I just bought a new Gen 4 19 but I noticed the slide looks more like a Gen 1. IOW the slide is very dull to the eye and by touch. What gives?

Thanks in advance for the answers.

Difference in manufacturing days and or batches. If this bothers you I recommend you visit a VERY large gun shop the next time you intend to purchase. This way you will be able to examine and actually feel a multitude of pistols before actually plunking down the deniro!

I bought it from the largest gun retailer in FL. I simply didn't notice as I'm sure Glock will fix any issues.

I took it to the club and shot 200 rounds and had 2 FTE in the first 45 rounds. It's going back to Glock A.S.A.P. and hopefully they will take care of it. I've never owned a Glock that wasn't 100% right out of the box. I''m not worried but it's aggravating.
