    Congrats, they made it uglier.

    Grips look nice. I wonder what differences are in the internals. Looking forward to handling one.

    It looks like they tried a fine checkered pattern for the grip. I really don't like any of the poly grips and most Glocks and other poly guns you see will have some kind of rubber overwrap on them. I don't understand how Taurus is the only gun manufacturer that has successfully incorporated rubber grips into the front strap of a poly framed gun. This doesn't even have an adjustable (rubberized) back strap like an M&P or P250. If this is Gen. 4, I'm going to have to wait for Gen. 5.

    I almost ordered one, but decided at the last minute that I didn't really want/need ANY .40. Ordered a G17C instead.

    Some of the folks over at Glock Talk are calling the new slide serrations "fish gills."

    I suppose we can finally put that "Does Glock need a new look" thread to bed...

    wow

    Thats kinda ugly, I agree. But a Glock is a Glock and Glocks Rock!!!! I moved away from Glock not because of function at all just they were kinda bulky in the grip. Did that slim it down any?
    Are the available now?

    IMHO, the 3rd Gen Glocks were fine. Near perfection in simplicity and funtionality. I definitely don't like the look of that slide.

    It's a good thing that a gun doesn't have to look good to work.
    I guess my boss could say that about me!

    I hate the serrations and I am not fond of the dotted sides, but I love the smoothed out finger grooves.

    i do not like the new serrations. i prefer the old ones, it is a classic design. the curved serrations look hokey with the obvious circles in them from the engraving/tooling process... bad. bad. bad.

    Man..I've never seen a Glock and not said 'Yup..That's an ugly gun". They achieved a new personal best with that one. Good thing they work as well as they do.

    Holy crap that is fugly.

    All nonsense aside, I don't think the makers are worried about a decrease in sales, and I don't think buyers are worried about a decrease in reliability: It's still a Glock.

    I would like, however, to know who the Glock "Aesthetics Director" is and how much he makes, because I think I'd have done much better than a slide serration redesign and a finer pattern on the grips.

    Held one in the gun shop yesterday. I kind of like the new grip but really don't like the new slide. The finger grooves don't look much different compared to a 3rd gen. G22.

    The RFT is not a 4th generation. It's just an option that will be available on some models.

    It was not conceived of as a CCW piece. It was conceived of with the gloved "operator" in mind.

    Quite a step backwards from the 3rd gen aesthetically. I'm sure its a tank though.
