I only know of one Glock that I consider really rare and I don't have one so I can't put up a pic of it. The first Generation G19 is a very rare bird here in the States. If I remember correctly only about 200 were imported. Most are in museums or private collections ie: those that have them know what they are.

It's not factory new, but I guarantee there is no other Glock on the planet that looks like this:



That is one cool looking GLOCK you have there Joey. I want to ask though, did you happen to weigh the slide before and after the machine work?

Did you do that yourself?

I did not weight the slide. It still shoots fine and that's all I really care about.

I did not do the machine work, however I did do the stippling. I'll look up the contact info for the shop doing the machining. The serrations are actually similar to those on the S&W M&P. He also does the top slide cuts on M&P's. From what I've seen the Magpul guys are getting in on this stuff as well...he does other stuff as well, machining RMR mounts into handgun slides, other various gun stuff.

I'll post up his info in a bit.

I don't know if it meets the definition of "rare", but this a is a very early import G17 that belongs to a friend of mine. By very early I mean sometime in the second year of importation.

I kind of think this was a bad premise for a picture thread. Rare Glocks look like all the other Glocks. I might as well pull one of mine out of the safe, paint it pink & purple & look at it.

I hope this thread isn't too old to respond to,but I recently acquired a G17 from Aimsurplus and did a grip chop so it would accept G19 magazines,and a reduction to fit my hand better.I also rounded the trigger guard just because I felt like it,and stippled the grip for more traction.While I was at it I also polished the trigger bar,and safety plunger.I also installed an extended slide release and Lone Wolf connector.I have a set of the XS big dot sights on they way.

yep, glock hand cut the g17 length grip down to g19 length on those. i read they only made about a down for a federal LE contract trial though. who knows lol

glock also made thumb safety models for the tasmanian police only:

Glock has manufactured a number of Glock 17 pistols fitted with an external, 1911-style, manual safety. The pistols were made at the request of the Tasmanian Police force. The actual number of pistols produced, date of manufacture and other details are not known.

Thanks! I did all the work myself so the pride of accomplishment and ownership is pretty high with this one.Not to mention that I saved myself probably close to $300 in custom work.I'm a 1911 guy at heart so the manual safety would be nice,but I can live without it.The grip angle/circumference on the other hand just doesn't point well for me,so I fixed it.I love the Glock simplicity and reliability,and they are too hard to ignore.I've owned 2 G23's and a G30 in the past,and probably wouldn't have sold them if I knew how easy the grip is to change.
