According to The Complete Glock Reference Guide (3rd Edition), the CFD serial numbers were imported in April 1997, but they were on Glock 17 pistols, the standard size 9mm (9x19) pistol. That doesn't fit with your description of the pistol as a G32 (compact-framed .357 Sig).

The prefix CFP was a G32 frame imported also in April 1997.

If you have quoted the serial number correctly, then this might indicate a discrepancy in either Glock's record-keeping or the publishers of the book I referenced.

It would be nice to see a photo of the frame, if that's possible.

Question: does this pistol have 2 or 3 pins?

You can find out all you want to know about the gun by calling Glock and giving them the serial number. When you give them the serial number, they can tell you if your pistol requires any upgrades. I didn't even know there were Gen2 G32's, but it sounds like that's what yours is. I suppose as long as yours has three pins, two pins above the trigger, it should be fine.

Here's their phone number(NOT toll free): 1 770 - 432 1202
If you didn't get an instruction manual, you can ask them to send you one.

I'm guessing his SN is CPD because he asked if it might have been a Chicago PD trade-in....
My book doesn't show the CPD prefix at all, at least not after scanning the entire list twice. It could be (a) it's not there, or (b) I just can't see it. Maybe Glock didn't publish some of their serial numbers. They did issue multiple runs of serial numbers on different dates, even for different models:

Glock 22, DPD: 02/94, 06/92, 02/93, 09/95, 10/94, 02/98
Glock 23, DPD: 06/92

I suppose if the customer is big enough (D could be Dallas, Denver, Detroit, etc.) you give them the serial numbers they want!

Could be as you say Chris. Who knows?

I was getting my info from the user supplied GlockTalk which is sometimes incorrect and is often times incomplete. I figured the missing prefix just meant no one has reported that particular prefix and given it was sandwiched between other .357sig models it was prob must missing and his gun is CPD. Just my speculation though for what that's worth .... exactly nothing. lol.

This isn't a science, it's an ART! Kind of disappoints me, too, because I like structure in the world. Oh well.

I carry a G32 gen3 EDC but have began to carry my 36 alot to its a dream to carry with a spare mag. But here is a link from Pete about the .357sig. It is a very good read and shows why many LEA's are going to to rd and hear nothing but positive from agencies who use the .357sig. I also have a new 35 and 24 with plans of sig, LoneWolf barrels. These barrel lengths should have the 125gr projectile screaming, David
