    I am about to purchase this pistol. Is there any reason not to? Anyone have any experience with this Gen 4?
    Any advice appreciated.

    I have a gen4 g32 and it's been perfect. It ejects properly and the dual captured recoil springs make the 357sig more enjoyable to shoot. Get it and you won't regret it.

    Man its funny to see this thread as I was just thinking of selling off My Gen3 27 and gettng a G32.. I just placed a order today for my Blue Label G34, so I was thinking why not get a 32 to add to the collection of my Gen4 23, G30SF, soon to be 34, and the wifes G19... I hate to sell off my 27 but I just dont shoot it much and its prob only seen around 1000 or less rounds...

    I had converted my gen4 22 into a 357sig with barrel. It shot just fine.

    Viking,

    I'm using G22 Gen4 with a G31 OEM barrel as my test platform for my .357SIG loads. Works just fine. I'll probably get the taller rear sights for it, because I actually prefer that round over the .40S&W.

    If only practice ammo was the same price as .40 I'd probably have a 31 instead of a 22.

    That's the beauty of a Glock. For the price of an aftermarket or OEM barrel, you can convert your .40 to .357.

    I've ran .40 through a G23 and carried it as a .357 for CCW, but I don't know too many folks who could buy 1000 rounds of .357 for a training class.

    I'd never feel under gunned with a .357 SIG Glock though.

    I have the Gen 4 G32. Loving it so far... 400 rounds down range, 100 GD HP. 200 Lawman TMJ, 100 Underwood TMJ.

    Also picked up an AA .22 kit. 100 rounds with that also. Great caliber.

    If any of you guys who also have a Gen 3 32 could comment if the new Gen 4 recoil springs reduce recoil, muzzle rise, etc. compared to the Gen 3?
    I posted this question quite a while ago, but never got any responses, so I am asking again.
    Thanks

    Very happy with my 2012 production Gen 4 31. Only 100 rounds of GDHP so far and all cases go same area at 4 o'clock. My son has a Gen 3 32. Comparing recoil...same GDHP...I'd say the Gen 4 spreads the impulse energy over the entire cycle in a more even manner. The Gen 3 starts smoother but has quite an impulse when the slide hits the frame stop. I like the mag release and the grip on the Gen 4 better also.
    I had two round hang on the feed ramp in the first twenty rounds but I think I was too easy on the grip trying to stop any laser movement while sighting in the Crimson Trace on the Gen 4 31. No problems after that; however, still early in the round count.

    I've got a gen 3 G27 that runs in three calibers.
    Prefer carry in 357 Sig with a G32 mag/XGrip
    and twin G31/XGrip reloads.
