You can tell the US made Glocks by the "U" in the product code. Here are some of the US made Glock product codes:

UG1750203 GLOCK 17 9MM GEN4 FIXED SIGHT 17RD BLACK
UG1950203 GLOCK 19 9MM GEN4 FIXED SIGHT 15RD BLACK
UG2250203 GLOCK 22 .40SW GEN4 FIXED SIGHT 15RD BLACK
UG2350203 GLOCK 23 .40SW GEN4 FIXED SIGHT 13RD BLACK

It is just a marketing favor made by Glock to Russians and the pistols are all made in Austria...

Best.

I went to a gun show recently and there were quite a few USA Glocks in G17, G23, G26 and G27.

Since you know about this, why didn't Glock mark all the pistols sold in the USA as, "Assembled in the USA"? Since I've been on GT, folks have insisted the USA Glocks are assembled in GA, from Austrian parts.

For the life of me I cannot find a USA made Gen 4 model 27. :(
Does anyone here know if any USA made Glocks have been torture tested and compared in reliability to the Austria ones?

Well, you me and Glock. And the lack of FTC swooping in, as they would if an "assembled in USA" item were sold as "Made in USA", should be quite telling.

Good luck on your search. It would be cool to have a made in the USA Glock, but just take yor time. I'm sure you will stumble upon one in time.

I just picked up a new G26 gen4. This gun was made in the USA, Georgia proof mark on the barrel next to a big US, Georgia proof mark on the slide with a big ole' USA stamped on it, and the polymer frame says "MADE IN USA" and has a Georgia stamp above the front end of the trigger guard. All 3 of the magazines say Austria on them. I did ask the shop where I bought it to seek out a USA made gun if possible.

The surprise is the additional backstraps. There are the two that we would expect with a gen4, but also included are two more with extended beavertails. I did not know that these additional beavertail grips were included. For me the gun fits best in the "small" configuration, but I will stick the extras in the safe so they can be included if I sell the gun in the future. For all I know these longer beavertail backstraps have always been included with G26's.

I would rather have a US made glock than an Austrian one. I don't think I will see a quality difference, but I would rather support American workers making guns.
