Sorry to ask what may be a repeat question, but I have searched the net without success, and haven't been able to make the search function on this site work...I recently purchased a Glock 21, which was sold to me as a "first generation" gun...How can I confirm this? Also, is there a way to tell by serial number the year the gun was manufactured?

Thanks!

What's the first three letters on your serial number?

Top Glock has a reference guide also:

According to the serial number project on the Glocktalk website, the G21 first appeared in December of 1990 as a 2nd generation model. Look for the first 3 letters of your serial number and it will tell you when it was made.

Thanks for the responses- I used the topglock site to confirm a year of 1996 for the manufacture of my particular gun. I appreciate all your help!
