    Are the dimensions of the frame/slide other than the grip the same?

    Same length and height and width. Barrel lug is different, as is trigger housing, trigger bar, recoils spring, slide and frame. The differing parts to not interchange with older Glocks.

    The locking block pin and the trigger housing pin also differ.

    So the 4th gen will fit in my current holster exactly the same as my 3rd gen glock?

    One correction on the above, the trigger and trigger bar has some changes, however it is the same size and is 100% interchangeable with Gen 3 pistols.

    Yes. I use the same holsters for my Gen4 that I use for my Gen3. The fit is identical.
