Gen 4 has a double captive main spring and a larger mag release button. Individual feelings about Gen 4 vs 3 are inconsistent. Glock says the spring in Gen 4 will last longer and will not be lost during field stripping. I own both a 3 and a 4 and score exactly the same. My opinion, get a 4 because of the tougher spring assembly and the adjustable grip.

I have a Gen 3 - the Gen 4 has a more textured grip that I really like. Would be great if the gun was wet or slick. Also the backstraps are adjustable for bigger hands. Cant go wrong with either one. Generally I've the Gen 3 are about $80-$100 cheaper

Bought my first glocks within. The past week, a 32c and a 26. Both are Gen 3 and basically brand new. I paid less than $300 a piece for them so thats the only reason I got Gen 3. If I could get a Gen 4 for the same price as a Gen 3 i would go with that

My personal feeling, is gen 3 used, is the way to go, if you can find a low cycle one.

The finish on gen 2 and early 3 models is outstanding for protection of the gun. Later 3 and 4 models report some rusting issues if you read Glock forums.

Thanks man! I wasnt sure how much I was going to like the 357 sig with it being hard to find and expensive but its a great shooter and the 26 is well a 26. Conceals great and shoots better

I have had a G19 since 2005, and it has been perfect in every way...only did a few things to it...extended mag release and slide stop....chrome pin kit,
extended Lone Wolf barrel, so I can shoot reloads...and 3.5 Ghost trigger connector with NY1 trigger spring. Done....no more stuff...shoots great.

I'm a lefty and G4 is the way to go for me. Changeable back straps ensure it will fit your hand.
