Bought a new Glock Factory threaded barrel from a major online dealer. It came in the correct packaging and looked new, except it had a serial number on it. Wouldn't this be a takeoff barrel? I bought barrels in the past that did not have an S/N.

Posted in GD so I can figure this out quick!

Is it stamped around the barrel hood? It's a manufacturing code that tells Glock where & when it was made, etc. Most new Glocks have the number and it doesn't match the serial number on the gun.

No its on the side of the barrel where the S/N goes.

With the locking lugs in the six o'clock position, the manufacturing number will be at 9 o'clock and in a smaller font than a normal serial number. If it's on the ejecter/3 o'clock position then it's quite possibly a serial number although I'm not sure why unless it was a takeoff barrel.

I am thinking it is a takeoff barrel, which is a problem if it was sold as new.

it could be a new take off, guys buy glocks, colt ar's, ect and strip them right away
to sell as parts.

almost everything is worth more as parts, than as a whole.

Glock factory replacement barrels, slides, and frames do have S/Ns.

OEM replacement barrels have a "L" prefix.
