    Off the top of my head, removable backstraps, grip surface, upgraded recoil spring, ambidextrous mag release. There's probably other differences, that's all I can think of.

    IMO choosing either Gen is a matter of preference. Depends on your willingness to spend a little more for the above upgrades, which many will tell you aren't that much of an improvement. Many still prefer Gen 3.

    I have the Gen 3 and love it, added my own aftermarket backstrap for cheap. Not sure about how much of a difference the new spring makes as I've never shot it, can tell you I am extremely happy with the gen3 though, its incredibly accurate out of the box!

    ALSO
    Gen 4--- 3 mags
    Gen 3--- 2 mags

    Extra mag makes up most of the price difference
    Your mileage may vary. Batteries not included.

    I agree with all of the above, I really like my G30SF, easy to carry and very accurate.

    I looked at both Gen 3 SF and Gen 4 the SF model fits my hand better.

    I prefer the grip on the g4. I have big hands but short fingers. The grip is a little smaller with the g4, plus the extra rtf grip helps me to hold it since its hard for me to get my chubby fingers around the handle.

    Welcome to the forum from NW Florida!! If you have access to both you can handle them and see which one feels right to you,there are some differences but not that many when it comes down to shooting them....

    You are paying for that GEN 4 pistol and they extra mag! I don't believe there is one bit of difference in the reliabilty or accuracy of the weapons.
