I tried that......
Although the increase in girth, was unacceptable to me.
It made the whole grip too thick for my liking..
I'll just stick with my Gen 2s and when I find one, a Gen 1 G17..

Of course you do!
You asking about buying one of the greatest guns out there from one of the best sellers out there. How can you say no?
I have a 2nd gen 19 and it really is the perfect carry pistol for someone with large hands. I'd love to find another in good shape at a sane price.
It sure "felt" like the 4th gen had smaller grooves or slightly more space between the bottom of the trigger guard and the first finger groove.
The store didn't have a 3rd gen so I couldn't do a side by side. I will do a side by side at some point in the future. A 3rd gen 19 is a complete no-go for my hands. The 4th felt like it could work.
An opinion without personal experience is just wishful thinking.
Totally agree with the op! a glock is like an old turtable- sure there are better ones, but that old one can still play.
had a gen2 years ago only to replace it with walthers ,khars ,hks, m&ps, rugers.last year i reacquired a few of the gen4s- 19,17,34 and a 26... but presently,they are safe queens.
it seems that i went all the way to the sig end....

Well as I follow this thread it is interesting what it's done to me. I came to this forum after buying a Tacops 9, and said I would never buy a Glock, ever. I never even look at them. BUT, I ran into a kel-tec Sub 2000 in .40, it used Glock mags. This got me to look Glocks, and I found that the Gen 4 fit my hand very well and I could manipulate all the controls more easily then other pistols. So I bought a Gen 4 23. It is a great pistol and very fun to shoot with the Kel-tec Sub 2000 carbine using the the 22 round mags in both the Gen 4 23 and the carbine. Currently the Tacops 9 is still sitting new, unfired and possibly going up for sale, as I find the Glock Gen 4 just fits my hand so much better. I guess will see.
I'll say it again.
A dremel tool and a soldering iron turns that 3rd gen into a 2nd gen pretty quick.

I have owned a Glock 30 for years and have never been able to warm up to it. There is nothing wrong with the gun. It shoots well. No problems at all. Polymer guns just don't do it for me. I am going to sell it and my Kahr PM45, and I'll be done with plastic guns. Good luck to all.
But you did buy one..
At least you gave it the old college try...

I've got the itch so bad. Waiting for Steve's (220ST) reply is excruciating. Anyone have pics of a Gen 4 in FDE, preferably a 19? I need a gun porn tease.

My GF's Glock, protection with one other level of protection. This is the one I helped her buy, by spending enough time to figure out what she liked in her hand, shooting a variety of calibers, makes, and models, and then finally looking at price and availability of components. She loves my Sigs, but she really likes Glocks for a variety of reasons.

Picked up a nice used G23 Gen4 with night sights for $ 425.00.

In my search for a Gen 2 G19;
Found a Gen 2 G19 on Texasguntrader.com today.
Sent the guy a message, told him I'd give him his asking price and I would meet him halfway Saturday morning to make the sale.
Never heard back from him...
Going to a gun show in Mesquite in the morning and see if I can find one...
Slide and barrel will be sent to CCR for CPII if I do...
I find it odd as I make my way thru this and that gun model and make for the last 18 years, the guns I want now are older and hard to find.
Gen 1 and 2 Glocks and West German Sigs... This message has been edited. Last edited by: 1lowlife,
badcopnodonut - Go ahead and give in on the Gen 4 17. I didn't like Glocks...until the Gen4 G17 fit perfectly into my hand. Now, I shoot that gun best..by far! You'll love the Gen 4 17. Unlike some posters, I haven't had any issues with my Glock.

Hey, you gave a renowned, quality pistol a fair try and found it didn't work for you. I did the same. Gave the 229 all the try I could give it and I still can't shoot either of my 229's as well as I can shoot just about any other pistol I pick up, and that's after having one of them totally customized, which has a fantastic trigger. I figure at this point, I'm swapping a reputable German manufacture pistol for a reputable Austrian manufacture pistol.
For all intents and purposes, the only appreciable difference is how I shoot it. That happens to be all the difference in the world to me, and worth dropping everything I love about the 229 (literally everything but how I shoot it) for the Glock, for which the only thing I love about it is how I shoot it. My thinking is that while it's a poor workman who blames his tools, it's a still poorer workman who eschews the best tool for the job after seeing the results. At least, that's what's become my conclusion while trying to sort this out for myself. If the Glock wasn't the tool for you, move on and find the right one.
Jeeze parabellum some things are best kept private. Your obsession should be made in a confession to a white collared person or someone who keeps a white jacket handy. I'd suggest Francine take out a 'Restraining Order' to let the poor dear be free of your late night antics.
I have a variety of pistols, this Glock 23 being among them. It is reliable and tweaked to suit my needs. Is it perfection? No, but it's darn close.
