    Has anyone seen or shot a Gen4 Glock 23?

    Does any store in Alaska have them?


    Thanks!

    There's no Gen 4's for sale in Fairbanks that I am aware of. Sportsman's has a few RTF Gen 3's, but that's it. I handled a few Gen 4's when I was in Virginia a few months ago. The adjustable back strap was a nice feature, but I'm still not sold on the RTF grip. My Gen 3 fits my hand just fine, so I don't see any reason to upgrade.

    I've read a few complaints recently about the Gen 4's. Supposedly there have been issues with the dual recoil spring jamming things up. You might want to see what the guys on GlockTalk.com have to say.

    I've only heard of the Gen4 "9mm" having any problems and it's been reported to me that it's only for the first 200 rounds or so until the double spring breaks in, similar to a break in for the 1911. Should be good to go on the larger cartridges.
