchase.

Enjoy:

Nice buy! I've been debating whether to get a Gen4 or a G27 (same price courtesy of GSSF). Are the G22/G23 Gen4's out already?

3 17 round magazines and a 5 minute background check? It seems to me Texas needs new laws to to rein in dangerous people like you.

Nice Glock, why the hell did you take pictures of it in some little girls room? I hope.

The G22 are but not the G23. You can either get the G22 or G17 in Gen4...they are everywhere here in TX.

As for Hello Kitty...GlockaKitty. Makes Glocks less scary.

Excuse my ignorance, what is GSSF?

And did you hear about issues that 17Gen4's have had with commercial 9mm? Apparently the new recoil springs are designed for NATO spec 9x19, and US commercial ammo which doesn't have the same amount of pressure, sometimes leads to stovepiping.

It is a shooting program Glock has. You can order a certificate once per year which gives you great discount.

It came with a plastic packet that included instructions, a med and lrg backstrap, an extra pin and a push pin tool; almost like the Glock tool, but has the Glock logo on the other end. Use the push pin. On the photos, it just has the standard small strap.

Mine doesn't have any issues after 500+ rounds with 9mm and 9x19...going on a thousand tonight.

I call BS.
