    Picked up a used G23G4 that seemed to only have about a box of ammo ran through it. So far I have ran 173 rounds through it and wanted to show it off. I have had zero malfunctions shooting one handed, with and without a light mounted. I find the gen. 4, .40 S&W Glocks to have a softer recoil. The dual recoil spring really helps mitigate the snap. While shooting .40 S&W range ammo, it feels like shooting a G19G4 with +p premium self defense ammo. The more you shoot it, the more you get accustom to the .40 S&W recoil impulse.

    Nice shooting at 25 yds. How do those HDs do for range work? Do they have a good sight picture in full light? I assume they do because you got that bad guy.

    Congrats! My G23 Gen4 is on my hip right now.

    And I agree that the G23 really benefits from the dual recoil spring.

    Congrats on the new G23... I also say the new dual RSA helps with that snap.. I just shoot mine today at the range only shot a few rounds out of her though.. it was just to hot out LOL..

    Thank you for the compliment.

    I really like the Trijicon HD's. I find the front sight so easy to pick up during rapid fire that it seems easy. The more light you have the better the orange front stands out. You do get some refection on the rear tritium vial sapphire lenses with a lot of light, but it is something you get used too. The POA/POI with these sights is excellent. At 25 yards I held the front sight flush with the tops of the rears and placed the center dot in the middle of the head. My three shot center cluster is indicative of POA/POI.

    Will the G23 gen 4 dual recoil spring work in a gen 3 G23?

    No. The frame and slide designed to accommodate the dual spring system.

    My gen4 g23 is my edc. As far as I am concerned I can't find a better all around gun when taking into account:

    Ease of maintenance
    Power
    Capacity
    Size/concealability
    "shootability"
    "customizable"

    My 2 cents

    Thanks fellas.

    Quite honestly, I was a .40 S&W hater for a long while. After much research and honest evaluation I have found myself appreciating the caliber enough to buy a pistol chambered in it.

    Exact same story as me. Disliked .40 for a good bit, but appreciate it now. Still not my favorite round, but I love my g4g23. Only pistol I own in .40.

    ANY Glock 23 is an amazing carry piece. Everyone should have one. It's the glock that just seems to fit and balance perfectly in everybody's hands.

    Years ago I had Robar do their Norton Special package on mine. It's so nice and silvery now that I've designated it as my "court gun" for times when I'm in a suit and tie.

    Congrats!
