Utter nonsense as far as my Gen4 GLOCKS are concerned.

BTW, what's with all the oddball questions in your first few days as a member?

Of course it is true. If you heard it why would it not be true?

I have two Gen 4 Glocks and three Gen 3 Glocks. I find all guns to be equally reliable which is very reliable on all five Glocks. I do prefer the Gen 4s as far as feel in the hand. I also like the beaver tail options. My every day carry is a G27 gen 3.

Good question and post. Your post was not odd IMO. Some of the Glock talkers who have been here awhile see get tired of seeing negativity or similar post. With that said.... I look forward to the Glock carbine and single stack 9mm that is coming out soon.

The next Glock on my short list is a Glock 26 Gen 4. Unless someome is giving a Glock away on the internet. Glocks are great guns. Very reliable, easy to learn and shoot well. After market holsters, parts and accessories are easy to find and purchase. You could do far worse. Buy one and then go train with it. Do not be in a hurry to modify or add stuff to the gun as soon as get it. Enjoy.

There are probably more total third generation Glocks in circulation than Gen4 Glocks but I am uncertain of a statistical difference percentage wise. I wsould however seriously question the source or sources that have suggested that third generation Glocks are more reliable and that Glocks are "best." Glocks are certainly very popular but I would ask for some specific verifiable statistics from anyone who suggests either statement.

More than 90,000 rounds on Gen 4 Glocks and not one failure or issue of any kind.

You may want to do a GT search as this has been hashed and rehashed and then rehashed again on her over the past few years. I'm a Gen 3 guy as I just don't care for the Gen 4s as much but the Gen 4s are pretty much GTG as far as I'm concerned. As far as function goes the early Gen 4 19s had a few hiccups with weaker ammo as the RSAs were a bit too stout I believe but that issue has been fixed for a while now.

I think the early 9mm gen 4 models had their share of issues, but it's been sorted out.
