gen 2 vs gen 3 G20?

I have had both but I never had any aftermarket experience with the gen 2. Can anyone give some insight into how the versions vary when it comes to accessories and other aftermarket considerations? i.e.; will the gen 3 stuff from LWD, glockmeister, etc. work on either version?

Are there any notable differences between the reliability of the gen 2 & 3 when it comes to firing the myriad of 10mm ammo?

IIRC, the G2 vs G3 are the same when it comes to the parts, most of the differences are cosmetic (please correct me if I'm incorrect). But if it were me and I had to choose either the G2 or G3, I would lean to the G3, mainly because aftermarket parts are readily available. If you don't like the finger groves, those can be removed.

Just my $.02.

The Gen 2's barrels are not as supported as the barrels of the Gen 3. If you are going to shoot some real hot 10mm (Underwood or BB) I would suggest an aftermarket barrel or a Gen 3 Glock barrel.

I really love my gen 3 model. I never shot a gen 2 G20.

While I've never owned the 20 I have had both the g2 and g3 in G22. I personally prefer the G3 but that may be only because the grooves actually fit my hand.

I shot the gen 2 I had a couple of times, but it's just a fuzzy memory. What I remember most about it was that I could not get used to the grip. My son wanted it, anyway, so I gave it to him.

This was his idea:
