A few years ago Glock came out with a limited edition "P80" model that was a retro copy of the first Glock pistol that won the Austrian military trials.

Now they've come out with a retro edition of the first Glock sold here in the US...the Gen 1 Classic Glock 17 model. There are a few things that aren't original...it has a captive recoil spring and it comes with a later generation of mags rather than the NML original mags that Americans hated anyway. It's a single pin frame design and looks just like the original.

I think they're pretty cool. I have the P80 so no real need for this one since I'm not a Glock collector. But I always liked the earlier Glock pistols better than the later ones. I hated the Gen 3 and 4 guns. The gen 5 is better...but I still like the originals the best.

They are. I got an email from them. That's how I found out. Maybe it's old news to some but it's the first I've heard of it.

I miss having a Sportsman's Warehouse. Wish they'd open one in Okie-land. My favorite of the big box stores.

They had one in OKC and it was closed , they weren't doing enough business with the competition from Academy and others in the area.

I like Sportsmans as well though

I like my Gen-1 Glocks. I take one of them out for a match every once and no body hs noticed yet.

I don't have a Gen 1 (aside from the P80 version...which is but isn't a Gen 1) but I have a Gen 2 17 and 19. I do have a 19X and a 43X...really like the 43. Hardly ever shoot the 19X.
