he has one for trade and i need to know.
It's a Gen 2. Post the letter prefix on the serial number and I should
be able to tell you the year of manufacture.
I've got more than a few Glocks--and actually prefer the Gen 2 grip to
the Gen 3's.
he has it for trade on another site and he said its a gen 1. gen 1's have a smoother look and feel at least thats what i have heard?
Go to the above thread. Look at post 2. Compare to your picture. Gen 2.
Not saying it couldn't be some weird gen 1.5---Glock did some stuff like that--but it's not a 1.
Gen 1 in that link looks like the grip is all one texture and wraps around the whole grip, if you look at gen 2 is looks like the one you have posted here, where the textured part is in sections, if that makes sense
I have a 19 that looks just like that. Mine is a Gen 2 made in 1989.
Pistol is a gen 2. The magazines do appear to be 1st gen (non-drop free, non full metal lined) though.
IMHO the Generation 2 grip is the most useful, because it allows the use of a slip-on grip sleeve like the Hogue Handall. This adds slight palm-swells and finger grooves, and subltly alters the Glock grip angle that many folks hate and makes it feel more like a CZ75---much more comfortable and natural. Gen 2 is great and I'd buy it! If you take it to a Glock Factory Armorer it is likely that they will completely update it with new parts......for free..........................elsullo
