    Found this through google....


    From 1982 to 1991 G17s were assembled & test fired in Austria. (Later pistols were assembled and test fired at Glock Inc. in Smyrna, GA.) These early production pistols are marked with an eagle and "NPv". The markings are proof marks and inspectors marks as required on Austrian pistols.

    The NPv mark means "Nitro Powder proofed". To get this proofmark, a Gun in Austria has to be proofed with 130% loads.

    Here's the website... http://www.glockfaq.com/markings.htm

    From what I can gather, all it means is that your gun was assembled and test fired in Austria, not Smyrna, GA like most of them. I think that's a good thing seeing as how Austrian standards state that the gun must be tested and passed at 30%+ normal load.

    The eagle is actually the Austrian coat of arms and is used as a proof mark. This mark with a 2 in the center means that it was proofed at the firing proof house in Vienna.

    Looks like the above applies to early production G19's. There should be three letters in the serial number that are the date code. My G30 is LWT which means it is a G30SF, test fired February 2008, 3rd Gen. with Trijicon night sights. This is a complete list of date codes...
