Has anyone shot Gen3 & Gen4 G17 back to back? Felt recoil difference

    Aside from the exciting newly textured grip, the only really interesting part to me about the Gen4 glocks is the new recoil assembly. Curious on the 9mm glocks (G17 is only Gen4 9mm out) how is rates compared to the Gen3 in felt recoil, follow up shots, etc.

    Can't decide if this new assembly is a good thing or bad thing. On one hand it's a new and central component to weapon reliability ... I wonder if it will have kinks that need to be worked out. After all - the Gen3 recoil assembly has worked fine all these years for 9mm glocks.

    Any input from members here?

    AFAIK, the Gen4 G17s have just been released in the "Blue Label" variety. I assume that commercial Gen4 G17s will follow in about a wek or two.

    So, to answer your question, I do not believe there are too many people out there to answer your question.

    I just ordered one this morning and should have it on the range by next weekend against my RTF2, I'll let you know.

    I don't see how it can shoot any better or have any less recoil than my RTF2, but we'll see...
