GLOCK's Very Best Year/Gen?

Hey, if you were to venture the "perfect" year of Glock-making -- the height of reliability and well-madedness, what year and which gen would that be? I hear about "early Gen 3" and stuff like "nothing's like a Gen 1 G17" and all sorts of that kind of stuff. And, I guess this is not an absolute. When was the "perfect" 17 made? The perfect 19? Etc? What a fun game this, right?

PS: Holy crap, 401 posts already! Wow!

Gen 2.5. Like the finger groves, no use for the light rail. Long before the recent Gen 3 issues.

My vote is my 2.5 gen glock 27{1996} because the rear rails are like 1 and a half of my newer glock 27{2001} but i cant complain about my rtf 22 cause that gun is great you could stick you hand in greese and shoot that gun fine without loosing your grip at all.

1989 G17 - 100% reliable so far. My favorites though are the gen4 subcompacts.

Gen3 RTF2. All goodness, no ill manners (spitting in one's face - I say, really?) Bonus points for fish gills.

I think the Gen 2's are perfection. Followed by the Gen 3's.

Glock needs to get with the program and take their guns back to this era.

I think that's wishful thinking though.

I have a 2nd gen 23 and 19 and would not trade them for a newer one. We were just issued the 30sf and are having the ftrtb issues. They have the upgraded trigger bar in them.

I like the third generation baby Glocks from a couple years ago.

The year they got the 34 and 35 out, they had their ***** together then. Gen 3s were then complete, as was the 9/40 line. 21/20/30/29 was out, the line was complete at that point. No need for that GAP BS.

Only other better thing I can think of is the SF line coming out, but they had issues at first then, both of them, 21 and the 30. :(

Gen 2's 3 letter (AAA) prefix's, whatever year.

My G-27 is a 2.5 gen, but Gen 3, baby Glocks are OK.

I truly believe that each gen was better than the last. They ALL had their speed bumps with beta testing and subsequently "perfected". Once the 4th version is ironed out with time, could be their best yet.

You mean the comfortable 45's that have yet to have any "issues" whatsoever? Truthfully, if you want a sure thing, buy any GAP if you want to be certain not to have a problem with the pistol.
