Yes, Gen 5 Glock magazines will work in Gen 3 Glock pistols. However, there are some important things to keep in mind when using different generation magazines in different generation firearms.

First and foremost, always check the manufacturer’s recommendations for compatibility between different generations of firearms and accessories. There may be some specific functions or features that are only available with certain generation firearm/accessory combinations.

In general, however, as long as you’re using the same caliber of ammunition and magazine, there is no reason why different generation magazines can’t be used in different generation firearms. Just be aware of any potential differences in fit or function between generations, and always consult the manufacturer’s recommendations before making any changes to your gear.

Glock Gen 5 magazines will work in all Glock Gen 3 pistols.

Glock introduced the fifth generation of their pistol model line. This newest generation includes some major changes, the most obvious of which is the new grip design. Glock has also made some minor changes to the magazine, and as a result, Gen 5 magazines will not work in older models. However, all Glock Gen 3 pistols will still accept Gen 5 magazines. So if you’ve recently upgraded to a Gen 5 pistol, don’t worry – you can still use your old magazines!

Yes. Gen 5 Glock mags will work in gen 3 Glock pistols. However, it’s important to keep in mind that not all Glock mags are created equal. There are a lot of knock-off Glock mags on the market, and many of them are not built to the same high standards as genuine Glock mags. So always make sure you’re using genuine Glock magazines if you want the best performance and reliability from your pistol.

Yes. Gen 5 Glock magazines will work in gen 3 Glock pistols. However, there are some compatibility issues with certain models. For example, the Gen 5 magazine won’t work in the older generation’s subcompact model (G26). But it will work in all other models (G17, G19, etc.). So it depends on which model of Glock you have.
