I called Buds tonight and spoke with a manager. He refused to provide me the first three letters of the serial number and said it was a weird request for people to want to know the serial number and that concerned him. I told him I wanted just the first three to date the pistol, not the entire serial number. I said I wanted an old stock one, not a new production.
I finally got an answer out of him and he said the first letter started with an "A" and that he wasn't even comfortable providing that. I told him I would refuse to buy from Bud's because they were not providing me the information I needed to help me decide if I wanted to buy it.
He said he was fine not selling to me.
I wonder if it starts with an "A"......if its a totally made in USA gun. I saw some pics of a Glock with a "USA" slide that had AAAA as the first four letters of the serial number
