    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

    My gen 2 G22 ser BFT*** is marked .40 SW. I think I bought it about 91 or 92.

    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.

    An older Gen 2 that has really been carried:
