There aren't many worse choices. Those stupid Glock finger bumps absolutely ruin the pistol.
I've heard if you have larger hands (not saying you do personally) then the finger grooves don't fit your hand well. I have smaller hands and they fit me perfectly, I'm personally a huge fan of the 4th Gens, awesome frame texturing and nice mag release. My extractor was pretty erratic for the first few hundred rounds, but I'm at 700 rounds or so and it seems to have straightened itself out

I do have larger hands. I can palm a basketball. The notion of putting on "one size fits some" finger bumps when no two person's hands are identical, is foolish. That is especially true for a general issue weapon that you can't dremel.
