Here is my thought about the new model Glocks what ever the number. The reason the slide on Glock/SIG/HK/S&W/Taurus/whoever is thicker than a 1911, CZ 75, Browning P-35 is entirely to do with how the pistol locks.

The new system effectively tamed the snappiness of the .40 S&W.  It isn’t necessarily less recoil; it just feels different.  Instead of the snap up you’re used to, the recoil feels much more like it’s directed straight back with far, far less muzzle rise.  This was not as pronounced in the long-slide G35’s, but was very evident in the Glock 22 Gen 4 I tried.  I was able to make easy “triple taps” with the Gen 4 G22, whereas this was far from easy to do accurately in my old issue Gen 3.
