Confirm my suspicions Gen 2 19c

I was browsing gunbroker and came across this auction. The guy claims it's a factory 19c, produced in 91, though it isn't marked C on the slide. I believe it to be an aftermarket job done by a company such a mag-na-port. I nearly bid on it thinking it's a unicorn, and I may still, but I believe it to not be rare at all. Therefore I'm calling the experts on Glocktalk!

My 2nd Gen 1989 and my first gen G17L 1988 purchases also came with the sticker on the front, like those in the picture, that was an advertising sticker showing the glock 17 won that award for 1987. All those sticker say glock 17 as I remember it, no matter what was the gun. some early G22 and 23's boxes may have had that sticker too.
both stickers eventually fell off my box lids.

If I remember correctly, early compensated models didn't have the "C" on the slide.

It's not a "Highly sought after" pistol, and the buy it now of $800 is crazy.

The TP letters, place the G-19, 2 gen, at 5/1/1991 for its "born on date".

The Glock 17C came out around 1996.

Everything that I've read says the C models didn't roll out until 96-97, right before the gen 3's were released. On top of that, the cuts in the slide don't look like every other gen 2 C model that I've looked at, which leads me to believe that it's just a standard 19 that has been sent off to somewhere to have the machine work done.

I believe the G19 on gunbroker is a Magna Port. The shape of the cut out in the slide is what Magna port uses.
