    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.

    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.

    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. :)

    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.
