I've seen a bunch of complaints on the internet about the 4th Gen. I do not, however subscribe to the theory that "if it's on the internet it must be true". With that in mind, and with over 15 years experience with Glocks, most of that time carrying a Dept. mandated 40 cal., I decided to run my own test on the Gen 4. I've picked up a G34, and as soon as I do an Armorers inspection it's off to the range. Actually, it's off to the pasture. I'm anxious to find out if I have become another sucker for buying a Gen 4, or if in spite of the internet spewing forth pointless verbiage, I have made a good choice. Regardless of how good or bad the Gen 4 is, the bright side is it can't possibly be worse than the Sig P 226 that I recently acquired. (Sig for sale ) Range report to follow.
