    They didn't make a Gen 1 Glock. They didn't make a Gen 2 Glock. They DID make a gen 2.5 for a short period.


    You have a generation 3 Glock 26.

    Looks like a Gen 3 to me as well.

    The two small pins on the frame just above the trigger tell me it is a Gen 3.

    Everyone knows the best Gen so far is "The Greatest Generation". Those guys knew how to defend freedom!

    As far as Glocks, I concur with your above statement

    I'm going to play echo and say you have a Gen 3...the baby Glocks didn't come out until around 1995 or so, you have finger grooves also which didn't show up until gen 3.

    At he risk of being accused of just going with the crowd or just piling on a thread already decided, I will say that yours is definitely a Gen3. I love my Gen3 G26. I have no doubt you'll enjoy yours as well.

    I think the OP needs to write a letter to Glock CS to inquire what generation he has. Can't be too careful these days you know!
