blue label g17 gen 3. supposed to have 3 mags?

the one i tried to buy today. (stuipid nics check) only had 2 mags. i was always under the impression that ONLY gen 4 models had 3 mags until i read this.

http://www.gssfonline.com/GSSF_Pisto...nformation.pdf

unless im missing something i didnt see the part that exluded gen 3 models. yes, every non blue label gen 3 glock i ever bought only had 2 mags. basically im just trying to make sure im not getting ripped off

read the very last sentence in the pdf

Should have three and should be printed on the blue label that box contains three.
Gen3 G 26 and 27 only had two mags.
All Gen 4 guns, including G26 and G27, have three mags except the new G42 which has two.

Every Blue label Glock I've bought (at least four Gen 3's and 3 Gen 4's) has had three mags. This practice goes back at least 5 years. Maybe the shop pulled one? I've heard of stores doing this.
Might be different in your neck of the woods.

yeah, i just looked at my red label boxes and it said 2-hi cap 17 rd.
i cant wait to call them out on their BS now!!! unless the guy "accidentally" grabbed a red label by mistake. i asked him about the 3rd mag and he said no just gen 4. NOW he is a really nice guy and OLD so maybe he forgot? idk. either way im getting my 3rd mag OR im going to tell them im calling glock to tell them what scam they are pulling and ill go somewhere else.

the discount program called for 2 mags before the Gen4s came out.
SOME dealers pulled the 3rd mag from the blue label box SOME let it go with 3 mags.

But the program called for 2 mags.

I am assuming you are buying new?
If it is used the store may have taken it in with only 2 mags

update. just talked to gssf/glock in smyrna. they said ALL blue label guns under the leo or gssf program WILL come with 3 magazines. the dealer HAS to supply the gun with all the magazines listed on the label of the gun box.

EXCEPT in states with magazine capacity restrictions (california, MA, etc.) they are "allowed" to take a mag out for some reason. but that doesnt apply to me in Michigan as she confirmed.

This pisses me off, its one of the bigger dealers/ranges in the area and for the most part are stand up guys. i cant believe they would stoop this low.

Agreed, but I have a copy of that same page from 2010 and it says all pistols come with TWO magazines.
You will have to point out to your dealer that the rules have changed!

You did say earlier that the guy was really nice but OLD. Maybe he was not aware of the new rules.

yeah, i printed out that link i posted. (it says revised 2011 at the top) that was a long time ago, and there is no way in hell they have any pre-2011 blue labels layin around at this shop. they move a TON of guns.

like she said, a "blue label is a blue label" no difference gssf or leo sale. her quote.
i hope the owner(s) will make it right. i have bought/traded many guns from them over the years. i mean besides the "point" its a $25 item that should be in the box

This did not apply to Gen3 subcompacts.

Well I talked to them on the phone when they called about my nics check. I said what I knew was right and had paper work etc. He stumbled a little and said " oh yeah you will get the third mag"....

Bunch of dishonest $@&$/
