    Evening to you all, just another FNG saying Howdy. Fairly new to AS, so be gentle when I ask ridiculous questions that make you cringe...‍♂️

    I was hoping you would be one to reply, been running a VFC G17 Gen 5, and from my understanding they can be problematic in time due to QC. What would be a replacement you would suggest, that is available? Perhaps Glock Style, perhaps uses G17 mags? Thanks in advance!

    Full Size?

    TM G17 Gen 4

    Does it have to look like a Glock? If not AAP01 or WE Galaxy

    Correct, Full Size preferred. How would the KP13 you had in the $200 pistol tread fair in this request? For aome context I have been using this as a training aid, hence needing to fit a Trex & Safariland Glock 17 Holster.

    Unless you have a G18C, I would take a pass.

    Plus these early models are fatter than the RS counter parts.

    A G17 G4 that is probably the best 1:1 near a Gen 5 replica.

    Perfect, thanks for that explanation as I have no use for FAuto, so dont own one. Now finding a TM G17, which I have time since this VFC is still running… hope I did not jinx myself!‍♂️

    Nice! I assume with the TM my VFC Mags will be useless? An have to upgrade to the TM mags?

    Yep, Guges is helpful, if somewhat abrasive. :)
