I am geting my new Glock 17 out of jail in a week...

Does anybody have a pic of a Glock 17 (or anything similar) with a 15 and 33 round clip in it? I just want to see how it looks. Does the 15 round clip stick down further? I know the 33 round has to stick out further...

Sorry if these are dumbe questions but yes I am a newb... LOL.

Before someone else rips you a new one.... the proper term is magazine, not "cilp".

The G17 comes with either a 10 round mag (for restricted capacity states) or a 17 round mag. the 17 rounder does not "stick down" any further than the 10 rounder.

Edit: here is a link to what a G17 looks like with a 33 rounder:

Why don't you just use the search button to find a picture of what your looking for

I'm sure you probably wouldn't be able to find anything on Google. Because it's such a noob question that no one would ever think someone would be wondering about it :rofl:

Since Glocks do not feed from clips, your difficulty in finding a picture makes sense. Im interested myself in seeing a Glock 17 with a 33 round clip in the action. :rofl2:

Sorry about saying "Clip"... I know better than that. It is just stuck in my head since before I have been reading on here. It wont happen again.

OK I got it now. The 17 round magazine will not stick out of the gun any further than a 10 round mag....

Thanks for the pic of the 33 round mag. That looks crazy but lots of firepower.

First of all welcome to Cal Guns...

Second, the 15 round magazine is made for the Glock 19, not the Glock 17 and isn't long enough to work in the 17.

The GLOCK 17 runs with 10 round and 17 round magazines.

Here are two G17s with 17 round magazines. The OD on the right has a MagPul base plate. Still the same capacity at 17 rounds. the 10 rounders look the same as these.

Thank you for the pics and the explanation. I really apreciate it. Good to see young people at the range enjoying their guns.

Clips are for M1 Garands

Mags are for pistols.

Who's to say who Bob works for (Fed, State LEO)? If he's present then anyone can be shooting standard or High-Capacity mags that he legally owns and possesses.

The 33 rd mag in a G26 is comedy. Looks like a hammer.

I'am just a regular guy who started buying GLOCK magazines back in 1987. So I have plenty of preban magazines; some have been rebuilt some are still old and since it takes $ to rebuild them, I do them as I need too. :D

On Target doesn't monitor magazines. I am a yearly member as well as my kids and they know us by name. The answer is: I own these magazines and since I own them, I can use them anywhere in California. Enough said. ;)

I've owned 40 glocks, sold and bought since 1987. Still have more than 20. I had a couple of LARGE BOXES of magazines before the ban. We knew the ban was coming and we gun-nuts stocked up where ever we could find them; gunshows, gunstores, etc...some magazines we paid a premium. Some we had before the hoopla.....

Lately I've been rebuilding 5 at a time.

These 5 are next in line:

I order them in from Lonewolf or other supplies in KIT rebuild kits....Like these. This is how they come from LoneWolf for example.

I have no qualms about using my legal magazines. :D

You're welcome Mike. I feel that we own our children a Gun Education. Complete. (in addition to college).

So my 5 kids (4 grown, one daughter above left at home)...all shoot; all own guns (most from me...hahaha)..and we also have two reloading presses up and running for most of our guns.

This is just AMERICA and how it should be.

You're going to love that Glock 17 Mike.

We've brushed shoulders at On Target without a doubt, I too frequent the place regularly. I have a 33preban, but Itll probably still just stay at home except for when i go outdoor private shooting.. just more fun that way. Happy shooting

Oceanbob,

the picture of your daughter facing the camera...what barrel is that on the G17? how long is it? does it improve accuracy or some other benefit?
Can you provide me a link.

Oh..can a lone wolf 40 to 9mm conversion barrel (fits in a G35) be used on a G17?

thank you

drunktank
08-22-2012, 10:03 AM
Won't fit in the 17. Barrel is too wide in circumference.

thanks drunktank.

I know this is weird..but i love the threaded barrel protector look on a gun.

what is cold welding it? if you cold weld the thread protector to the barrel..how can you remove the barrel from slide to clean it?

thanks

tal3nt

I believe if you permanently attached a thread protector to a threaded barrel, you wouldn't be able to completely remove the barrel from the slide (on a GLOCK anyways). This is using my common sense judgement only however.. I mean otherwise, the protector wouldn't exactly be permanent, which means you'd be breaking the law..? Gray Area stuff
