I believe KS ABC requested a smaller gun for their detectives and Glock in order to have a chance at winning the contract modified the 17 mold to accommodate for the 19. I’m sure others could add more info/clarify.Thank you for following through.
I know several of us would love to know the back story on it.
At first glance it does look cut (from a side view) but based on the pictures posted in other threads (looking up at the grip) it definitely looks molded. Would be curious to see 2 side by side to see if the “cuts” look equal on all of them, ie if they used the same mold for all or if there was any variation.As long as cutting down of the frame is not mentioned versus just shortening of the mold for the grip.:exercise:
To my knowledge, only one that was previously "unknown" to the collector community has come up this year. That was the fine gent who purchased his years back as an inexpensive used gun for protection. The thread on his was put up a few months ago.Thank you for following through.

Something like (3) just this year have come up for viewing. That has to be significant. Is there more?
If you are into Glock collecting that is Gen 1 19 is the crown jewel of doing so.
It’s massive having one in your possession.
I had to fix your images.

Absolutely, happy to help as I can.Thank you Ron for your clarification.
I see KS ABC 11 in your thread. So whoever owned that one recently sold it.
Since fishboy has not offered where he acquired his or what number it is I assumed it was one not known on your list.
At any rate 3 still have changed hands this year unless fishboy had 11 and sold it recently.
Most welcome. I'm always glad to add new info as it becomes available. I'm glad that you find it helpful.Thanks for the clarification 17L1.
So actually 2 have changed hands this year. Fishboy and the one I bought. With the one I bought being the newest unknown example.
I get it that members want to be low key on their examples.
It’s great that you are maintaining a running list GH. Thanks.
