Our Assessment: This Glock 17 L is one of the rarer versions of the venerable Austrian pistol, with unconfirmed information putting the number available hovering around 2,000. However, of this particular pistol imported by Century Arms International in 2005, there are only 255 available domestically. Previously employed by Romania’s Brigada Antiterorista (the Romanian Counter Terrorisim Brigade), this pistol almost certainly saw use as a sidearm in that organization’s efforts to thwart terrorist activity in Romania. Given its use and age, it has few visible marks, and is in Fine-plus overall condition—a worthy and desirable addition to the discerning bidder’s Glock collection. Good luck!
