    Really nice shape, box and documents. Old tupperware box. I'd like to get the date, tried the serial number search without luck. It's XX-34X US. The first two letters are actually "XX". On slide and barrel, all match.

    Been awhile since I had an older Glock, anything from this era require "upgrades" or anything?

    I'm guessing 93-94 ish...?

    Thanks.

    Made about November ’91. Unless it has already been done it should need the firing pin / safety upgrade. I would also replace the slide lock spring, the early ones were thinned down in the middle and they break at that thin area, unless you want to keep it original for collecting purposes.

    Hm. Called Glock, they said at that serial number, it should already have the new parts. All the internals, except the connector, are silver, so, I guess I'm good. Did drop in a new recoil spring assembly, it was a little slow to close when I tested it.

    If internals are black you need to upgrade the new parts are silver

    XX does have the upgraded parts but you probably have the old style thin slide lock spring which should be replaced with the new style. My ANL (Sept 1993) Gen 2 19 did. Very easy change out.
