    I was recently at a gunshow with my G22. The Glock specialty guy - exclusively works on Glocks and only carries Glock stuff - said that this was a "rare" Glock and was worth a lot of money. My BS detector instantly went off when I offered to sell it to him and he said he did not buy guns.

    So, Glock Talk members, is a G22 with 40 SW on the slide as rare as he said it is, or was my BS detector correct?:dunno:

    My G22 only reads ".40" on the slide. No SW. :whistling:

    I believe the older .40s had SW on the slide.I wouldn't consider an older .40 a collecter piece or anything.

    2nd Variation: The caliber mark was changed to .40 SW and was marked on the slide and top of the chamber. The lowest serial number I have observed is a G23 SL prefix, the marking ended between the CAM and CER range.

    Both my 23 and 27 have 40 SW on them, but they are from 1994-1996, dont have them handy for the serial numbers.

    My G27 says ".40 PLAX"....is that worth something?!:rofl:
     
  7. My G22, with ser # AXRXXX, says .40SW on the slide. My G23, with ser # KFFXXX, just says .40 on the slide.

    At some point, Glock changed it for some reason. I doubt it's particularly valuable.

    After Glock won the patent infringement suite against S&W in I think 1997, the SW was deleted from the slides.

    If I ever modify my slide, I'd like it to say "FO-TEE" rather than the .40

    I read somewhere that Gaston freaked that his guns said "S&W" on the slide and that was the reason for the removal...can't remember where, don't know if its true.

    Read some Glock book and it said that Gaston went to a show where S&W was unveiling the new .40 round. Apparently he got the specs, and jacked up everybody's ***** by releasing the 22 shortly before the S&W .40 came out. He had to add the SW or else it would have been patent infringement and Gaston would have been fined and imprisoned.

    Can't remember the title of the book
