    Glock Commemoratives

    So what's everyone's opinions about Glock Commemorative Pistols? Something you'd be interested in collecting for personal collection? Future value?

    I've stayed away from them only because I know how OCD I can become with collections. I'm afraid if I started collecting them I couldn't quit and some have become rather expensive or near impossible to obtain.

    Here's some info on the official commemorative pistols from Sandowski's book

    Desert Storm Commemorative a.k.a. "New World Order"
    May 1991 Gen2 G17
    1,000: UD000US-US999US


    Defensive Set - These are confusing and would be really hard to find a 4 pistol set.
    500 matching 9mm sets made consisting of a Gen2 G19 and Gen3 G26
    The G19 is engraved "Defensive Set 1 of 2" with Serial Number AAA0000 - AAA0499
    The G26 is engraved "Defensive Set 2 of 2" with Serial Number AAB0000 - AAB0499
    A matching set would have the same last three digits of the serial number matching so AAA0100 and AAB0100 would be a matching set.

    There were 1,500 .40 S&W sets made. The first 500 would have serial numbers matching the 9mm sets, but dealers had difficulty finding buyers who could afford 4 pistols so they frequently broke the 4 pistol sets up. Often even the 2 pistol sets were broke up.
    The .40S&W consisted of a Gen2 G23 engraved the same as the 19 and numbered AAC000 - AAC1499
    The Gen3 G27 was engraved the same as the 26 and numbered AAD000 - AAD1499

    Centennial Georgia Olympic Games - engraved "Security Team/Atlanta GA 1996"
    July and August 1996 - Gen2 G17
    2000: BZF000US - BSF999US and CAE000US - CAE999US
    Walnut Display Case

    50th Anniversary of Bell Helicopter - engraved with Bell Helicopter 50 year "Ping" logo
    December 1996 - Gen2 G23
    73: BELL000US - BELL072US

    Ducks Unlimited/Great Outdoors - only one issued
    December 1997 - Gen3 G27

    2 Millionth Glock - only 2 issued. One in US (auctioned for LEO foundation) and One in Germany
    January 1999 - Gen3 G17

    Alaska Statehood - engraved "40 Years of Alaska Statehood 1959-1999" outline of state
    April 1999 - Gen3 G27
    100: DBW000US - DBW099US

    NRA - engraved "NRA"
    April 2000 - Gen3 G22
    725: DFY000US - DFY724US

    October 2001 - Gen3 G17
    1,000: GSSF000 - GSSF999

    America's Heros - Honoring PD and FD for 9/11 engraved PD in a seven sided star, America's Heros in a scroll and FD in Maltese cross with 9-11-01 underneath.
    March and May 2002

    1,000: Gen3 G19 - KNF000-KNF999
    1,400: Gen3 G23 - KWG100-KWG999; KWR500-KWR999

    Defensive Set photo - not the best photo, hopefully we'll eventually have a member who can post their own photos. The case is not part of the set, it looks homemade.

    There's also the FBI 100th Anniversary pistols that come in the display case. Originally only available to Special Agents.

    1989 Inaugural Model G19

    So I just recently traded for a G19 with the FOP symbol and "1989 Inaugural Model" stamped on the right side of the frame. I did find one post from about 8 years ago that had this information: "These Glocks were offered as an off-duty weapon to members of the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Dept. in March of 1989, with delivery in August of 1989. It is stamped: “1989 Inaugural Model” with the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) symbol. This is when they started carrying Glocks. I don’t think there are very many out there since it was an optional purchase for D.C. police officers."

    I have been a Glock fan since the first time I shot a G19, but I am not really a collector - more a user. The only one I don't shoot is the 42 I bought as a gift for my grand daughter when she graduates college. So anyone have any interest in this 30 year old G19? Still has the original Glock gold sparkly grease on the slide.

    This seems to be a commemorative 2 years before the first one mentioned on this thread? Has original box and all paperwork still sealed in plastic. Was told it has never been fired, but hard to say NEVER.
