    Glock 19 3rd or 4th generation?

    I'm in a predicament on which glock 19 to purchase. I'm pretty familiar with both and like how they feel in my hands. I found the 3rd gen for 509 with an extra mag and range bag. I can get the 4th gen for 540 with the standard additions. I am curious if the new recoil spring is worth the extra money and one less mag in my situation. I had looked at the sig p250 and sp2022 and the s&w M&P 9mm but the glock reputation is weighing on me. Thanks for your help!

    The 4th generation ones are nice, but I still prefer the second model of the 3rd generation.

    My Gen 4 Glock is the best so far. Get your Glock and put a 3.5 pound connector and ZEV spring kit put in it for probably $30.00 (youtube probably has a video on it) and you should be in good shape. If you can afford it the Fulcrum Trigger is a great buy.

    Ahhh...not slighting the Glock, but SIG has a pretty good reputation in its own right.

    Some people had issues for a while with the gen 4's when they came out. I cannot say why or if those issues were valid. I have a recent gen 4 and I'm quite happy with it. I see no difference in reliaility between it and other Glocks I have owned. Glocks are reliable and strong firearms. Any of them that you purchase will function for you. Mine has no additional work done. I figure it is in Glock's self interest to make it work right from the factory. And it does.

    If you are right handed you don't need an ambi mag release. If the gen 3 fits your hand you don't need the interchangeable backstraps. I don't think you will notice any difference in the recoil spring. I am right handed and the gen 3 fits my hand well so I prefer the gen 3. All the mods on the gen 4 are useless for me and all they do is add more parts. I like simple. I like my gen 3 G19.

    Gee, I guess I'm from the old school.........I like my firearm to be the way I want, right out of the box........." How much did you pay for your Glock?" " "$500 with two mags." " What's that other stuff?" " Well, the sights suck, so I put better sights on." " How much were those?" " $150." " And the trigger wasn't to my liking, so I put a spring kit in." " That was $100." " Then I got a different trigger, that was $200." So, your $500 dollar plastic, turned into $900 plastic. I guess you really have to like a Glock, because I could buy 2 firearms, with better sights, standard, a better trigger, better safety, and stainless slide,for $900.
