Hey all. Just ran across this:
>The early G22s were simply 9mm frames chambered in the new round, but when the >frame rail separation issue started to appear, in as little as 3000 rounds according to >some sources, Glock came out with a beefed up frame and has been selling them >ever since, including on the 9mm. If your frame has two pins above the trigger, you >have the new frame. Even most of the used, Police trade in Glocks on the market >were sent back to Glock to get the new frames (which is why many departments got >rid of them to begin with). If you don't have two pins, send it to Glock and they will >give you the new frame with the old serial number, probably gratis.

I don't know what pins this is referring to. Can anyone drop a pic or a link to a pic?

Thanks as always! GN

This is the 2 pin frame. It has a single pin above the trigger and is the "weaker" of the Glock generations

This is the 3 pin frame. It has 2 pins above the trigger and is the one that Glock, according to your origional post, will replace the 2 pin frames with.

Now as for what you are claiming..That glock replaces the old 2 pins with 3 pins I dont think I have ever heard of that especially not for free...but I could be wrong

Thanks Brian! I'm assuming from the photo that the replacement frame is a gen 3 frame...? Are the pins in question visable from the top with the slide removed? Any photos of these one or two pins avail?

Thanks to all!
Here is a picture of a Gen 2 G22 with the two pins over the trigger. When you open the attached you can see the pins better.

Sorry for the poor photo, had to use the cell phone.

You are welcome, glad to help a little.
