I have an old (first generation, I believe) Glock 19. Does anyone know if the current new magazines (generation 4 and 5) will work in the older pistols? CDNN is offering the new magazines at an attractive price, and am considering picking up a few. Thanks.

There were no Gen 1 G19, most likely a Gen 2 (below photo Gen 1 on the bottom thru Gen 5 on the top) The answer to your question is yes newer Glock mags will work in older Glocks.

Arent the gen5 baseplates different? I know 4 and below will work, only difference is that rhey are cut in both sides for the mag catch.
I think what you are referring to the G19X as originally done for the military had that stupid tit on the front mag well and the even dumber duck bill mag plates to accommodate. That should not be the case with "regular" Gen5 guns and won't apply to the OP.

If other companies made guns that took Glock mags I might buy one. Not because Glocks are best.. or Glock mags are best.. it’s just simple. I have more Glock 17 mags than anything else.. they fit just about all of my handguns.

and plenty of AR PCC take Glock mags...
