    Besides the extra mag...is there any tangible difference? I know Gen 3's like the back of my hand...how is the Gen 4?

    I am no glock expert, but I think the differences for the g4s include, removable back straps, ambi mag latch, different texture, and the new recoil spring. When I was looking at buying a glock, I just got the first one that I thought a good deal; be it g3 or g4.

    A lot of people say that the g4 glocks are not a snappy, but I have yet to shoot both side by side to notice.

    I have both, I prefer the gen4, not much difference in the felt recoil, but the gen4 feels a lot better in the hand for me, I might send it off to zev tech one of these days to contour the grip, and maybe their slide on it
