I'd say your 17A looks a little different than my G17s.. Wink

Nope. Love the gen 4's.
The only gen 3 I shoot actively is the 26 I carry regularly.

I'm happy I traded a new Gen 4 G22 for a new Gen 3 G22.
I don't like the Gen 4 grip texture.
But the guy I traded with wanted the Gen 4 grip texture.





I need something to run my G31 barrel in.. Big Grin

Not at all. The Gen 4 has several significant advantages over the Gen 3, and no disadvantages.

Never had a Gen3 to trade in. However, the Gen3 grip kept me from buying a Glock for years...until the Gen4. Didn't know about the SF at the time.

I use the Gen4 G19 & G34 without any straps. Fits my hand perfectly. I played with GripForce and all the back straps. Ended up naked.

Same. The included beavertails for the back strap/grip make all the difference in the pistol to some of us. I like the grip texture as well. All gen 4's here.

Price.

The gen 4 has no advantage to me.

Price.


The Gen 4 is ~$40 more than a Gen 3. But you get one extra magazine with the Gen 4s, which is worth ~$30. (Gen 3s come with 2x mags while Gen 4s come with 3x mags.)

So price is basically a wash.

Superior grip texture.
Better magazine release.
Improved recoil spring.
Modular backstraps.

You may not see those as advantages, but there are plenty of folks who do.

TGS $540 versus $500? Net out the Gen4 third mag at $25. Big deal - $15 difference.

The grip texture is objective and I don't like it.
I don't want a grip texture that will wear holes into my clothing.

Modular backstraps also objective.
I don't want 'pin on' backstraps on any of my firearms.

But I'm stuck in the group that favors Gen 2 Glocks without finger grooves at all.







And a smooth finger textured G26..



Obviously, YMMV. Big Grin

I can understand not liking the texture, but I've been carrying a Gen 4 regularly since shortly after they came out (~6 years), and I have yet to wear any holes in my clothing.

I don't recall hearing about that complaint before with the Gen 4s, though I've seen it mentioned regarding the more aggressively textured RTF2 Gen 3s.

I have to agree, before the Gen 4, I wasn't interested on owning a Glock, they felt like holding a brick, the Gen 4 isn't like that, and fits my hand better and allows me to be a much better shot, both first shot and follow up shots, for me Gen 4 format is worth the extra money spent, so because of the Gen 4's, I now own 4

Count me in the nope category. I have a gen2 19 and gen 3 34. The gen4's fit my hand like they used my hand as a model. The smaller diameter alone makes me prefer this generation. The bigger and to me better mag release is a bonus.

I know that gen2's seem like the perfect glock to many but I shoot my gen4's better and they fit better for me.

I have 4 glocks now. I love the fact you can easily covert the 40's to 9mm. I have owned several gen 4 and can say they do offer a different recoil impulse but Im sticking with the gen 3's because thats what I shoot the best. Yes I still have my xd's, sigs, and hk's but you can not beat a glock out of the box, period!

I carry a gen 4 (43, 26, 19, or 17) everyday, iwb, and it certainly isn't unpleasant. No damage to any clothing either.

I like and own a first gen 17 and two second gen 19's, but they bring nothing to the table over my gen 4 19, other than no finger bumps, of which I'm not sure I really care about anymore. I've now carried every generation of Glock, including a G22 RTF2 and an LAV RTF2. The gen 4 is what I carry now, and the others live in the safe. Haven't worn any holes in my clothes, either.

I have a Gen4 G20 now, and I see a 17/19/26 Gen4 on my 'eventually' list as well. Though, if I can get my hands on a 17M and 19M, I'd certainly be interested in those. But the question is whether I want to wait that long.
