I bought this G23 back in 96 from a good friend who never fired it.

I have taken her out only once and put maybe 100 rounds through it. I wasnt trying to keep it as a safe queen but got away from shooting for a long period.

Any info you guys have would be appreciated.
Also I just picked up a 21SF that fits me better, so planning on letting this one go. part of a deal a made to myself --- when new one comes an old one must go :crying::crying:

Here is some info about your Glock...

Manufacture Date: June 1996

2nd Gen. - Glock "Defense Set" (G23 & G27)

"The Glock Defense set is a special release ordered by a pair of Glock distributors in 1996. Each set consists of a G19 & G26 or a G23 & G27. There were 500 9mm sets with serial numbers AAA0000 - AAA0499 for the G19 and AAB0000 - AAB0499 for the G26 and 1500 .40 sets with serial numbers AAC0000 - AAC1499 for the G23 and AAD0000 - AAD1499 for the G27. Unlike most other Glocks sold in the United States they do not have "US' in the serial number. The compacts are marked "One of Two" on the slide and the subcompacts are marked "Two of Two". They were not very popular and dealers often split the sets and sold each gun separately."
