    under the barrel? I just got a new 26 Gen 4 and the flat part under the barrel(locking block?) has a dot type bar-code. It's also on the mag loader just under the Glock logo. I wasn't able to get a good enough picture.

    New tracking system for gun registry.


    Nah, I have no idea. Probably some internal measure for quality control or to match parts to frame in assembly.

    I call conspiracy. Just kidding. Another thing, there's a oblong portion on the right side of the dust cover with some letters in it. Any clue on that one? Cant remember the letters.

    I'm not aware of a bar code under the locking block, however there is a bar code under the trigger housing that has all the information on the pistol ready to be scanned. It looks like a half inch square etching in the plastic.

    Glock was advised to do this by the ATF.

    (I worked for Glock, so this isn't internet hype)

    I'll try to get a pic tonight. It may not be any good, though.

    I got the barcode under the barrel on my 21sf.

    I also see the small square imprint under the trigger guard but it's blank.

    If you scan it with your iPhone it will take you to a cool website.

    Geez, glad the Glock's is hidden.



    I've got that too. I just figured it had to do with the molding process or something.

    I woke up this morning with a tattoo on my forehead that looked like the one described above. All of a sudden I dont think Obama has seriously F'd up our country and wants to take all out guns.

    I was thinking the same thing, I sure hope that's photo-shopped.
