    CRAFM did the impossible!

    I have owned a Glock for a while and when the new Gen 5 G17s came out, I said meh. But when I learned about the G17 Gen 5 MOS FS, I knew I needed it. I sold my gen 4 and headed straight to my local GTA dealer. I was ready to purchase one with cash in card. But when I got there, I noticed it had a cut out (cue the infomercial in my head showing me how my pinky would get chopped up by it (but it actually did when I shot a friend's)). Any way, that was a deal breaker. Went to the next store, same deal. After going to every GTA dealer I could think of and getting mixed messages like "they never made them without a cut out" (when I just saw one on EE and was beaten to the punch), I couldn't find this 'great white buffalo' Glock.

    I posted on CGN and people confirmed that I wasn't crazy - these elusive Glocks were 1st run, Made in Austria, pistols and they didn't have the cut out. I emailed and called EVERY SINGLE GUN SHOP in CANADA that had Glocks posted on their sites. No one had one without a cut out (again receiving comments like "they never made them")....until John at CRAFM emailed me back a couple of days later saying he might have found one. I was back and forth asking to confirm with photos of this unicorn, and then he emailed me the magical words..."confirmed". I paid for it but was still skeptical... I just got it today and I am happy to tell you that both miracles and unicorns do exist! Love this Glock!

    Thank you so much John and the crew at CRAFM for making me giggle again! Can't wait to go give it a run. You are the BEST!!

    I'm not clear on what or where the 'cutout' is.

    Nice to see a retailer go the extra mile for a customer ...
