    I'm a realatively new Glocker but from what I understand the US suffix means it was Austrian assembled and imported to US.
    Now, Im looking at my possible 2nd Glock purchase and the used G22 in question has BKDxxxxUS on lower frame silver tag and BKDxxxx only on slide and barrel. Also Smyrna georgia markings above right side grip on the frame? Is it possible someone came across both matching serial numbers and created a Frankenglock?
    Please help, I'm so confused !

    Only the serial number on the frame with have the "US". This is normal.

    So the US suffix and the frame molding with Smyrna dont contradict each other then?

    A simple answer is no. Your frame was made in Austria. Your entire pistol was made in Austria. It was made to be exported to the USA.

    Correct, the US suffix will not be listed on the barrel. As stated if it has the US suffix it was assembled in Austria and exported here. hth

    Thanks everyone,
    Guess I will purchase this G22 so my G19 will have a big brother in the safe.
