GLOCK To Drop Gen 4 Models
Again rumors, but I hear that GLOCK is going to discontinue Gen 4 pistols. My understanding is the company wants to focus on new technology such as the Gen 5 models. I do hear that GLOCK will still service Gen4 pistols and there will be plenty of replacement parts. Bye-bye GLOCK 40 auto Gen 4 pistols.
From a brand perspective it makes sense. Why have legacy product like the Gen 4 pistols when the newer and better gen 5 pistols are what you want customers to focus on.
There are still plenty of LE agencies equipped with the .40 AUTO.
Is 40 more powerful than 9mm?
Heck, yes! The .40 AUTO has more kinetic energy than the 9mm due to higher projectile mass given equal velocity. Higher energy and a wider, flatter bullet make the .40 objectively better than 9mm FMJ in most circumstances. The greatest advantage with the .40 Auto is that it is substantially more powerful than 9mm in most handguns.
