    Excellent info MT!

    Someone really likes Miami to part with that pistol. Sweet looking pistol. Congrats to you.

    In the US, Yes.

    It's really hard to know what Glock made and sold for different markets. Overall, the "C" models don't seem to be in the same demand in the US as other countries so there are often models available in other countries that we don't see. I have seen a 19c 2pin but don't remember having ever seen a 2pin 17c.

    Somethings not right. If you enlarge the pictures in post #7, you can see the faint outline of the third hole. I don’t have any explanation for it.

    How to tell a Gen1 from a Gen2

    Mark from the mold. It’s not uncommon to see, even on Gen2s.

    Had to get the light just right but you can see the mark here on my Gen2

    Yes, it does have that faint mark on the supposed 3rd pin.
