I had a gen 4 19. The dual coil spring got locked up through the guide rod hole and nearly permanently locked the slide back. It took a lot of beating and prying to get it loose and I ended up deforming the recoil spring. After paying $40 to have it replaced, I traded it in on a different gun. Not sure if this is a common problem with the gen 4's but it happened to me. Kindof ruined my own little glock experience.

Get the gen 4 so you can adjust the back strap of the grip to the size of your hand.

I would just take your current gun to the range on a Saturday and shoot a gen 3 or 4 a few times. No one has ever told me no when I asked to try their gun. Even total strangers - they just shoot my gun a few times.
