    Just picked it up today! Here's a crappy cell phone pic. It actually says "Gen 4" on the slide.

    Awesome, now where is the darn range report.....:whistling:

    I would like to know if you fell any reduced felt recoil with the gen 4 vs any other 17 you have shot. I am looking at this for my new IDPA gun this summer as I am going to get into that this year. I had been thinking about the 34 but if the gen4 17 has a reduced felt recoil I can see myself going with it instead.

    Sorry....I only picked it up today. Will try and go shoot over the weekend though. You know what? I don't think I've EVER fired a G17 before so I won't be able to comment on any perceived difference in felt recoil. I've owned G34, G19, and G26 but this is my first G17:supergrin:!

    You know the comparison between the 34 and the gen 4 17 would be a good one as well. Enjoy the first shoot :supergrin:
