    Oddball G17 Magazine?

    So my oldest daughter recently got hitched and I bought her & my new son-in-law their very own Glock - cause that's how I roll

    Ended up getting a Gen2 G17 police trade in for $360. It was in good condition and works like you would expect it to - without a hitch.

    When I was walking through field stripping with my SIL, I noticed the magazine (factory, marked "LE use only") has 18 labeled holes in it! I've never seen, nor heard of that before. I know many can fit 18 rounds into a stock G17 mag, but this one is actually made to hold 18.

    Anyone ever seen one of these before?
    i might know something

    the le mags may cause problems for a non leo. i would give the mags to a leo or return them and buy new ones. as far as the 18 rd mag you know your probably going to have to call glock. not to bore you with stories but i had a smith with leo marked mags which was ok for me because i was a leo and when i sold it i bought new unmarked mags for the gun for fear that a over zealous leo might make a big deal of it or if you shoot someone with them you can bet your life some lawyer will make a big deal out of it also.

    They're legal for me to own as they were traded in by the agency, I was just surprised to see a mag marked for 18 rounds :-)

    Now that the Clinton ban on mags over 10 rounds is over I am under the impression it is OK for civilians to own the LE Only marked mags.

    ^ Yup, Now that the ban is over you can purchase what are called Pre-Ban Hi-Cap mags. These would have been marked "LEO only". They are still made that way but most Hi-Cap mags don't have any markings for most of us. As for the 18 round capacity marking, I haven't seen that although it will hold 18 rounds.

    I had heard of them, but haven't owned any...



    Glock softly and leave your big stick at home...

    over 10 may be the case where you live but not in mass, 10 is still the limit for all non leos. point i am trying to make for the price of the mags why take a chance on being checked by someone who is not familar with the law and right or wrong will question the le only markings.

    Understand.

    I'm blessed to live in an area though where they'd probably offer to buy it if they ever saw it :-)
