i am not so sure of the details of that supposed ban but glocks from USA are available through guns for the good guys. gen 4 not yet but maybe after the gun ban.

Is the recoil spring guide still plastic or metal?

from what i read at thefirearmblog it will still be plastic but will all be captive dual spring (ala glock 26 recoil spring/rod) design

Any idea of what the texture of the RTF3 is like ? I never opted for a RTF because I did not want to take the chance of it snagging my clothes during conceal carry when I sit down / stand up. What is the difference in the texture ?

These options on the gen4 are mostly to suit each type of individual preference, with the exception of the recoil spring and so, the gen3, given that I am right handed and sits very well in my hand, still is a good piece of firearm.

The gen4 doesnt seem to provide any real plus from that perspective. I guess to upgrade a gen3, I wonder if we can just pop the gen4 spring assembly into the gen3, (which should work).

the opening on the frame (where the recoil assembly will sit) is larger on the gen 4
