View Full Version : Gen 3 Frame Question

Just bought a complete Gen 3 compact frame to finish my G19 build. I noticed that when compared to my existing Gen 3 G23 my new frame lacks the patent pending stamp on the grip opposite the Glock logo. Is this normal? Does it mean anything? New frame is a TSK*** serial.

It probably means they got their patent.

Glock has started dropping the patent stamp since the patent ran out. They started doing this sometime last year. Nothing to worry about. TXPO

Ok, that makes even more sense.
