Just now recently lurking on GT again, and now have the means to go along with the hankering to get a 10MM Glock.

I recently found (2) Gen 4 FDE guns, G19 & G21 Gen 4 both in FDE, and I LOVE the way both of them feel in the hand and shoot. Unfortunately for me, the 10MM slides from LW do not work with the Gen 4 frames as that was my plan originally.

So on to my question, any of you guys have experience with BOTH the Gen 3 AND Gen 4 G20's?

I am wanting to get feedback on which to get.

I myself happen to like the Gen 4 guns I have shot, and love the two I own. I like the grip size without the added back straps, I like the larger mag release, I prefer the texturing of the Gen 4's to the Gen 3's, and I do like the Gen 4 RSA's.

My Gen 4 G19 and G21 do shoot softer than their Gen 3 counter parts, but IMHO, it's not enough of a difference to factor into the decision.

Thanks for your time

Well I ordered brass, 8# of long shot, 1K of 180gr extreme bullets, 5K case of LP primers, dies, powder measure, powder funnel, case gauge, tool head, etc. All I need now is a 10 MM Glock to shoot this stuff out of........

Have you thought of any other types of handguns besides Glocks?

Yes but as much as people dislike Glocks I like them, I have the most trigger time behind the Glock platform than any other, parts are easy to come by, the durability is a non issue, they're easy to work on and maintain, and they can take a beating.......

So my first 10MM will be a Glock, just trying to gather opinion on Gen 3 VS Gen 4........:supergrin:

Gotcha, I like Glocks, too... Just never tried one in 10mm. Good luck.

Now that is what I call a logical thought process! A 10mm Glock is a nice pistol.

It will probably boil down to what feels best in your hand.

By the way, welcome back!

Well after much deliberation this morning, I went down to the local LE store, and I ended up leaving with a Gen 3 G20SF. I already have a G21 Gen 4, so figured it would be nice to have a full size of each Gen, and also in looking at aftermarket support right now the stuff that's out besides barrels is for the Gen 3 guns. IE: RSA, Springs, Slides, etc, etc.

Put 100 rounds of 180gr American eagle down range with it, not one hiccup, I know that's not a lot but it's what I had time for and I didn't want to spend too much on ammo with the reloading components I ordered already en route.

Have en route (1) Box of Underwood 180gr TMJ, and (1) Box of their 180gr Golden Sabres as well.

From Graf's I have 5K LPP (CCI), 8# of Longshot, and the 10MM dies, and 500 pcs of Starline brass.

Have 1K of Starline backordered direct from them.

And from Brian enos a spare tool head for the 550 with powder die, caliber conversion kit, and another Powder Measure so I can just leave it on and make it truly quick change.

Also have a LW barrel en route for my G21 to shoot lead through it.

Going to wait on the barrel for the G20 until I see how it goes with the stock barrel for now.

Thanks everyone for their input.

Alrighty then. Just in time for the weekend. Next up, the range report for your home-baked goodies!

Congratulations on the Gen3 20! I love mine, and I am sure that you will love yours.

Not that fast unfortunately, the order from Graf's and Brian Enos is still not in with the powder, brass, primers, and stuff for the press.

But this is like the 3rd time I have ordered from TJConvera and couldn't be happier, they ship quick.

So of course for the first time since I have lived in this house UPS comes today at a different time than usual, missed the delivery of the rest of the goodies, but I was able to call for them to hold the package at the local shipping center, but won't be able to go pick it up until later tonight, much later than I expected.

Got another goodie today for the G20, I wasn't planning on an extended barrel since I don't hunt, but the shop I go to for these things locally only had a 6" KKM barrel, so that's what I ended up with.......I didn't want to wait for a standard length barrel to come in, and all the reloading stuff is in so.......:whistling:
