If you're shooting full power 10mm (you should be) thenI say the 20. Especially if its a Gen 2 or 3 since it has a stronger recoil-assembly ring on the slide. The G29 recoil assembly ring is very thin and doesnt look very strong. That' s my opinion.
Actually, the G29 was designed to handle full power loads, they just put a lower powerNo I shoot and reload only the minimum to mid range levels. I dont shoots "hot" loads at all. In my opinion there is no sense in that because it damages your guns over time.
If I could carry a G20 instead of a G29 I would, as the G20 (certainly) hasI've owned a G20 and a G29SF...still have the G20, the G29 is long gone.
For 10mm the G20 is great, nice feel, good at handling recoil and an all around good pistol for it's caliber. I did not care for the G29...horribly top heavy even for a Glock and just not a pleasant pistol to shoot. Oh sure if you use wimpy loads it's not bad recoil wise but as mentioned above...why get a 10mm of you're gonna use wimpy loads???
I'm sure the G29 is just great for some people but not me...it was by far my least favorite Glock and one of the pistols I have never regretted getting rid of.
I've looked at A LOT of reviews and videos of the "RIP" ammo,
