    Where to Buy Glock Gen 4 Magazines?

    I tried to take advantage of the ambi mag release on the new Glock Gen 4 by switching it to the left side.

    Unfortunately, this makes it impossible to use any older magazines. I thought this probably wouldn't matter to me, as I don't have any Glock 9mm mags and could start fresh.

    However, it seems to be impossible for me to locate any true Generation Glock 4 magazines (with cuts on both left and right side). Does anyone know where to buy these?

    Contact lone wolf and see if they have the new 4th gen mags.

    Well it depends on what model you are buying for but CDNN had some great prices on Glock mags when I was in the market a few months ago. If you click on the factory magazines they all indicate that they are cut for the ambidextrous mags.

    Yeah, CDNN is pretty much unbeatable, as far as pricing on factory Glock mags.

    But one thing.........don't order until the weekend. Every weekend they do a shipping special and drop down their flat-rate shipping to $5.99 (sometimes $4.99) as opposed to the normal $9.99. Just a heads up.

    FWIW I bought some 17rd mags earlier this summer from CDNN & all the advice so far mirrors mine. Only caveat to add is when

    I called, specifically asked if they were ambi cut, they said yes & alas they were not. Not clear @ this point if they have acess to

    the Gen 4s, why not call Smyrna & ask if they are available w/ out buying the pistol?

    Thumbs up

    A guy on GlockTalk is selling ambi-cut G22 & G23 magazines, and at a good price too. In the pic, they have the cuts on both sides for the Gen 4 Glock mags. I also emailed him and confirmed they were. I just placed an order.

    I have not seen them anywhere else yet.

    I would be very careful about CDNN mags as their website is very confusing. At some point they listed some of Glock mags as Gen 4 and those were not set for mag reversal. Ask me how I know...
    Call them and verify first.

    Ordered the CDNN mags, they were not what I wanted. Their website is very confusing. I pointed out the mistake but they didn't seem interested in fixing the confusing labeling and instead justified it - though pointed out I was free to return them. Hopefully other customers don't waste their time and S&H costs.

    The "Gen 4" mags they are selling are NOT compatible with Gen 4 Glock Ambi-Cuts. Apparently they are still technically "Gen 4" mags according to Glock. The "ambi-cuts" are just a section cut out in the center, I guess for those ambi Glocks that had problems with their design and weren't too popular.

    So the "Gen 4 Ambi mags" are not for Gen 4 ambi Glocks...

    These ambi-cut mags on CDNN will still work with the Gen4 Glocks as long as you use the mag catch on the left side, correct?

    Add me to the list of people who bought "new ambi cut" 17 mags from CDNN. They're not gen 4. They don't work with the magazine catch reversed. I sent them a curt email asking them to clarify their description on the website and got no response. Probably won't order from CDNN again.

    I bought 2 from midway, which explicitly labels the mags as gen 4. They work with the magazine catch reversed.

    When I was looking for the Gen 4 mags, back in the summer the only place I found them was at Ed's Public Safety.

    As has been said, there is some confusion by dealers as to what is and what is not a Gen 4 mag so make sure you contact a dealer to ask. When I spoke with CDNN this past summer, they were advertising Gen 4 mags for sale but on the phone they explained it was not the same mag shipping with the Gen 4 pistols. -Perhaps that has changed now. Whatever the case, if there's any doubt, contact the seller to make sure you're both on the same page.

    Gen 4 Glock 17 and 22 mags were available before the guns. I'd recommend buy locally so you can verify that they are actually Gen 4 mags or buy them directly from Glock Inc.

    Has anyone tried the Asian Glock mags? I have not changed the mag release on my weapon. Just looking for a few extra mags at a good price.

    The locals I know who have tried them generally have had trouble with them when they put them through their paces.

    Good gear costs money. Stick with the factory mags.

    So to clarify, the ones currently from CDNN WILL work with the mag release switched to the right side for LH shooters such as myself??? I saw conflicting reviews about cdnn's "4th gen" mags elsewhere...
    Have you tried it with the LH release?

    Does anyone have a side by side photo showing the different magazines? What exactly is the difference between Gen 3 and the Gen 4?

    I'm just curious because I recently bought a Gen 3 Glock 19 and don't know if they are shipped with Gen 4 mags? From what I'm reading they might be Gen 4s????

    I buy my Gen 4 mags from Ed's Public Safety 5 for $100. I think if you have them shipped they charge $5 for flat rate shipping.
