I don't know much about Glocks but I did just recently buy a Gen 3 G23 and I can tell you that I love it! The G23 gets a big thumbs up from me.

I used to love the Glock 23... but I've grown away from the 40 caliber... so the Gen4 Glock 19 took its place for me. I love the size and the Gen4 does great in the 40 caliber.

That's a pretty good price for everything that's included. If you're interested in one, I'd jump at that. Get a Lone Wolf conversion barrel so that you can shoot 9mm as well.

The G23 Gen 4 is awesome. My G23 is Gen 3, but I would have grabbed a Gen 4 if one had been available at the time. The mag release on the Gen 4 is a nice improvement, the extra mag is a plus, and the new recoil spring makes a notable difference with the G23. The rounds and Trijicon sights round that out to a very sweet deal. Jump on it.

Glocking in the free world...

I'm gonna run out of Glock puns someday, not today, but someday.

For Glock stuff, see here; www.glockbooks.com www.glockworx.com www.customizeyourglock.com www.glock.com www.glockstore.com www.robarguns.com www.boatmanbooks.com .

I'd heard - stuff about the Glock Gen 04 line but they may have worked out the problems. Some Glockers prefer the Gen 03 models but I'd buy a Glock 19 or 23 Gen 04 series. I'm left handed & like the new mag release system.
NOTE: gen 04 Glock magazines will NOT work in older Glock Gen 02/03 firearms. Keep that in mind when you buy parts or magazines.

I do not own any Glocks now but I do like the limited run of FDE Lipsey's Glock pistols.

Actually, the new Glock mags do work in previous versions. My G23 Gen 3 is currently occupied by a new mag.

The confusion is because:
The Gen 4s can not use older gen mags, *if you reverse the mag catch to make it left handed*. This is because earlier versions don't have the left hand cut out.
