GEN4 has:

RTF3 texture

Add on back straps

Large, reversible mag catch

Dual recoil spring

Non of the changes are really significant. There have been many reports of GEN4 problems, so keep that in mind.

All the reported problems with the Gen4 Glocks have been with the 9x19mm Gen4 Glocks (17 & 19).
There have been no reported problems with the .40S&W, .357SIG and .45GAP Gen4 Glocks.

O'rly?

There have been posts about the .40 models having the same problems as the 9mm. FTF/FTE/poor trigger/strange extractor quality and design/RSA falling apart.

Look at these thread titles I stumbled across on GlockTalk awhile ago:
Glock silent about gen4 issues/concerns

Problems reassembling Gen 4s

Spoke to Glock today on the 4G trigger/trigger bar issue

Huge Glock 26 GEN4 problem

Damn I thoguht I was safe with my 0 2 spring.

My Gen 4 G22 Went Click Instead Of Boom!

Glock Gen4 Trigger bar

Metal frame wore through on gen 4 G22

Are the Gen 4 issues worked out yet?

Major disappointment with my Gen4

Glock 26 Gen 4 Malfunctions

My G23 Gen 4 is out of commission for a week

Glock 23 Gen 4 Problems

Glock gen 4 complaints/comments

New Glock 23 Gen 4, jamming!! ahh!!

So why did Glock design a new 9mm trigger/trigger bar for the Gen 4s?

Gen4 26 at the range....Problem!

Failure to Fire - Gen 4 G19

Gen 4 G19 Issues

I jinxed myself. First G17Gen4 FTE

Why are both my Gen4 triggers soooo awful?

G26 Gen 4 Issues?

GEN4 .40.

Many, many FTF.

My Generation 3 G35 and 22, both with a light mounted! have NEVER jammed.

This particular GEN4 is so bad it is unbelievable. The recoil was clearly less snappy, but the tens of FTF's in exchange were no bargain.
