    Any of you GT'ers know what year Glock began roll-marking the slides on the Forties "40" - from the previously marked "40S&W?" I have seen both the G22, and G27 with these markings in Sweeney's book. Also not sure if the G23 was similarly marked, as I have not seen a photo of one. Any answers on this would be appreciated. Already checked the Archives - if I missed that post, please let me know. Thanks

    I though Glocks were always like that

    They never put other brands on their guns

    No Smith & Wesson for the 40 cal
    No Automatic Colt Pistol for the 45 cal
    But GAP is there

    They did mark them that way for a very short time - so assume that these Glocks "may" have some slight collector value. Sweeney book a great reference, just re-checked; many photos of G22, G27 w/ 40 S&W on slide - did not see any G23's with the marking. Cheers

    My (1st ??) Gen G22 (02xxxDPD) is marked ".40 SW". I don't know the year, but it was a Detroit PD trade in.

    Thanks for the replies. Some questions may be answered on GlockFaq.com. They have sections on collector Glocks and various markings. Cheers

    Based on the SN survey, your gun is either a late 1994 or early 1995 model. My G22 starts with AAK and was made in early 1992 - it too is marked with the '.40SW' roll mark.
