I just picked up 3 G38 mags and these dont have metal plate looking thingy ( like the one in G19 ) .

can anyone tell me the difference ? G38 mags works fine .. but i wasnt sure if i need to send em back or something .. just wanted to ask you guys before ..

The mags with the exposed metal are a newer mag, designed to work with the now abandoned ambi mag release. Both styles will function 100% in any Glock.

The new Gen4 frames will have a reversible (not ambi) mag release and newer mags to boot.

They're obviously defective. Send them to me, and I'll make sure that they're safely disposed of...

Count yourself lucky. I'd like to come across some cheap.
