    I did just what sfguard recommended in my 02 spring thread...

    I called the Glock phone number listed on their web site and asked to speak to "Tech Support." I told the Tech that I had just bought a G17 and it did not come with the "0 2" guide rod spring. He said that not all of them come with the spring and asked why I wanted an 02 spring. I said that I wanted the updated spring for my brand new Glock. He hesitated a bit, so I added that my gunsmith advised me not to shoot the 17 until I could get an 02 spring. He said, OK and then took my address. It came postal mail a few days later.

    Called today... He asked if I was having problems. I said I wasn't, but that the gun was used, and is my first Glock, and so I wanted to be preemptive and make sure that my experience was a good one. He said he'd ship me one.

    Asked about schwag, and he put me in touch with the mail room. Left a message... Not sure what will come of that, but I tried. :-)

    Glad everything worked out for you...

    Strange that you could buy a used 4th generation Glock 17 all ready. They are pretty new. Probably a good idea to get an 02 spring for it...

    I think I even got a good deal on it. $415. Guy said it was just a few months old and had ~250 rounds through it. Upon receiving it, I'd have to say that it looks barely touched.

    One question: what comes in the box? I got the gun, three mags, the fired casing and the extra backstraps. I thought I'd get the Glock speedloader and a brush. I don't really care about the latter two, but thought they'd be there.

    Yes, you should have gotten a nylon brush and an extension rod... also a Glock speed loader and several manuals.

    You can get a user's guide directly from Glock. Call them up and they'll send you one.

    As for the Glock speed loader... It works fine, but if I was going to buy a loader, I'd buy the UpLULA universal pistol magazine loader... I just got mine in the mail today! Here's the best deal I found:

    Here's a video of it in use:

    Indeed, I ordered an UpLULA yesterday. :-) I have other brushes, so I don't think I'll miss the nylon brush that should have been in the box (unless there's something special about it). Either way, thanks for the info!

    Sounds like you're good to go...

    Nothing special about the nylon brush that I know...

    You can get the brush and loading tool here direct from Glock.
