I'm one of those who had a problem with my Gen 3 & 4 Glock 19's finger grooves; however, for some strange reason, my Glock Gen 4 26 and Gen 4 Glock 33 finger grooves never bothered me despite being dimensionally identical. Maybe there is something about what happens to my pinky, and the bottom of my hand generally, that makes some kind of difference (I don't know); but I am curious about what people think about the finger-grooveless Gen5 G26 compared with the Gen4. Having a full grip on a G17 or G19 probably doesn't matter much, but when you only have two fingers on the grip, I assume they feel different when shooting. After all, the G26 was introduced as a Gen2.1. While the other models of Gen1 and Gen2 pistols were devoid of finger grooves, they thought it was important to add them to their then new offering in 1994 (probably due to the fact that for the first time you had to dangle a pinky to shoot it). Glock must have thought it was an improvement because 4 years later they introduced the finger grooves across the entire lineup, and 12 years later, when they introduced the Gen4's, they kept the finger grooves despite more than a decade of people complaining. Anyway, besides the finger grooves, I'm also interested if anyone has any strong opinions about the other changes.
