    Gen 2 for sure. Gen 1 G19s are very rare.

    The 'grenade' type checkering on the front and rear of the grip makes it a Gen2:

    Just so I don't have to start a new thread about it since we are on the subject on Glock Gens, it's clear to me what the difference between Gen1, Gen2, Gen3, and Gen4 are. Can someone enlighten me as to what some other terms I've seen, Gen2.5 and Gen3.5, refer to? And are there any other "incremental" generations?

    A small number of G20's and G21's (and their 'C' models) were made that had the 'new' finger groove grip, but had no mounting rails on the dust cover.

    After the coming of the Gen3 guns, those big frame Glocks were retroactively given the Gen 2.5 moniker right here on GlockTalk.

    Gen 2.5 could now be applied to G30's and G29's since Glock started making them with mounting rails too. Some folks want to call the small frame subcompact guns Gen 2.5 also, but I don't agree, they don't have rails simply because they don't have room for them....I just call them 'subcompacts'.

    Keep in mind that the use of generation numbers was pretty much started right here also. Glock did not use them until the coming of the Gen4's.

    Gen 3.5 is someone's imagination and/or their refusal to accept the RTF2 and SF guns as Gen3's.

    Nope!

    By posting it on here, you increased his chances of making a profit. This is where Gunbroker auctions tend to disappear from.

    Had hoped to see a rare item get a good home. Kinda lame for the current owner to label as a Gen 1. My bad on the false alarm all. :embarassed:

    Butch, I have what I have always called a Gen 2.5 G19. It has all the hallmarks of the Gen 3, rail & finger grooves, BUT it is a two pin. I can see the mould mark for the 3rd pin as well.

    I couldn't agree more. How can it be proper to label it a "mid generation" model because it's missing something that it never had...and still hasn't had?

    Now, on the other hand, I have a G26 with smooth finger grips, so I have been calling it a Generation 2.5.

    I couldn't bring myself to stipple any of them. I don't mind the pebble texture of the First Generation, I prefer the checkering of the Second and Third Gens, and I'm sure the Fourth Generation's polymids will grow on me as they wear in a little. Right now, they're a bit sharp.

    Naah....that was just a minor production change....why make two pin frames for 9mm guns when three pin frames work for all calibers?

    Two pin 9mm Glocks were made in Gen's 1, 2, and 3.
