I purchased my G21sf Gen3 several months ago, and I load it with HST 230 gr.
I agree with all the kudos that has been given for the G21. I like mine very much. In fact, I've sold, or traded, all my 1911 platform guns. Now, I own strictly Glock semis and different makes, calibers, of revolvers.
I've been able to shoot the 21 for years, starting with the Gen 3, which is what my older brother was first issued when he got onto the PD in 2006. Now I shoot his Gen 4. There is literally nothing not to love about it.
It's a good .45 pistol to be sure! We've used the G21.3 for about 15+ years as our agency duty weapon. I'd like to get one in a Gen 4 since that's the Gen for most of my other Glocks. May be the next one on the list.
Now you need a G41 to go with it!!
*There are people here who are pleased with their G41's , G30's , G30s's - but people here LOVE their G21's ...There has to be something above and beyond special for the G21 to make people so passionate about this Glock model !
21.4 here. I guess it’s how soft a shooter it is. You can put many 45 slugs on target rather quick and smooth.
Like a Cadillac suspension system for the 45. The 45s recoil is a smooth push anyway, and the 21’s dynamics makes it even sweeter.
*Expand on why you ditched all your 1911's for the G21 ?
In my experience, 1911s throw brass every way that it can be thrown. That's been diagnosed as "clocking". Adjusting the extractor is a shot in the dark. New extractors never fixed the problem. New oversized Firing Pin Stops? I have NOT owned every 1911 that is currently produced. I have had several RIAs, two Rugers, two Metro Arms, one Spingfield and two Colts. And one Browning Black Label, in .380. The Colt Commander was the last to go. If I didn't reload, I wouldn't worry about finding my brass.
1911s are a money pit. A Glock 21 is several thousand dollars cheaper that "top of line" 1911s. You can change sights, grips and recoil springs ad nauseam. And, it's still limited to 8 rounds, with modern magazines. 9mm 1911s are capable of another round or two, but then they are not 45s.
The Glock 21.4 has fewer parts than the 1911. It weighs less than steel 1911s. Holds more rounds that any 1911. The Glock is easier for the average Joe to maintain.
I am not critical of anyone owning and shooting 1911s. But for me, it was better to move on to the Glock 21.
I went looking long and hard for a 21 Gen 41 a couple of years ago, but wasn't able to locate one. I did find a lightly used G41, though, and haven't looked back ;-)
I converted my G21 Gen 3 to .50 cal via the GI conversion kit. It's more accurate and packs more punch than a stock G21. Pricey for sure but, I can say that mine's bigger than yours.
Love my G21 but 1911s rock too. No reason both can’t coexist in the same safe together.
Agreed. I don’t understand the great debate wars that are faught between the 1911 and the Glock.
I think both rock, and have both.
