    Glock Born On Date

    I happen to be completely new to glock and so was reviewing all the info that glock provides for a new gun owner. I read that if you email glock with your serial number and ask for your pistol's born on date, they will tell you. And its true, I got a response super fast from customer service about my pistol's particulars.

    I was curious what some more established members here have for a born on date.

    My glock is a Gen 3 17.
    I bought it mid Feb 2014 in Los Angeles, CA.
    Its born on date was Dec 5th 2013 in Austria.

    Considering, create time, QA time, and travel time, it spent a month or less on the shelf which seems pretty short.

    So what do other people have as a born on date?

    I can't remember all mine as I had a bunch at one time. I always got the date off of the small envelope that the spent casing was in.
    Dan Wesson Pointman 9, HK USP Compact, HK USP .45, S&W 3913 Tactical, Glock 30s, Glock 23, CZ 75 Tactical Sport and a Ruger SR22.

    S...May
    Z...Jun
    G...Jul
    P...Aug
    I...Sep
    C...Oct
    V...Nov
    A...Dec

    The last two letters are for the year:
    O...0
    W...1
    K...2

    On glock's Web page, they have a contact us link at the bottom. Nested in that is a Web submission form. Though the email the response came back from was: TeamGlockATglockDOTus

    Sorry I cant post links yet it seems I am too new a member.

    Thats interesting info, but is it only for certsin models or generations?

    My serial number starts with WM and that doesnt align with glocks response of Dec 2013 for me.

    This chart does not correspond to my Austrian made 26 at all. My serial number starts with UT and test fired in March of 2012.

    Then I'm sorry I should have checked the info before posting. Or to which model it works for.
    Nevertheless it does correspond to my G born date

    There might be some confusion, the 3 letters are not part of the S/N they are on the top of the barrel.
