other than aesthetics, is there any difference?
im looking at 2 used guns and one has older style slide and the other is a new style.

is there a "better" option between the 2?

any weight or dimension difference?

If there's an advantage of one over the other, I haven't seen it. New style is reportedly a little longer and heavier, but not enough to matter much.

The new style is maybe 1/8" longer and maybe 1/4oz heavier. Maybe. It's very close. The new style uses a different recoil rod and spring, probably an improvement. I'd get the new style.

If the new slide style you're referring to is the one with the bevel near the bore, I like the beveled style. Seems to me the bevel would help in placing the gun in a pocket or holster versus the squared off slide.
