Was my pistol made in Austria and Georgia? When was it made?

I'm confused. :roll: My recently purchased Glock 19C has stamped on the the frame.

"MADE IN AUSTRIA
GLOCK, INC. SMYRNA, GA."


The above says made in Austria but also mentions Smyrna, GA.
Can someone tell me where my gun was assembled, and also when? My serial # is FLX941.

Thanks.

Bruce

Thanks. Ramjet.

Does anyone know how I could determine when mine was made. Some sites I've been directed to only give me info on older Glocks.

TopGlock & Glockmeister both have some mechanism for looking up your SN. You could also check the SN History thread in the Gen'l Glocking area of GlockTalk. Many of the postings haven't been updated, so you may have to do a 'find' (Control-F) on each page of subsequent posts to see if yours has already been posted. G19C, what are the 3 alpha characters?

FWIW, TopGlock doesn't have the right sequence available for the lookup, you might try Glockmeister emailing them the SN. Closest in sequence I can find is a G19 with FLRxxx which is May 2003. Did you buy the gun new? If so, do you live in a state where the dealer had to send in the case collection envelope which would've had the gun's "born-on" date stamped on it?

Yes-- bought the gun new. I didn't know about the "born on" stamp. I assume from the name that this stamp must give date made. Thanks for the tip. I'll call Gander Mountain in Middletown NY where I purchased it.

Uh, oh. That probably explains why you don't have any cases; the infamous (and stupid) ballistic fingerprint law. I'd be really surprised if they (GM) also noted the date on the envelope before they sent a batch in to the State. You COULD just call Glock at 770-432-1202; they'll only need the alpha characters & should be able to tell you.

BTW, assemblies are mfg'd in Austria, assembled & tested in Smyrna, which is also where your cases are fired. As there are proportionally less -C pistols made, I'd imagine in that FLX run yours is newer than the date listed above. I can tell you that my G34 FTSxxx was Dec 2003 so you can extrapolate from there. Sometime mid-late 2003 I'm guessing. Have fun. 8)

was my pistol made in austria or georgia

If the gun was bought new in N.Y. it is very recent as it had to have a spent case for the state police, also if you bought it at gander mountain, you probable spent to much, try bobs gun store in middletown. they are really good folks, and have reasonable prices, they are just up the block from the psy. center, not shure of the actual adress
