I heard a rumor that some Glock Gen 4 are coming from the factory with 10 round magazines instead of the normal hi-capacity magazines, anyone know if this is true. I'm getting ready to purchase a Glock 19 Gen 4 and I don't want any surprises.

My 3rd gen glock 30sf came with two ten rnd clips. Don't feel bad, in Mass where I used to live you can own 10rnd clips but can only put 7 rnds in them :dunno:

I think they are the white label. In states that have a mag limit GLOCk sends mags that have a 10 round capacity. California, NY, NJ, Mass etc.

New Jersey's pistol magazine limit is 15 rounds at current.

I think it varies by state. In non-restricted states, they come with full-capacity magazines.

Not to nit-pick (OK, maybe a little ... :supergrin:) but the G30 comes standard with 10 round mags! It's not new. I believe they used to come with 9 rounders and the newer ones come with 10 rounders.

I just bought a 30 in December and it came with two 10 round mags. I bought a couple more and also a 9 rounder for EDC.

Re-read the post. He knows he has 10 round "Magazines".

A sales type at an LGS place in Texas told me two years ago that they sometimes receive new Glocks in the box, that were mfgd. for the 10 round states - yes, they did have the 10 round mags.

So, I guess it is not totally uncommon to find 10 rounder new Glocks in the "open mag" states. :)

When I purchased my Gen 3 G19 (new) two years ago, it came with one 10 rd magazine and one 15 rd.

A few States have restricted the capacity of magazines as far back as 1994, so Glock has been making them since 1994.

The G30 has always shipped with 10-round magazines. The 9-round flush fitting magazine has always been an after purchase option.

9mm 10-round magazines come with the funky #2183 followers, which should be replaced with 9mm-3's.

I understood that. I just made the point that the 10 round mags that came with a G30 pistol were standard for that model as I had purchased one a month or so ago and it came with 10 rounders. It's not a new "ban" thing but standard issue in that model.

Duh. Everyone here knows that.

The original question was for a G19.

Another Duh! You already knew that G26 has always been a 10 rounder gun since the beginning of time. Right?

Actually, your G26....10 rds. mag.....could actually take one more round. Some don't know this. Shhhh !!!

Glock’s are in pretty short supply right now (we are out at the store I work at), some dealers may be taking guns with 10 rd mags rather than be out of Glock’s. Sometimes guns with 10 rd mags are shipped to full capacity states by mistake. Last year when I finally received my Gen4 G32 it came with 10 round mags, I had waited so long to get it I just kept it rather than send it back and wait even longer for a gun with hi-cap mags.

why is that? will they fail or has glock recalled them?
