Gak! Not the dreaded "Gen 3 vs. Gen 4" again! There...I've "self-flamed"... Now...I am (as you can see) a noob here, and I've read as many threads as I can -- and done research, and watched endless YouTube-ers. I am going to buy a G19, and the Gen 4 is $50 more than the Gen 3. The price difference is not a big deal (you do get an extra mag!), and I certainly wouldn't mind paying it for a better gun!! What concerns me (based on what I've been reading) about the Gen 4: BTF/erratic ejection/jams larger mag release would seem -- to me (disclaimer: I've not fired either one) to be more prone to accidental release...I've read that might be a concern re: holstered G19's (some LEOs have had them modified to prevent a drawn weapon from becoming a "one-shot wonder" so...please bear with yet another rookie asking these sorts of questions and summarize for me Gen 3 vs Gen 4 -- especially any other G4 issues. Thanks! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
