    Hey guys, I found a G23 Gen4 in the local classifieds and the guy says it's a G23 Gen4 Law Enforcement Edition. Is there such a thing, or is it just a regular G23 Gen4? I didn't think they had a law enforcement specific model. If so, what's the difference?

    Thanks!

    1 extra magazine and a blue label on the box.

    So the fit in hand and fire of the gun are identical to a non-LEO edition? No difference besides the box and an extra mag?

    Thanks

    and maybe night sights. My neighbor carries a Gen4 22 and he says it has a special heavier duty recoil spring and special sights on his. Since its his duty weapon I don't think I'd be allowed to take it apart, but I haven't ever heard of any special LEO parts being made.

    Exactly the same gun anyone can purchase and all G4 G23's come with 3 magazines.

    Depending on the depatartment, LEO'S are not allowed to modify stock OEM parts (ie. 3lb trigger connector, springs, barrel etc.) but, are trained to field strip and clean.

    Cool. Thanks for the info guys. I'm on my way to go check it out and probably buy it. It does have Glock night sights and 3 mags. He says it only has 100 rounds through it during state qualifications. Pretty much new, and comes with the case and all the goodies too. $500 I think I'm gonna take it!

    Nor should they. A duty weapon is no place for "bubba gun smithing". That's why we have trained Glock armors.

    You guys have to also consider he won't find a glock in that good of a condition regardless of what the officer paid for it. I would pay no more than $450 if in fact it has only 100 rounds through it.

    Yes, it's irrelevant what the officer paid for it. If you qualify for the blue label plan you wouldn't buying used (unless it is for something no longer in production). The blue label does not add anything to the value, nor does it take away from it. It is worth the same as any other, and that is what you should be judging the price on.

    No, there is not a law enforcement edition. Regular G23.

    My G23 Gen 4 is technically a Law Enforcement edition. All it is is that Glock prices the glocks differently to allow for the law enforcement discount. The stores would have to suffer major markdowns in order to sell a standard $600 G23 for $430. instead the L.E. glocks are marked seperately and the store gets thier share and Glock themselves take the hit.

    At least that was how the store salesman explained it to me.

    Technically, it's the same gun. The the color of the label on box it came in and the number of mags in the box were different, but there is no law enforcement edition gun except those with physical differences (such as engraving) commissioned by agencies. And LE price isn't $430. That's GSSF pricing, I believe.

    It was $430 where I got it, I don't care either way since that place is naturally marked up with their gen 4s being $650... just showed them my CAC card and all was good.

    I think what he was saying was that the blue label price is $398 for that particular weapon with stick sights. This goes back to another thread where different LE dealers are charging different amounts for their blue labels.
