Gen 1,2 and 3 Glocks are the best. You can have the new crap.

One would think Glock would have worked out any teething problems in a new variant before marketing them to LE. I'm owned one of every Glock generation, including generation 4, and to date never had a problem with function. In fact, I just purchased two of the new G43s - one for me and one for the Boss Lady.

the recoil spring on my g27 3rd gen locked up once, the inside spring jammed inside the outer spring & badly jammed the 27. i managed to get the slide off and threw the spring unit away.

That's what happens when you mess with something that was fine for three generations. Sucks to be them.

Good rule with Glocks is to avoid the intermediate ones and those released within a year of a new rollout.

They always sort out the problems but being a Beta tester for products can be a bit frustrating, doubly so if it is a duty gun and not a range toy.

Good thing they noted the issue during dry fire and not on the street.

Glock will, as they have in the past, refer to the fixes as an "upgrade". They are notorious for releasing stuff too soon. Same thing happened with the Gen 4 when they introduced it. All kinds of problems. Required condsiderable "upgrades". :facepalm:
Generation 3 was the apex of development.

From the LE trainers I've spoken to their issued M&Ps have had the same type of upgrade/fix issues albeit in a shorter timeframe than the Glocks. Most are using the .40. To a man they are all "meh" on that pistol.

I'd love to see similar sample size (as with LE use of Glock, SIG, S&W) of feedback on the Walther PPQ. Or maybe there is a larger sample size in Europe.

Huge Glock guy here, but I agree, the Gen 3 was the apex (although I like the one Gen4 I own).

So I've been thinking about getting a G23 and G27. Would you guys recommend I purchase gen 3's or 4's?

Thanks

Get them both in your hands then decide. What I prefer may feel completely different to you. I have larger hands and much prefer Gen3.

Maybe I missed something but--what's the "M" signify-why M?

VALMET

I believe the "M" indicates "Modified" as in a Gen4 modified for FBI contract.

No polygonal rifling, ambi slide release and other details make it a "modified" version of the G 17.
