"Gen 2 added finger grooves on the grip, Gen 3 added a Rail under the muzzle, and gen 4 has ambi mag release, and a different texture grip. also extra back straps to adjust grip"

That is an early second generation based on the grip and number of pins in the frame in my understanding.

I thought there were some later second gens that had finger grooves. Not sure, but I thought I read that somewhere.

I believe the 30 was one of those "exceptions"... some people call them gen 2.5

No generation is really worth more then another. The fourth gen guns when they first came out had some reliability issues, a first for Glock so they kind of have a tarnished reputation.

Third gens are probably the most popular but a lot of people like the lack of finger grooves on the first and second gens. Heck, first gen G Seventeens -my number keys stopped working today- are, dare I say, getting collectible.

An interesting thing about Glocks, Back in the mid eighties when they first came out they retailed for around five hundred dollars which is the same as today.
