Glock 4th Generation

Click to enlargeA 4th generation Glock is being heralded. The new polymer wonder gun has a rough grip surface, kind of like the skateboard tape some folks like to stick to their pistols. The rear slide serrations are redesigned. A light rail is on the dust cover, and it looks like the finger grooves are absent, or at least reduced. The magazine release appears to be redesigned as well. No word on whether it is an ambidextrous release or whether older magazines will work with the new gun.

It appears that at least in some ways Gaston has been listening to his disciples.

Update: Fake? A photo analysis

It isn't broken, so it doesn't need to be fixed.

They managed to make it even homelier than the 3rd generation guns...

Other pictures show the finger groves to be just as bad as the 3rd gen guns.

I bet it's ambidextrous. They put ambi releases on the "SF" models with the frames reduced, and it made it impossible to use the old magazines with the new guns. That didn't make a lot of sense to me unless all the newer guns from then on were going to be able to use those magazines.

I'm pretty sure I can see finger grooves there, too, but they do look subtle compared to the current versions. I never minded the finger grooves, though.

Wait, did they improve 'perfection?' Gaston n' friends painted themselves into a linguistic corner, there.

If they move the grip angle to the classic 1911 also used by the M&P guns then - WIN.

If not - then it's SO-SO.

Can I just keep my Gen 1? It still works... :-)

And yes, Glock DOES listen! If you ever get a chance to attend a GSSF meet, there are normally Glock Factory Reps there, who are more than willing to listen.

That looks like a photoshop. I'll believe it when I see it. I'll probably keep using my 3rd Gen no matter what.

i just purchased the 4th generation glock and the hand grip is much better than my other Glock side arms. It was a Glock 22 fullsize; the performace was sensational which is what you expect, as far as the grip difference on the slide i dont see any competitive difference I actually prefer the old slide grips just because of the old school nestagia.
