I find the gen 4 grip better than the gen 3. Gen 3 was to slippery in my opinion.
Only the back strap on my 26 Gen 4 was annoying to me. The rest are fine.
All I did was to get some 220 sand paper and sand some of the texture down.
Now it feels superb.
Do not get the talon granulated grip ( sand paper) style if you plan to CCW . Way to much grip. Stuck to all my cloths and felt like it was ripping skin off if it hit bare skin.
Feels great to me. I like it rough.
I find the texture on my G19gen4 to be fine! It seems that whatever the feel or texture of any gun, there could be criticizism from some direction. In any case, after using rubber slip-ons on other pistols, I have one on my Glock also! lol I prefer the thinner, stretch on type since they don't add too much thickness to the grip.
Yes, I find it objectionable. Therefore I only buy and shoot Gen 3s or older. My only Gen4 is a still unfired G17 25th anniversary model.
I have been very happy with the Gen4 over the Gen3. Noticed it more outside on a hot day, the Gen4 gave a better grip and control. Down to only one gen3, and that one has a future home with someone I shoot IDPA with. Then it will be all Gen4 in the family!
I love the gen 4 texture, but I think it would be too abrasive for IWB carry.
Nope, I like it. As a combat handgun, I found the grip on the gen 3s too slippery when my hands where sweaty.
The texture is fine but inconsistent. I have a Glock 23 Gen 4 that was great out of the box. The Glock 22 I have and most of the first batch we had shipped required sanding to be tolerable. It was bad enough that shooters that enjoy just getting to pull the trigger called early days on the range. After a bit of 500grit sandpaper and some scotch sponges they are fine. Also if you were wondering you can't visibly see that it has been sanded but man you can feel it.
Doing this gives you better grip texture over the Gen 3 (which was fine in my opinion) but smoothed it out making it MUCH more comfortable in prolonged shoots.
i prefer the gen4 for range shooting, but for ccw the gen3's have the better grip if you are not wearing a shirt between the gun and your body.
Louisiana = hot and sweaty so I like the Gen4 grip better. It can wear on you IWB, but in general I still prefer the new texture.
Yeah, I did.... On my Gen4 G27 after shooting a hundred rounds of 22LR from my ISSC M22.
What I did? Nothing till next time, when I shot a couple boxes of .40 FIRST, and then picked up the .22.
It's all relative!
Sold most of them and started buying sigs.
I much prefer the Gen 4 grip texture over all the previous GLOCK designs.

Which is more important? Getting your hands chapped from a long range session or gripping the gun well in the rain with a bad guy in front of you. Get a holster that keeps the gun away from your skin and live with it.
Bought my first Gen 4, it is a G23. I went to the range and shot 96 rounds through my 24 round Glock mag. Shooting that many rounds that fast made me go to Bass Pro and pick up a Pachmayr grip. Now I love it.
Love the Gen4 grip, but my side did not. Wearing it all day in a IWB rig without a under shirt, it would irritate my side by the end of the day.
30 seconds with some 220 grit sand paper on the left side of the grip, problem solved. Still has plenty of grip. just not as sharp, and it does not look any different from the right side.
