Started the 10 day thing yesterday. Those that have one,what can I expect as far as recoil with the dual recoil springs? I understand they are not much different than the G3's in recoil. Recoil not an issue as I have a G30SF, G36 and a G26. I like the new texture on the G4's frame and it felt slimmer than the G19 I had from the early 90's. If this one works out I may get one for the wife;). Lets hear it Cal-gunners,thanks in advance.

I have both G3 and G4. The recoil is almost the same for both. I really can't tell the different. Make sure to find some hot ammo (124gr or Nato round) to break in your Glock Gen 4 (50 to 100 rounds of hot ammo then you can start shooting your regular 115gr range ammo)

Rolling, how about for gen 3.. do you need hot ammo to break it in too?

Nope.. Just for the Gen 4 because of the dual recoil springs.

Broke in my G4 G19 with 280 rounds of WWB 115 gr and Monarch 115 gr without a problem at all.

9mm has recoil?

actually, I've never fired a Gen 4, but I love the other G19s I've fired. I'm not wild about trigger feel, but they feel great and shoot well.

Ditto on the WWB loads. I then followed up with some of my Sissy-La-La reloads. No problems at all.
