Hello, and welcome. Nice shooter there! Congrats on a great weapon. Now order some Underwood 1800 or 200 grain ammo and hang on tight.

2 pins instead of three and no finger grooves equals a gen 2.
How likely do you think it is that a new owner will understand "2 pins instead of three"? And did you fail to notice that the OP's Gen2 G20 has a three-pin frame with Locking Block Pin?

The presence of the Locking Block Pin is NEVER an indication of Glock generation. Until Gen5-ish models, almost all Glock models except those in 9mm use the Locking Block Pin. FWIW while all other models were using the LBP, the 1995 Gen2.5 G26 was the first 9mm model with LBP, followed by Gen3 9mm models in 2002 and 2003 (four years after Gen3 9mm models without LBP were introduced). The LBP does not determine generation for any Glock model.

...how do you tell without it being stamped Gen2?
There wasn't a Gen1 G20. The initial G20 release coincided with Glock's broader Gen2 production. No finger grooves and no rail G20 = Gen2. The initial release of the G29, on the other hand, included finger grooves but no rail = Gen 2.5'ish.

Shooting 10mm out of a G20 is great but it is also amazing that there are so many conversion barrels for that gun. The G20 is one of the most versatile guns.

Thank you for the correction.

Great choice OP. That was easy. Now comes the hard part - ammo.

220 g. hard cast @ 1,200 fps
190 g. steel alloy mono bullet @ 1,200 fps
135 g. Nosler @ 1600 fps
180 g. Gold Dot....
155 g. Gold Dot...

Well, you get the idea, congratulation on owning a fantastic pistol, chambered in the most versatile caliber/round, the 10MM.
