Gen 2 G17 oddity

I have noticed this oddity on my Gen 2 G17 . It is a raised piece on the forward portion of the left side of the trigger guard. It is textured like the grip is textured. Is this normal because I have never noticed it . I see it on other G17's on google.com but mine is really pronounced.
Is this the area of the mold where the plastic is injected or poured ? It has a prefix of AGA which shows it made in 1992 .

That's the safety, if you keep your finger on it instead of the trigger the gun won't fire

The one on mine is flat, that looks a little odd as it sticks out a lot more, but I don't think it should be an issue.

That's actually the pin that keeps the trigger guard in place. You had better hammer it back into place before the frame falls apart and you get a KB.

This is from the only picture I have of my Gen 2 G17 that I sold six years ago (man I wish I had that one back!). Mine apparently had a similar mark, although not quite as pronounced. Maybe from different or newer moulding? Mine was serial TK2xx.

Good question. I suppose that's possible, but I can't say.

I can tell you that soon after the G19's arrived, they started stamping model numbers in that spot. For whatever the reason, they didn't do it for very long, I expect they found it impractical and/or time consuming.

I was able to look my G17 up and it is the AGA prefix which shows it to be made in 1992.
