After watching many limited production runs go by and not acting I finally purchased one.
I love the long sight radius and it joins my 24C as my 2 favorite Glocks. Better accuracy and maximum velocity. I have owned many different Glocks but these are the only ones I'll keep.

Same here. Got mine a couple weeks ago. Had to drive over 100 miles one way to get it. Got it at regular ol' Glock pricing, pretty good because I came real close to spending $1000 on Gunbroker. I've been wanting one for long time. Feels good to finally take possession. Great shooter. Definitely a keeper.

Have never owned a Glock . Do not think I have ever fired one .

Have heard a lot about the brand , both positive and negative .

I do own one polymer handgun , a Springfield XD .45 ACP . A friend owned it & was in a bind for cash . He offered it to me & I took it off his hands . Fired it a few times . Different from what I was accustomed to . Can not say better or worse , just different .

Had one for years, great gun. It is not my "carry gun"...so why not get the longest barrel?

My Ruger 22 is a 6 7/8" govt target

My Browning HP is a 6" Competition GP

I agree. My 17-L is strictly going to be a range gun. I have the 17, 19, and 26 if I want the same gun in something suitable for carry.

By the way, CDNN has a good sale going on now for OEM Glock factory magazines, if anyone is interested.

I had to chuckle when I discovered that the supplied cleaning rod was the same length as one found with the 17.

I had a beautiful clear, cool, still morning today. So I headed out to the range with the new Glock 17-L, and a good supply of ammo. I brought along the following:

100 rounds Federal Champion boxer brass 115 Gr. FMJ

100 rounds of Federal American Eagle 124 Gr. FMJ

50 rounds of Fiocchi 115 Gr. FMJ

100 rounds of Federal 115 Gr. +P+ JHP (9BPLE)

All 350 rounds fed, fired, and ejected without a hiccup out of both magazines. At 25 yards the adjustable Glock sights printed dead on. This gun is a joy to shoot. That long barrel really helps in the accuracy dept. A 6 O'clock hold chewed out the bull in all of the targets. The only thing I noticed was the Federal 9BPLE printed about an inch or 2 higher than the rest. But not enough to worry about. All the Internet talk about this gun being picky with 115 Gr. FMJ was nonsense. It shoots it as good as any other weight ammo.

It performed in the typically boring Glock fashion. Not a single thing to complain about. This trigger is without question the best of any Glock pistol I own. And it got better the more I shot it. But after 350 rounds, I was getting tired of loading magazines. I was totally happy with the guns performance, so I decided to pack it in, and head for home. Afterward I gave it a field strip, along with a good wet cleaning. And she's ready for another trip to the range. If you are walking the fence on one of these 17-L's, don't hesitate to grab one. You'll be very pleased how accurately this pistol shoots.

All you needed was a bunch of 30 round magazines to make it easier, Bill. wink

I picked up a bunch of OEM Glock 33 rounder's, back before the Obama election scare. And they are fun. But after 17 rounds I'm ready to take a breather. grin

Reloading magazines must be the most onerous task at the range, aside from policing for brass.

Been using one for about 5 years now. I wouldn't go to the range without it. Really helps loading 32 round 9 MM, AR-15 magazines.

I've seen those tools advertised for years. I just never got around to trying one.

Once you do you'll never go to the range without one. It's one of those things like a microwave oven, or a garage door opener. After you try it, you'll wonder how you lived without one for so long.
