    I went to check out a NIB G22 that was advertised as a Gen 4. It had the RTF and the slide with the "gills". However the frame did not have the interchangeable backstrap. So I believe that it was a late run Gen 3. Anyways the listed price was 629.00 so I passed on the gun, but was wondering if I was correct in stating that the gun was a Gen 3? The dealer pretty much called me and idiot for telling him it was.

    It was more like gen 3.5... It was a RTF2 G22. Not a Gen4

    RTF2 G22

    Gen4 guns have Gen4 right on the side. Like so.

    You are correct. The Gen 4 comes with the adjustable backstraps. Don't feel bad. I recently went into a fairly large gun store and asked about the Gen 4 Glock and they looked at me like I was speaking a different language.

    Its a Gen 3 the half moon slide serrations were cancelled... 4th gen glocks are alot more different than 3rd gen RTF2's

    If you have the 1st 3 digit of the serial it can be showed to him... or just say the Gen4 has it on the slide... then you can pretty much call him an idiot...:rofl:

    $629... HOLY CRAP!

    Yes, it was a Gen3 RTF2 w/"Fish Gills", which normally sell for $500 in a majority of stores around the country. Gen4 says Gen4 on the slide as shown below...

    Here are the rules again;
    1. Dealers are almost always wrong, and rate right up there with car salesman.
    2. Pay no attention to the guy hanging around the shop in Camo and talking about his sniper time in 'Nam.
    3. Refer back to #1 and 2

    Show him this:

    Great Advice! Yea I just wanted to get my hands on one with the RTF and if the price was right scoop it up, I though there was a misprint on the tag thinking maybe it was supposed to be $529.

    Yep, you're dealer is an idiot.

    A) for trying to sell you a 3rd Gen as a 4th Gen

    B) for charging that ridiculously high price for it

    Find a dealer that knows a little bit about what he's selling and take you're business there!!!

    A business person should not expect to do good business by making his customers feel like an "idiot" - especially if he's WRONG!

    Yes that salesman is an idiot, but remember he is the gun "expert". $649.00! $549.00? come on, I bought my G22 with the 'gills' blue label box for $389.20+tax with my GSSF cert. 3wks. ago.

    I would find a new dealer or know exactly what you want and what it should cost. The best I've seen a G22 Gen4 is $589.00 and a Gen 3.5 $519.00.

    This is not my regualr gun store, It was my first visit and it is known around town that he gets his new shipments of Glocks in on the 1st of the month. I will never get go back, btw I forgot to mention that I did walk outta there with a nice handful of glock decals...
