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.

Love my Glock 27 Gen4 grips. It allows you to handle the gun easily with sweaty hands.

Have a Gen 3 G22 and just picked up a Gen 4 G23 about 2 hours ago. I prefer the gen 4 grips. Both guns would have been gen 4 but the only 22 in DE I could find was a gen 3 so that is what I got.

I prefer the Gen4 grip over the Gen3 but don't like the Gen4 recoil spring setup

I wasn't too excited about the texture on the gen 4 guns. It rubs my love handles when I carry. I've had a few gen 4 Glocks but they didn't stay long.

As for the rubber talon grips, I give a big thumbs up for them! My EDC sporting them:

I like the Gen 4 grip alot - feels great in my hands. The only thing I'm not crazy about is when I'm carrying IWB, it's a little uncomfortable on my skin, but I don't carry my Gen 4 enough or I'd probably get used to it, I still carry a Gen 3 as my primary CCW.

You can try some 500 grit sandpaper. That should smooth it out for you.
I do the same on the belly side of the grip. I carry OWB under a "T" shirt and my fat belly takes a beatin' from the grips. Forget IWB!

Never knew there was so much debate about grips. Gen1, Gen2, Gen3, Gen4, RTF1/2, doesn't matter to me. I just pick up the 'dang thing and shoot it

+1 for the RTF2 grip...love my G17 rtf2 gillie! My hands could be covered in motor oil, grease, blood, or worse and I would still have an excellent grip and control of my weapon...

I think the texture is a bit much. I carry IWB and it definitely rubs me the wrong way.
Pachmayr grip solved it for me!

Agrip will solve all Glock grip texture problems. Here is my (gen. 3) G21 with Agrip on it:

Lol. I get the feeling some of these guys wish they could get a .380 Glock because the 9mm has too much recoil.
