    I just acquired a glock 36 that had been sitting in it's box in a pawn shop for the past ten yrs. This barely used 36 functions perfectly so far. Out of curiosity I checked the serial and it appears this EUM serial glock was included in a recall due to a frame issue according to Glock.

    They offered to fix gun but would swap out frame for new. I would prefer to keep the gun with matching numbers if possible.

    Does anyone remember what the problem was specifically?

    Thanks!!

    I believe the rear frame rails were bent at too sharp of an angle (90°) instead of being radiused. The horizontal part of some rails would crack and break off. My G21 with an EVA serial number is just outside of the recall.
