GLOCK Glock Generation 4 Pistols

Glock’s Gen4 series of semiautomatic pistols incorporate all the features and benefits Glock is famous for, along with upgrades to enhance performance and shootability. This series still boasts nearly indestructible polymer frames that are stronger than steel. Tenifer-coating on slides and barrels makes them as impervious to the elements as their predecessors. And Safe-Action-Pistol integrated safety features are still standard. Upgrades includes Rough-Textured Frames (RTF) to make them even easier to handle in extreme conditions. RTF improves Glock’s all-weather performance when shooting with or without gloves. Each Gen4 includes three interchangeable backstraps, so shooters can adjust the grips for a custom fit. Magazine-release buttons are larger and reversible to make them easier to operate for both right- and left-handed shooters. Dual recoil spring assemblies increase durability and reduce recoil and muzzle flip. Available: Gen4 Model 17 – An updated version of Glock’s venerable 9mm Model 17 pistol.

The Best

Date:May 22, 2010
If you want the best all around pistol, this is it. I can't say anymore about it. This gun can be summed up in just one word, and that word is GREAT. I don't think that you will ever find a better gun, and the price is great also.

Glock 23 Gen-4

Date:February 17, 2013
I love this gun. It shoots every type of ammunition I've thrown at it. There is a difference in the felt recoil from the Gen-3 to the Gen-4. The real difference maker is the grip. I prefer the new grip without any of the back straps. There is no hump like on the previous Glocks. The only reason why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is I can't fit the 13th round in any of the three magazines. I tried using a mag assist but stopped for fear of breaking the magazine.

Can't Quite Tell the Difference

Date:January 17, 2013
I have been a fan of Glocks since my college days in the 80s. This is my 4th. I had been waiting for a while for a Gen4 34 comp model with adjustable sights. I settled for the 17 - the price was right and I was tired of waiting. With all the talk and reviews of the dual recoil spring, I was expecting a new experience. Frankly, I could not tell the difference. What I could feel, however, was the abrasive rough texture. I get the idea: increased friction = increased control. But it does not = increased comfort. The trigger felt a little stiffer than my 10mm or my .40 cal. Having said that, the Gen4 hold, aims, and handles like any other previous incarnation. And that is a good thing. I'm about 250 round in; it handles low grade plinkers and high end cor-bons and buffalo bores with equal ease. No FTFs or FTEs. In fact, in 25 years of owning Glocks, I don't ever recall a misfire or misfeed. I'll have fun at the range with the Gen4 17, but my Gen3 20 will continue to be my primary sidearm.

It's ok!

Date:January 26, 2012
I prefer the Smith and Wesson M&P over the Glock any day. That's just my preferences.
