  1. Hello,
    Came across this forum from facebook, sign up for the giveaway and joined the forum. Been a member for 3 weeks now and thought i should say Hi.

    So, i'm the proud of owner of so far 4 glock pistols, i also have a Mech-Tech carbine conversion in 9MM with a G17 GEN 3 frame and a KJW G23 airsoft pistol. Yes i know its not a firearm. :D

    My future plans are to get more Glocks plus another carbine conversion and a Glock frame to put on it. i havent desided if i want to go with a 40 caliber or 357 Sig or even a 45.

    I do have to admit that when i first bought my Glock 17 back in 88 at some point i hated it because for some reason i coughtn't shoot it worth a damn. i shouldn't say i hated it, I just hated i coughtn't shoot it.

    Anyway enough rambling. i got over it and still own it plus 3 more Glock pistols and I LOVE them and can shoot them really well.

    G17 GEN 1 (date coded Feb 88), G27 and G23 (bought used) Gen 3's and last year a G17 Gen 4. Really wanted but couldn't afford the 25th anniversery.

    OK, I'm done.

    P.S. Also i have a Glock GTL22 combo laser/light.
    Also forgot to mention that my CCW is my G27 and a Kel-Tec PF9. The G23 w/GTL22 sits on my night stand for home defense.

    Hey my signature now shows up, wasn't here on my first post.

    ok here ya go.
    At the top is my original G17 Gen 1 Seriel # date of Feb.88 (not sure when i bought it, either 88 or 89 but it was new),
    Row #2:then theres my G23 w/GTL22, G27 both Gen3, G17 Gen 4
    Row #3 Mech Tech CCU with G17 Gen 3 Frame in 9mm

    nice. I see you like the color black ;)
  6. Also want to mention that all these glock are stock except there is a KKM barrel in my G17 Gen 4 and i do have KKM barrels for both my G23 and G27 i use for reloads.

    Do not want the Glock KaBoo syndrome!

    I'm pretty sure this has to do primarly with the 40 cal. because before i ever heard of this i ran 1,000 rounds of factory reloads with cast bullets through my G17 Gen 1 way before i ever heard of this.

    Got a deal from the sportsmans guide along time ago. never had a problem.

    I did retire my G17 Gen 1 after i bought my Gen 4 last year.

    May not be worth awhole lot but i didn't want to shoot it any more, have all original box and so forth just don't have the manual. Unfortunatly. :(
  7. LOL!!

    Well so far, Yes!

    However i do want to do some kind of camo on the carbine and at some point I want to do something with duracoat or something to one of my current glocks or a future purchase.

    Like some camo and some mods.

    Welcome, and I love the 9mm carbine conversion! That is pretty sick. I imagine the .357 sig would work well with that also.
  10. Thanks everyone!

    jimmyalbrecht: I do agree that i think the .357 sig would make a good carbine round. It might sound dumb but i think with the longer barrel, a bullet close to the same size as the 9mm but with alittle extra of the right powder (because of the steeped down 40 casing) would make a good combination. Atleast thats what i'm thinking/
    Plus i could drop a .357 sig barrel in my G23 or the G27 and shoot both kinds of ammo out of either pistol.
