    Welcome to the forum...Not real sure, possibly depending on overall condition, etc...I'm sure that someone will come along shortly with more knowledge on the subject...



    Glock softly and leave your big stick at home...

    Welcome to the forum Dan. Looks like you have a 1st Gen G17 with a Born on date of February '89. Unfortunately it doesn't have any higher value with the <500 serial number. From other forums I have read, if you have a special edition or maybe a number in the single or double digits then there may be a few people that would pay more but the majority won't. Sorry

    PS. The information I looked up on the gun show it should have Austrian Markings.

    If in excellent condition gen1 Glock 17 might be desirable for a Glock collector. How much? cant say.

    Other than much better grips and accessory rail, are there many action/structural differences between the 1989 Glock 17s and the 4th generation 17s?

    Thanks

    I would say that up to and including the Gen3 there were little changes. Some ergo changes, small spring changes, tac rail and grip design but nothing major. The biggest change was in the Gen4 Recoil Spring/Guide rod assembly and bigger/reversible mag release.
