View Full Version : Gen 4 G37 slide thickness?

Has anyone seen the Gen 4 G37? I wonder if the slide would be more narrow like a standard 17/22/36 slide now that they have a new recoil system for the 4th generations?

Has FHP taken delivery of the new 37s?

As of now, there are no Gen4 G37's. Florida will take delivery in June. No one can answer your question regarding a change in slide width, but I suspect there will be no change.

Reason I ask, is I picked up an XD service size in .45 GAP and notice the slide is more narrow (actually the same size as their service size .40/9) though more narrow, it actually has a dual recoil assembly like Glock is going to.

It would be easier to find holsters, it would be a bit lighter, and most of all less bulky. I like my G38, but would be ecstatic if it had a true G19/36 width slide!

Interestingly, in comparing the XD with my G38 their OAL is the same. The Glock is just a tad shorter in the grip.

I love the GAP cartridge. Heck, it's what got me into reloading in the first place. I just wish the other companies would make the smaller guns as the cartridge would allow for and the rounds popularity would no doubt increase.
