    Hey guys. I am looking at getting a 21 but I am not sure if I should get a gen3 or gen4. Leaning to the gen4.

    Both are a great choice, depends on which grip texture you like. The Gen 4 is a little more in price, but it comes with 3 mags. Has the adjustable back strap to help the fit.I prefer the feel of the Gen 3 myself.

    I'm a big fan of the Gen4's. I had a Gen 3 21SF and loved it. I can only imagine how much more I would love the Gen4 21.

    I ordered a 4th gen since i have two third gen glocks. figured for the same price why not try a slightly new design, with interchangeable backstraps and a more durbale recoil spring ive heard nothing but good things about them

    Welcome to the Glock Forum 19TeXaS73 !!

    Gen 3's rock...Gen 4 is good if you need to fit your grip to your hand, or

    if you are a lefty... ( just my 2 cents )

    I was at 3 stores today that all carry Glock.....when I asked to see a gen4 21 none of them had one...one place was like thats kinda of a specialty thing...really....no love for the 21

    Its not no love, its that they are hard to keep in stock lol.

    I'll add my vote for Gen4, I've shot one, its a mean gun with nice recoil.

    Though I can say I am not super crazy about the new texture I can say the new mag release is a great improvement.

    In saying that I would still recommend a gen 4 gun.

    Just my 0.02$
