Thank you very much for this informative post. I appreciate it.
Thanks for taking the time to post your thoughts
Did the grip angle change much?
What were the backstraps made out of? Rubber?
Anyone know if 9mm's will have the dual recoil spring or just the 40's ?
Would you say the texture on the NEW 4th Gens is close to the RTF 3 ?
I thought it was somewhat close. The spikes are more spread apart and not as sharp as the standard RTF.
I think Glock was really smart doing this. Not everyone likes new designs, and will at least keep both parties happy.
Maybe it was mentioned in this thread, and I missed it, but will the older slides work on the new frame? Thats a big one I think.
Ammo was Glock provided Blaser
No change to grip angle at all. All Glock
"Polymer", same as the frame
I thought I overheard that the dual recoil assembly was for the G22 which was having issues when a weapon mounted light was present.
Yes. All 4th Gen will have the new Spring System
I'd say it's about half the texture of the RTF. As Tom said, it's got the nubs, but fewer of them
There was no mention that they would not, but that's obviously not something that comes up in random conversation. Wouldn't see why it wouldn't
Is it like the mini Glock recoil assembly's? If so the muzzle's must have had the recoil rod holes enlarged also or can you use the new recoil assembly's in the older generation Glocks?
One more question: Did the 4th gen 22 have the half moon cut in the front of the grip or is it gone like on the FS RTF's? Thanks for all the info.
I think the reversible mag catch is a better idea than the ambi. If nothing else, (as explained here) you can use the older mags as long as you don't reverse the catch.
No. The pad is flat and slightly wider/longer.
Check that jhmayhem. The gen 4 looks to be going back to the straight serrations, so says all that have handled the gen 4. Only the gen 3 RTF2 "option" looks like it will have the fish scale looking serrations.
The reason I asked isnt for the new slides to old frames, the other way around. If the new grip is better than the old one, some people may want to change frames. What I wonder though, is if the grip and internal parts wont interchange, the is a good chance the slide wouldnt either. Maybe it will fit the rails, but it would be an easy possibility that the parts interacting with the frame mounted internals wouldnt work together.
Glock Generation 4 pricing will be the same as older models. The G22's and G17's are the first to be produced,available in January. There will be no olive drabs available.
The information for the pricing on the guns is on the new price listing available through GSSF or Amorer program. The prices are listed,There was no change for either gun,you can still order the Gen 3 models. It list on the price sheet that there is not availability on the olive drab at this time. I do have a price sheet in hand.
