    If your a Glock 21 Gen4 owner, what kind of problems have you had with your pistol?

    I am going to my local gun shop next week to make my FIRST handgun purchase. I have researched Glock for many months, my heart "was" set on Glock but after all the problems I have been reading about the new Gen4's I am very doubtful to get one. My second choice after Glock would be the Springfield Armory XDM 4.5" .45ACP... But I want a Glock:crying:

    Dont believe everything you read. The gen 4 21 is running fine. The 21 has of yet not had issues other than ammo related.

    OK, well some PEOPLE are saying that they are having problems with BTF issues. Just wanted to clarify this with a G21 owner. Thanks:wavey:

    Mine is a great pistol, running smoothly. My only issue is mine is shooting a little high. I may be changing out the rear sight for a lower one. Otherwise, i love it.

    Only issue I have with mine is how much ammo cost to shoot it. It has been great.

    Well, I guess I am one of those idiots. My Gen 4 G21 is having BTF isuues. I started a thread a couple days ago about his. There is even a video proving the G21 Gen4 suffers from BTF issues. If you are in NJ you can try mine for yourself.

    Here is one thread:

    No problems. It is my favorite Gen4, and probably my favorite of all the Glocks I own.

    You say that you have been looking at other brands, too. Well, check out their forums, too--you'll find that there are complaints about other products.

    Looks like some underpowered steel-cased stuff. Does it do this with brass? Speer Lawman, American Eagle? Just curious.

    My $300 Taurus PT145 has no problem ejecting the same ammo.
    It does it with any ammo.

    That sucks. Maybe the recoil spring is too strong for the gun? Have you tried a lighter weight recoil spring? :dunno:

    600 Rounds thru the one I have now and 1000 rounds thru the one I had previously. No problems with CCI Blazer 230g FMJ, Federal 230g FMJ or Remington Golden Saber 230 JHP. 2 or 3 failures to feed with Winchester USA45JHP 230g which is why I switched to Golden Saber for SD ammo.

    I'm planning to check one out in the near future. Want to feel it in my hands and compare the handling of it to a Gen. 3, I believe the grip is slimmer and I like the idea of the larger mag release.
