    Gen2 G17. Most likely March 1992.

    my Glock 19's dont make sense well one doesn't .. one is LY5** that one doesn't make sense to your date code thing.. the other is ads9**... when are these made exactly? non have proof marks.. it seems the LY*** GUN is older it has all black internals and the extractor claw looks real crud... also the firing pin is black and only has a tiny notch cut out for the safety .. any help would be great thanks ..

    If you have pistols that don't have the date code on the barrel, best method I've found for getting manufacturing date is to send an email to [email protected] with the model and serial number, and ask. Takes about a day.

    LYxx is from around Feb 1990 and ADSxxx is from around Sep 1992. Info derived based on the Serial Number thread.

    I’d guess late 2013/early 2014. I own a Gen4 19 ZRD-prefix that is June 2015.

    hi folks:

    my first glock bought via auction was the g17l. the guy (a gun store owner) said the previous owner had left it on a shelf in the back and it had a large mag well and extended controls. it has a slot in the top of the slide and a round hole on the bottom towards the front. the serial # is HFU00x and i can't seem to match it up anywhere except for a serial # database i found and i'm not sure if i put that in when i bought it on the original owner entered it.

    any info would be appreciated. i have the glock base it came in and might be able to provide any info that's on there. i added tru-glo sights, talon grip tape, and a 2-2.5lb trigger and it finally sold me on glocks to the point i picked up a g43x this week for an edc weapon to replace a smith revolver i've carried for 20 years now.

    [later note: i think i did add this serial # to stakhaus (?) database. there's an envelope with a fired cartridge which says '2005' and that's the date i entered.

    i found the glock case and it has a red label which says:

    Glock 17L // Adj // 3.5LB
    HFU00x // 2 // Hi-Cap

    thanks, /guy

    Just call Glock (770-432-1202), ask for the manufacture date and give them the serial number.
