SMYRNA, Ga. --(Ammoland.com)- GLOCK, Inc. has announced that they have been selected as the official Handgun for the 2012 SHOT Show Auction.
A one-of-a-kind, hand-engraved GLOCK 22 will be available to GLOCK collectors and firearm enthusiasts worldwide during the auction, scheduled to take place starting at 10:00PM on December 14th January 20th, 2012.
The exclusive GLOCK, known within the company as the GLOCK Statue of Liberty Gun, features an intricate, hand-engraved tribute to the United States and the Statue of Liberty. This theme was selected to recognize GLOCKs 25th Anniversary in the United States, which coincides with the 125th Anniversary of the Statue of Liberty.
Often times, the misconception is that the limited edition pistols from GLOCK, such as the Statue of Liberty Gun are hidden away in company vaults, stated GLOCK Vice President, Gary Fletcher.
With the company celebrating 25 years in the United States, Mr. Glock wanted to give those who helped the company achieve that milestone of success an opportunity to own this one-of-a-kind piece.
In addition to ownership of the exclusive GLOCK pistol, the highest bidder for the 2012 SHOT Show handgun will also receive a hunting trip with GLOCK celebrity spokesperson, R. Lee The Gunny Ermey, and a framed drawing of the original GLOCK 17, signed by GLOCK President Gaston Glock.
The GLOCK will be released for auction on GunBroker.com, the worlds largest internet auction site for sporting firearms and related equipment, official auction site of the National Sport Shooting Foundation (NSSF) and promotional partner of the Hunting Heritage Trust. Last year, more than 315,000 GunBroker users viewed the 2011 Shot Show Handgun on the popular internet auction site. As in recent years, bidding for the SHOT Show auction items will take place exclusively on GunBroker.com.
All proceeds from the auction of the GLOCK Statue of Liberty Gun will benefit programs to further Americas hunting and shooting sports heritage.

But if you must engrave a Glock, I suggest this aftermarket barrel from Lone Wolf:
(They also make interchangeable .357SIG/9mm/.40 caliber barrels, and threaded barrels ready for a suppressor.)
I like the idea of the Statue of Liberty being engraved on the Glock because they both say "Freedom" to me.
A true case of ‘lipstick on a pig’.
Wow.... a lil bling bling for the hood....... shizzle fizzle fart fart.....:o)
So what does the FAG designation mean? I think that is on my Walther 9mm as well...
FAG = Fabricia d’armi die Gardone (Weapon factory Gardone?)
It’s the first three characters of the serial number.
I get a chuckle out of it.
The original use of the word 'fagot' was applied to Christians who were burned on stakes by the Romans.
