    Color of Box?


    I see mention in threads of a certain color of box, blue, red, green. I know you mean the Glock label on the box, but what do the different colors mean?

    Blue label is Law Enforcement/military, Red is regular civilian purchase I believe. Never seen Green. Maybe it means earth friendly!!

    Blue Labels are LE, and I believe the white label is civilian 10 rounds or less and red labels are civilian more than 10 rounds.

    Here's what I have received from dealers:

    G17 Gen4 Retail : Red label
    G34 Gen3 Retail : Red label
    G34 Gen3 through GSSF : Blue label
    G22 Gen4 Retail : Blue label

    I'm not LE, although I do belong to GSSF. I think that the dealer that sold me the G34 with the Blue label selected it from a stack of inventory that they set aside for LE, GSSF, and military. I have NO explanation for the G22 arriving in a Blue labeled box, that came through regular retail channels. This makes me think that the label color is used by dealers in some sort of priority or allocation scheme, but doesn't have much meaning for customers, at least not in terms of who can buy a particular pistol.

    NetTech's case has a white label - it's a .40 cal 10 round mag. Mine is a red (well it looks pink) label and it's a 9 mm 15 round mag.
