I'm looking at Glock G22.4-G22.3 LE trade ins. But, I need to know something about the grips on the Gen 3 VS Gen 4. From what I have read, the Gen 4 comes factory with no palm swell. Is the Gen 3 grip the same width as the stock/factory Gen 4 (finger grooves to the rear,heel)? Or, is it thicker, vise versa?

The Gen 4 is the same width as the Gen 3's as far as I can tell. However with the back straps on the Gen 4, if you use no strap (which is what they call small) you will have a smaller grip than a Gen 3. But that is front to back smaller.

I have shot and carried Glocks a lot, and of the 4 I have been through my current Gen 4 is my favorite. I don't see much point between Gen 4 and Gen 5 unless you hate the finger grooves, but at this point I would pay a little extra for a 4 over a 3.
