I sent an email inquiry to Glock with the identifying info to http://us.glock.com/customer-service/glock-warranty. I asked for the mfg date and what generation it was. Don’t remember how long it took, but don’t believe it was too long. There are probably easier ways to this, but I figured I would go directly to the source. Hope this helps.

From the GLOCK serial thread, your G19 gen3 goes back to around May/Jun 1998.

G19 pistols with with CSP###US serial numbers were *imported* in May 1998. The "US" at the end is part of the complete serial number.

The envelope with spent case was only supplied diring the years that some states required the dealer to submit it to the state when a pistol was sold. The last state (MD) stopped that a couple of years ago, so that case is no longer included. It would not have been provided in May 1998 either.

G26. Serial No. ZALxxx. Gen and manufacture date will be deeply appreciated.
ZAL### is too recent to be in most serial number listings except Glock's. I'd guess at import less than three years ago. Call the customer service number 770-432-1202. They will happily tell you the import date.

WRT generation, if it has no backstraps it is Gen3. If it has backstraps, it's Gen4.
