    Does anybody know when the gen 4 glocks are going to be legal in California?

    I called all the gun shops around my area and they all told me "All gen 4 glocks are not legal in california and we dont know when its going to become legal."

    I was just checking if anybody knows the answer in here because i was about to buy the gen 3 glock 19 but was thinking i should just wait for the gen 4 to come out. What do you guys think i should do? Wait or just go buy the gen 3 now?

    Because if you so much as change the finish on a pistol, it has to go through the whole DOJ approval process to get on the "safe gun" list again. I doubt the Gen4 is going to get approved in CA in any event. As of Jan 1, new guns for approval have to have a magazine safety which Glocks don't have.

    Best just get the Gen3.

    My condolences to the OP for having to live there.

    Yes, it's up in the air on whether they will be approved or not.

    Get a Gen 3 or Gen 2 for now...

    i asked the same question from 2 local gunshop owners here in san francisco , and the both had said the same thing that there iz a ban hold on them due to the double coil spring . But of the store owners had contacted a glock rep. And said that it waz goin through some court issues and that the gen 4 should be available in california somewhere late april or in may hopefully .

    Your high temp today was 28? Ours had the numbers transposed -- 82. Not trying to convince you of anything -- just answering your question.

    I love where I live but hate all the rules. It's just sucks to wait for something that other people already have. I just have to live with it. I just tried callIng city arms but they're not open on Sunday and Mondays. I'll try again tomorrow
