tell me about the 1st gen glocks

I posted this is general glocking but didn't get a lot of traffic.
are the parts interchangeable with other generations?
any recall issues?
I've heard about pencil barrels, does mine have one?
My g17 came with an unsigned threaded aftermarket barrel, any way to tell who made it?

I recently picked one ( g17 ) it's in good shape but not a collector & it didn't come with a box or anything.
I put 100 rds through it today with no issues.
shoots great and I like the no finger grips. I dissembled the slide for cleaning and there wasn't much of anything on it. I did notice the extractor & the safety plunger didn't take effort to remove. I actually though it was broken because when I was trying to reinstall I didn't hear a click and all it took was very little finger pressure to get the extractor to fall out. that changed once I put the spring loaded bearing/spring, firing pin assembly, and back plate on.

There is a lot of information about the gen-1's just in this section of the forum alone. Some parts will interchange and some will not. If you give us the letter prefix of the serial number and the date code on the barrel, we can tell you how old it is. Or, you can call Glock and ask them. It only takes a few minutes for theM to look it up. As far as upgrades, Glock can tell you if it needs any.

thanks for the info. I called glock and it's not a pencil barrel and dated in 1988. The csr I spoke with said he had no idea if it was upgraded and they didn't keep computer records when people sent them in. this doesn't sound right to me but after going through 20 pages in the collectors club here i'm satisfied it's been upgraded
