I have a Glock 21 how do I tell what Gen. it is?
I see all these different Glocks listed as Gen 2, 3 etc just curious as to what mine might be.
I did a search but couldn't find what I was looking for.

Thanks all I bought it years ago, only Glock I own, has only had maybe a box of ammo thru it. Did have some fun with bowling pins with it.

I love the Gen 2 Glocks. I sometimes miss the accessory rail though.

I have a Gen2 Glock 19 and I like not having a rail. The gun has smoother lines without it.

I can tell you the month and year with the first three letters of the serial number.

I prefer the GEN 2 Frames. Easy grip. By the way, Glock will upgrade that weapon no charge.

Have fun

Actually the SF (Short Frame) model has the exact same fore and aft measurements as the GEN 2 hand grip. I have a GEN 3 G21 as well. I have big hands so the finger grooves don't bother me. But for comfort I prefer my Gen 2 frame on my old G21.

December 1995 Gen 2

(All large framed glocks started life as Gen 2s by the way)

No sorry. I was referring to your comment about "upgrading".

Sorry Chris....multi tasking and I missed your question.....(I hate it when work interferes with my Cal Guns time..LOL )

Glock will upgrade the older Gen 2s to current standards with new internal parts. It will still be a Gen 2 weapon, but it will have new modern parts inside.

Thanks learned something new tonight and somebody even asked if it was for sale.
But I'm going to take coyotebaits advice and shoot it.
