    Glock frame marking.


    I need some advise from some Glock owners regarding frame markings. I have a Glock 29 3rd gen. and I removed the trigger to install a Ghost 3.5 today. In the very back of the frame under the trigger was a laser dot rectangle with a laser dot dog in the middle with a target on the dog. This was very small and you can see it with your eye but with a hastings triplet you can see the dog and target at about 10x. I have more to say about what I believe this may be but I am hoping someone else has seen this dot matrix in their glock frame. No I am not nuts just a little strange. Any feedback would be appreciated. This pistol was recently purchased from a gun shop, one that has been in national news lately, near the Mexican Border. If this is a standard Glock marking I will be happy as I don't know of any technology owned by a gunsmith or person that can do microscopic laser engraving down in a hole inside the frame.

    Thanks anyway, I found my answer.

    The guys on Glock Talk said that the frame markings I found are an "easter egg" similar to the one found on computer chips. Glock adds them to track the frame through production. Interesting enough no one has ever seen one with a picture, just random dots. I don't like having a dog in mine but I have known some dogs I liked and perhaps a pig from Austria would be worse. Thanks anyway and remember you are not paranoid if they are really watching you. MWallace

    Thats pretty interesting. Ive seen that on mine. I knew it was a barcode to track the product through production but didnt know there could be pictures. Ill have to check mine again.
