Externally, one of the first differences most people notice is the grip texture. Gone is the pebble grip texture, replaced by the new Glock RTF (Rough Textured Frame) textured grip. The new RTF texture is on both side grip panels, the backstrap (and the additional modular straps), and on the front grip between the finger grooves. It is more aggressive than any previous grip, giving better purchase with slippery hands or in wet conditions. Some like it, others don’t. Those who don’t argue that it’s a little too aggressive.
So I put it to my own test. I handled it as much as possible and I carried it as much as possible, with no round in the chamber. As advertised, it never fired on that empty chamber. I started carrying it with a round in the chamber, and to my surprise, I found that I was more comfortable carrying it than I had been other handguns. With handguns such as my 1911 being carried with the hammer cocked and the safety on, the thought of that safety being accidentally bumped in the holster, leaving it cocked and ready to fire was unnerving.
If you fall into this boat - interested in a Glock, but unsure about the lack of manual safety - don’t be. Get some instruction, some range time, specifically “Glock-time,” and you’ll soon find your fears are all for naught. I now own eight Glocks - a Gen1, Gen2, Gen3, and five Gen4s - and have fired every model of Glock offered in the US market, except for the G17L. I’ve even fired every variant that is offered; Gen4, Gen3 and SF. Yet with all of those Glock pistols, not once has one negligently discharged.
