I have a generation 1 Glock 17 which I purchased new in 1986 or 1987. The serial number, AS4xx, tells me it was made in June of 1986. When I bought the gun it was one of those "I just have to have one". I always carried a 1911 so the G17 has less than 200 rounds through it. I have lately started to carry the G17. I read the following article on another forum:

GLOCK, INC. Technical Bulletin #920403

April 1, 1992

Glock, Inc. announces a production change of the firing pin safety system. This has been installed in all production Glock pistols since November, 1991. A voluntary upgrade is being offered to maintain the Glock tradition of ensuring that all of our pistols are up to the latest standards in 21st century Glock technology.

Most importantly, the components of the new firing pin safety system are not interchangeable with the components of the old system and Glock will always strive towards maintaining this feature of interchangeability while working to ensure future interchangeability.

The upgraded firing pin safety system consists of: the firing pin, firing pin safety, the extractor, the spring loaded bearing and the trigger bar. The upgraded system is applicable only to Glock pistols with the following serial number ranges :

Glock 17 - alpha prefixes AA - WF
Glock 19 - alpha prefixes through WJ
Glock 20 - alpha prefixes through WW
Glock 21 - alpha prefixes through XL
Glock 22 - alpha prefixes through YA
Glock 23 - alpha prefixes through SK

The upgraded firing pin safety has a new surface finish making it nearly 100% saltwater corrosion resistant. Also, after rigorous and extensive testing, the new system proves to be more durable and has a longer useful life. Here, as always, Glock is working toward maintaining its standard of perfection.

Now I know my G17 does not have this new firing pin safety system. Is this gun safe to carry? What do I need to do to get this firing pin safety system installed? Thanks for your time and input.

Do the upgrades.:twak: Call Glock service and they can give you contact info for an armorer near you. Should be just about free, and if parts are in stock, takes only a short time.

Glock recall

I have a GAxxx and did the recall. They installed new sights and upgraded several other internal parts for free at the same time.
Good luck.
