GLOCK 23 Gen4 Info

The GLOCK 23 Gen4, in .40, introduces revolutionary design changes to the pistol that combines compact dimensions for both open and concealed carry, with minimum weight-despite its large magazine capacity. The Modular Back Strap design lets you instantly customize its grip to adapt to an individual shooter’s hand size. The surface of the frame employs the new scientifically designed, real-world-tested, Gen4 rough textured technology. Internally, the new GLOCK dual recoil spring assembly substantially increases the life of the system. A reversible magazine catch, changeable in seconds, accommodates left or right-handed operators. The G23 Gen4 in .40 caliber retains the GLOCK accessory rail for your attachments.

    Great Gun Fo Every Day Carry
    I bought this Gun about 3 months ago. I have a Smith &Wesson & Springfield 40 caliber. No comparison the Glock Rocks. I replaced the factory guide rod, with the super heavy tungsten guide rod. Wow what a differen...ce. I have from a 22 caliber to 45 caliber guns. This Glock 23 Gen 4 puts them all to shame. I love the power and accuracy. more

    I was introduced to handguns with my grandfather's Colt 1911 .45, and that brand holds a special place in my heart. Next second favorite handgun brand is a tie: Glock and Sig. Glock is certainly reliable, as everyone kno...ws. I shoot the .40 S&W as well as the 9MM, but the Gen 4 Glock is hard to beat, even by an all steel weapon. This brand I can enthusiastically recommend, and is usually less expensive than a Colt or a Sig. If you are looking to obtain an uber reliable handgun you can not go wrong with a Glock for a very reasonable price. more

    The Glock 23 is my baby and my everyday carry gun. When it comes to quality and reliability you can not beat Glock. I have had this gun for 2 years now and have thousands of rounds through it without one jam or misfire. ...The .40 gives a nice little kick that keeps makes it much more fun to shoot than a 9mm. I plan on keeping this gun for my lifetime and I have no doubt it will outlive me. more

    I will keep this short and sweet. It’s a Glock, therefore there isn’t much more to say on that end. It is durable and accurate. If you’re new to .40 S&W then starting here is a good place to start. The first pistol... I owned was a Gen 2 G23, this Gen-4 is just a little better at controlling the snappy muzzle climb of .40. New shooters of this caliber have one thing to look forawrd to and that is muzzle control under rapid fire. Not painful and not unpleasant, just different. The only reason I purchased this G23 was so I can order a G32 barrel and have both caliber options. I carry it in the standard .40 configuration, simply because I keep forgetting to order the .357 Sig barrel. It’s not my favorite pistol, yet it keeps finding it’s way into my day to day carry rotation. Which means I trust my life to a Glock .40. Earns 4 out of 5 simply because it is what it is, and that is a handgun that is well built and in a caliber that has been proven effective. It earns another point due to the availability of caliber conversion if you want a .357 Sig barrel. more

    The Glock 23 40 cal is my first Glock and I love it. Adding a Crimson Trace Lightguard was the final touch. It's easily concealed and comfortable. Whether in the woods or range, this pistol performs swimmingly every time.... Highly recommend this firearm. more

    I wasn't sure about buying this gun cause of the big debate war on the internet about the 9mm vs the 40 sw. I own both now 9mm and 40cal. Those who complain about the 40 being inaccurate or flippy just need to get a tenn...is ball and strengthen their hands and wrist I guess. Recoil is the same if not less with the 40. Or maybe cause it's a Glock .40????? 40 cal cartridge a is a good choice. Don't buy into all the introweb hype. 9 vs 40. Glad I bought it. This will be my main carry and everyday use firearm. Thank you Buds for the fast shipping, but you need to increase the time one has to cancel a order! Make sure you 100{384b9010f85e5e822152589587331b4e22c38f50cac943461af3a79982c3c308} on your purchase before hitting the submit button cause you only got a hour or two to change your mind. But I can say now that the glock 23 was the best choice in the 40cal line of any gun. more

    Glock 23
    Bought this handgun after selling a Smith & Wesson 9mm Shield. I did not like some of the things happening at S&W worldwide mega-headquarters. BTW Smith & Wesson is now owned by an ivestment group that sells ...company shares on the stock market. Do you really want to trust your life to a company that puts shareholder profits first? Not me. OK on to the Glock 23. I really wanted a H&K USP 40, but could not justify $1,100 for a handgun. Caught the Glock 23 on sale at Academy for $539( $30 off regular price). Simple design, easy to break down, not very sexy looking, but Glock doesn't worry about esthetics and neither do I. All it has to do is go bang when I pull the trigger. Brought it to a friends fishing camp in the marsh and set up a simple plywood target. First time firing at 15 feet all shots within 3" circle. Very accurate to around 25 feet. Not a single FTF or FTE from 150 rounds. A bit of kick and muzzle flip, but that is to expected from a lightweight gun and a big round. Practice and a little change in grip and stance should fix that. Would not hesitate to recommend the Glock 23 or full size 22 chambered in .40. For less than $200 the .40 models will accept third party conversion barrels (that includes a new magazine) in 9mm or .357 SIG (ouch!). Be sure to buy the proper magazine for your conversion barrel. The ONLY thing I would change about this firearm would be to offer a model with OPTIONAL thumb safety. I'm just accustomed to guns with a safety. Pretty hard to beat Glock in this price range. 5 Stars! more

    My Glock Rocks
    As the above title suggests, my Glock rocks. I am a late-comer to the .40 s&w realm of pistols, having been a 9x19 guy my whole life. I decided I wanted a pistol with more "stopping power" and having always... wanted a Glock, the staff at Academy recommended the G23. I am well pleased indeed with the decision to purchase this wonderful pistol. The simplicity of the design, the reliability, and the accuracy have now made me a Glock convert. I know that when I carry my G23 that I have a tool at my side that will not let me down and I have the firepower at my disposal to deal with most situations that would necessitate drawing a pistol. I was very surprised and pleased at how well this pistol handles the recoil of the .40 cartridge. The Glock 23 was accurate right out of the box and disassembly for cleaning is easy-peasy. All this and 3 mags too? Oh and I almost forgot, the G23 carries comfortably as well. Great, great pistol. Would recommend to anyone. more

    This is the second time I've bought a Glock and sold it. It's not that it doesn't function good but incredibly over hyped. You have to have block hands for this gun to fit your hands. I don't understand why they build su...ch an uncomfortable gun. The trigger guard needs some serious under cutting my middle finger gets a blister on my knuckle every time I shot it. Plus the hump on the back of the handle needs to be shaved off even Hickok 45 said the same thing. I could never get my hand to lay flat on it know matter what back strap I used. If Glock just fixed these issues I would still have it. And it is the perfect size fighting gun. There are much better options out there one is the Steyr, this is what Glock should've been. And some other newer releases of other company's that look very promising. Sorry but I could only give it 3 stars. more

    Hi I was wondering if you send my item to my physical address or to my PO Box because I know that I stated that I do not have home delivery that's why my PO Box is also on my FFL Permit, so if you can for future referenc...e please send all orders for my business Dragon Fire Guns & Ammo to my PO Box 5079 Hagatna, Guam 96932. Also the tracking number that you gave me for my order was missing some numbers when I tried to track it, it said invalid tracking number so if you don't mind could you send me the right tracking numbers so I can see if the post office has the item before they return the item back to your company and if you have any questions on the shipping address please feel free to contact me at 671-888-0488 or 671-472-8020 thank you.

    I purchased this Glock 23 Gen 4 to be my primary EDC pistol. It's my third Glock, so that says a lot about my confidence in the brand. I received the transfer from Bud's on a Wednesday, and on Thursday I put 150 rounds o...f 180 gr. ammo through it. The pistol performed as expected, or perhaps I should say like a Glock. As with any new gun, or I should say new magazines, the magazine springs are stiff. The springs in each of the magazines that came with my G23 were very stiff. I only mention this because it's very easy to blame a FTF on the gun, when it is in fact due to stiff magazine springs. The springs will relax with use. In my opinion, if anyone is considering a .40S&W, the Glock 23 is an excellent choice for concealed carry, and a reliable pistol to shoot. I know I am very pleased with mine. I also have to add that this was my first purchase from Buds, and I'm very pleased with how they do business. I'm already planning my next purchase from them. Thanks, Team Buds!!! more

    Recently I purchased a Glock 23 Gen 4 while I was in Lexington. I currently live in Arizona and the firearm had to be shipped here to my FFL dealer. I was very impressed with the rapidity with which my firearm was shippe...d out and with how quickly I received it. Good job Bud's. I am very pleased with the quality of the Glock 23. It is everything one could want in a hand gun. As Tommy Lee Jones once said, "Get rid of that nickel-plated sissy pistol and get yourself a Glock." Nuff said. more

    I purchased a Glock 23 from Buds and couldn't be happier. The process was flawless. I used the 90day layaway plan and just after the balance was paid, I received my firearm at the dealer within a couple of days. The pist...ol was as stated in the description in new condition. I will definitely use Buds again for my firearm purchases. more

    Love the g23
    I owned the Glock 23 for 2 months and I shot about 700 rounds on the 40 cal and 1000 rounds on the 9 conversion barrel . I did get some jams on the conversion because they suggest to get some 9mm magazine and I didn'...;t because you can use the 40mm magazine with 9mm rounds but you will get one jammed for every magazine .

    The G23 is all good. I have put over 500 rds of varying quality ammo through it with zero problems. The 14 round capacity of 40 cal. for the size is excellent. I did the 25 cent trigger job, an adjustable rear sight, and... a Brass Stacker trapezoid slide lock on it. It is good right out of the box, but it is so easy to work on, its hard to resist tinkering. I have a Ruger revolver and a Colt 1911. My next purchase will be another Glock. more

    I've had this gun for a little over three months now, and it has run great. I have also purchased the components to run 9mm and .357 SIG through this G23, and it has been very reliable and accurate over about 500 rounds ...of various ammo. I only had one malfunction - stovepipe - and it was during the first mag I shot. The gun shipped on the seventh business day after placing the order; while I do think they could've got it out the door a little faster, shipping was free and the price of the firearm was the best I could find. All in all I'm very satisfied with my purchase - I'm rating the gun at the price I paid 5 stars, as I would trust my life with it. As an aside: I don't understand how so many people can review firearms on this site who HAVEN'T EVEN FIRED THEM ONE TIME! This practice completely throws off the averages. Bud's - I sincerely request site administration please delete all firearm reviews from people who give five stars but admit that they haven't fired the gun yet. These reviews are worth absolutely nothing, as one can't gauge another's experience with the functionality of a firearm based upon how it looks in the box. I believe reviewing firearms before they've even been function-tested completely devalues the averages as a whole. Again, please remove these reviews from the site as they do NOT provide any value for someone researching a purchase. more

    I recently purchased the Glock 23 Gen 4, The gun is very well made, accurate out of the box, comes with 3 mags, everything you could expect from Glock. They are very reliable firearms and in my own opinion the best of th...e best for a self defense gun. Chambered in .40 cal with a 13 + 1 round count and fairly easy to conceal. I would highly recommend this firearm to anyone that doesn't mind a little snappy recoil and expects reliability every time you pull the trigger. Now about Buds, their prices are well below any of our local gun dealers. Buying from Buds was easy and hassle free, fast shipping, I used their preferred FFL list for my area and all I had to do after that was wait for my gun to arrive. I will definitely purchase my next gun from Buds without a doubt. Thanks Buds for the best price and outstanding service. more

    First: No failures. Always goes bang. The function for the price is worth the 5 stars. Fit and finish nice, I know this gun will last. Gripes: gun is too small for my hand. I was prepared to accept this until I felt a G2...2 in my hand and it just fit perfect. I am not very accurate shooting this, my hands sweat a lot and glock triggers are terrible. But its reliable, it goes boom, it will last and its good for what its good for. I am thinking of selling it to get a G22. I like that its concealable, but I'd like more out of the box accuracy. Now, I don't mean the bullet goes anywhere accept where you point it, I only mean the ergos and sights and sight radius limit its accuracy for me and my hand. All that said, still 5 stars. more

    What more need be said it's a Glock you can't go wrong with these guns I have owned over 20 Glocks through out my life from gen 1 to gen 4 they work period. Yeah they don't look as pretty as a Sig or some 10,000 dollar 1...911 but when you need the gun it will be there for you no matter what. This is the only brand of handgun I can say I would truly trust my life with. And yes I do own just about all other major brand name handguns and models but my Glocks beat them all. If you have never owned a Glock and would like to try one get it. If you don't like it sell it they hold their value very well even for older gens. more

    Shipping was pretty fast and service was great. I really do love this Glock 23. I wasn't sure if I was going to like the beavertail backstrap or not, but I actually prefer it now. Just an FYI, Pearce makes a grip plug th...at you can use to cover the grip hole at the bottom, and still able utilize the backstraps. If there were a complaint, and it is truly only a minor complaint, I like the finish on the Gen 3 much better than the Gen 4. However the additional magazine, backstraps, and ability to change mag release trumps it. The finish is still nice, it just seems to be a magnet for fingerprints. Other than that, I've put 150 rounds through with no malfunctions, and shoots true. more

    Excellent handgun! My first purchase (and first handgun) from Buds- although I am no stranger to shotguns and to a lesser extent, rifles. Shipped and arrived without a hitch and came in factory new condition as advertise...d. I went to the range and put about 200 rounds of Winchester whitebox (I know it's not the best) and 50 of federal as well. Everything chambered, fired, and ejected perfectly... it's a glock after all. I can't speak to the accuracy of the weapon, as I am a new shooter when it comes to handguns; so accuracy is currently a work in progress... punched quite a few holes in some paper targets at 15yds though. Will definitely buy again! more

    This is my 12th firearm purchased from Buds in the past 9 months and yet again everything went very fast and smooth. I buy from firearms, ammo and accessories from many different sources both on and offline and Buds by f...ar is the fastest in the online realm. Anyway just picked it up yesterday from my FFL along with a Sig 522 and a HkMP522 for some cheap plinking fun and for trainers as I own 2 Sig 556's and a real HK MP5A5 which parts are very hard to find and very expensive so to prevent wear as well. Anyway Ive haven't shot any of em yet. This will be my 7th Glock I have every Generation thus far most are in .40, .45 and 357 only one is a 9mm. So I know Glocks pretty well and have no doubt this one will not be any different in quality and accuracy. Now time for the modding to begin. So anyway I may post an update in the future of the performance of this 23 . Ive already fired one before buying this so I have an idea of how it shoots. I try to test or try out any and all (my local club and gunshop rents or demos guns) guns that I may buy. Btw this gun came in the usual plastic glock box, 3 mags, crappy mag loader, a cleaning tool/brush, manual, test fired case, 2 backstraps and the required by law gun lock. I mainly use my Glocks for target or ccw carry. I use my Sigs and HK's for my run and gun courses or classes. Glocks are perfect for CCW as they are very light. For me anyway. Thanks again Buds! more

    Awesome pistol, but then again it is a Glock. I have carried the model 27 for a few years now and decided to see how the model 23 compared. A do like them both, however the 23 seems to shoot a little smoother. I'm sure i...t has something to do with getting your entire hand on the frame, or mabey the new springs on the 4th gens. Either case if you decide on a 27 or 23 you will be ready to rock out with your Glock out...And yes my 23 did ship with the new recoil spring, in case you were wondering. more

Next will be my 1911 I do not have a 45 yet I am saving it for the 1911. So buds I need that SA to become available again. Hint Hint!

    I got the glock quickly from Buds...first class. The gun is nice and compact.....just edges in on qualifying for CAC. I have put 300 rounds through it with no problems. Glock trigger has issues due to safety trigger...it... stinks....the ghost tactical trigger bar was a huge improvement in smoothing the trigger pull and taking up slop and improving my accuracy. I really don't like the trigger vs guns with firm triggers and safety levers...but with enough practice its good and its probably as good as any gun with a 4 inch barrel. It has lots of nice accessories like the case, 3 clips, and cleaning rod. Its nice to have around and I got it for almost $200 less than locally due to NO STATE TAXES!! Lots of nice aftermarket stuff too like extended clips I will buy any guns I need in the future from BUDSGUNS for sure...just can't beat their prices anywhere I looked. more
