New to me Gen 2 Glock 19

Hi, yesterday I was spending some time in my local gun shop when an old man came to sell a couple of his guns. Among them he had a nice Glock 19. Upon closer inspection I noted it was probably a Gen 2, which based on its condition, was definitely a safe queen. After talking with him for a while, I got the gun for $300 (gun only, no box, documents or mags). One cool thing is that the gun has the original Glock adjustable sights (that ones that hang off the slide).

I took it to the range and she performed flawlessly with my Glock 17 mags. Some fellow gun enthusiast that I met on the range told me to not shoot it as it could go up in value if left in the current conditions. I however, don’t think that would happen, and even if it does, I’m not a collector… be it guns, sports cars or guitars, I like to use them as they were intended to be used.

Based on the BBK prefix (and the absence of finger grooves on the frame), I know is a Gen 2, but is there anything else I can learn from the serial number (date of production, if I need to upgrade the striking pin)?

Thanks for your help!

Change nothing. Load, shoot, clean, repeat.

Good catch Joe, you dont say where your from so getting standard capacity mags (15 rds) may or may not be an option, however, your new G-19 is a keeper. You'll be very happy you got it. I carry a CUG prefix G-23, would not part with it and a BSA prefix G-27.

Thanks for the info, I'm from Puerto Rico (Island in the Caribbean, US territory), and yes, I can legally purchase std-cap mags here. Getting a gun permit is tough though... CCW is tough and expensive!

Good to know that no parts need to be changed... I'm only planning on putting some night sights and shoot the crap out of her!
