    Particularly the Grip. The first gen has a smooth front strap, which I like better because my hands size I can get a higher grip without the finger grooves on the Gen 3. And I believe the 1st gens are also a 2 pin configuration. there also weren't bullet indicators as with the Gen 3's. I feel like I'm missing a few more...

    1st gen had no finger grooves, no light rail, and 2 pin design. and a smooth grip.

    The 2nd gen glock was basicly the same thing but with a textured grip.

    The 3rd gen glock has a light rail/accessory rail, finger grooves, textured grip, and a relieved area for the thumb. The early 3rd gen glocks were also 2 pin, but the majority of 3rd gen glocks are 3 pin. I would recommend the 3rd gen glock for the rail, and the more solid 3 pin design.

    As far as the finger grooves. If you don't like them dremel them off. You can then either do the skatboard tape grip job, a professional die cut stick on grip, rubber grip, or have the grip reduced or stippled. Lots of options.
