Correct, but it is possible to put a beavertail on a previous generation.

But the Gen 4 Glocks had "growing pains" when they first came out. It was the the first year of them having 2 piece recoil springs in their mid size and full size guns. This caused some problems that were eventually worked out.

I have a G4 20 that has the 2 piece recoil springs and have had no problems.  What type of issues did they have?

Failure to feed , failure to eject and some people , including myself ,  had rust pop up on them. I had a Glock 27 Gen 4 and mine had rust form on it and I am very careful to keep mine wiped down good. As far as I know the Gen 4's are fixed now.

Wonder if/when they’ll switch over to Gen 5 for the large frame 45/10mm guns. I’d like to see a G21 Gen 5 FS MOS personally.

The first two introduced were the Glock 17 Gen 4 and Glock 22 Gen 4 in early 2010, followed by the 19, 23, 26, 27 and every other 9mm-frame Glock.

      Help with an "Odd-duck"; Intratec Tec-38?
      I picked up an oddball little Derringer, apparently made by Intratec back in the 90's or so, called the Intratec Tec-38. If anybody has a schematic or an exploded view of same, I could use a look at it, thanks!
      It looks like this:

      Before you suggest it, Numrich Arms (Gun Parts Corp) does not have one on their website, I've looked.

      I bought my wife a M&P9 EZ for a car gun because she couldn't rake the slide on a regular M&P. I just bought a Taurus G3 for me just for giggles. Guess what? She can rack it as good as a M&P9 EZ. To go along with that the G3 double actions on the second shot if the first one fails to fire.The trigger is super and the magazines that come with the gun are 15 and 17 rounds. I've always been a M&P fan but that could change.  You people have got to check it out.

      Picked up a Stoeger STR-9.
      Got it from local Rural King for $338.42. Came in cardboard box with info, 3 back straps and 3 15 round mags.
      Made in Turkey. Very Glock like inside and shoots as good as a Glock 19 for me.
      I would compare to Glock gen3/4 G19 model.
      Standard 3 dot sights but are metal. Parts do not seem to be interchangeable with Glocks but it does fit Glock 19 holsters.
      Put 500 rounds thru it so far with 2 failures to completely eject fired casings, strong RSA and 3 times slide locked back with rounds still in mag, found out I was riding up on slide lock.
      Sight are POA/POI for me and groups at least as well as any Glock 9mm I have owned.
