    I am confused about the Glock Blue Label Program, I was under the impression that you were given a discount on certain Glock pistols. I called my LGS and they told me that only certain guns were listed under the program and there was no discount! What is the benefit of purchasing a pistol under this program if there is no price difference??

    You have to go to a Glock Blue Label dealer or order from one. Saved about 100.00 on a Glock 19. Go to the Glock website and find out. I don't know which guns are available under the program.

    The dealer must be a blue label dealer and you must have the proper credentials. Veterans are eligible till Sept 3rd I believe. There is a discount but it varies by dealer. My guess is your LGS is not a blue label dealer and just wants the sale. Multiple threads on this program. Check out GT Distributors and look for guns with LE pricing.

    Only certain dealers are blue label dealers. Nearly all pistol models are available under the program, save for some like compensated models. Gen3 through Gen5 are available. The discount is generally in the $75-$100 range, but more like $50 for G42 and G43.

    I would find another gun shop.
    Glock has LNL as merely a stocking dealer.
    Sounds like they don't even know what the Blue Label Program is.

    Walter Craig in Montgomery is the only Blue Label dealer that showed up on
    Glock's dealer search for AL

    Perhaps they're telling you there is no discount on the fixed Blue Label pricing.
    Ask them for the Blue Label price and non BL price, ie:commercial.

    They are not a blue label dealer, so they lie about the blue label discount so the buyer doesn’t go down the road and buy a discounted pistol from the competition.

    Dealers always want to sell the inventory they have. Some are unscrupulous enough to lie to try to make sales.

    Blue label price on standard glocks should be $398.20. Some dealers charge $425.

    Correct-
    A distributing dealer is 398, such as GT, Keisler, etc. A BL dealer will be 425.
    42 and 43 are cheaper, my BL dealer had one in stock at 339, so I didn’t wait to order one from Keislers for a bit less...

    My g23 was less than 500$ OTD with tax.
    Full size and compact pistols get 3rd mag.
    SC pistols do not get additional mag.
    There is a couple of threads for price list.
    IIRC, LEO and MIL disco is less than GSSF blue label.
    Also, as others have stated dealers vary.

    According to Glocks map, not a single blue label dealer in New England. I find that hard to believe.

    The Glock map for blue label dealers is not accurate.
    The Goldmine, Daphne, Alabama, has them at $26 above the standard blue label price.
    e.g. G17 $399 - their price $425.

    Your LGS lied to you because they aren't a blue label dealer and they want you to buy from them at full retail. I would not do business there again.

    I agree . Something happened recently, because a few months ago It showed lots of dealers all over Kentucky, but when I checked recently It only showed 1 or 2 dealers in the state, even though I know a lot of other shops that are blue label. Somebody has screwed up Their blue label listings on the website.

    My Glock 43 cost me $368 and my 17 was $398.

    Glock's latest website needs more work. Maybe Glock will get around to fixing its website in a couple more years.

    There are some shops here in AZ that are playing games with the blue label program. I bought a G22.4 from a local dealer about six or eight months ago. All is well with that sale at $425 plus tax. I went back a couple months later to see about a 19X. They remembered I had previously bought the G22. When I inquired about the blue label price of the 19X he had, the owner told me that the blue label 19X was the same as the price he had on the gun in the case ($585, I think) and that basically the blue line price was the same as retail. As a 26 year LEO, I immediately recognized by his behavior that he was lying. The internet later confirmed that he was lying and I'm done with that shop. I don't care for liars.

    I knew that I could get one on blue label in Tucson (80 miles away) or Scottsdale (180+ miles), but didn't feel like traveling right then. There's another gun store in town right across the street from the one above. I went over, he had some 19X pistols and showed me one. I asked if they had the blue label program, and he told me no, but that I could order one and he would do the transfer for $15. I asked him what he would take in cash for the one I had in my hand. He countered with $564 plus tax and made the sale. I could have saved $31 by traveling to get one or $15 by ordering one. Life is too short.

    I called Walter Craig in Montgomery and their price was $375 +tax for a G19 gen5, I was not in for a 2hr road trip today but I will not be purchasing any more guns from LockNLoad Enterprise Al. They quoted $475 + tax for the same gun!
