    I have a Model 22 Gen 2. Is it worth considering an upgrade to a newer version? Any internal changes that make it worth while other than just the change in looks and grip?

    The only real difference I see in the newer versions is the accessory rail.
    I'm on the search for a gen 2 glock 20 for an upgrade from my gen 2 glock 19.

    Only changes are the rail and the finger grooves on the grip, same internals. The preference is up to you

    Haha,

    This is why I was thinking this...I saw this video
    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_yaGPsPl0L8[/ame]

    I haven't shot a Gen 4...hell I have only shot 1 glock 1 time. I haven't even shot the one I just bought for my gal yet.

    Edit: Ok so I have shot a Gen 4. But I haven't shot anything else to compare it to.

    Man, I do need to go to sleep. I am losing my mind.

    lol I never said the video was accurate. It is just something that popped up in the side bar...it was the inspiration for my question.

    And since I can't pet the elephant I think I'm off to bed...another long day of work tomorrow.

    The Gen 4 G22 also has the different blackstrap sizes and improved recoil spring, but no, no need to upgrade a Gen 2 unless you don't like it. Well there were problems with some frames with serial numbers starting with E but Glock will replace them.

    I have no issues with the gen 2. I guess it ain't broke so I won't fix it.
