    I have a Glock 17 with Austrian marks on it and "AUSTRIA" on the left side. Do marks like NPV (with a little eagle-lookin bird) indicate where it was made? I saw on Glock's site that factories are located at Deutsch Wagram in Niederoesterreich and Ferlach down in Kaernten. You guys know how to tell where one of these pistols may have been made?

    Are they worth more and I'm guessing they are only gen 1?

    No, Gen1,2,3 & 4.

    Latin America is full of Glock's with Austrian proof marks.
    They import straight from Austria and they get the proof marks in all models even the .380 models.

    I have G26, G19, G17, G27, G21 all with the marks in different gens.

    Here is my G26.

    Just as passing interest: Two recent purchases have different proof marks. The new 19 has the Glock symbol and letters AT. I imagine that is for Austria. No eagles or NP as on my June 1986 Gen 1 Model 17. The new 42 born Nov 2016 has the Glock symbol, a Georgia state outline with P in the middle, and a US - this one proofed in the US, in Georgia at Smyrna I assume. Interesting discussion here. Thanks. g.b.

    I have a 19 Gen 3 with the marks that came into the country during the Obama scare. Got it a few months back with the copper grease still in the slide. Serial KVD***

    It's my favorite Glock that I have.

    I have a near twin of your 17! 1989 KC serial prefix that has never ever failed to do what it was intended to do. I've replaced it with a gifted to me, 1991 Gen 2....
    My original 17 has a "shiny" frame from handling, but no unusual wear, at all.
    I always carried it in a lined leather holster.
    It has been my limited experience, that the Austrian proofed Glock pistols, often have frame polymer that is smoothed and shines over time. Almost as if in the early days, there were different polymer formulations....
    VERY nice pistols! I will always have a fondness for Austrian Proofed, and would pay a reasonable premium, just to be different....
