    For those of you who are willing to deal with Botach, I see that they have new 13-round Glock 23 and new 15-round Glock 19 magazines for $15.95 each. I'm not sure whether they're LEO marked or not...you'll have to give them a call.

    You almost say that like you have had problems with them.
    I almost ordered 2 g 23 mags from them until I ran across your thread.
    I have never ordered threw them and I was wondering should I look else where.
    Please let me know before I make a mistake

    I have not personally had any big problems with them, but many fellow GlockTalk members have. You can substantially reduce your risk(s) if you follow certain rules:
    * never order online
    * when you call Botach to place your order, know the item reference number(s) and price
    * when you call Botach, only speak to Jasmine
    * make sure she checks and double checks that the item(s) you want are definitely in stock
    * make sure she gives you your order number for future reference
    * make a follow-up phone call to Jasmine in 24 hours to ensure that your order has been processed.

    If you utilize these guidelines, you'll probably be fine. Sometimes Botach's prices are worth the hassle (to me).

    I also recommend that you do a GlockTalk search on "Botach".

    If you do order through Botach, let them know you want a pricematch and give them this URL * www.ivanhoeoutlet.com
    and they'll match Ivanhoes $16 each price.

    Better yet, Ivanhoe has them on the same time-frame of backorder and it's one of the best companies on the net to do business with and they have FREE shipping !

    So, go IVANHOE ! ') ;c

    I have read nothing but positive reviews for Ivanhoe, so I sent them an email about two weeks ago asking about availibility and anticipated pricing of the new standard capacity magazines.

    Reply indicated that the expected price would be still be $16 ea.

    As to availability, they told me that they would post on their website when the mags were in stock.

    I've checked almost every day since and still no new full-caps. :(

    As of this morning CDNN showed having the new G19's and Ivanhoe is finally taking orders for G23's and a few others. I have always had great experiences with both those vendors.

    Thanks for the heads up. I just ordered 2 brand new, non-LEO, 17-round Glock 17 magazines for $32 including shipping. It's next to impossible to beat that price!

    If Botach is selling them for $15.95 and Ivanhoes is selling for $16, why do you want Botach to match the higher price? ;g ;g

    Besides, if Ivanhoe is as good as you say, they are still a good deal at twice Botach's price. Botach, never again.

    Because I don't need G19 and/or G23 magazines...I needed G17 magazines.

    I also ordered 2 new non-LEO 17 rd mags from Ivanhoe, having just noticed their availability on the website.

    $32 shipped for 2 factory glock mags is a teriffic deal. I know that Botach can't/won't match it.

    Botach is higher in price when you factor in the shipping. I've always had good luck with Ivanhoe.I'm sure you'll like them if you ever decide to use them .;c
