    Gen 3 or 4 G23

    I think I've narrowed down my search for my first handgun to the glock. Is it just personal preference between which generation or is the gen 4 alot better? I have heard though of some problems with the gen 4, do these exist? I really leaning towards the gen 4 because I'm left handed but I just don't know. By the way the gun will be used for home defense.

    I don't have any first hand experience with the 4th Gen Glocks but I've been doing some re-search on them.

    It sounds like the .40cal Glocks are running just fine while the 9mm's have had a some issues. But there have also been some reports back that "their" 9mm glock has been trouble free.


    If your interested in the Gen 4 Glock 23 for the reasons you stated. I'd feel comfortable enough to get one with the re-search I've done. But as DJniner has mentioned threads on other the 3rd Gen Glocks have been around for quite a while and have a very good reputation.

    Don't know about any issues with the Gen4, but I do know that I love my Gen3. Actually, I held and looked over a buddies Gen4, and it felt a bit better in the hand than my Gen3. New features are nice, but IMHO not worth trading up for. With that said, I'd say give the Gen4 a try. Don't think you can go wrong.

    Get the Gen 4. Less recoil than Gen 3 and better grip. The Gen 4 "problems" were only with the 9mm's.

    I have a gen 3 G23 and gen 4 G23. Love the gen 4 and have probably 5000 rounds through it with not one problem.

    Differences are minimal,

    If you can get a g23 3rd gen for less than a g23 4th, do that and save yourself alittle money and free from worry
