Are gen 4 glocks just as reliable as a gen 3s?
I heard somethin about the gen 4 having a recall and the gen 3s are more reliable what are the diffrences other than grip texture? Are the internals the same? If a part on my gen 3 broke can I interchange it with a gen 4 part? Please give me more knowledge on this. :)

There was a recoil spring recall which some people never had a problem with and as far as the differences here you go:

The gen 4 has a slightly different trigger group that adds about a pound and a half to the pull. You can change them out with older models. My gen 2 has a gen 4 trigger group in it (not by choice). I haven't heard about any other issues.

Lol same time man.

Glock has already fixed that issue with the recoil spring. So you are good. And besides the dual recoil spring being different the gen 4 has bigger mag release, and ambidextrous.

Yep. The Gen 4 fixed it's issues and mine is left-handed.

I have a gen 4 17 I put 2000 rounds in it so far no problem what so ever

I've also heard the large spring slipping over the smaller one on the gen 4 2 piece guide rod/ spring assbly.

There are many issues with gen 4 that idk y glock did what they did if it's not broke don't fix it but I made a thread on gen 4 issues where I stated every issue I could look up and find from all over...
