Can any of you Glock 17 owners tell me how much the slide weighs?

TIA!

looks like hilander nailed it. Depending on how accurate your looking to be, those aftermarket sites are heavier than the stockers. Also, it appears to be one on the newer 17's with the angled ejection port. The early one with the square port may be heavier. I don't know it glock removed metal somewhere else when they made this change.

Yes, 15 degree extractor face cut, however the barrel hood is flat, the later ones are relieved in that area, but even all that is only a few grams.

Your metal sights add to the weight.

I don't own any Glocks that have stock sights, they are crap. I even have a couple of dozen (take off) stock sights in the gun bag that anyone can have.

I know, but you were being precise with your answer, and I was just noting that you didn't account for the difference in your sights. Assuming this even matters to the OP.

Actually I was refering to the 15 degree slide cut versus the old straight cut, but since you asked, and because I am know as "MR. Wonderful" for being so helpfull and all, here is the answer.
That scale is not precise, this one is (it can actually run down to 10^-5 grams. Do not try this at home, these things start at $4,000 and go up to $12,000.

OEM weighs in at a WHOPPING 1 gram, and the Heines tip the scale at 11 grams. So expect your slide speed to go down about 2%.

Oh snap! Anyhow thanks for the info. I'm making a new pistol caliber AR out of parts laying around the house. One of those parts is a g19 recoil spring. Let's see if i can blow up my face:)

Man, you don't even want to know about blowing up an AR, whoa, it can hurt bad. I have seen a few blow up in competition, it's way worse than blowing up a Glock. Anyway, for comparison here is the slide weight of a G17L. I knew it was a bit heavier....

Let the fun begin! Red Jacket style. I'm going to use a long string. "This may be a game changer." LOL


Ooops! I mean I have a g17 recoil spring.

frigg, I always believed that G34 and G17L slide weights were supposed to be the same as the G17, but the same loads I used in my G17 were more sensitive in my both guns. The only explanation would be added slide weight. I don't currently have a G34 (have had), but I know that the G17L didn't 100% like my standard load, 115 Montana Gold Jacketed Hollow Points, on top of 4 grains of TiteGroup at 1.145 overall.

Seriously though, be careful with that AR build, the pressure is way higher than any pistol.

Why would it be any higher? I'm not using hot 9mm loads. It's already a 9mm AR conversion designed to work with 9mm. I'm just replacing the buffer spring system with the Glock spring system.

An 1.5" of barrel shouldn't make any difference. This will be an AR pistol build.

Longer barrel.

Gotcha, your other post only said "pistol caliber AR." Figurred it was a rifle.
