    Does it have AOH stamped on the hood of the barrell? Like this;



    Somebody on GLocktalk told me that it meant that it was test fired in Dec. 06'. I have my doubts it. I tend to believe what you told me regarding the first three letters in the serial number.

  4. Mine says LOT9x19 which would equal Feb/08 based on the table I posted earlier. AOH would equal Dec/06. that's probably where he got the Dec/06 date. I'm not sure I trust that as a gun manufacture date. Maybe a barrel manufacture date. I've also learned that these codes may only apply to pre-96 guns, which account for the fact that the codes don't make much sense when it comes to our serial numbers. From everything I've been able to gather, the code in the serial number is the date of manufacture/final assembly and testing. My G19 is not even on my SN list. I'll call Glock and get the skinny on it.

    With the shortage of G19's ...and most Glock models, it doesn't make sense that your gun would have been sitting on a shelf in Austria since '06 and just shipped to the US now. It's far more likely that it was sitting on a dealers shelf less than a month after manufacture.

    I would say at this point that the barrel code is the manufacture date of the barrel and the code in the serial number is the manufacture/final assembly/testing of the gun.

    That makes sense... Again many thanks for the info! I am learning a lot

  6. Still have not received it

    Ordered my glock 19 last FEB 10th 2009. Full payment... nothing yet...

  7. We actually just sold the one we just recently bought because two guard companies she interviewed with only allow revolvers. It has something to do with their general liability insurance. I ran into the same thing with our GL. To get the best rate, there are some guns that they won't allow us to use. My Glock 30 was one because of it's short barrel. Of course every insurance company has their own opinions and different rates.

    Hard to believe that they have a problem with a semi-auto that has a barrel length just under 4". I would think that they don't want guards carrying revolvers with a 2" barrel? What really surprises me is that the guard company (as well as the insurance company) allows the guards to use their personal firearms. A number of factors come into question like Was there any work done to the trigger? Does the barrel meet factory specifications? Was the gun properly maintained? How does the company know that there wasn't any "unauthorized" or "out of spec" ammo fired through the gun?, etc....

    I wouldn't want to work for uniformed security company that required me to provide my own primary duty side arm. I can understand supplemental or "BUG" firearms, but the primary should be issued by the company.

    JMHO

  9. Most of the local based companies do not provide a firearm. National companies like Wackenhut provide the firearm...a 4" 38 special revolver. From what I understand it is mostly mandated by the insurance company and each one is slightly different. There are two local companies I know of that will let you use an auto as long as you've had advanced training with that gun.

    Those are all very good points on the firearm issue thing. I would tend to agree. I think that's one reason why the more reputable ones want to carrying a good quality revolver. (1) They are less to have issues in the field and (2) there are lots of people out there new to the security business AND new to guns who wouldn't know what to do if an auto jammed.

    I may not sell my G30 just because it's my primary carry gun, but I probably will sell the G21. Just can't afford to collect guns that won't be put to use. Besides, I shot a Sig P220 and now I want one.
