2nd gen Glock pic thread

The thread about gen 2 glocks got me thinking. Whats your oldest? Post a picture and story about yours.

Mine is a 1991 manufactured 23. Absolutely no holster wear but has been shot extensively. I bought it used and whoever before me had the 6 part upgrade done. It came with original pre-ban mags and case. The breech face is well worn and I estimate has had at least 20K rounds through it. But it still locks up tight and shoots great. Still has the original extractor, but has had springs replaced. The extractor looks fine so I haven't changed it.

And there is no reason to change it.

If it works, don't fix it, it may not work then.

I expect you'll find the G23 to be much easier to shoot well, and nearly as easy to carry concealed (if you do that).

That's exactly my thinking. I only replaced the rsa, ejector, and slide lock spring.

The slide lock spring was the old style which I read were prone to breaking. The ejector had a couple chips in it so I put the updated ejector housing in as well.
