Well ladies and gentlemen, after shooting lots of Glocks and tireless nights of searching for the best deal I could find, I finally settled on my new toy. I went with a Glcok 17 Gen3 with custom Trijicon "i" night sights (gun was ordered custom for a buyer, turns out he didn't want to wait the entire time for it to come in, so I picked it up) for $619. I know its a little more than I wanted to spend, but good deal with the sights on it, they glow brighter than anything I've ever seen...... anyways, here are some pictures too, pardon the terrible quality, they are from my phone.

P.S. I already ordered my chrome extended 4-piece kit, grip plug, and my Armorer's tool. :)

They are Ameriglo's. I have Ameriglos that I bought new still in package and mine are stamped with Trijicon. The Ameriglo night sites are stamped with Trijicon because Ameriglo sends the sites to Trijicon for the tritium tubes to be installed, then they are sent back to Ameriglo to be sold.

FYI......

AmeriGlo night sights are powered by Trijicon tritium tubes, and so marked. In the words of AmeriGlo's Rick Callihan, "We make the metal here in Georgia, then send it to Trijicon where the tritium is installed. Trijicon sends it back to us and we then distribute the finished product." Those who haven't seen tritium sights at night but are old enough to remember radium numbers on wrist watches can visualize approximately how three dot tritium night sights look in the dark.

curious as to that being Glock shipping Gen3s with Gen4 mags now, or a dealer switch out.

Nothing wrong with Gen4 mags in a gen3, just curious is all
I was told by Smyna that the Gen4 mags are the only new ones being produced now. Since the Gen3 guns are still being made it's possible this is happening now.

OP.....what is the test fire date on your gun?
