    So I have been wanting to buy a glock 17 and I found a good deal but I haven't bought it yet because the guy is saying its a gen 3 but I'm pretty sure its a gen 2. Can anyone tell which one it actually is?

    That is a Gen2. Buy it. The Gen2s are buttery smooth.

    Not sure of the prices in your area but thats kinda steep for around here, Those on avg go for 275 to 350 depending on the store/seller. I can get em new gen 4 for $500

    I would offer him $350 and tell him your being nice at that :p

    Got it for 350 plus 150 rounds, 3 mags, 1 33 round mag, and a laser I think it was a good deal over all

    I'm jumping in a little late since you already made your purchase. For what it's worth my gen.2 17 is my favorite, most accurate Glock I own. I think you made a good purchase. I went shooting earlier today, and dug my 17 out of my safe for the first time this year. I put 100 rounds through it, and it didn't skip a beat. All of my other Glocks are gen.3's. If for some reason I was only allowed to keep one Glock it would be my gen.2 17.
