Anyone know how to decode a Glock SN to find when it was produced?

Pretty sure they used it as a door stop
That’s very cool to have one that you know was swat. This one looks to have been fired little. Barely has any holster wear.

The difference between the Gen 1 and 2 Glock 17’s is basically the addition of the serrations or whatever you want to call them on the mag well and some internal parts upgrades. The Gen 1 guns had what they called “black parts” and a non captured recoil spring that were part of a 6 part safety upgrade. Most Gen 1 guns you see will have had the upgrade by Glock. Supposedly very early Gen 2 guns had black parts as well but I’ve never seen one.

They also changed the magazine design in there somewhere from the U notch magazine to what you see today with the more square notch.

There are little changes throughout the years but those are the basic ones between Gen 1 and 2. The Gen 1 Glock 19 is the one that had the mag well sawed in half from a model 17. Those are rarer than hens teeth and cost about as much as a new truck right now.

Call Glock and they will tell you the date it was imported if Austrian manufactured. I would imagine if it was US built they would have the date of manufacture.

My Gen 3 2pin 19 Fed Agency stamped I picked up from Atlantic a while back was imported on 12/30/1999.

Do early G26 Glocks have any collector interest? I know they don't fit neatly within the Glock "generations"

From a mechanical standpoint, is there really no additional value to Gen 1's / 2's? I see them going for high prices / being very desirable but I've never seen any 'real' reason beyond 'I want to collect an early gen Glock.' Just curious if there's any reason beyond the collector's value.

Just for the collector value. And they go for crazy money depending on what they are. Might not make sense but remember an 1897 Winchester shotgun is only worth a little bit of money.... until there is a US stamp and a handguard on it. But again it’s still just an 1897 Winchester......

High values for Gen 1s. Over the counter Gen 2s are pretty normally priced I think. I haven’t looked in a few years. Has something changed?

A good condition Gen 2 model 17 or 19 in the matching Tupperware container with correct mags and manual can bring north of 1K easy right now.
