    I read the great thread http://glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1287557&highlight=serial+numbers on serial numbers and unable to follow the last two letters representing the year. If my last two letters are UR, how does that relate to the following table on year?


    The 3 letters represent the barrel test fire date code:

    The first letter is for the month:
    E...Jan
    L...Feb
    N...Mar
    B...Apr
    S...May
    Z...Jun
    G...Jul
    P...Aug
    I...Sep
    C...Oct
    V...Nov
    A...Dec

    The last two letters are for the year:
    O...0
    W...1
    K...2
    R...3
    F...4
    M...5
    H...6
    Y...7
    T...8
    D...9

    That's for Proof Marked Glocks, there will be a three-letter code on the barrel which is different from the serial number. Only Proof Marked Glocks have that three-letter code on the barrel.

    Scroll down further in that thread and you'll see Glock serial number prefixes going alphabetically. They have test-fire dates for each. Not every serial number prefix is in the list, just find the one that's closest to yours and that'll give you an approximate test-fire date for yours.

    You can call Glock and get the exact test-fire date and import date of your Glock, per the serial number. They cannot tell you when the gun was made.

    I believe my G23 is a 2nd gen gun. It has what looks like a little house after the serial # on the barrel. is that a proof mark. CFXxxx.

    Only the older Glock barrel's had these codes. Don't confuse it with your serial number.

    This decoder only works for barrel proof markings if yours has it. Mine does not. But there is a list somewhere that will give you a idea. I will find the link

    I got mine in 1992 and it only has 9x19 on the barrel. How old are you talking about?

    It introduced me to the Gina Carano gif so, IMO, it deserves a pass.

    I'm new in here. Is that because mine is the oldest? or was it a slam on the question?

    Okay... is there another weekly award for not reading the whole thread before posting? :supergrin::supergrin:

    He meant that you're responding to a post from 4 years ago.
