Glock 32 gen4 have questions

I am looking to get a Glock 32 Gen4 are there any problems with the Gen4 that I would need to be concerned about? I really like the rough texture grip as I had that on my Glock 19. Also what do you all reccomend for personal defense rounds?

I just got a new gen4 G23 a few days ago. The first one I brought home had an issue right out of the box with small rust spots on the slide. The store I purchased the G23 from replaced it the next day and the new G23 is perfect. Just look it over thoroughly before purchasing (I looked over the display model and they brought me one from the back). I load all of my Glock .40 models (22, 23) with Winchester PDX1 165's. This particular load is easy to get, performs well and has always run 100% through my Glock's.

Sorry:Just noticed you said 32.....Ignore the ammo recommendations.....lol

I've heard nothing but good things about the Gen 4 Glock 32. I've got a gen 3 but I might buy one as well. I think you'll be very happy with it.

As far as personal defense rounds, the 125gr Speed Gold Dot, Federal HST or Remington Golden Sabre all seem to perform well. On Youtube, tnoutdoors9 has tested all three rounds in ballistics gel. http://www.youtube.com/user/tnoutdoors9/videos

One of the high points of the 357 Sig is barrier penetration, as such I prefer a bonded round. I'd probably go with the Gold Dot.

Good to know. Thanks. How is the double tap ammo?

Erratic-ejection/brass-to-the-face... Occasional report of issues with the new finish, although I feel that is a strong point with Glock when you find one with the "glossy" finish. Other than that, should be a fine weapon, for .357sig, one of the few choices, I believe S&W only does limited runs on the .357sig in the M&P line up.

I don't do business with double tap after seeing how they handled their velocity claims issues a few years back. Underwood is pushing a gold dot to 1500fps though, if you want the extra heat.

Watch the videos and see how those three rounds I mentioned perform. I'd be satisfied using any of them.

I want a Gen 4 G33, but wouldn't turn down a Gen 4 G32 to go with my
Gen 3 G32.
General Glocking

IMHO the Gen 4 .357s run far better than most of the other Gen 4
models.


When in doubt about ammo, always look to what the cops are using.

The 125 gr. Gold Dot (in either two loads) works very well.

Double Tap's offering is 100 fps faster (advertised velocity) and is a
real screamer.
General Glocking
Most people can find Gold Dots far easier than PDX or HST ect.

If you have not seen my links to the Gen 4 G32 article in AH.

Here it is:

Best of luck with landing that Gen 4 .357!

I'm perfectly satisfied with Speer Gold Dot, Remington Golden Saber Bonded, and Federal HST ammo. My reason for owning a handgun is purely self-defense and I think the three 125-grain rounds from these companies are calibrated as well as any other calibers/rounds for the many different scenarios that might occur in a self-defense shooting. Underwood seems to be doing well in pushing the velocity envelope so I am interested in seeing what they might do with some proven heavier bullet designs.

I also have some Hornady 147-grain XTP rounds that seem to be a good JHP fit for the Sellier and Bellot 140-grain TC rounds I still have for woods carry. In the past few days I learned that Hornady's heavy bullet is specifically designed for .357sig so it seems to me this would be something Underwood would push to the bullet's extreme. I expect in the future a greater variety of .357sig rounds will become available in the 125-160 grain weight.

Underwood 125GDHP at a "true" 1475 fps @ $20 a box less than doubletap for the same ammo type that actually gives the advertised velocities. $28.50 a box of 50 from underwood, $48.19 for doubletap.... easy choice for me. The Underwood is cheaper than most practice mainstream junk and has worked flawlessly in all my Glocks...

No problems with mine out of the box. Ordered a blue label G32 Gen4 in Feb and waited about two months to receive the call that it had arrived for pickup.

I hadn't yet purchased the reloading dies for this caliber yet, because:

1) They were twice as expensive as the regular Dillon dies
2) AE 125 gr. FMJ was $14.99/box of 50 at the LGS

So anyway, I blew away my little stash in no time while breaking in the G32 and my newly-acquired steel plate targets. I've since bought the required reloading dies, case gauge, and projectiles, along with some virgin brass for load testing. .357SIG has become one of my favorite calibers to load and shoot.

The only thing I've done so far was to add a Viridian C5L to mine. No night sights yet...but eventually I'll get some. Just too many other "projects" going on at the moment.

No issues at all--not with factory ammo, and not with the ammo I've loaded up for it.

I'd say go out and get one and just enjoy it.

i got one (g32 gen 4) a few months back, my first glock under the gssf coupon program.

have about 5 - 6 boxes through it, no issues at all, mix of fmj and hp's.

this will replace my gen 3 g23 as my carry gun. it's perfect size, the gen 4 grip stippling is way grippier, and i love the 357 sig round for some reason.

fyi i sold my g33 to in part to fund this g32. the g33 was just too small for me to work the controls effectively.

I see underwood is out of stock. Would buffalo bore ammo be a decent choice?

Davsco,
Did you ever look into the +0 grip extention for the G33? I wonder if that would improve the contrability issue?

I spoke to Kevin at Underwood this AM as I wanted more 357 sig myself... He said to check the website on Friday posssibly Thursday. Waiting on a shipment of brass today... If you can wait an extra day or 2 you can save a lot of money over the DT or Buffalo bore. I personally can't afford $46 a box of 50, or more likely just refuse to pay... Just a lowly engineer...

PS: Sorry... my bad.... Dt's $48 a box...ouch!

I agree. I'll wait for underwood. Looks like muzzle flash is high though huh?

I used buffalo bore and doubletap ammo before I found Underwood (Obviously a lot less...$$$$$!!!) Buffalo bore makes a point to advertise that they use the lowest flash propellants available for their loads. BTW Underwood uses the same powder... The 10mm 135 is too much, for me, for Low light situations, 155 not too bad but, the 165 I found to be the best balance. I shoot quite a bit at dusk and made it a point to pay attention to muzzle flash and which ones allowed me to keep my night vision...Oh obviously I forgot we were talking 357sig .. I always "assume" I am in the 10 ring ... I have No problems with the 125gr GDHP 357sig round in lowlight. It's got some flash but nothing near the old hornady 357mag rounds from years ago.... We used to joke that if ya didn't hit em with the 357mag you would burn him to death..... I honestly think my 135 40sw has a bit more flash than my 125gr sig but, it is a very negligable difference..

I've got a gen4 g32 and it's amazing. I've got around 500rds through it without a hitch, no brass to the face, or anything else. Fun gun to shoot and very accurate. I carry gold dots sometimes but usually federal hst in mine
