    Stick with the Gen 3...that's what I would do!

    I sold two Gen 3 19s and picked up two Gen 4 19s. The reason - the smaller grip option.
    Both Gen 4s were 100% reliable for me. I then sold them to a friend who really wanted them and now have two Gen 2 19s - prefer the no finger groove option.

    In all I have had 6 Gen 3 19s, two Gen 4 19s, and now two Gen 2 19s. Glock 19s come and go and probably will come and go again (or not ).

    But I do like them.

    IIRC, Glock "fixed" what wasn't broken by making some changes to the extractor on all guns in 2010.

    Just cleaned my 19. What was I thinking? I felt like I had betrayed it as it has been a fine pistol lol. Enough said. Glad y'all put some sense in me. Thanks

    pre 2010 Glock 19 Gen 3's are sought after. The new Gen 4's are generally ****, everyone knows it.

    Are you really gaining anything by trading aside from gimmicks? The gen 4 shoots just as accurately. I personally prefer gen 3 flocks as the gen four offers nothing that I see as better over a gen 3. I wod keep what you got, but it's your call

    I would stay with the gen 3. There's no real advantage to the 4 unless you have smaller hand and like the reduced grip size.

    The only other advantage is if you have a Glock 23 in .40 because the dual captive recoil spring/guide rod helps with the snappy recoil of the .40 round.

    My view opposes that of most of the responders to this thread. I've owned and fired both Gen 3 and Gen 4 Glocks, and am of the opinion that Gen 4 is strictly (though only slightly, in 9mm) superior to Gen 3.

    - better grip texture while hands are slick. No stipling required.

    - better mag release

    - better for people with large or small hands

    - beavertails!

    - dual captive recoil spring = whhhooooaaaaaaa... absolute improvement in any chambering above 9mm, and a marginal improvement in 9mm offerings. The 19 Gen 4 recoils like a squirtgun.


    This all goes off the rails if you get a bad 17 or 19 copy with BTF issues. I haven't run into this at all. My 2011 19 Gen 4 (with the 337 extractor) throws brass to the right. I like the 19 Gen 4 enough that I'm considering making my next purchase another of the same.
    Currently own: Beretta PX4 9mm, Glock 23 (Gen 4), Glock 19 (Gen 4) x2
