    Is this correct or bad info I heard on a video about Glock generation models? It was stated that Glock will stop the Gen 4 models and will only be for LE sales. If that is correct, why just the Gen 4 model? What makes it so special? And what will take it's place from the Gen 3's...more Gen 3's?

    They are dropping the Gen4 from civilian sales so they can free up production capacity for Glock carbines and single stack 9mms.

    Its not like there will be a shortage, there are already plenty for sale on the market, plus there will alway be LE trade ins... I prefer the gen 3 anyway so no big loss here.

    Let me guess you heard that at your local gun shop.
    They sell the "last gen4" already with a premium?

    Just going by the comments he's talking about RTFs and not Gen4s. Looks like my Gen4 investment grade pistols are back to work on the nightstand, car, and waistband :embarassed:

    If you look at the user's comments you will notice that he says he mixed up RTF2 for Gen4.

    It was a slip up.
    @jjferkatch I have already clarified this, but it's the RTF that they are getting rid of, not the Gen 4. I apologize.

    I just love Internet rumors. You can't pick up a gun publication without at least one ad for a Gen4 Glock in it. Sure, they will discontinue Gen4 and will go straight back to Gen1.

    Ahhh k...that makes sense. Sorry, didn't mean to get everyone all stirred-up...lol. I got kinda worried there for a moment because I haven't heard this and was hoping it wasn't true. Thanks everyone.
