    So i know the differences on paper and have held each. The only thing I like better on the gen 4 is the bigger mag release. Is this really worth the extra money though? It does help that 3 mags come with the gen 4. What are your thoughts on edc comfort with the grip texture? Have all the brass to face issues been worked out by now? Thanks for any input.

    I got rid of my gen4 for a gen 3. After 100 rounds, the texture was killing my hands.

    I'm also in construction with rough hands lol.

    So the ejection issues are well settled then?

    The mag release being bigger seems a huge plus

    Mags are cheap, so is a mag extension....any place where you can test fire each? I chose the gen 3 simply because I heard the gen 4's were having problems. I really did not know what problems, but that was enough to sway me to go with the cheaper gen 3. Good luck,

    Go with whichever texture you prefer, and if the grip of a gen 3 just isnt right you can change back straps on a gen 4.

    Very few problems with 40 cals, most problems related to 9mm and those are fixed

    Have you tried the Glock 36? Its a single stack 45, so more power, easier to conceal in the summer, and less recoil.

    Check the youtube vids on the G4 G27. They might change your mind.

    Gen 4 with Talon rubber. You also get the third magazine as well as the multiple back straps. I own five gen 4s and no issues with any of them.

    I am still waiting to see what happens with the Gen 4 Glocks. For now I stick with the Gen 3's.
