I can barely tell it from a G19. I'm shooting 165gr reloads and 180gr factory and they're both great.
For me the gen 3 is so much better than the gen 2 that I'm starting to wonder why I still own a G19 !
I must have the best of both worlds. My 3rd Gen Glock 23 has a Gen 2 grip. I recently ground off the finger humps and stippled the frontstrap because my middle finger sat on top of the hump instead of in between. I love it now.
