Picked this up this afternoon, Generation 4 G-22 with factory NS. If you're experienced with Glocks, as I am, you will immediately appreciate the subtle improvements, particularly the reduction in grip circumference, while subtle, it greatly enhances the feel of the pistol.

Another major improvement is the magazine release, simply superb. Also of significance is the enhanced texture of the frame surface, while not nearly as aggressive as the RTF, its easier on your hands, and your clothing, while serving admirably at increasing your control of the firearm.

I'm gonna run 1500 rounds through it Saturday afternoon, all premium grade ammo, so I'll wait till then to chime in with my impressions on the dual recoil spring, which on the mini-Glocks are notorious for spitting brass directly back into the shooters face until broken in, and has already been the subject of a redesign on the Gen4 G-17s(02)which had experienced widespread FTF/FTE, binding, ect.. Those issues appear to have been corrected, however they were as far as I know, never associtated with the .40s.

Not sure, perhaps a combination of the frame, and backstrap inserts, which I'll never even muck with, the pistol is perfect(for my hand)as is. Its referenced as MBS on the frame, which signifys "modular backstrap!"

United States Patent 4,539,889
Glock September 10, 1985
Automatic pistol with counteracting spring control mechanism

Abstract

An automatic pistol comprises a frame, a barrel slidable on the frame and having a cartridge-receiving rear end, a breech slidable on the frame and engageable over the rear end of the barrel to form a cartridge chamber, and firing mechanism including a firing element and a firing pin operatively linked thereto.

The element is movable on the breech toward and away from the barrel between a rear position in which the firing pin is out of the cartridge chamber and a front position with the firing pin projecting forward into the cartridge chamber for firing a cartridge in the chamber when the firing element moves from the rear to the front position.

A spring is braced against the element and urges same into the front position. A trigger is movable on the frame between an actuated and an unactuated position. An abutment engageable with the firing element in an intermediate position thereof between its front and rear positions is displaceable backward on the frame.

A link is connected between the trigger and the abutment for displacing same backward into the rear position from the intermediate position on displacement of the trigger from the unactuated to the actuated position and for displacing the abutment out of operative engagement with the firing element on displacement of the trigger into the actuated position for displacement of the firing element by the spring means into the front position.

Thus the starting position of the abutment for the firing bolt or hammer is at an intermediate location in the travel path of same.

Glock May 2, 1989
Automatic pistol

Abstract

A pistol has a frame, a barrel slidable on the frame and having a cartridge-receiving rear end, and a breech slidable on the frame and engageable over the rear end of the barrel to form a cartridge chamber. A standard slide carries the barrel and breech. A firing element and a firing pin operatively linked thereto are movable on the breech toward and away from the barrel between a rear position in which the firing pin is out of the cartridge chamber and a front position with the firing pin projecting forward into the cartridge chamber for firing a cartridge in the chamber when the firing element moves from the rear to the front position. A relatively strong firing spring braced against the firing element urges same into the front position and a relatively weak spring braced against the firing element urges same into the rear position. A trigger movable on the frame between an actuated and an unactuated position and an abutment engageable with the firing element and displaceable backward on the frame are linked together so as to displace the firing element back into the rear position on displacement of the trigger from the unactuated to the actuated position and to displace the abutment out of operative engagement with the firing element on displacement of the trigger into the actuated position for displacement of the firing element by the springs into the front position.

Didn't realize that. My only Glock has had Traction Grips on it since the first week I bought it......can't see it.

Congrats. I have the Gen4 G-19 that I just ran 1000 rounds through today. I personally like the new spring system. I had 2 stove pipe jams in the first magazine. I was worried, but the remaining 9987 rounds went flawlessly. Limp Wristed, Sideways (always a killshot :neener:), and one handed, all went without flaw. I actually shot the Gen3 G-19 for 1 mag directly before, and I must say, I like the grip much better. I personally like the "m" backstrap, but then again, I'm used to the Gen3...

Either way, Congrats!! Cant wait for the Range Report.

Weird, looks like the grip texture has a quilted pattern that is not consistent with the other Gen 4's I've seen, which BTW is not a negative critisism, just odd that's all, do they make them in different grip patterns already?

I have never had any problems with the Gen 3's so that's what I put my confidence in, but I'm sure the Gen 4's are just as solid.

I like the 2nd and 3rd Generations personally, but thats me, I'm old school.
