Am going to buy a glock 17 wanted to know wut is the difference between the gen 3 and gen 4.plzz and ty
The Gen 4 has a different textured grip, a shorter frame(the distance from where the grip fits against the thumb to the trigger. It comes with 3 different backstraps that can be attached if needed.) Larger ambi mag release, improved recoil spring assembly and "Gen 4" stamped on the slide. I own a G26 Gen4 and I love it! Not knocking the Gen 3, cause I've heard really good feedback on them, but what sold me on the Gen 4 was the short frame. It fits my hand better than the Gen 3. However, I do like the grip texture on the Gen 3 better, so I put some Talon grips in mine. Also, if you go with Gen 4 and you buy it new, you should get 3 mags instead if 2. The Gen 4 usually costs about $50 more. You really can't go wrong either way! I mean, it's a Glock! Perfection either way!

I'm in CA also and you are right, the Gen4s are not NORMALLY sold in CA. But you find a gun shop that does Single Shot Exemption (SSE). Do a search on 'calguns' and SSE. If you want the Gen4, there are ways around it.antek said:I'm picking up my Gen 3 17 on Sunday. They don't sell gen 4's in Cali...
