Glock Gen. 3, 4, 5: Which One Is Right For Me?


Published on May 8, 2019

The venerable Glock is synonymous with reliability and ruggedness, proving itself over the years as a worthy contender in the self-defense and personal protection realms. With five total iterations to its name, Gaston’s children each come with their own quirks and attributes making them unique in their own right. I snagged three generations of Glock 19 pistols from the Guns.com warehouse – the Gen. 3, Gen. 4 and Gen. 5 — to evaluate the similarities and differences among these series.

  1. Im not sure what Gen my step son has
    but I cant stand the trigger ..

    bites my finger every time , its like a few pieces that make up the “safety ” on a D.A.O. pistol and it pinches the skin on my trigger finger
    I also have 1 beef with the .40 cal ( again not sure of what Gen.) but the lower portion of the chamber is part of the feed ramp , and Glock doesnt want you to use hot loaded 40 cal ( Im a reloader) because it has the potential to Kaboom and blow down the magazine due to the lower portion of the cartridge not supported in the chamber
    that kinda kill the deal for me

    other than that, nicely made..if I could smooth up that trigger so it dont bite and get it down to about a 3# pull , Id own one…oh and hopefully they have fixed the Gen. that had the feed ramp that took some of the chamber support away

    bites my finger every time , its like a few pieces that make up the “safety ” on a DAO pistol and it pinches the skin on my trigger finger

    other than that, nicely made..if I could smooth up that trigger so it dont bite and get it down to about a 3# pull , Id own one

  3. Why not a ruger mark , I have the 9mm and 1911 both with crimson lazer . one I carry the most is the 1911 45 caliber . Winchester bonded is the ammo I carry in both guns

    1. I posted not because I like the gun HD , I posted because its information that #1 brings in readers to the site, but #2 just for the sheer fact that this stuff is interesting to read. It’s part of what we, (I do) here, which is “(feed the site.)”

      Method to the madness thing, right?

      Just because I posted it, doesn’t mean I agree with it. Thousands read our great site, so we have to be flexible to some degree.

      Also, just look at the feedback like EOTS just gave, priceless!

  4. Understand mark . Just who owns the company it hard to pen down . A friend of mine that own a gun shop told me it started in Israel I can’t find nothing about that . Just adding to what you have started thanks mark

    1. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised, irrelevant at this point, Israel controls everything, even how Trump wipes his ass.

      A quick search found this HD

  5. From the link mark … “Ultra-Orthodox people recoil from militarism and walking around with a handgun isn’t exactly something we grew up on,” says Shmuel, a Hasidic student. “Once, if you walked with a handgun you’d be seen as a sheigetz (goy). Today it’s not like that, due to the security situation.”

    1. LOL I thought you’d get a kick out of that! Again changing the landscape to fit their bullshit agenda!
