    I hope I'm not repeating old info here. I don't think I've seen a thread on these yet.

    Just Visited Downrange.TV and saw an interview with a GLOCK rep at SHOT show introducing the GEN 4 GLOCK 21.

    It has the new recoil spring, mag release, and grip texture. He said the frame WITHOUT backstrap was the same as the already available SF version. The first backstrap makes it the size of the old G21, and then they have a backstrap bigger than that (for the one human being who may have hands that big). I guessed a long time ago that the G21/G20 frames were already as small as they were going to get. Too bad I was right...

    They also introduced a new backstrap that had a beavertail, but he did not say whether it would have the same GLOCK hump in it or not.

    Here's the rule of thumb with glock product announcements.

    1. Watch Glocktalk.
    2. When someone posts pictures, it exists.

    Thats really the best way to figure it out.

    By the topic title, you would think the OP knows since he made the post. :dunno:

    Maybe, but even so it may be a long wait. Reference the Gen 4 .40s vs the 357 SIGs.... it's the same gun just a different barrel, so where are the Gen 4 375 SIGs???

    Incorrect info. The G31 Gen 4 is out. I was going to buy it last week. Glockmeister in Mesa, Az has one on their display shelf. Not listed on the website but you can see it in person. I go their all the time. Give them a call.

    I hope it comes out soon for you. But I do know that they specifically said that the G20 would probably come out soon after the G21.
