    Hopefully just rumor. A world without Gen 3’s is a scary world indeed.

    California is a great place to visit any time of year for sunshine and brand new Gen3 Glocks.

    Californians have voted that Gen3 Glocks are the only safe Glocks, and that anything after Gen3 is dangerous. Gen4, 5 or any other future Generation are prohibited, in most cases.

    In their mesmerizing wisdom, they have determined however, that post-Gen3 Glocks are only safe for:

    - Law Enforcement
    - Out of State Immigrants moving into the State (you are welcome to bring your G4, or 5)
    - Anyone who buys it at a used gun (from Law Enforcement or Immigrants)

    Glock has observed that there is still great demand for brand-new Gen3 Glocks from California's dignified citizens.

    Therefore, they will continue to produce Gen3's for Californians because there are a lot of them.

    Come visit the sunshine State if you would like a brand new Gen3 Glock.* It will be available here for a long time.

    * (1) Only Gen3 Glocks made in Austria are safe in California. The voters have determined that Gen3 Glocks that are made in the USA are not safe for regular people. They are safe however, for Law Enforcement, Immigrants and the used market.

    (2) Californians have also determined that the G30S (which only comes in Gen3) is not safe in California, no matter where it's made (Austria or USA). Therefore, it is not allowed. But you can buy a G36 slide and mate it with a G30 frame to create a Frankenstein G30S. This is considered safe.

    Just picked up a new Gen 3 G17 in Vegas for $470. I prefer the grip over the Gen 4.

    Confirmed by Glock that gen3's are going to continue to be produced with no plans to quit.

    They need to let the gen 3 die with dignity... but they won't.

    My local dealer has had a hard time finding Gen 3s recently as well. Discontinued? I'd be shocked. I CAN see Glock choosing to throttle back production for now. How long and to what extent is the question.

    I initially thought Glock would make the Gen 5s somewhat of a limited run. With the addition of the 26 and the thread about a foreign 22, I may have erred. Keeping the full production of the three generations is a lot of models going at once.

    It could be nothing more than a very short term situation with supply catching back up quickly. :dunno:

    Time will tell.

    Every few weeks someone posts that Gen 3s are no longer being produced. Its like when my girlfriend "looses" her phone. I no longer get worried.

    I only own one Gen 4, a G20. Have 2 19s, a 17, and 2 26s all Gen 3. Then I have a 43 which doesn't have a Gen. I still prefer the Gen 3 big time. It's just simpler.
