Many gun owners started their fascination with firearms admiring law enforcement as a kid. Maybe they watched the Lone Ranger or police shows as a kid, and they ended up endlessly fascinated by the weapons used to stop the bad guys.
If that’s you, then maybe you’ve dreamed about about owning an FBI standard weapon, the Glock 17M. Well, now you can. Patrick Roberts writes,
Lipsey’s has answered the prayers of Glock collectors, the Glock 17M is no longer only for department purchases. Now anyone can add one of the unobtainable Glocks to their collection if you’re into that sort of thing.
While the Glock 17M is dang near the same as the Gen 5 Glock 17 that has been on the shelf, there are some slight differences beyond the roll mark but nothing earth-shattering.
Glock Talk user littletank posted photos of the Glock 17M he purchased, and it appears that the Lipsey’s 17M is correct with nDLC coated internals. The pistols will also feature the FBI spec mag release also used on the 19X, the extended mag release found on the Glock 34 Gen 5, and Ameriglo Agent night sights.
If you want to scoop one up of your own, MSRP runs $753. We did find street prices around $630, the same price as the standard Glock 17 Gen5 with Ameriglo sights.
Find more information and a dealer on the Lipsey’s website.

Now, if you already have a 9mm Glock, this may not be an extra pistol to buy for your collection. But if you’re looking to complete your collection or if you just want a Glock 9mm and don’t already have one, this may be one to take a look at.
