Either are great. Gen 3 parts are more available

Personally I prefer all glock generations EXCEPT for gen4.



The previous generations have a great track record for being reliable trouble free firearms, the gen4 has had issues since its introduction. I prefer any of the previous generations and avoid gen4. Just my opinion, I have had zero malfunctions on my Glocks.

I like the gen 4 a lot. I have over 5,000 rounds out of my gen 4 17 with no complaints.

I own G19 Gen 4 and G26 Gen 3. I prefer Gen 4 and comes with 3 mags rather than 2, which means a little bit difference in price. Anyway you can't go wrong with both.

I own a gen4 G21. Never a malfunction. About only 1k rounds through it just because of .45acp ammo price. But I trust it with my life. No backstrap added and the hogue grip on it. Fits perfect. Can't go wrong with any IMO.

Either one is a great choice, I have a Gen4 23 and love it had no problems with it at all, after 2000 or so rounds, also have a Gen3 27, and its been flawless as well, just depends on what you want, either way its still a Glock and thats all that matters....

Im new to glock and had a friend interested and asked about which is better and what some differences are between gen 3&4. I have a gen 3 27 and love it as well. After research and your alls opinions i feel that for the price difference included that the gen 3 for now is the best buy.
