The new G40 is absolutely great. I have a few boxes thru mine and it is a blast to shoot. Not sure if I prefer the red dot site over the original sight but it has a very cool mounting system should one desire the red dot. The additional length eats up some of the recoil which feel a little better than the G20. I am looking forward to whitetail season! Chad, i look forward to your follow up post once you get your pair out to the range.
