    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:

    These are just the posts I remember and can find.
