    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?

    The slide lock lever cannot be switched to the other side.

    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?

    Gen 4, why go with the older design? And the 4 comes with an extra mag.

    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...

    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
