Hello I'm a first time gun owner I love the 26. Any opinion on which one? Gen 3 or 4 ?

In the 26 models the only change from gen 3-4 is the bigger mag release and slightly slimmer grip also the stippling on the plastic. I would opt for gen 4 IMO but depends on price too if you like the gen 3

Whichever one is in stock haha, they will be nearly identical as already stated.

I prefer the gen 4 because of being left handed. I can switch the mag release!

With the gen 4 can the slide release be switched to either side like the mag release?

As previous stated you can't go wrong either way. I think the deciding factor iDisk the mag release. Do you like a thinner or thicker release?

I have owned both GEN 3 & 4. And I have to say I prefer the GEN 4's. All GEN 4's without the back strap on are SF MODELS.

I do however like the texture of the GEN 3 grip over the GEN 4 grip. But a Talon decal grip tape/rubber will take care of that easy.

Either way you go is good. I mean it's a GLOCK right? :)

Have G4 and G3 s and love em both depends on stock price and willingness to order... For my on my latest had to do with stock as I was using GSSF discount coupon and the G26G4 was out of stock... So got the G3 very happy with it as I am with my G17G4. I may order the large mag release... Not sure just yet...

Gen 4, why go with the older design? And the 4 comes with an extra mag.
Extra mag at a cost of 50 bucks... Price dif without blue label ... G4 $549 G3 499 the back straps are useless if you get laser grips as I do... Like the larger mag release on 17G4 but do not mind smaller one on my G3's, the one on my 19C is good, the one on 26 is a bit stiff will see after a few 100 rounds and mag exchanges...

I got the Gen 4 it already had updated recoil spring but if you buy it and have ejections towards your face have them just tune your ejector saves you time and hassle that I had 2 go through
