What's the difference between hi cap mags and srandard?

I'll try to just answer your question, and not get into a nomenclature discussion.   In Glock models that offer mags that hold more than 10 rounds, the restricted mags (Klintonistas) for that model have ribs molded into the steel liner's sidewalls.  It's just about impossible to remove the ribs without destroying the mags.

more than 10 rounds = hi cap
holds 10 rounds or less = hi cap

am i right?

They're the same.  Standard capacity is the normal capacity the magazine was originally designed for.  In most cases, this is more than 10 rounds, so these are also known as "high capacity", a term invented by politicians over a decade ago.

On the subcompact Glocks (26, 27, etc) standard capacity is 9 or 10 rounds, so "high cap" doesn't apply to these magazines.
