Looks like Glock must have a significant inventory of G38 models for LE purchase. I received my Gen 3 G38 yesterday (GSSF 2011 purchase), and it was test fired back on 7/16/2007. Came as a surprise to me. Pistol came from Spokane, WA distributor. Couple of interesting features - 1. the trigger bar has the "hump" like the Gen 4 pistols, and 2. The front sight is the old stake-on type. Maybe the Gap's have always had that type of trigger bar, I don't know. I'm sure Danny would. One question - can you replace the stake-on front sight with a screw-on?? In other words will the hole in the slide take the screw-on sight? Other than the suprises mentioned above, I'm looking forward to shooting this gun. Got lots of reloading supplies for it so next year will shoot it in the Heavy Metal category in the GSSF shoots.
