There's no way elegant and Glock should ever be mentioned together.

Is there something specific about the HK you like better?

I keep jumping around between G21, M&P45 & FNP45 - maybe I should give HK a closer look.

Own one H&K USP and two USPc in 45 ACP. Another USPc in 9mm. Great pistols from the start. Never failed to fire ever.

Glock 21SF and a 50GI conversion slide. IMHO. If your going to carry a big friggin pistol, it might as well be the biggest! Why a .50? Cause they don't make a .51!

Well yes, it's on the cover of a video game! I think you'll be very hard pressed to improve on your G21, especially if you were to switch over to an HK45, which is, bigger, heavier, bulkier, holds less ammo, more complicated, crappy trigger, oversized controls, to high of a bore axis resulting in significant muzzle flip, more parts, harder to find parts for, and a longer wait for them, and last but not least, just about double the price!

You should go rent one and put five hundred rounds through it, do that, then you'll have a realistic point of reference. If you can't afford to do that, then you can't afford it, period.

From an engineering perspective, the simplicity of the design is quite elegant.

ELEGANT? Ja!

Elegant in this (Germanic) way!

I ordered numerous parts for my USPs and Mark23 (thread protectors, sights, V2 conversion kit) from hkparts.net and had no problems and fast service.

They are cool in my opinion. They shoot better than a G21 in my opinion and are far more accurate when paired against the G21 when I take them out.


More expensive or not, they both are polys. But they are in two different leagues. Both are the best in their level. I just think Hk makes a better product.

+1 i love my glock model 30. i can hit bottles at 25 yards pretty easily and get tight groups. i also want a glock 21 (the large framed .45) but i like the 30 because i can still hit stuff,carry it, and the 21 only holding 3 more rounds than the 30 is kind of dissapointing considering the size difference.

Springfield XDm .45 compact. Holds 9+1 in compact form or 13+1 with the full length mag. Accurate, reliable and just overall well built.

Hold onto your 9s and get a 45 too.
G30. G30SF. G30S
Anyone is awesome

I hate HKs oversize controls, hate the mag release location. hate the cost of parts, and hate that they are double the price of a G30.


The G30 has proved itself, its been noted that it shot 3/4" group at 25 yards. The G21 is a little over an inch group.
I don't think the HK can shoot better then that for double the price.
