    Stay with what you are comfortable with and if you decide to change to 9m/m,you already own the best and greatest.

    The best and the greatest came out in 1982.

    The Glock Model 45 is the KING of Glock.

    The Glock 45 is a juvenile 17. It'll grow up one day.

    Did you mean 1935? Or do you just mean greatest Glock, not the best 9mm?

    I love my G45 MOS. Probably the softest shooting platform Glock makes. Only changes to mine are Trijicon standard night sights and a Shield RMS mini red dot.

    EDC in a T.Rex sidecar w/19 round spare. Minus connector. Stippled. Undercut. Milled. RM06. Ameriglo irons. APLc until Surefire figures out the XR1 :(. Sent 11k of various range ammo downrange in the last year. My favorite Glock model, hands down.

    How could this be softer shooting than a 17 or 34 tho...? Sure, less slide mass, but also less mass to eat up recoil...

    I think it probably has to do with the balance and perceived recoil. What I can tell you is that I am more accurate and have faster follow up shots with my 45 than I do with either my 17 or 19 and I experience less muzzle rise and less felt recoil.

    I’m with Jarrod on this.

    Before switching over to the 19X (and then G45) last fall, I’d been shooting a G17 in IPSC/USPSA/3gun since 1994.

    The recoil impulse is noticeably different between the G17 and G45.

    And my splits and transitions are consistently faster (although slightly) on the timer with the G45.

    Sold my last G17 and just added Sevigny sights to my backup competition G45.

    When I read about it, I thought it was a rather stupid idea. When I shot one, I understood how wrong I was. Now I own two Glocks, both are 45’s. One MOS, one with iron sights.

    I owned a Glock 17 and it always pointed high for me. The G45 comes up on target as fast and as accurately as I can get it there.

    It’s good to be wrong at times.

    I do have one actually lol. I just don’t have enough experience with the G17 or G34 to know if the G45 shoots softer and I can’t wrap my head around why it would be... Hoping someone can shed some light. TIA!

    I own a 45 and two 17's. There's no significant difference.

    How is the POA/POI with those sights on the G45?
