I still prefer Gen 3 overall.
Count me in on the Gen 3’s too
I started shooting Glocks hard in the late-90s when the Gen3 was newer and was (and am) a die-hard Gen3 fan. I tried to like the Gen4 for a long time and I finally bought a Gen4 19 when the price was irresistible and I’ve really grown to like it. I shoot it well and appreciate the larger mag release- so much so I’ve ccw’d my Gen4 19 for two years.
I’m not a Gen5 fan as I detest the ambi slide-stop and the finish is worst in a long time.
That’s a damn near perfect stipple job
Just go shoot it.
it will get shot plenty next week when I get back to work
I am usually not fussy about guns- as long as it runs and shoots accurately enough for the intended purpose I am happy. Until recently my glocks were a gen 2 19 and gen 3 26. Was pretty happy with both and figured that would be it. Well a gssf prize certificate forced me to pick up a gen 5 19. It definitely feels better in the hand and the larger mag release is a great benefit to my Pygmy hands!
I even sold off my gen 2, and am thinking hard about replacing my gen 3 26 with a gen 5
Now you will have to pick up a G44 to "train with"
nah. The 9mm is free. For the time being I won’t need the G44
I went all in on the Gen 5 Glocks as soon as they were released and never looked back.
Best 9mm Glocks ever made. YMMV
In case anyone actually cares, I decided to take the plunge and exchange my Gen 3 19 and 17 for a set of Gen 4 pistols.
After putting in Gen 3 trigger and trigger bars, I am very happy with my decision. The slight change in feel of the grip has made me like my pistols even more.
KEEP THE GEN 3 !!!! At my work we used the Gen 3's and then got in some Gen 4's. A lot of the Gen 4's had rust crop up here and there. I never saw a Gen 3 rust. Plus the Gen 4's were having troubles with functioning with the new style recoil springs. I'd never buy a Gen 4. My favorites are the Gen 2 and 3. I say keep the Gen 3. They are boringly reliable and boring is GREAT !
Get the Gen 5 G 17 the Glock to end all previous Glocks.
Nah , the dual slide stops and coil springs on the stop stop and slide release haven't had time to see if they will be reliable in my opinion. I still thing think the original style springs have did great over the last 30 years with no problems. That is my concern. Plus the dual slide stops just complicates a simple a pistol that was originally made to be a simple reliable pistol with very few parts.
Switch from Gen 3 to Gen 4 = for me that would be a big yes.
Why? Smaller grip size and mag release button.
Current Glock 19s are Gen 4 Front Serrations. REALLY like this version!
I love my Gen 3 G17 and G19. My brother and a few friends have the Gen 4 and I was not impressed.
Get the Glock 44. I got an Advantage Arms Conversion Unit on my G17 and I love it.
Gen 3s are the most tested in service and longest serving leo military sidearm around the world
That's no small thing
Gen 4 for me. Smaller grip circumference, better mag release.
Hate the ambi slide stop on gen 5, and not sure if the rifled vs polygonal barrels are a cost-cutting measure on gen 5?
Beautiful thing is that Glock offers options, so we can all be happy!
Currently have 5 Glocks. Four gen4’s and picked up my first gen 5 yesterday, a model 45. Have not shot it yet. I have owned just about every Glock in 9 and 40 and a couple of 45’s in all the generations. Have not disliked any of them. They all were very reliable, typical Glocks!!! They all went bang every time. Have never had one fail. To this point I have liked the Gen 4 the best. Why? I think just the way they feel to me and the ability to add back straps. The jury is still out on the Gen 5. I think every generation is great, just whatever you like the best. Every generation Glock does a damn good job at what it was designed to do.

They are all Glocks with minor differences. I am not tying to convince myself to change. I'd rather buy ammo. My wife would not care one way or the other.
