I have seen some posts on the internet about issues with the Gen 4, I just picked up a G26 gen 4 and was wondering anyone has had issues regarding the Gen 4, or us it just a rumor mill from Glock haters?
The issues were around the dual recoil springs for the Glock 19 and 17. The dual recoil spring that shipped originally were the same ones as those used in the 40cal versions and a little too stiff for lighter ammo. The springs were version 01 on the 17 and 03 on the 19. If you call Glock, they will send you free of charge a 02, or an 04 spring for you Glock 17 or 19 and that works beautifully for 115 grain ammo (or any other kind). I've had no problems with my 19 and 115 grain ammo with the new spring. I assume that with the Glock 26 since even Gen 3 was a dual recoil spring, this issue should already have been ironed out, and you should have 0 reliability problems
