Hard to tell in this crappy iPhone photo, but mine has the "dot" also. Like someone else said, it must be on the Austrian made ones.

It's my belief the wear on the barrel is not from tight tolerances but because the finish is basically a "paint" which is not very impact resistant.

Interesting... I remember people commenting on the “dot” when they first came out. I just looked, my blue label USA 26 gen 5 has no dot.
Went into my local gun shop and picked up a 26 gen 5 , One thing I did noticed and again it’s no big deal, it just something I caught with my eyes ,after looking at a few 26 gens 5’s some had 26 gen.5 and a few others had only 26 gen 5 on the slide. Found that kind of strange lol.. anybody have insight on that? Just a dot difference lol
I just purchased my 26 gen5 and it had the “dot” I thought the early runs only had it.. hmmmm
Ahem...The "dot" is a period. It is actually proper English to place a period after an abbreviation. cough, cough :whistling:

I was determined that I was going to get the g5 26, until time to pay up came.
The new 26 feels great and the trigger is real nice but I decided to hold a g5 19, just to see.
I have not liked any 19 previous but I really like this one so I went with it instead and I am happy.
But those 26s..maybe someday.

Well, since you mention it, "proper" has a subtle difference in the abbreviation and period case, depending on whether you are talking about British or American written English. As it turns out in this particular case where the abbreviation is not with the first and last letter of the abbreviated word, the period would be correct in either British or American, but if it was an abbreviation of say, Doctor (Dr) or Mister (Mr) only the American version gets the period.

Just sayin'. ;)
