    If anyone knows where I might locate some NEW G17 NON ambi cut mags with #5 or #6 followers, please let me know. Thanks in advance!

    Put a listing in the want ads,....the "Wanted to Buy" section
    GunShows, GunBroker & GunsAmerica are also good places to check

    i just got some from CDNNinvestments.com

    they are listed at ambi cut, but they came as the normal single side cut.
    $20 each.

    If the standard notch is there, what is the problem with the ambi cut?

    I hate them! Just another "change" Glock screwed up on. IMO.

    Okay, whatever moves your furniture. I don't have a problem with them, though until they actually have an ambi magizine catch for the G-17, I don't see the need for them.

    The problem i have with the ambi-cut mags is that they stick out of the grip frame and so the bottom of the magazine is not flush with the grip frame.

    This only presents a problem with my G27 when attempting to use aftermarket extensions. The longer cut of the magazine leaves a gap, which pinches finger when firing.

    I only use GAP floorplates, not actual mag extensions, but have had to only install them on older style mags.

    I carry with a newer ambi-cut magazine, and keep a stock magazine floorplate installed.

    My long-winded way of saying "the ambi-cut mags are not flush fitting"

    Many don't like them for the G19 because they do not sit flush to the magwell.
    They seem to hang down 1/8" to about 3/16"

    Really? I have a few of those lying around, but never actually tried 'em. I guess now I'll have to. That sounds like it might be kinda annoying.

    Ed's Pawn has a deal right now through facebook. 5 mags for $100.00 + $5 shipping! Just call them, 770-474-6084, and tell them you want the facebook deal on Glock mags.

    Just to let you know it may not be the mag that is the problem. All 6 of my old style G19 mags I use on my G19 stick out a little bit. 770-474-6084-474-6084
