I thought I would post, because I thought it was odd, but not a huge deal. I ordered a G30 through my local gun shop. I took advantage of the LEO offer Glock has, as I am a full time LEO. I received my Glock with the blue label on the box. According to the serial # it should be a white label with fixed sights. I received the gun with Glock night sights as ordered, but it cam with the LE blue label. According to the info I was provided on another site, it lists a serial prefix of ZYY and I have a Glock with a prefix of ZNA. Any ideas? Not a big deal as I was just curious.

Thanks in advance,

Scott

I'm not quite understanding. Are you saying the SN on the gun doesn't match the SN on the box?

EDIT: If you are referring to the SN thread on GlockTalk that info is all submitted by users IIRC and prob shouldn't be held as the Gospel.

I read it as the serial numbers match but the serial number itself points to a non-blue labeled firearm.

VolGrad, Yes, I was referring to Glock Talk, but as you pointed out it shouldn't be held as gospel accurate. I just found it odd. Anyway, I really like my G30. I have carried the G21 since it was the 1st generation and now am carrying the 3rd. For 16+ years now. The funny thing is, I have never been a real big fan of carrying the Glock on duty, as it feels like a block of wood in my hand, but I shoot above average consistently with it. It truly does serve the purpose it was designed for very well. Plus, if it's good enough for Nancy Pelosi, it's good enough for me ;). That was sarcasm BTW...

Cheers

s/n's dont show anything but date of mfg with 3 letters, though some might have an le/gov't tie in.

blue labels are ex-le trade-ins or what you get if you qualify for the le discount.

i've got a 22 23 and 30 with blue labels and none of the s/n letters reference any le agency in the list.

when i got the 30, it was advertised on backpage as an le 30.
in an email exchange i asked if it was an le trade-in and he replied that he was with phx pd and mentioned that he wore it in an ankle holster when we made the exchange.

i had the 27 on my hip, iwb when i bought the 30.

I don't see it in the list for GSSF members can purchase one GLOCK at blue label pricing per year and armorers can purchase two more a year if I'm not mistaken. You can become an armorer after signing up with GSSF and becoming a member so that would be three blue label guns per year!

what hat are you pulling this info from that the s/n determines the label?
what's in the box and who can buy it whether, le/gov't or commercial determines the label.

folks have posted here that gssf doesn't always get the le discount, that it was up to the dealer to give the discount.

I'm not pulling anything out of any hat. I stated that the information I posted in your quote was how I read the OPs original post. It was directed at Volgrad who was unsure of the OPs post and asked if the gun's serial did not match the box's serial number.

AS to the GSSF price and all that, while you or someone else may have posted that they do not have to give the discount (not a LE discount but a GSSF discount that is similar to the LE discount) please read the following which is directly from the GSSF website;

Dealer Responsibilities
1. Look at member's card and make sure they are a current GSSF member. If member does not have a current
membership card, they will need to contact GSSF to obtain one.
2. Make a copy of member's card to file with other required paperwork from the sale of the pistol.
3. Sell the member the pistol from stock at suggested Sub-Distributor Price.

http://www.gssfonline.com/2010_The_GLOCK_Report.pdf

It is a requirement of the Dealer to sell the firearm at the suggested sub-dealer price or they are in violation of the GSSF Dealer agreement. This is not to say that the dealer may or may not choose to ignore that requirement, but there is a requirement in place.

please post/explain how you determined by s/n, it/30 should have been a white label with fixed sights.

these are the blue labels/although faded on my 22, 23 and 30. 22 with gns/glock, 23 with tns/trijicon
note: 22 and 23 both say 3 hi-cap mags, 30 says 2 10 rds.

hi-caps come with full and mid size glocks, subs 26, 27, 30, ..........are 10 or less.

if you question this, with your dealer/shop, play like interested in a 17, 19, 22, 23, 21 and see if the box shows 3 hi-caps.

does your label say 2 10 rds?, which you qualified to buy with le discount and why you see the blue label.
i did get 3 10 rd mags with the 30 i purchased.

He already stated that he got his information form another GLOCK forum, and he was also informed that he should not take that information as gospel.

i directed post #12 to the op, unless you're holding his power of attorney, let him reply.
and I pointed out that you obviously haven't read the entire thread as he has already answered your question. Since I'm not answering for him, but rather pointing out that you should take the time to read the entire thread that you seem so adamant about posting on, I think I'll continue posting as I please. Thanks. :)

Don't you hate it when the gun shop opens your Glock before you get there and they use a dull knife that tears the label... That happened to one of mine, too...

no he hasn't, he still thinks he should have gotten a white label.

he got a blue label box and doesn't know why even though he 'splained he got an le discount.
The Op stated " I took advantage of the LEO offer Glock has, as I am a full time LEO. I received my Glock with the blue label on the box. According to the serial # it should be a white label with fixed sights. I received the gun with Glock night sights as ordered, but it cam with the LE blue label."

So, since he is a LEO, he took advantage of the discount that GLOCK offers and purchased a BLUE LABEL gun. He then went to GLOCKT#$^.com and researched his serial number on some thread of there. Based on the information he received over there on the other site, he was informed that his serial number pointed to a WHITE LABEL gun, not the BLUE LABEL gun he had purchased and had in his possession. He also goes on to say that the other sight stated his gun should have come with fixed sights, but instead, came with night sights just as he had ordered.

So to recap, he has what he ordered. It's a blue label gun and has night sights. He went to a website and looked up his serial number and the information he received back was contradictory to what he actually had and this was slightly confusing to him but he stated that in the end it really didn't matter. Finally, he was informed that he should not take the information that he received from that website as gospel as it is often incorrect.

Hopefully this will clear things up for you. :)

Sorry if I inadvertently caused problems by starting this thread. I just was pointing out my purchase experience and that my new unused G30 ser # according to the other site, was suppose to be a white label, but I was advised that it wasn't necessarily gospel accurate. I look forward to posting and reading all the great information on this site. It's funny, because I have been shooting and carrying a Glock for so many years for my job, but never really did any research on the gun. Just qualified with it monthly, cleaned it, etc.
