Standard Glock pistols come with two magazines. The blue label guns come with three.

Yep, both of my Gen4 Glocks came with 3 mags. Sounds like that listing is for a Gen3.

Then I am being hosed. Aggravating...

Can you confirm this in the owner's manual or some sort of sheet with "proof" I suppose? I want to be able to point when I pick it up and say "look, here it says I should be getting 3 mags... where's my 3rd mag?"

My Gen 4 Glock 19 came with 3 magazines. I think the original reason was because of the ambi mag release and new mags. Now that the Gen 4 is somewhat established, Glock may be getting cheap and removing the 3rd mag. You should call Glock for the most accurate info.

All of the Gen 4s that I peeked at on Gun Genie show they come with 3 mags, FWIW.

Are your 10 round mags ambi release? I ask because I expect gen4's to all ship with standard cap mags. The requirement for low cap mags may have been a factor in Glock deciding not to make CA compliant gen4's.

My G17 gen4 came with standard cap magazine kits (3 of them) that are ambi release compatible. I could not locate ambi release 10 rounders so I use the RH only release 10 round mags.

In the United States, NIB Glocks *typically* come with 3 magazines. I say typically because right now my local gun store has two NIB Gen 3 Glock 22s, but one Gen 3 has three mags and the other item has two. They have a $20 price difference, so it is plausible the distributor isn't pulling a fast one on the OP.

There doesn't seem to be a delineation between Gen 3 and Gen 4 Glocks for mags in the box around here.Perhaps this is different in 10 round states.

Just looked at them and yes, all 3 are the new ambi release with the cut on both sides.

I think different Distributors have different standards for the amount of Magazines included. I just don't know.

Gen 3 = 2 standard mags

Gen 4 = 3 ambi mags

I recently made this gripe to my LGS. To be fair the only comparison I had was the 24 Glocks our agency just ordered, which all came with three mags. LGS owner, who is a good guy and runs a good shop, said only LEO orders come with three mags, all others just come with two.

Go to RSRGROUP.COM, a large and well known wholesale distributor who keeps their website up to date, no need to login. Under the Online Catalog tab, select Product Search. Next flip from Manufacturers to Catagories and select Firearms-Handguns. Filter with Glock under Manufacturer and Gen4 under Model. You'll see all the Gen4 models are listed with 3mags.

Name the Distributor.

You can also contact Glock to clarify the facts. At the same time if you are indeed being shorted one magazine you can tell Glock. If you haven't received the gun yet, make sure you take pictures to proof that you only received two magazines. You don't want the distributor to some back and say you are the one who hid a magazine and now trying to make a false claim for free ones.

I was given 2 ten round mags and I found out others were given 3, it doesn't sit well with me but since they were willing to do SSE's than I decided it's not a big deal.

Pick your battles wisely, bro. This doesn't sound like one of them.

If I had to pay extra for SSE and then the LGS decides to take one of my mags and lie to me about it only coming with 2, then I'm fighting. If not for the mag then for principles/morals. Look to see if any of them are carrying a gen4 glock. ;)

More than likely the dealer sold the third mag, is selling the gun with 2 at a discounted price. I do this all the time.

Yea look for the price to possibly dropped. I know a few that sell the mags and bring in in on price also. But they still should tell you up front that it's only coming with 2.. Some guy may expect 3 and think that's a great price but not so much just coming with 2 and ruin the whole reason he went with that shop in the first place
