    I now have about 250 rounds through my gun. Not a jam yet... accuracy is good... for a "Gun Noob" like me HAHA. I can feel my trigger getting lighter and crisper - and I thought it was great out of the box!

    I really think I have something wrong with my spring however. After comparing it to one in the case at the store.

    Glock is going to send me a new one, but said it could be a few weeks...

    I have shot XDm's - and they are great guns also. I think either is a fine purchase. To me it just boiled down to what fit better in my hands. I actually prefer the grip angle of the Glock over the XDm - it just seemed more of a "natural point" for me. I also liked that the Glock was a little smaller and stream lined.

    I'll post again with an update about how this all turns out. In a week I will be shooting a buddies XDM in .40, which I have shot in the past. I am curious to see if I notice a recoil difference with the dual spring - and lower bore of the Glock. People in other forums refer to the recoil of the Gen4 as more of a "push" than a "flip"... I kind of noticed that at the range tonight, but have nothing to compare it against... and I am a novice/noob.

    Default Glock 22, Gen 4

    Bought a new Glock 22 Gen 4 and have shot 200 rounds of Winchester FMJ target ammo without a single problem. When I broke it down to clean it I noticed the recoil spring seemed to be kind of rough on the end and didn't go back in the barrel the way I thought it should. I called Glock and told them about the problem and they said they hadn't heard that before, and not being able to see it they would just sent me a new recoil spring assembly, at no cost, and guess what? The new spring looks exactly like the old one, actually I can't tell them apart, it's just the way they are made. I wish I was enough of a shooter to know if the smaller grip on the Gen 4 is a benefit to me. I have a 22 gen 2 no fingure groove, and a 19 gen 3, and they all feel good to me.

    Out of 4 Glocks, G-26, 36, 27, and a 21, with maybe 5 to 6 thousand rds thru them, the 27 being the oldest, with well over 2500 thru it, I have never had a gun induced problem, I foolishly traded the 26 for something I thought I wanted more, I intend to get another, as soon as I can work a deal, the 21 spring dont seem to fit just right but the gun shoots fine, in fact its the most accuate handgun I have without a scope

    I have a 3rd Gen G22 and have about 10000 rnds thru it. Only issues I've had is an FTE with a weak recoil spring, a broken slide release and bad ammo (Aguilla). Problems are rare to almost never unlike those shooting other makes when I'm out at the range (weekly).

    Default Gen4 the adjustable Glock!

    In every post on the GlockGen4 the adjustable grip size has not been mentioned.

    This was the major design change, of the Gen4 pistols, but as always, when you change other things, on anything! "That ain't broke" you tend to get results that are not, in some cases optimum, in this case the main spring.

    The first move into double main springs was the compact 9mm the Glock 26, terrific idea (except for using a design that was not asked for, cost Glock $$$$) in the case of the Gen4 mainsprings, extra um-pf has been adjusted for, to lower muzzle flip, for want of a better word.

    Unfortunately it appears the Company has built in a wee bit too much help! Shooting a friends Gen4 Glock 17, next to my Gen3 Glock 17, same ammunition, definitely less felt recoil on the Gen4 Glock 17.

    As I am awaiting a Gen4 Glock19 I won at a Glock match, and while it seems a bit long in coming on the market (Spring redesign?) I feel sure Glock will fix it.

    The unfortunate result of design change, it changes lot's of stuff, stuff you did not consider at the time!

Yours is the first review I have heard regarding the new Gen. 4 Glock and I must say that I am very disappointed in Glock. They had a great working pistol.. should have left well enough alone instead of trying make "improvements"??? If this is what is to be expected from the Gen fours, then they can recall the whole line. I'll stick with my gen two's and three's. They work great!
    50 rounds.......disassembled....cleaned the barrel .....only to find the dual recoil spring jammed up when I tried to reassemble....brand new....thanks Glock...my first handgun! I bought my wife a Sig because I didn't want to buy 2 of the same guns for just this reason....now I'm only burnt out of cash for one gun....reselling this gen 4, taking the hit and buying a M&P.

    Bought my Glock 22 Gen 4 about two weeks ago, have only put about 50 rounds through it but no problem running...
    The recoil spring does seem to hangup on it self,if I turn it a little I can then compress it to get it reinstalled,
    maybe it will loosen up with use, other than that, it stays in position once installed
    Gun shoots great
    My every day carry for the last 1.5 years is the Glock 27, never had any problem with it, same 2 peace spring but not shielded like the Gen 4 22

    The business sense of the Glock group can not be faulted really. The perceived sales advantage that S&W had with the M&P models, the adjustable grip panels. The ease of doing the same with all the empty space they had at the back end of the grips, on Glocks, makes you wonder why they did not do that sooner.

    My shooting mate has the feeling that Glock want to make a lifetime recoil spring, one that would never require replacing. That could quite well be a correct assumption.

    Having visited the Glock Factory in Austria, on two occasions, a lovely little Town called Deutch Wagram, hope I spelled that right! To see the machinery, the overall happiness of the staff, the cleanliness, it is quite apparent that a good product is going to be produced here. Oh, and only people who live here, work here.

    Back to the "Jamming problem" John M. Browning had a lot to do with all recoil operated pistols, a simple design really, the advent of the polymer frames by Glock, and it's recoil damping (the frame flexes) unlike a steel one, that takes every once of shock, tougher on the hands, and gun, caused a huge change in pistol design, by every manufacturer.

    I picked up my free (won at our Clubs Glock match, random pick) Gen4Glock19 yesterday.

    Compeering the strength required to lock the slide back, with a Gen3 Glock 19, the spring is heavier, on the Gen4. Not a very scientific test to be sure, but having been shooting hand guns for 56 years, I have some idea of what one feels like, compared to an other.

    The infamous stove pipes, my shooting buddy had a new spring assembly sent to him From Glock, on his first purchased Gen4 Glock 19, a lighter one! And he has arms like legs!

    I personally have neither heard of, or experienced any malfunctions what so ever with carry loads! None.
    Only WWB or other light target loads, have had problems, still has to be fixed, extra springs for target loads? I don't know, but for those of us who have stated they would be leery of carrying for self defense?

    My Winchester +P+ Ranger T 127g carry loads, they are going to work, first time, every time, all the time, and with less felt recoil. Add the extra death like grip adrenalin gives you? As Crocodile Dundee would say "No worries Mate"
