Prices have stayed pretty much the same...unlike ammo.

I wonder what that pistol would go for now? Unfired in mint condition.

Glock has done a fine job of holding the costs down.

I have a 1st gen. G17. I perfer the grip on it over the 2nd and 3rd gen grip. Slightly rough but slick, feels great. I took a pic. of it with a new 3rd gen slide on it just to see how it would look.

Hey Butch, that sure looks like a G17 frame cut down at the mag well to shorten it? What do you think? Notice the 1/2" smooth edge around the G17 frame at the bottom. The 19 is cut off on an angle???

Ahh, just read the card in the case. It's a crying shame Glockd didn't make a load of the 1st gen 19's, and have done it right to make the frame look completely like the 17's frame (like the next 2 gens of Glocks). I think it's a custom job maybe on a 17 frame.

What is the serial number range for 1st/2nd generation G19s? My 19 has been with me for a LONG time. I bought it new around 1990 (I believe).

There are only two serial number prefix's associated with first generation Glocks that I'm aware of, 'AN' and 'DN'.

'AN' was used on the first sample G17's that were imported for submission tot the BATF, and I would tend to guess the same would be true for the G19.

'DN' was also used on the first of the second generation G19's, which tends to confirm that there aren't very many first generation G19's at all.

What's the serial number prefix on yours? And the date code on the barrel (if it has one)?

TreeTrooper

The prefix is ATM. It is a 2nd generation 19 (did a little research).

It was probably made late in 1993, but that prefix has not been entered in our serial number project yet.

You should call Glock to ask when it was made/imported and post it to the project! :)

Years ago when I first went to Glock armorers school, the instructor gave anyone with the "E" numbers an upgrade kit so I replaced the black parts. I just found them in a plastic bag a few weeks ago.

Picked up a March 1989 issue of Petersen's Handguns at a flea market. Front cover is a G19 photo (Special Report, the controversial Glocks, sidearms for the 21st century.) Artical is about the 3 glock models,G17, G17L, and G19. I can't post photos, but will pass this magazine on to anyone who wants it. Dan

I bought this in NYC in 1987 after they lifted the "ban" on them. I had a custom extended mag release made because there were no aftermarket partts back then. I also had it ported back then (wrongfully) and recently put ghost ring sights on.

According to the book The Complete Glock Reference Guide the model 19 was introduced in 1988. In 1989 they started using a 2nd generation frame.

I have never seen a glock 19 that as the rounded appearance and so little roughness around the front and back of the backstrap as the 1st gen model 17.

I think the first gen model 19's are extremely rare.

Not sure what generation glock I have but the serial number is AXX --- US on the frame. Is this an early g1 or g2? Its surely not a g3 due to straight grips. I have a G3 for a duty gun at work... lol.. so that much I know!.

thanks.

The Generations are pretty easy to tell, the Gen 1 has a smooth grip. A first generation Glock will have a "pebble" type finsh on the grip frame area, a second generation has checkering on the front/backstrap/front of trigger guard, third generation got the finger grooves. Here is a thread with a wealth of information

My G19 has a WT prefix.....born in 1991. Was originally purchased from glock and used as my primary duty carry back in the day on patrol along the southwest border. Never failed me....still have original box and accessories. Slide has some holster wear and and handle some scratches but I think it adds character to my baby...

That was the manufacturer's suggested retail price, or MSRP. In 1996 is was about $700.00 when I bought my brand new Gen2 G19 for $369.95.
