This ? for the thousandth time I'll bet.

Hey guys,(oops, and Gals), due to economics, I had to give up my 1st Gen Glock22 a couple of years ago. Time went on and I was able to get myself in a little better shape and came across an unbeatable deal on a S&W M&P 45 from a buddy. Really liked that gun but always missed my Glock. Well back in December some bastard decided that while my wife and I went to work he would kick in my basement window and help hisself to our stuff. That included the M&P and my Bersa. I immeadiately went to the Credit Union and the next day I had a 3rd Gen Glock30 SF and a Glock 21 which I believe is a 3rd Gen. The dealer said the previous owner had a trigger job, put on a Davison P1 rear sight and added a red Fiber optic front sight and had a barrel upgrade. That front sight is a godsend for these tired 62 year old eyes. Anyway, I have been trying to find out when this gun was originally made. There is a list on this and other siites but I can't find my Serial #. Can anyone at least tell me what Generation it is or direct me to where I can find out for sure when it was born? I already tried Glock itself and have never heard back from them. When I bought my G22 used, there was a site which I thought was this one where they answered me with the info in less than 2 days. Maybe I was wrong about that. Anyway, Any help would be appreciated. The Serial No. is PVB0**. By the way, paid $1150.00 for both and the G30 was brand new in the box. I thought that was a great deal. (I think the dealer felt bad for me for getting robbed.) And the insurance more than paid me back so I only had the Credit Union loan less than 3 weeks before I paid it off!!

If unaltered,
No finger grooves and no light rail= Gen 2

Finger grooves and no light rail= Gen 2.5 (not sure if they made these.

Finger grooves and light rail with no SF markings= Gen 3

Finger grooves and light rail WITH SF markings= Gen 3 SF

Finger grooves, light rail, reversible mag release and extra back straps= Gen 4

Also, your G22 was probably a Gen 2. I don't think they ever made a Gen 1 G22.

http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/show....php?t=1445829 might be a thread to look into for your manufacture date.

The sights are no doubt fine (the fiber optic front does make it easy to see!), but I would have to be very suspect of the 'trigger job'....lots of people mess up Glock triggers by the bubba+Dremel method.

If you aren't experienced enough to judge for yourself, I'd encourage getting it checked by someone who has a clue....like a factory armorer at a GSSF match. If it's not right, he can fix it on the spot, and free.

If you can post or attach a picture of the G21's right side, we can easily tell you what generation it is.

These were made as I had one and the Marshal Co. Sheriff's Office (Alabama) Issued these to deputies who chose to carry it.

These were Glock 21s BTW, Not G-22s

They were only imported in models 20, 20C, 21, 21C, and, (after they started making them with mounting rails) 29, & 30. Mine is a 21C:

Even if it is messed with to much it is really cheap to put back to stock.

Wow, thanks for the response, Guys. Finger grooves and light rail. No SF designation and the trigger job to smooth it out was done by a professional "smith. Thanx to all!!
