I got the G17 Gen 4. My wife liked the way Gen 4 handled over the Gen 3. I have never been much of a Glock fan but the G17 has been very good in accuracy but a little problem with stove piping. I have been taking it to the fun matches of late. I'll take care of teh stove piping issue next weekend with the Glock smith.

I like everything about the gen 4s but I have heard bad things about stovepiping. But... My research inidcates that it happens only with weak rounds such as an occasional light load in cheap bulk ammo... But Idk that's just what I gathered. If that's the case then its no big deal...

I went with the gen 4.. I shot both and I really like the feel of it. And on top you get 3 mags instead of 2.

Think maybe hand size has something to do w/decision which is a way has alread been covered above...I have a G23 and G26 3rd gen and am thinking of trading my G23 for a 4 Gen 19 to standize calibers and work with my small fat hands.

I just haven't warmed up to the grips of the gen 4 yet, aas far as looks or feel. I have not had a problem out of my gen 3 so I don't feel the need for the gen 4. I shoot my FIL's gen 1 and gen 2 Glocks every now and then and they feel quite different to me but shoot fine.

I got the Gen 4 because the grip was just about right. Slapped on a Hogue sleeve and now I'm good in cc holster, sweaty, wet, or ultra dry conditions. My Glock is my rod and it comforts me.

I have a G4 G19. It is a better fit for me and has been perfectly reliable.

I have both GEN 4's a 23 & a 27 both guns have been flawless. Just over 800 rounds & no issues.

I prefer using them with no back straps fits my hand like a glove.

I have also owned GEN 2's & GEN 3's either way they are all good guns to have. The GEN 4's with out the back straps are just like the SF models. So I f you like the GEN 3 better see if you can get 1 as a SF. Just a thought??
