    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!"

    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.
