    I was wondering if there are any issues with the Glock 21 gen 4's? I just bought a Glock 21 gen 4 on the advice of a Glock armor and then I started hearing more about the gen 4 problems in the G19 and others.

    I would like to get a Glock 17 also, mainly so I can shoot cheaper with the G17 and then transition pretty easy to the G21. I think I might buy the G17 gen 3 just to be safe.

    I still have the H&K USP 45 but I want to go with a weapon that doesn't have a thumb safety and one with cheaper magazines.

    Any help/advice would be appreciated.

    I think the Gen 4 problems are mainly 9mm.

    I haven't heard of issues with the GEN4 G21. Good luck with it and welcome to GT.

    Hello guns85, welcome to Glock Talk.

    I don't think you have anything to be concerned about with the Gen4 Glock 21 45ACP. The Gen4 G21 has been selling in the U.S. since May 25, 2011. All the reviews I've read at Glock Talk and elsewhere have been overwhelmingly positive (bordering on adoring).

    I've fired several hundred rounds from each of the Gen3 G21SF and the Gen4 G21. The Gen4 G21 is the finest 45ACP pistol that Glock has ever made IMHO (at least until the Gen4 G30 is released :)).

    Enjoy shooting your Gen4 G21!

    I have a Gen 4 G21 and it shoots like a dream. I've never had an issue with mine and have never heard of anybody else having an issue with a Gen 4 G21. The Gen 4 (and late Gen3) problems have been in the 9mm's for the most part and from what I understand they have been worked out.

    The only problem with my GEN 4 G21, is that it absolutely smokes every other Glock I have ever shot. The grip is amazing, it shoots like a dream, it has the absolute best Glock trigger I have ever felt, and I have 1500 problem free rounds through it.

    Thanks for all the input everyone gave me and for welcoming me on Glock Talk. I am glad to be back with Glock, I had a G22 years ago and I didn't use it much, it always worked great.

    Do you think I ought to go with the gen 3 for the G17?

    Congrats! You're gonna like it. I finally got to the range this morning with my new Gen 4 Glock 21 that I bought last week. All the reviews on this forum are all TRUE! I was very impressed with the soft recoil of this gun. So much softer than my Springfield 1911 that I currently carry for duty. I am a fan of the 1911, but after shooting the Gen 4 Glock 21 I will be switching duty guns.

    I love my G21 Gen 4. Bought it NIB from a friend who wanted a Gen 4 Glock in .357 Sig. Easily one of my best purchases. 300+ rounds down range without a hitch.
