    Does anyone have a picture of this protrusion from the slide? I recently got a hold of a 2nd gen Glock 19 serial AYU, and, I want to make sure that this slide does not have that protrusion.
    Please reference below:
    1993, G19 Upgrade

    Glock Model 19, 9mm Luger caliber, requires an upgrade for all pistols.

    These pistols have the potential for an UNINTENTIONAL DISCHARGE of a cartridge with the action open.

    The Glock model 19 pistol slide has a bottom protrusion, whose function is to push cartridges from the top of the magazine into the chamber. When the pistol is jammed in a double feed situation, the slide protrusion can come in contact with the primer of the jammed cartridge and cause UNINTENTIONAL DISCHARGE while the action is open

    Your 3-digit prefix (AYU) is newer than all the 2-digit prefixes. Looks to me as if you AYU was made a full year after the above announcement. You can call Glock to confirm, but I don't think your 3-digit prefix is in any way, a part of the update.

    As for the stripper rail that you reference, it is a part of all Glock pistols -- you need it. There was something wrong with the rails in question; it wasn't that it shouldn't have been there.

    I just got a Gen 2 Glock 2 with a serial number that dates it around July 1993. I actually called Glock and had them check if there were any upgrades to my handgun because I heard of the upgrade you are referring to. They told me that there were NO upgrades, and they could tell because my gun has the 3-letter prefix, which makes it a "newer" Gen 2 gun. Hope this helps. If nothing else, you can call Glock directly and ask them. They were quite helpful when I called in.

    Thanks Viper, seems we got G19's very close to each other. I picked up one yesterday that was part of an estate and after cleaning it up, it looks great!

    It is important to know the difference between a two letter serial number Glock (Ex. AA123) and a three letter serial number Glock (ex. AAA123).:whistling:

    My wife carries a DW 19. I just took it
    apart and I don't see any "Protrusion" that's any different
    than any of my other Glocks and took all 5 of them down and
    laid the slides side by side,
    If anyone has a pic of this protusion, I'd love to see it.
    Thanks,
    Dano :harley:

    Bullseye: Congrats on the new acquisition! Like I stated in my post above, I just got a Gen 2 Glock 19 as well. I love this gun!

    TJS: From your post, I'm guessing we have similar prefixes (if the Serial Number Thread is correct). That is awesome. Congrats on your new gun as well!

    Nice to know I have Gen 2 Glock 19 brethren :)
