    I don't know if it's just me, but I already held about five gen3 (all from my buddies), a g19 and most are g17's with Austrian proof marks and the trigger OTB on them are just amazing! All of them have roughly 300rds down the pipe, bone stock with no polishing or trigger mods. I mean you just can leave them stock with no need of even changing the springs to the reduced one's :)

    I have owned a few and the wonderful trigger pull is the same as the others.
    If you like I can pull some NIB out and test the trigger pull on them and report back.

    That is good to know then. Yes, pls do. But it's not just the lightness of the pull, but also how smooth the pull is. TIA :)

    I took 4 unfired Gen 3 G19's out and tried the trigger pull 10 times on each and due to the difference I repeated 10 pulls on each and took an average for each pistol. I did not try any Gen 4 pistols as I wanted them to be the same.
    Gen 3 G19 5# 5oz.
    Gen 3 G19 5# 11oz.
    Gen 3 G19 RTF2 5# 10oz.
    Gen 3 G19 Aus. 5# 0oz.
    My wife pulled each trigger and said there was very little difference but she said the Austrian marked G19 felt slightly better. She tried each trigger pull twice.
    Just for you Exan.

    Wow! Thanks for your effort sir, appreciate it a lot :) So it's not much of a difference but seems the Austrian marked is really slightly better. Now I know. Thanks again :cool:
