    I noticed that Glock is now making the 9mm models with 3 pins in the frame instead of 2. My 19 I just purchased is of the old style but 3rd. generation. Why did they do this?

    It was for economic reasons. Put three pins in all of the frames, instead of having only G17/G19 frames with two pins.
