Appears to be a stenographic dot matrix code to most likely identify your gun model, serial number and date of manufacture.

Its actually been done on printers for a while. Most lasers will print a matrix in light yellow ink so if counterfeit money, currency etc is printed, the matrix will tell similar information.

Just a guess though

It is braille. Glock employs visually impaired assemblers. This is how they identify the proper barrel.

Lmao, sounds plausible for employees, wouldn't be suprised if it was the same guys shooting next to me at the range lastweekend. They creased the wall on their right, then actually hit my target and I was on their left. They apologized, but I still packed up and left. Crazy.

Braille on a handgun...that would be hilarious were it true. Kind of like the 1st time I saw a drive through window on a liquor store while stationed at FT Campbell KY.

Gotta love the South!
