Hi there ,

This is my first post so excuse me if isn't done correctly.

I've been wondering if you can buy a replacement slide and barrel for a 17c and if it wud it fit a standard 17? Or is there a kit to make it compensated? I wanted to get a 17c originally but were not available at the time and won't be for a while. By the way I live in CA so I'm limited on options. :( thanks for reading.

So I am a noob and have heard this issue. What is the positive thing about getting it compensated. The ONLY thing I have read is less recoil - but on a 9mm it really seems worthless.

I am interested because I am buying my first gun and was going for a 17c but then everything I read said there is no reason for it.

A lot of people feel it works well for competition. I don't care for compensated barrels. I like maximum velocity from my ammunition. I'm sure Box of Truth has some article on it.

It's also a pain to clean to vents. I have a compensated 357 magnum snubby and 12 gauge shotgun. Higher calibers, I see, can use a little help. Non-Magnums don't really make much difference in my hands.

Magnaport will be cheaper than a new slide and barrel.

Google them

If you got a 17C slide and barrel, it would work on a Gen3 G17 frame.

Glockmeister sells brand new uppers, you could call them and ask them if they have a G17C slide and barrel.
