Goodbye Glock Gen 3...sorta.
#1
Just read on GT yesterday where Glock is going to start phasing out the Gen 3.  They'll limit it to small runs for those states that only allow Gen 3's like Kalifornia and I suppose for military contracts and such.  For those Gen 3's shipped to states they will only be coming with 10-round magazines.  

I would imagine the Gen 4's will follow suit at some point?  Perhaps push most folks towards the Gen 5's I suppose.  

My buddy at work just got a used Gen 3 G19.  He was a little surprised at the news but thinks it will enhance the price.  I told him the opposite, that parts will start to be scarce and I'd take it off his hands for $50.  Thought that was a generous offer...

I hope the Gen 4s stay around for a while. Although, I should have enough spare parts to rebuild them through my lifetime and then some.

I don't see it as a major issue really.  The supply of Gen 3's on the used market will continue for quite a while (police trade-ins as well as private sales/trades.  They aren't going to stop completely as they still have special runs.  And parts are all over the place.  I would surmise that the Gen 4 will still go strong for a long time as the Gen 5 only has 3 models currently.  If the Gen 5 is going to eventually cover all possible Glock models/calibers it is going to take some time to get them out there in numbers.

Maybe 10 years from now the Gen 3 will have supply issues, but I wouldn't think for quite a while.
