    Glock serial numbers?

    I've got two third series G19's. One has a string of numbers for the serial number, the other's ends in "US". Can anyone tell me if there is a difference? Does the "US" specify anything special or different?

    Strange...my G26 is LLLNNN (with L being a letter and N being a number).

    Note: Glocks with commemorative markings have their own section here

    My Glock has serial number xxxyyy, when was it made?
    First, check this thread over at GlockTalk.com to see if it is listed there. If it's not in that list try this tool at TopGlock.com. If that fails call Glock with your serial number and they will tell you the date of your gun.

    What do Glock serial numbers mean?
    Glock started with serial number "AA000". The serial numbers went up to "AA999" and then rolled over to "AB000", etc. Once they reached "ZZ999", it rolled over to "AAA000", and so on. Pistols imported into the United States have a "US" on the end of the serial number on the frame.

    There are some Glock pistols with custom serial numbers.When asked to make custom serial numbers for Police Agencies making large orders, Glock uses the initials of the department, a four digit number and the "US" designation. For example, the Detroit Police Department had this done. Their pistols have a serial number like "DPD0001US". [John Hollister]

    Why does my frame/slide/barrel have a G#### / S#### / L#### serial number?
    Replacement frames slides and barrels have special serial numbers. The serial number consists of a single letter followed by 4 digits:
    G#### for replacement frames
    S#### for replacement slides
    L#### for replacement barrels

    The prefixes seem to fit with the German translation of the part they represent:
    G = Griffstück (frame)
    S = Schlitten (slide)
    L = Lauf (barrel)

    What is a J#### serial number?
    Glock prototypes and other parts for internal use only are given a special serial number. The number is a J followed by four numbers (J####), J1234 for example. This number is used because the letter J is not included in any other Glock gun codes.
    P.S. You Glock guys should bookmark this website. It's a wealth of information for anyone with a Glock.

    Thanks for the info and link RR! So my gun with the "US" is imported from Austria. Maybe that's why it shoots so much better than my other G19?

    LOL! More than likely. Now I'm going to have to look at all of mine to see if they all have the US marking or not. I just looked at my carry G27 and it is US! Sweet! We is members of the Glock import club!

    My third gen G19 has no US.

    I guess my Glock was born in Smyrna.
