If you use the search button you should get listed what you want.
using google there is plenty information too.

there haven issues with the gen4 9mm.. mostly with the g19...and the latest gen3 some seems to have erratic ejections issues as well as with the gen4s..

the gen4 has interchanble interchangeable back straps but that depend of the size of your hands.. the trigger on gen4 is harded than gen3.. the grip texture is different too. the mag release is extended, so for people with small hands is easier to release the mag..

for ME, I think the recoil is little lighter in the gen4, due the double recoil spring..

Gen 4 9mm issue

The issue was the recoil spring was the same for the .40 and 9mm and only really had issues with 115grain, the 124 NATO and 147 grain bullets didn't have issues... Or at least I didn't hear of any.

My g19 gen 4 had the RSA 041 and I got FTEs, sometimes stovepipes with 115gr, 124gr and even with 147gr gold dot, JHP.. there was when I called glock and they sent me the 043 (if I recall).. I havent had more FTE but sometimes some brass hit my head, or eject a 6 o clock,up.. or weak at 3 o clock..

I think apex tactical has for sell a new ejector that "seems" to solve this issue..
