I memory serves, first generation glock mags were polymer with NO steel lining. They had issues with not dropping free I believe, which may be why they went to the full metal lined ones. But yea, if it ain't polymer with a full metal lining, it ain't a glock unit. Now their are other makers out there making full metal lined mags, but those will not have the Glock logo on the rear.

The dropping free issue was really designed that way. Some of the euro countries preferred to have to yank on the mag to reload. I had one of the first gen glocks. The mag would pop loose from the release and drop about a 1/4", but you had to pull it out to reload. And a steel mag being jammed into the plastic frame isn't the thing to do. The plastic mag catch takes a beating and the frame gets galled. Gaston got it right and never made a steel mag for a reason.

I wonder what Blue means in the discription?

I just ordered two of them for my G17 and they are Glock factory mags. The packing slip I got did say "Blue" in the description, but they are the latest gen Glock mags and not steel aftermarkets AFAIK.
