Is someone else interested in taking over this thread? I will transfer the raw data to someone who will spend the time to update it everyday. I apologize, but I just don't have time to property keep this thread up. THIS IS A DATABASE OF OWNER SUPPLIED DATA. IF YOU DON'T FIND YOURS LISTED, LOOK IN YOUR PAPERWORK FOR THE LITTLE BROWN ENVELOPE CONTAINING TWO FIRED CASINGS. WHAT'S THE DATE ON THAT ENVELOPE? DON'T HAVE IT? THEN PLEASE CALL GLOCK AND ASK THEM. Please report any broken links to me so that I can fix them. I'd also like to update some of the pics below, showing the different generations / rails / slide serrations / rtf2 / etc. . Quick links to specific serial number ranges: <a href="#post4622166">AA-ZZ</a>, <a href="#post4622178">AAA-AZZ</a>, <a href="#post4622186">BAA-BZZ</a>, <a href="#post4622191">CAA-CZZ</a>, <a href="#post4622194">DAA-DZZ</a>, <a href="#post4622198">EAA-EZZ</a>, <a href="#post4622205">FAA-FZZ</a>, <a href="#post4622206">GAA-GZZ</a>, <a href="#post4622212">HAA-HZZ</a>, <a href="#post4622219">KAA-KZZ</a>, <a href="#post4622225">LAA-LZZ</a>, <a href="#post4622235">MAA-MZZ</a>, <a href="#post4626583">NAA-NZZ</a>, <a href="#post4636128">PAA-PZZ</a>, <a href="#post4651613">RAA-RZZ</a>. You may notice that this thread has changed owners. I think we all owe Dandapani a "thank you" for keeping up with this information for the last couple of years. His old thead has been locked. The purpose of this list is to be a resource for people who wonder what the “born-on” date of their Glock is, and to provide a historical record, which, if ever it is complete enough, can indicate some information about caliber trends, model popularity, production changes, etc. To participate in this list, all you need to do is the following: 1. Peruse the list (REVIEW THIS PAGE ONLY) to determine if your serial number prefix (either two-letter for the older models or three-letter for the newer ones) is on the list. If its information is complete and correct, please don’t post. 2. Once you’ve determined you have useful information, please POST your information in the following order and format: ABC - G-12 - January 2012 - 3rd Gen. - Other infor For example: AA - G-17 - October 1986 - 1st Gen. - has Austrian markings * Serial number Alpha-prefix (either two or three letters, depending on the age of your Glock). Please include ALL the letters at the beginning of the serial number. * Glock model in this format: G-17, G-17L, G-19, G-20, etc. If it’s a “C” model, add the C. * Born-on date, if known. If you’ve used Glock, Glockmeister, or another dating service, let us know its born-on date. If you have a newer Glock with the fired casings in an envelope, use the date on the envelope, as it’s always been accurate, compared to the dating services. If you live in a state where the dealer has to keep those/turn those i (MD, NY), ask him for the date, before he takes the envelope. * Generation. This can be confusing. Please look at the picture below: - 1st Generation has the smooth, rounded “pebble-grip”. - 2nd Generation has the “Grenade-style” checkering with NO fingergrooves (see picture). - 3rd Generation has BOTH fingergrooves AND accessory rail on the front dustcover. - If you have a subcompact (G-26, -27, -28, -29, -30, -33, -36) OR a “transition model” when Glock was putting fingergrooves but no accessory rail, then you have a 2.5 Generation. There is even a slight variation here, as some of the earliest G-26 & G-27s had smooth fingergrooves, without checkering in-between the grooves. Some people do not count the sub-compacts as 2.5 Gen since they came out after the 3rd Gen frames were already being made. Note: newer -29, -30 are now coming with rails. * Any special information you may know, such as if it is a commemorative, police-marked, has the new-style box, is affected by the frame recall, has Austrian proof marks, has the new loaded-chamber indicator extractor, has the 3rd frame pin (on newer G-17s), etc. 3. Please be brief and stick to that information which is needed. ---- Some special and commemorative serial numbers that don't fit the general pattern: XXXXXBCT - G-22 - 1992 - 2nd Gen. - Marked "Property of Bexar County, Texas", These are pistols issued to the Bexar County, Texas Sheriff's Department 05XXXDPD - G-22 Sept. 1995 - 2nd gen - Detroit PD - per Glock 06XXX DPD - G-22 - February 1998 - 2nd Gen. - Detroit PD unissued - Verified via Glock, Inc. 07xxxDPD - G-23 - February 2004 - 3rd Gen. - Detroit P, Verified via Glock, Inc. 2426xxFC - G-23C - Unknown - 3rd Gen. - Marked "Fulton County, Ga.
