I have two 21s, a 30, and a 41. I still like them fine
With my TT +4 mag bases, my 21 is a 17+1 45ACP!
Bought my G31 Gen3, used, from a great dealer very near where I work.
Absolutely love it, would not trade it in for the world.
P.S. When I looked at the 21 in the shop, I broke it apart and inspected the barrel. Know how Glocks develop that little "ring" around the barrel with use? This revolver had absolutely NO sign of wear, at all. I suspect the person who bought it shot maybe two magazines, did not like it or whatever, and then kept it around for a year or so and sold it ... to me.
I wanted one to carry on duty back in the mid 1990s, but our Chief wouldn’t sign off on the G21, then we switched to .40 S&W. I may buy one yet in retirement.
Can you post link for where you got those?
I carry its little brother the 30 a lot. Love me some .45acp
Though I don’t own one at present, I’ve owned 4 G21s at various times in the past. The last, a gen4 with Trijicon HDs was a great gun. I’ll buy one again someday, over a 41 -which doesn’t appeal to me.
I had one years ago, a gen. 3. I just had to have a GLOCK and it had to be in .45 acp!
I had to work at shooting it well. It took me a few months to get it right. It was my EDC for a few years but it was YUGE!
Then I held a Springfield XD in .45 acp. It was all over then.
Traded the 21 for a couple of old dirt bikes and never looked back.
If you have big hands, it's a winner but if your hands are anywhere near normal size, fugetaboudit!
When Glock came out with the Gen 5, I got rid of all of my Gen 4's, Except for . . . my Gen4 21 and 41. Love both of those pistols and will never get rid of them. Great triggers and great shooters. Just a little too large for EDC.
Nightstand gun. Also carried in a shoulder rig ala Miami Vice. Great .45.
Always a place for the G-21 in the lineup.
And different angle too. Having grown up with 1911’s , it just works better for me.
Just got a Gen 4 21. I have average sized hands, wear a size L glove. G21 fits fine. My normal EDC's have now become a G23 and a G38, but I also carry on occasion at the RSO job a G17 or G22. G21 will probably be the EDC this winter but I wouldn't have any problem using it as an EDC year round. If it can't fit both roles, I don't keep it. I wear full sized "duty size" guns as EDC all the time.
I went with the 41 when I had to choose between them. Longer barrel = more velocity, sight radius, thinner slide, slightly better trigger than default Glock. But I've never ruled out that I might still buy a 21. Generally speaking if it shoots .45acp, I like it.
Currently not into .45ACP anymore. Only reason is logistics, I do love the caliber and anything I have shot that uses .45ACP made me look like I was an expert ( I am not a great shot). When I got my first G21SF I took it to the range and was amazed at first. I could not see where I was hitting on the target. I was shooting bulls eyes and that just amazed me and also how soft shooting the .45ACP round is. I later got another G21, Gen 4 and some 1911s, ATI, Rock Island and a Ruger Sr1911. I shot great with all of them and they all were perfect. I later sold/traded them away and stick only to 9mm and .357 magnum these days. So, to me, .45 ACP is a very soft shooting and accurate round, and devastating to anything 2 legged that it hits. I hope it is around forever and I might just get some more after this China/Wuhan flu goes away.
I sort of agree - even though I have a GEN G21 and I don't have a FNX45.
I can't recall every detail - but April of 2012 - my wife needed to buy me a B-day gift and I wanted a 45 ACP - I went to a gun show and the FNX45 and GEN21 were my two top picks - the CZ97b was the gun I wanted but they were just not available -
I found both - it was a hard call - the price of the G21 was maybe $549 and the FNX45 $895 or $995 ?? I went with the Glock -
I have wondered it the FN would have been a better choice - and since I am down to only two 45 ACP firearms - I may put the FNX45 back on my short list.
Course I am not going to buy one in these crazy times -
I also have more than a dozen G21 mags - and doubt I would sell a G21 to buy a FNX45 -
I sometimes wonder - what I will pick when I get a bump in the night -
I have a GEN4 G21 with a Stream light (13 round mag) - and a GEN4 G19 with a 33 round mag hanging right next to each other -
Which one will I grab - OR BOTH - is a game time decision!
Dual wield them!
Glock 21: that's the one that I keep in the gun locker right next to my home defense shotgun. I give my Glock 20 a lot of its range time. But, I'm planning on introducing my 19 year old to the G21 and see how he adapts to it (from a GP 100).
I have both. I actually like the 21 slightly better mostly just because it is feels so much like a 20.
Still loving this one!
