    I already have a gen 3 and I just bought a gen 4, but in FDE. Since the gen 4 mags don't work in the gen 3's, but the gen 3's work in the gen 4's should I just buy more G19 gen 3 magazines? Also, what are the differences between these 2? I know the spring, replaceable back straps, grip texture, mag release, but what else?

    I thought all the mags worked in the Glocks unless you change the mag release to the other side. I guess I have learned another thing about Glocks. Have you thought of buying a Gen 2 19? I love the Gen 2's the most.

    As Two Guns said unless you have the magazine release on your Gen 4 on the right hand side of your gun,for left hand use Gen 3 magazines should work fine in either gun.

    Hmm, I hope you're right. I'm just going by what I read. I already have 2 G19's so I doubt I'll get another

    They're right and you read some bad info. As my fellow GlockTalkers mentioned, Gen3 mags will function just fine in a Gen4 pistol, UNLESS you have the magazine release reversed for left-handed use.
