    Is there someplace where I can find out which generation I have? It has the finger groove frame but doesn't have the accessory rail.

    Generations are based on the G-17. You have a Gen 2.5

    At least, we know the OP did not have a Gen4 in 2002. :)

    The ideal G21 would be either a Gen 3 G21SF or a Gen 4 without the finger grooves. Maybe Glock will make a Gen 5 without the half moon magazine cut-out.

    I would like to wish this thread a belated happy 17th birthday.

    2 Generations of Glocks and over 20 new models have since been released.

    Amazingly, they all still look the same, lol.
