    I just received a replacement G27 from Glock about a week ago. I sent mine in to Glock and they determined it would cost more to fix than replace. They offered a refurbished one or a new one. I took the new one. However I just noticed the prefix is NCR. I looked up that serial number and it was produced March 2009. The test casings included with the gun are dated 10-16-12. So Glock had this gun in stock from March of 2009 but just test fired it in Oct 2012? Or did I get a refurbished gun when I was supposed to get a new one?

    I don't know, but I read that Glock puts the copper anti-seize in, to make sure the gun works after several years, in storage.

    Out of curiosity does it look new?

    Looks brand new. One mag has #9 follower, the other #8. There is a little bit of the copper grease on the slide but Glock put my night sites from the old gun on so I could see some of that getting rubbed off.

    I bet they sent you a refurbished Glock.

    You probably got a pretty good deal. Personally, I like the blacker finish on that era of guns, which are also known to have the reliability of a Glock.

    It's obvious that at least 1 mag follower is new. I don't think changing sights would mess up the copper grease. Some guns barely have any and others are loaded with that anti-seize. Probably nothing to worry about, if it works right.

    If there are no semi-circular marks, on the front of the barrel, it hasn't been shot appreciably.

    The one I sent in was from 2007. I've bought several of the newer ones and they are not as black. I've got a G29sf from June of 2011 that is definitely some sort of flat dark gray. This one is black as black can be.

    They charged my for a new one. The refurbished was $50 less. For $50 I'd rather have brand new. I guess I will have to call them tomorrow.

    I have noticed that the Glocks have come with at least 3 different colors, of finish. IMPO, the ones with a sort of slick, hard finish don't show scrapes as bad. I have seen different finishes being used within the same time frame, even. You couldn't be sure, which one you may end up with. The Tenifer is under the black/gray or whatever.

    I wouldn't mind either way. If it looks good, and its reliable Id be happy.

    If it looks new and still has the copper anti-sieze on it, coupled with the darker finish and potentially being from the "reliable" era, I wouldn't worry about it.

    What was wrong with the one you sent in?

    One of the reasons I got a Gen 2 is the reliability.

    Did your new gun have the same serial # as your old gun?

    Talked to glock today. They said new gun, old stock.

    Good enough for me.
