    The Gen4 comes with 3 mags. The gun store owner and I specifically discussed this point when I bought mine. You got ripped off.

    Not unless he used his GSSF coupon on an LE gun, many dealers remove the third mag allowing you to only have two. Why I dont know, but they did it to me.:upeyes:

    Because Glock tells them to take it out for the GSSF certificate.

    Thanks for the vid, very informative. It looks like the finger grooves are less pronounced on the Gen4 than they are on the Gen3 is that the case? I personally don't mind the finger grooves, but I know a lot of folks would rather have a slick front strap. Maybe Glock made a compromise with the Gen4?

    Nice job. I think they'll make it easier for more people to buy the gun as it now fits just about everyone.

    I liked. Was hoping to see the guts, in particular the new recoil spring and was sad when I didn't find Part 2. So I watched some of your other videos. Keep it up. Mahalo.

    Maybe the guy it my gunshop is just overly generous, but I paid for my Gen4 with my credit card (no GSSF certificate) and I got three mags. I am not LE either.

    If glock ever makes their entire pistol line up in 4th gen I will be sure to have the G20 gen4, and g29 gen4.

    Thanks for the comparison. Looking forward to your range report on functioning. I will be interested in how your light reloads function in the new Fourth Gen G17 and if you feel getting more of your hand on the grip with the SF insert helps with recoil control.
