unusual Glock 27

I've combed google and searched here before asking...

Anyway I have an early Glock 27 that I have been trying to find info on. It is in the original "tupperware" container, has the owners manual, no spent casings, and no barrel code. It has no rail, it has raised finger grips but no checkering, and it says .40 S&W on the slide. Also I couldn't find any info on the serial prefix. It is BSUxxxUS. On the container it says law enforcement sales only. It has night sights and a 5 lb trigger. So do I have a glock collector's wet dream or just another $450 used glock?

edit:
I am going to call Glock in the morning

Yeah I've seen that mentioned. Still haven't found a thing on the serial prefix (BSU). Every time I google it Boise State shows up .

Have you seen this thread?

It sounds like you just have an early model 27, I thought none of the baby glock had light grooves so I wouldn't consider that significant.

Yeah I looked that thread over but never saw the BSU prefix.

In all honesty it's probably only worth a few bucks extra to somebody who hangs out on Glocktalk.com all day and just has to have one of every transitional gun Glock ever made. For the other 99.9% of people who want a Glock 27, it's just another Glock.

EDIT: and the Glock 26/27/33 never had a light rail to my knowledge.

Yeah kind of what I figured just didn't want to sell it for $450-$500 if it was a $600 pistol to someone.

It's actually unsafe, send it to me with 20.00 for disposal.

glock will also produce a 'semi- custom' gun for certain LE applications by request. We got a few buy-back 21sf rtf2 with dot/dash sights on them. I know that was never a retail sku.

Oh look, it's a Glock 27.

I guess you could register at glocktalk and see if anyone will bite at $650. If they do, pat yourself on the back and buy a brand new one.

yeah I read around last night that they sell for $650+ in Massachusetts because their gun laws or some shit. I registered at glocktalk. Glock in Smyrna is closed today for easter.

Looks just like my carry one, except my finger grooves are serrated. BFD.

well I'd never seen one without the checkering on the front strap but with the finger grooves. I know some people go ape shit for odd glocks, thought maybe I had one, alas it looks like they made plenty of these so I'll probably just hang onto it.

No idea about the serial number, but to me it's just a plain looking 2nd gen. Unlike the full size models, 2nd gen subcompacts did have finger groves (else they'd be near impossible to hold). The 3rd gen added the checkering between the fingergroves.

And previous posters are right, 3rd gen subcompacts also have no light rail.

Edit: Just looked it up, I suppose you could call it a gen 2.5, since it does have the extra pin above the trigger. Model 26's and 27's were introduced just before the gen 3 glocks came out, so they came with some features that didn't come standard in full size models till 3rd gen. So your gun would have been manufactured in '96-'98.

3rd pins are commonplace in 2nd gen .40 Glocks.

Also correct. 27's have always been a three pin.

By the way, you have a very late 2nd gen that had the serrations removed by a smith or a hack. Worth maybe $400 to some, $200 to most.

Can you get me a pic of the other side? As far as I know, no 27's were ever produced without serrations and with finger grooves. Someone like Robar could have done a reduction and removed the serrations and I would expect it to look factory. Glocks without front strap checkering usually are missing it on the back strap as well.
