    I'll be staying with the 3rd Gen as my preferred frame of choice. The RTF frames in general intrigue me for use as an IDPA or IPSC weapon. If I ever did one I would go 3rd Gen RTF because I really didn't like the new mag release/catch.

    I'll fondle it a whole bunch more in a few weeks at SHOT SHOW...maybe my attitude will change? :whistling:

    Good to know! Jesse said she was unsure of other models getting the new assembly.

    Wow a polymer pistol with interchangeable backstraps, ambi (reversible) mag. release, and dual recoil springs... Gee wish someone thought of that design years ago!

    Wait... someone did. :supergrin:

    I like the Gen 3 models just fine. Is it just me, or does anyone else like the Glocks because of their simplicity? :dunno:

    For logistics, it makes sense to keep all the small frames similar. Like when they determined they needed the additional locking block pin for the .40, they added it to the 9mms as well.

    Exactly. One reason I bought a Glock is that everything is simple and most parts interchangeable. I'm a lefty and have trained to use a right-handed gun, so a ambidextrous mag release doesn't interest me, especially if I can't use certain magazines!

    If the SF back strap is the smallest they will offer. I am very dissapointed I was hoping for a flat back strap. Git rid of the hump.

    You can't get here from there!
    Have any of you who are bemoaning the fact that the smallest grip is SF sized ever held a G22 SF? Does such a creature even exist?

    Some of you guys really crack me up.

    Regards,
    Happyguy :)

    ahh thanks for that! I was curious too. I actually always called it a moulding flaw that my Glock frames warped up like that, but it might also be to keep the frame stable. after all, Glocks aint fitted like a 1911...

    Come-on boys, rumors spread on glock talk like a forest fire. Wait until the new models are introduced , then you can judge for your self. OVERTHEHILLGUY

    I agree. All these threads about the Gen4 filled with folks talking about hating something they have never seen or shot for that matter. Relax.

    I figured I would add some Jessie Abbate pictures to the fray. This one is part of my Glock computer desktop collection.

    As for the 4th generation Glock design, I will hold off on my opinion until it's unveiled and I get a chance to see one in person.

    To be honest though guys, what do you guys expect from Glock? I mean if they change to much it may question the reliability of a new design... What they have now works, may not always be the most comfortable to some shooters but it performs for the most part, flawlessly. If it changes too much people may get turned off. We'll see, I am reserving judgement for when I can actually hold one and see for myself.

    I hated the idea of a Gen4 and was holding out on them indefinitely. Secretly inside i was glad they didn't have slide in back straps like the Walther P99. The more i think about it basically the only thing new about the Gen4 is its a SF,Dual Captured recoil spring, with RTF3. I like my dual captured recoil spring g26, SF g21,and RTF2 g17. Doesn't sound so bad, minus the pop on back straps, as long as the internals are the same. We will see.
