    Sorry, I am new to Glocks and keep seeing Glock 29 and 29SF. I did see that some SFs have SF stamped on the gun but mine does not. Are all 29s SF's or is there a difference?

    Welcome to the forum!!!!
    Yes there is. The sf grip is 3 mm shorter than the 29 making the trigger reach easier for those of us with smaller hands. The ejector housing is also different than the standard and not interchangable. All else is the same.

    Thank you for the information. Doesnt sound like it is that big of a difference.

    About a tenth of an inch doesn't sound like much, but makes all the difference in the world for a guy like me with relatively short fingers.

    With a standard size 29/30 I cannot grip the pistol properly and still put sufficient trigger finger on the trigger. With the SF I can.

    All "SF" frames have "SF" stamped on the right side.

    I appreciate all the responses and information. I am reading up on these guns a lot now. Ready to go shoot it.

    I've held a standard G30 beside my G29SF and I can feel a difference. However, the difference is minimal between the 20/21 and the 20SF/21SF
