Glock 21C, I'm so tempted

One of the LGS has a Glock 21C that just seems to set. No one seems interested in it, so I may have to take the plunge and provide it a good home. It looks like new, box and all, complete with copper lube. The price isn't bad, maybe a bit high, but these folks generally price high so there's some wiggle room to negociate with. At $475 asking, I think I can take it out the door for about $435. We'll see.

I'd be very happy to take a Glock 21C home for $435 OTD.

My guess is that at $435 if you do not like it you could get most all of that back in a private sale. Maybe even a bit more.

The Glock G21 part is cool, it's the "C" part that I'd not care for. Last thing I want at 3am when shooting at a burglar is flames coming out of the top of my slide blinding me. Still, if it's something you think you could live with then I'd say jump on it for that price. Around here folks ask $500-$550 for used Glocks so $475 isn't bad at all and if you can get it for cheaper then that's just more gravy on the 'taters.

I'm not worried about night blindness, this would be my boondocks gun. My 30SF covers EDC and the nightstand. Add a heavier recoil spring and combine it with the compensated barrel, insert .45 Super, and it's hot to trot.

LOL, you read my mind. I was just going to say since you said it's not for Home Defense you could easily convert it to 45 Super and the Comp would really help tame the "beast" down a bit. Like I said, if you can get for even $475 out the door that's a good deal IMHO but less would be awesome. Looks like you've got a Christmas present to go pick up for yourself.

Like Frank61 pointed out, as a firework prop the Cs have never appealed to me functionally but I've always wanted one just to have it and a 21C would prob be my choice...especially at $435! I'd go for it, take that thing home.

I passed on a really newish 22C a couple of weeks ago..at 350.00 OTD...I could kick myself..but at that time I was saving my frog skins for a nice Gen 2 21....and I already have one Gen 2 22....
I'm trying to buckle down on gun purchases..this coming year...ouch ..I said that...

But I must say a 21C would not have been passed up...buckling up or not...I'm only human

I'd say go for it too. I've been toying around getting a 21C if I found a deal on one and maybe swapping a SF frame on it. A 21CSF.

Go for it. You could get a companion barrel without the ports should you want to shoot that way.

I have a 21, and a 22C. Love them both. Ports do a nice job on the muzzle flip. Don't hesitate, buy it!

Now that would be an interesting setup.

I just bought a G31C complete upper on Gunbroker. I'm looking forward to getting that out on the range.

In reality, they don't inhibit night vision any more than a non C model. Just as good firing from retention too.

I don't think the V-2 ports will blind you much more than the normal muzzle blast would, in the dark, but if you're concerned, you could put a regular barrel in it.

Buy it. There is no night blindness with a compensated model as others have said. I have a 21C and a 32C. The 32c was my bedside gun for a long time until it was replaced with my 41. I shot several times at night and didn't have an issue.
