IIRC Glock Refurbished guns have a silver tag on the triggerguard as well that says - you guessed it - Glock Refurbished.

I think a refurbished Glock actually has a longer warranty than a new one. Not sure though.

Refurb Glocks say "Refurb" on the case label and, as previously indicated, should have the silver label on the trigger guard.

I've seen a couple less than honest shops doing that with used glocks. Pulling the extra mags and marking them at $45 and trying to sell the gun with only one mag, at above new price.

These are also the same guys who still have .223 in stock because they have 20 rd boxes marked at $22, and bare basic bushmasters for $1,500. I'm a capitalist, but greedy, dishonest, capitalists give us a bad name.

I won't buy anything from shops like these.

I see a lot of bad shops exist with a lot of unscrupulous owners. What I haven't seen is a lot of names of those shops. If your getting screwed over how about names? Without names, it's all bull****.

I think my LGS is doing this. I'm debating on rather or not I should call Glock customer service.

The shop was very clean, and welcoming......and seemed to us to be very well stocked....would recomend them to anyone in the area......
The museums in it are nice, and the range is too. I used to shoot there a lot.

Glock Refurbished. Possibly a Police trade in that has been gone through and refurbished and re-labeled by Glock and re-sold. Nothing wrong with it.

White Label
Factory Glocks sold at the regular price to civilians or those who are not on "the list" at full price.
I bought a G34 brand new red label, 2 hi-caps mags,this gun was brand new. no refurbished here

As others have pointed out, the information in boldface is dead wrong.

"Red Label" Glock(s) are NEW pistols that come with two (2) standard capacity magazines, from the last assembly point.
These firearms are NOT re-furbs. Again, they are NEW.

"White Label" Glock(s) are NEW pistols that come with two (2) 10 round capacity magazines, from the last assembly point.
These firearms are NOT re-furbs. Again, they are NEW.

Please tell me (PM if you wish) who the instructor was, in the class you attended, and where you attended the class, and the date.

This is BAD, WRONG information, and who/whomever told you this is incorrect, or you MAY have possibly heard something different than what was said.
(Believe me..... my wife accuses me of that, all the time!)

Not sure why anyone would need to bring this letter in to a dealer to prove how many mags are supposed to come with the gun, it says right on the label how many are included.
