    Hey Guys

    Thinking about picking up Gen 4 26 and 21. Looked at Gen 4 26 last weekend. Slide has more of a flat black finish than my old 17 Gen 3. I have a last year production Gen 3 34 that also has the flat finish. Do all the Gen 4 slides have the flat black slide finish?

    All of mine don't--just the early Gen4 models. The ones I picked up late last year and this year have a shinier finish, but nothing like the older, slick black finishes.

    My G26 has the matte gray finish, but the G21 has the "medium" shiny finish.

    Thanks for the update and pics. I guess I might go ahead and get the 26. Is $539.00 a pretty good price? I guess there will be no more shiny slides.

    Yes, that would be a good price--I remember seeing Gen4 models at Cabela's for close to $600!

    My G26 is older than the G21, and rides in the holster a lot, so the finish is getting dull in a hurry.
