    Mim locking block in old g17

    Hello all. Just bought a g17, serial number prefix hyf, hoping it was one of those old forged workhorses that glock is known for. What i found is that all of the common stuff is the older forged (336 ejector, non dip extractor, non mim striker) yet the locking block has the dimple signifying that it is mim. Do some older glocks (this one was test fired in 06) have the mim locking block?

    The only forged parts I am aware of on Glocks are the barrels. The rest are either milled from bar stock, cast or now MIM. How about a picture of the locking block so we can see of it is cast or MIM.

    Ok let me rephrase. My locking block is mim. It has the dimple. All im asking is did glock put these mim locking blocks in older (2006) guns or is this possibly a replacement.

    On other forums MIM means "Made in Mexico" mainly 1911 forums for those that think made in America is important and are willing to pay more for it.
