Anybody else find the grip texture on the Gen 4's objectionable?
 
And if so, what did you do?

Got a G19 G4. LOVE the gun, but that textured grip...not so much. Shot an IDPA match yesterday in freezing temps so they allowed gloves. I used a pair of winter golf gloves and it was SO much more comfortable to shoot. Any ideas?

Check out Talon grips. The rubber granulated ones make the gen 4 texture better for concealed carry

2nd on Talon grips. Have them on a few of my guns. I really like them a lot.

not at all, i much prefer gen 4 grips vs the smoother gen 3's.

Agreed

Gen 4 is great. I'm selling my gen 3 17 so I'll have a gen 4 26 and 30'

I had a gen 4 g22. Like you I didn't like the grip texture. I traded it for a gen 3.
You can try some 500 grit sandpaper. That should smooth it out for you.

I will not buy any more Gen 3 pistols I think... I would trade an UNFIRED 17 gen 3 for an unfired gen4, FTF in fact.

Shiloh228 02-10-2013 09:56

Yes...primary reason I bought a Gen 3 G19...had the chance (back in the day...about 6 weeks ago...when this was possible) to buy either one...immediately did not like the Gen 4 grip texture.

Love the Gen4 texture.

Rustin 02-10-2013 09:59

Yes, I have an objection, they aren't grippy enough! RTF2 all the way!

The g4 is the most perfect gun invented. The grip is awesome.

I also prefer the Gen4 grip texture.

Shinytop 02-10-2013 10:05

Have not fired gen4. Felt it at gun show, compared to gen3 and bought gen3. No regrets.

intenseneal 02-10-2013 10:29

Nope dont like the Gen4's RTF grip at all, way to rough and spiky. Gen2 and Gen3 grips are the best IMO. I really love the Gen3 RTF2 grip the best much smaller texture than the Gen4.

I love the Gen4 grips and that's all I would buy from now on. The Gen3 grips are too slippery. I can't use a Gen3 without putting a Talon grip on it.

The Gen. 4 grip is a big improvement over the privious. I use a Hogue grip sleeve on the Gen. 3 which worded out very well and others I have suggested it to who did not like the Gen. 3 grip. Unforunately the Hogue Universal Grip Sleeve will not work well on the Gen. 4. The improved trigger, mag release, grip, and other improvements are such that I can easily and happily live with it.

GeorgiaGlocker 02-10-2013 11:58

I don't like the gen 4 grip. If I was to purchase another glock, it would be a gen 3 or gen 2.

JBP55 02-10-2013 13:02

If the Gen 4 grip is too rough you must never work with your hands or shoot when your hands are wet. I actually prefer the rougher grip texture of the Gen 3 RTF2 but I prefer the Gen 4 pistols overall. The standard Gen 3 grip is too slick.

Same here. Even IWB with no undershirt, I find the Gen4 texture quite comfortable.
