    Has Glock changed their magazines in their 4th generation pistols or are all glock mags still compatible? Don't know why they would but I just want to make sure. Are the glock 17 mags included with glock gen 4 the exact same as the those included in glock 17 gen 3? Does the gen 4s enlarged mag release not fit the notch in older style mags? Thanks.

    They are not the same. The old mags will work in the Gen4 unless you change the mag release to the right hand side. The new mags will work with old guns.

    Only the Blue labels are (LEO, MIL, GSSF, Armorer), the regular retail ones will still have two mags.

    I bought a civilian Gen 4 G22 with a red label and it has 3 mags and states 3 mags on the label. Also bought a Leo Gen 4 G17 from Ed's and it has 3 mags.
    Ed's Public Safety has great customer service and ships fast. Ordered on Fri. afternoon and was here Monday at noon. Great place to do business.

    I concur with SGT1911. My Red Label G22 I picked up today came with 3 mags as well.

    BTW It sure shoots nice!

    My Gen 4 G17 and G22 both are a tad more accurate than my Gen 3's. The recoil is a little different also. Less muzzle rise. only have shot 4 to 500 rds thru them so far. I like them better than the Gen 3's. Frame feels better in my hands. Have done the .25 cent trigger jobs on both and have a Ghost Ultimate 3.5 in the G17 and a LWD 3.5 in the G22.

    I just put a new Gen 4 17 on lay a way today. It was at a standard retail store (red label) and came with 3 mags.
