Default Glock 19

Those of you that own a glock 19 i was wondering if it was worth picking up and if i did get one a gen 3 or a gen 4? Is there a major difference between a gen 3 and a gen 4? Appreciate the advice

Loved my Gen 3.. If not for a trade offer I just couldn't pass I'd still own it, I even kept my 33 round Glock mag as I plan to own another. Had that gun a long time.
My brother in law has a Gen 4 which is also a great gun, I've shot it several times.

At first the Gen 4s had some issues. They've been worked out. No major difference between the two so if there is a price difference buy the cheaper one.
I carried a Gen 2 19 for a long time. Moved up to a 20.

Awesome either way,.. Shot gen one... Wife has gen 4 no problems... Definitely worth picking up... I got the 23 but getting myself a conversion kit for 9 mm cuz of the recoil and cheaper ammo

Of the 9mm Glocks I think the 19 is probably the best size for general purpose. Big enough to handle easily, aim accurately, and control recoil. Small enough for concealed carry when you're not in really hot weather.

I have a Gen 3. The gen 4 may be worthwhile if you really don't like the way a stock, Glock grip feels, or if you needed to flip the mag release for left handed use.

I like my G23 Gen 4 which is the same size as the G19 Gen 4. I don't mind the Gen 3 either. Handle both gens and choose the one you like best.

You can adjust the backstrap on a gen 4 to fit your hand and it has an ambidextrous mag release. Outside of that, no real functional difference between the two.

I have both Gen3 and Gen4 G19s. The Gen3 trigger seems smoother out of the box but the difference is fairly negligible. I have grown fond of the grip in the Gen4. Other than the minor changes in the magazine release and recoil spring, they are the same.

I havent handled the gen 4. As far as the gen 3 (19) goes, I have 2. Repeat customer says plenty.

I have both. I prefer the grip of the 4g. I'm not in tune enough with the guns to feel if the dual recoil spring makes a difference.
In my area, 4g's are $50 more expensive. If they are the same price, I'd take the 4g every time.
