    The reason for this question is because of the slight changes I can see in my New Gen3 G34,they are slight but I can notice them.
    The talk over the Gen 4 models glocks has been hashed to death,Im not tring to revive it.
    But I would really like for someone to tell me why Glock fixed something that wasnt broken?

    The interchangable backstrap I can see ,but why in the world did they do the change to the internals of the Glock?

    "If its not broken ,dont fix it"

    And the internals of the Glock to me worked just fine.
    Im still tring to figure that one out, I understand the backstrap thing,but not the internal thing!

    Just need to know!

    My guess would be cost cutting in production. I have been known to be wrong on occasion though.

    Well, for one, the trigger housing had to be changed to accommodate the smaller frame size, which led to the "." connector as well because they also needed to change the angle.

    The same thing happened with the SF models for the same reason.

    This.

    Things that didn't need to be changed.
    1.The bump on the trigger bar.
    2.The housing sits here for the the cruciform to have a more secure contact with the firing pin lug.
    3. Dual recoil spring.

    They only did these "updates" to find an excuse to make them "better."
