The G17 is a semi-automatic pistol with one of the quietest non-silenced audible ranges of all Sidearms. The G17 Mag. features 17 rounds, second to only the PDW in terms of capacity for sidearms.
Although slightly weaker than the M1911, its much larger magazine size makes it one of the best sidearms for raiding cities and small towns. It also features a built in flashlight, making it useful for nighttime raids and fighting.
G17s can be found in deer stands and military spawns. The G17 shares the same ammunition as the standard M9 and the suppressed M9 SD variant, making it extremely versatile throughout Chernarus.
