Glock 23 gen 4? ...anyone??
I picked up a G23 gen 4 today.... haven't been on the site for a while, so I did a search to see if anyone has posted up any first hand experience with one of the new gen 4 models... didn't come up with anything!
Propably sounds a little crazy to some, but I sold my gen 3, to pick up the latest gen 4. The reason...... I love my glock! but I don't have the largest hands, so the grip size of it was always just large enough that the front strap of the grip felt thick and blocky. Now, the gen 4 is only slightly smaller in grip size.... some would say nearly unoticeable.... but for me, when held side by side, the difference was there! The gen 4 just feels that much better, and more natural in my hand.
The revised texture of the gen 4 is something that doesn't strike me as more, or less, desirable than the previous gen 3. I've heard plenty of complaints about it.... I guess I'm just indifferent to it. However, the reduced grip circumference, coupled with the larger, easier mag release... and my curiosity about the performance of the new recoil assembly led me to sell my gen 3, in favor of the latest and greatest(I hope:image035:).
I sort of regret selling the gen 3 first, as it would have made for an interesting comparison to shoot them side by side... but I had plenty of trigger time behind the older g23, that I think I can give an honest opinion about the differences, if any....
I'll post it up!:yup:
