    It seems like with a gen4,you are paying more for the same gun.I will be buying a model22 within a week.just wanted to know if the 4 was worth the extra cash

    Welcome to the Glock Forum kulok77 !!

    Personal preference in my opinion...
     

  3. Most that have Gen4's IMO are buying them for the newer smaller grips{that why I've bought several of them now}. Also they come with three magazines instead of two. So if you consider the extra mag, the cost kind of off sets itself.

    My gen 3 came wit 3 mags also. Few minor issues with gen 4 but the choice is urs. I swapped mine for gen 3.... It's FLAWLESS.
     
  5. In most instances the Gen3's only come with two.:cool:

    If your getting blue label they are same price. Both come with 3 mags. The red label comes with 2 mags for gen 3 and 3 for gen 4. The only price different should be for the extra mag. So maybe 20-25 more. Hold both and if you can shoot both. The slimmer grip might make a world of difference for you.

    Blue label are the flicks they sell to law enforcement at a discounted price. Or if you get a 2 yr membership to GSSF you can buy at the discounted price

  15. I got my Gen4 $60 cheaper then the Gen3. So far me it was worth it.

    I chose the gen 3 (model 23).

    The extra mag with the gen 4 was not a big deal and the grip on the gen3 was fine. I used the money I saved to buy projectiles.

    If you shoot a lot and like a smaller or larger grip, the gen 4 with the extra mag and backstraps may be worth it.

    I like the smaller grip of the Gen 4, feels more natural in my hand. I really grew to like the texture as well once I fired them a few times. The extra mag is an added value as well.

    Based on that, any Glock I buy will likely be a Gen 4.

    Another (assumed) benefit of the Gen4's are the double recoil spring. I am debating now on the Gen4 21 for myself now. Let us know what you end up buying with a review etc. Thanks.

    Let me put it this way,I wish my three Gen 3's were Gen 4's too.I really like the grip better.

    Well I fought between gen4 g21, gen 3,g 21,,and hens 3& 4 g22 and went with g22 gen 3 .it felt better in my hands.price was not a deal breaker. Oh and just didn't like the grip texture of the 4s.review through my eyes to come.
