That's all Glock will tell me when I gave them the 2 letter 4 number followed by PD serial number on newly purchased G22 40 police trade in. But here's the thing it has the "Frying Pan" Tennifer finish. I was not aware of Glock using that finish on Gen 4's. Any info by you guys with a whole lot more experience than me would be appreciated also the serial number is IMxxxxPD if anyone knows what agency that the IM is code for. Thanks you for any help you can give. As a side note I couldn't pass up a night sighted(still very bright) Gen 4 G22 still in the case with 3 mags and backstraps that were still in the plastic all for 275.00 have put 250 rounds through it not a hiccup as to be expected.

I believe I read somewhere some of the earliest Gen4s had the frying pan finish.
The gun is made in Austria and has MBS molded in front of the take down lever. Was just told that it was one of the first Gen 4s made in Austria with the new Nitrate finish that looks and feels alot like the old Tennifer finish.

Yes, the early Gen4 Glocks have the frying pan finish. I believe they did into late 2012 and early 2013.

The transition away from the Tenifer process (Tenifer wasn't a finish) to the Melonite process was completed in 2010, which was after the start of Gen 4 production. So there are some Gen 4 guns with the Tenifer process.

You got a sweet deal as IMPD went to Glock-17M pistols as they first came out. I own as new in case IMPD (Indianapolis Metropolitan) and ISP (Indiana State Police) Gen3 G-22's and I paid $400 for each of those from different officers in private sales.

Mid-2012 sounds about right for "the end" of the frying-pan" finish. That's 2 1/2 yrs into Gen4 production.
