Default glock 19

I just purchase a new glock 19 gen 3 about a month ago. At the time I didn't no much about glocks, i didn't no about the gen 4, but from most of what i have read most glock owners prefer the gen 3 over the gen 4. Did i get the better gun.

I actually prefer the gen 4. I like the grip and larger magazine release. The gen 3 will do great for you though.

I have a Gen3 19 and 26, and had a Gen4 17. Key word there was had. I never had the feeding and extraction issues that some have experienced, but there are some things about the Gen4 that I don't like. The two biggest ones are the grip texture and trigger.

Some people like the texture better though. The best thing to do is find a range near you that rents handguns, and rent a Gen4. Any range that rents guns and is worth their salt should have plenty of Glocks for rent.

I have had 2 gen4 19's. I did not like the grip texture and could have cared less about the back straps. Glock put the .40 guide rod assembly in their 19's and caused fte issues. Took them forever to send me 2 correct ones and shortly there after I sold both being pissed at Glock. I had my fun with other toys and messed with 1911's for a minute and then got to missing capacity and light weight. Bought gen 3's in 26 19 and 17. Not a single problem with any. There is a reason they still make the gen3 IMO. Just my experience not saying all gen 4 are bad or have issues.

Gen 3 all the way. You can't beat it.

I have a gen 4 19 and gen3 17. I like the grip of the 19 better and I had my first FTF in 1300+ rounds (mostly reloads) which was a stovepipe. The gen4 reliability issues are long gone. If you don't like the gen4 grip, gen 3 will do just fine.

Cant go wrong with either one. Gen4 comes with an extra mag. So basically the price is about the same.

I have a Gen 2, Gen 3 and Gen 4. My favorite is my Gen 4 G23 which is the same form factor as the G19.

I wouldn't say you got the better gun but nothing wrong with the Gen 3, I'm not getting rid of my older Glocks.
