Hello Mas

In your experience, are the Gen 3 G23s & G22s durable & reliable?

I've read stories of these guns being more prone to breakage and being unreliable with weapon lights attached. Presumeably the Gen 4 was designed to correct this?

My carry gun is a Gen 3 G23 with WW silvertips. It has been reliable, even with the M3 weapon light attached. Can I trust this setup or should I trade up to a Gen 4?

I'm one of those who's had no problems with G22 with or without the light, but that's one guy and one gun. Some others have had problems: see this thread for a wide-ranging discussion of issues and fixes:http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1343147

Make sure your springs are up to date, and if you use a unit that screws on, such as the TLR, make sure it's not screwed on too tightly.

Bottom line: if YOURS is working fine, there's probably no reason to change.
