    Not all slides have that information on them if they've been replaced or machined.

    Are you wondering about a stripped frame?

    The grips should also tell you what generation the pistol is! Unless that was worked on also.

    If the grip has finger grooves is a gen 3 or gen 4...

    If not its most likely a gen 2.. plus a dry chalkboard looking finish.
