    Hello to all,

    Just arrived on Glock talk. Looking forward to being part of the forum. Recently purchased a Model 22. Only shot it twice but I like it the more I handle it. Another model probably on the radar screen.

    QUESTION: Serial number NVY887. Anyone have a source to identify the 22 manufacture date?

    Thanks again for being able to join.

    Did you buy it new? Is there a small envelope in the box that contains an empty cartridge case or two? What's the date on the envelope?

    And welcome to GlockTalk!

    What is the date on the envelope with the spent cases? That is the date used as date of manuf. Yours was in the last half of 2009.

    Yes I bought it new and I am 300 miles from the package. I can check it when I get home. Was just wondering if there was a serial number link. Thanks for replying.

    Appears mine is not posted yet. I'll check the fired cartridge package.

    Really like this so far. Three mags, RTF.

    Anyone know if the recoil spring in the Gen 4 will retrofit to the Gen 3?
