    If so, does anyone have an idea of date range or serial range?

    If not, I guess that I'd be looking for a triple letter serial number range for a late model Gen 2 G17, if I'm reading the SN project thread correctly. I want one produced after the "6 part upgrade" happened.

    Other than gunbroker any good places to look?


  2. Werent they supposed to have 3 pins already?

    No. The locking Block (3rd) pin was added to Gen3 9mm frames around mid 2002. The Gen3 frame was introduced in 1998.

    All 40's have 3 pins.
