Yeah, the Gen 3's have a rough texture on the grips. I have a G26G4 and I put Talon grips on mine cause I prefer the rough texture of the Gen 3's over the Gen 4's, but the ergonomics of the grip of the Gen 4 fits my hand better than the Gen 3, which is one of the other changes of the Gen 4 over the Gen 3. I think they also improved the recoil spring in the Gen 4's.Welcome to the forum clay. go on over to introduce yourself section and post there so you can get a welcome to the forum lol. back to your question no there isnt a big difference, other than it has a different finish on the grip of the gun. its like a speckle on my G23 Gen 4. if im wrong someone will tell me lol
Same type of spring (being the dual spring) but the Gen 4 one is a bit differentThere is no difference in the recoil spring assembly on the Gen4 G27 or G26, they are still the same as the Gen 3 guns. The adjustable backstrap and the grip texture are the only differences.
Definitely. I bought one factory new in the box in January of this year. Test fire envelope in the box said it was fired in the factory 5-26-11. I also read an article some where that said glock has no plans of halting production of gen 3 weapons.mikecu said:Are the 3rd generation Glocks still being manufactured?
