The first of 1,670 Gen4 G37's and 1,670 G39's have been delivered to the FHP. Training of FHP trainers starts real soon. They will use Safariland Holsters & Mag Carriers, Surefire and Streamlight lights. Troopers are being given the opportunity to buy back their service .40 caliber Beretta's and G27's.

Bravo, Florida!:wavey:

Nice. Any news as to when the Gen4 37's will be consumer available?

Probably as soon as Glock completes the order to the FHP. I'm guessing 4 weeks.

I'm anticipating the Gen4 models of all Glocks, but my buddy has G4 G17 and I'm not knocked over with it. I don't think that it will make me replace my G3 G23.

Glock will soon be releasing a lighter dual recoil spring assembly for the Gen4 G17. I like the one mine came with.

are the gen4 glocks having problems? i sure hope not i'm really looking forward to getting the gen4 g38. are the recoil springs too tight or something?

A few shooters have experienced problems with the Gen4 G17 due to it's stiff recoil spring and cheap, underpowered ammo. There have been no problems with the Gen4 G22 and I expect zero problems with the Gen4 GAP's.

Good for them! I'm sure they'll be glad to see the Berettas go. I know I'll be glad to turn mine in. :steamed::rofl:

It must be awesome to work for an agency like FHP that issues a BUG. At my place we can't even use dept ammo to qual with our BUGs, have to supply your own.

Great setup FHP!

FHP does not issue a BUG. Troopers carry their own, after approval and qualification. The 39's will be carried by BOI personnel. Alot carry the 27, and I know one who carries a 29.

Does anyone know what load FHP is going to use? That is the real question.

No pics yet? :crying:

Anyone know if the slide thickness will be/is narrower, more in line with the G26/17/19, compared to the Gen3s? IMO thats the only draw back to GAPs.
