Gear Review: PV17

In this video, PFC’s Brian Hartman and Sean Hendrickson review the new Progressive Vector 17 (PV17) created through a collaboration between PFC and Glock Vector Industries. For years the cadre at PFC have been trying to find the perfect gun for fighting. After looking everywhere else, we decided that it doesn’t exist in a stock firearm so we created it! Brian Hartman and Mike Barnhart sat down with the guys at Glock Vector and detailed the specifications for the gun that would become the PV17. This video details all the modifications that come standard with the PV17 and why it is better than any other stock firearm on the market, to include serrations that run the length of the slide, shaved back-strap, no finger grooves on the front strap, extended magazine release, and stippling on the entire grip, to name a few.
