Whats the difference between the red and blue label on the Glock Box?
Just bought a new GLOCK 32 and the label was red............Mags were high capacity!
All of mine came in red label boxes, and are all high capacity. Perhaps somebody who lives in a capacity restricted state can chime in here, and confirm that blue label is low capacity mags included.
I believe that the blue label are LEO issue.
That is correct. They are for Military, LEO and EMT's. The average price for a Blue Label Glock is $398
What is the difference if any?
Just the color code so they can keep the Law Enforcement inventory separate from the general public inventory.
And I just recently read that this discounted blue label now applies to licensed pilots. In general it covers all first responders - military (active & retired).
From the people I know that have purchased blue box - they have 3 mags instead of the usual 2 - everything else the same - I don't know if they 3 mags applies to every model or not for the blue box.
As Brassmonkey said, the red label were LEO (law-enforcement only), made during the asssault weapons ban and sold at a discount by distributors. Now that they are legal (the only difference was the hi-cap mags), they sell interchangably with other non-LEO boxes. Blue label I haven't seen...
"Blue guns" are available to military and LEO's only. No difference in the guns or mags (if you're in a free state). They are controlled due to pricing and inventory.
This might help you out for any one still searching for this i know this is a very very old post
Old post, so this may be a moot point now.
I just bought two Gen 4s. One had a red label, one had a white label. The contents were identical, as was the (awesome gun show) price.
Blue= LEO (now also public service)
Red= Gen population
The labels have nothing to do with capcity of magazines however if you buy Gen3 Glocks in compact and full size, the red labels have 2 mags while the blue have 3. All Gen3 sub-compacts only come with2 mags regardless of label. The Gen4's now all have 3 mags. Each gun store has had their blue labels seperate to meet immediate needs to LEO's.
I have a blue label it came with 3 15 round magazines a g-22 and with night sights and bought it from a leo dealer.
