A recent Gunbroker auction brought this to mind as well as previous discussions on actual production dates for the earliest Glock 17 pistols. While I believe it is possible for a serial number prefix to have more than one date code it may not be possible to have more than the letter prefix of the serial number available. For posterity I'd like to include all Glock models from around the world.

Given the enormous number of model variations and the fact the scope of this thread to to track serial numbers with dates codes, a model number isn't necessary but is encouraged.

The first letter is for the month:
E...Jan

The last two letters are for the year:

Example: ETY = E(Jan)T(8)Y(7)

And here I, and others, merely thought that GLOCK serial numbers just went in letter and number order from the beginning (at least usually).

Thus, AA000 to AA999, then AB000 to AB999, etc.

Later, of course, they changed to three letters, three numbers, and I guess now to four letters, three numbers.

For a while, guns bound for the US had US at the end, which was part of the serial number.

Some folks are paranoid for their serial number to be posted. They think that someone is going to take their number and call in the gun as stolen. Or (and this is my favorite) The ATF watches these sights like a hawk to see what guns you have. (Tinfoil hats are too tight) I have receipts and or BOS for mine. If I thought there was a valid reason for anybody to have my numbers. I would give it to them. truthfully, It's none of their damn business what my numbers are.

I know this one conflicts with the other ED guns known... But they must not have run the full 1,000 as gen 1s.

I have CP7** ATY G17.1, That would be OctOcto 1987 right? What does the hexagon mean?
The pentagon stamped on the barrel is to indicate the grade of steel used. There is also a pentagon with a dot in the center which is a higher grade of steel. I'll find my notes on this and post more. ATY would be December of 1987.

I found my gen 2 ED prefix on our favorite auction site and bought it because I saw that it had Austrian proofs... I didn't notice the serial number until after I got it home. It's number 268 so they either made these out of order or there are more gen 2s than 1s in the ED range. For my own curiosity, has anyone else seen a gen 2 17L with Austrian proofs?

I have a 17L Gen 2 with serial number ED 438. I was wondering when they switched from Gen 1 to Gen 2 on the 17Ls. I now know it was at least 171 before mine!
