    Went to the range today with my new Gen4 Glock 22. The new Recoil Spring system makes a noticeable difference in recoil compared to my 22 RTF. I couldn't be more pleased with the results of this new pistol. I use it without the backstraps. Glock has a winner with this spring system.

    Did you find the grip improved for you without the backstraps? I find the current grips great on mini glocks, somewhat large on compact glocks and really big on full size. I think it is all about where the swell contacts my palm.

    I think that is pretty good evidence that the new gun/springs work just as well, IF NOT BETTER, than gen 3 spring assy.

    Having said that.....How is it different ? It's probably hard to put in to words, but can you try ?

    Its easy. The gun was alot more accurate and pretty much like shooting a 19!

    Larry,

    IMHO you are correct about how well the pistol feels right out of the box. I like the new found thinness in the grip. The thinner grip along with the new recoil spring and short Glock trigger reset makes for a very sweet shooting setup.
