30 seconds with some 220 grit sand paper on the left side of the grip, problem solved. Still has plenty of grip. just not as sharp, and it does not look any different from the right side.
My experience also. 60 seconds with some sand paper to take the edge off the spikes and it's comfortable all day.

The Gen4 texture is good to go. If I could wave a magic wand and put that texture on my Gen3s I would. My Gen4 23 feels like it was made just for my hand.

My biggest complaint on Glocks has always been the grip. When the Gen4 guns came out I tried them and thought the grip texture was much improved. It wasn't as slippery as the older versions and had a decent feel. So I bought a Gen4 21 and liked it. After shooting it, the grip still felt hard, uncomfortable, and difficult to maintain a consistent grip. So I did what I have done with all of my Glocks. I bought a Hogue Handall and it now feels like a totally different gun. The grip is easier on the hand and provides a firm grip that doesn't change position during fast follow-up shots. It has been a huge improvement.

"I've had a complaint with most sidearms I've held over the years...too dang slippery!"

The wifes little SW 9mm M&Pc is a great sidearm. but it was like holding a greased pig!

I actually prefer the Gen4 texture.
I do have Talon grips on my XD and Kahr though, they're great.

The Gen 4 texture is a huge improvement IMHO. Gen 3 is too slippery, even for the range.

I don't like the grips on any polymer guns.

Use Hogue or Pachmayr sleeves on all my polymer guns.

I like the Gen 4 grip. I also like the RTF2 frame.

I prefer Gen3 over Gen4 any day of the week. Had the chance to buy either one about 2 weeks ago and chose the Gen3 G19. Couldn't be happier!

I don't have girly hands so I prefer the Gen 4. They could stop making the Gen 3 and I wouldn't care in the least.

The G21 Gen 4 was the first Glock I bought. Never liked the grip on previous versions. I guess if your hands are soft you may find the rough texture objectionable. Better stay away from the SA Xd's or your hands will look like a waffle

I joined the NRA, have you yet?
Then why are shooters sanding them down and getting sleeves
and Talon grip covers.

My take on the gen 4 is this.

I'm right handed, mag release means nothing.

The dual RSA? Why do they make adaptors to use the
older single gen 123 RSA's if it's so good?

Multiple back straps, again the gen 2 & 3 fits me perfect.

So no advantage to a gen 4 "for me"

Some seem to like them and variaty is a good thing.
