Nah... some swear that the trigger internals are "better" on a 3 vs. a 4, but IMHO, there is no appreciable difference. I've been shooting Glocks in competition for many years, with thousands of rounds through both versions, I can't see any difference.Is there a significant difference between the two?
Grip texture is different. I like the 4 better. The 4 has adjustable blackstrap profiles, which I really like. The mag release button is larger, better positioned and ambidextrous on the 4. That is hugely important to me, since reloads are on the clock and I need to hit the mag release button and move on. Ambi is a who cares.
The recoil spring is beefier on the 4, using dual springs. Another who cares for me.
There are other differences that may or may not matter to you, me or anyone else. But, it's almost religion with Gen 3 vs. Gen 4 Glocks.
I had a Gen 3 for years & years. When the 4 came out, and I tried it, it was an easy decision for me to make the switch. But, many, many people swear the 3 is better.
