Ok, just got a Glock 36

My first handgun My question is this: I looked up the Born on date using the serial number and it said 2000. This may sound stupid, but does this means it's old and crappy and had 1 million rounds through it?

no it just means that it was made in 2000 and that is has been sitting for awhile. just clean it good and do a few function tests to make sure the springs still work. but if you are woried have a compitent gunsmith take a look at it.

No. Does it look old and crappy?


I have Glocks made in 1988 with a million (well maybe not that many) rounds through them and they are not old and crappy.

I have even older guns with even more rounds through them and not even the 1917 Luger P08 is old and crappy...yet.

Nice, thank you.

Good, just checking, Thanks for the response. I guess if it were an issue guns would come with an odometer.

In answer to my own question

I looked around and found a Glock stress test, this guy fired 100,000 rounds through a Glock without replacing anything and it still works.
