    What's the differences between G21 vs the G21SF? What was done to the frame?

    The 21SF has a much better feel, IMHO.

    the reach to the trigger is less by 3mm...in my case on a g30sf it gave me a more relaxed trigger finger with less influence on the rest of my grip when firing....

    You should go to a store and try them for yourself and see how each one feels. I have the G20 and would never trade it for a G20SF. At first I thought the G20 felt too big, but after getting used to it, now it's almost all other guns that feel too small.

    If I buy a .45 it will be the G21.

    So basically just factory back strap reduction. Does anybody have a side view camparsion of the two? Are the SFs offered without the ambi-mag releases?

    Agreed. Big dilemma for me, and I ended up with the G20. Thing is, I actually felt the SF felt a little better in the hand, but the point of aim changed between the SF and non SF. The standard 20's point of aim is identical to that of the G19, while the SF version points a hair lower. Not that I have the standard, I can tell the 20 would have been a bit less controllable had I gone with the SF.

    There is not a significant difference between the two - I have both and I have to look on the side of the slide to determine which one I have in my hand.

    Call me crazy,....but for the G21 model I perfer the SF.
    In the "sub-compact" 45 lineup I like the standard G30 grip better.

    Ok, my next question is, can the G21SF be purchased in a non ambi-mag release?

    I just made this graph to help out. Found 2 side views of a Glock 20 and 20sf and superimposed the sf over the 20, made the 20 red, left the 20sf black. The red area will obviously show the difference between the standard 20/21 and the 20/21sf. As noted by my experience, the bottom of the SF grip has more shaved off than the top of the grip, make the point of aim with the SF a hair lower. This bothered me enough to prevent me from getting the SF.
