New Owner
Hey everbody,

I recently purchased a Glock from a friend of mine and am new to the world of Glock. I took it to my local gun shop and got some interesting looks and responses from the owners and gunsmith's there. I have called Smyrna and they tell me that according to the Serial number that I read off that it is a Gen 3 G17. Here is a photo of it. Let me know what ya'll think.

Gen2 for sure. Interesting engraving on the frame handle.

Are you positive? Glock in Smyrna said the serial came back as a Gen 3.

JR 10-20-2011 19:37

Gen2 for sure. I dont care what they say!
Look at the trigger pin...... you see a locking block pin? Nada!
Look at the handle...... you see finger grips? Nada!
Look at the dust cover.... you see a rail? Nada!

The guys at Glock Inc are real experts. They know this stuff inside & out. Something is wrong, somewhere, somehow information got crossed. You know how it is.
FYI: The 3 things I listed above are a basic failsafe for identification.

Well they went off of the serial that I read to them. now I'm more worried that I picked up a parts gun.

EDIT: just went to the following link and found out that it is in fact a Gen2 made in June of 89....this thing is almost as old as I am lol
