    Hey everyone! New Gen 4 G17 owner checking in from NJ. After finally being able to track down a G17 (with 10 round mags), I'm happy to report that after 80 rounds through the new Glock, I had not a single problem. I'm looking forward to lurking here and learning more about my new glock, and hopefully can contribute at some point as I become more experienced with my glock.

    I love the G4 17. Here in NY we are limited to 10 round mags, but you can still also buy pre-ban mags. So I have some 17 round mags for it :)

    Are you completely precluded from getting 17 round mags? If so, then I'm curious as to why you didn't choose the G19 which supposedly you can get in NJ with the 15 rounders.

    Personally I like the grip of the 17 better than the 19 :)

    Welcome aboard! Just to let you know if you had bought a G19 you could use the 15 round mags in it.

    Thanks for the replies all. I know I could have used the 15 round mag in the G19, I just liked the grip feel on the larger 17. I have big hands, so a full size just felt like the right fit. I wish they would make a 15 round G17 mag!

    Welcome!

    I'd rather forego a 15 round magazine for the G17 and have NJ wake the heck up and trust us with a whole 17 rounds like the free states do.

    That's fine by me. IDPA uses a 10+1 round limit anyway. That's what I'm shooting in my 17 regularly at the range.
