Great Glock...my favorite of all the models is the G21 Gen4. I got the G41 in hopes that I'll be able to use it for matches this year. But, the G34 keeps on being my #1 choice.
For HD and range, you can't beat the G41. I'd recommend swapping out the stock sights with something where you can see a little more "air" in the notch. I've had good experience with the Trijicon HD sights for both match and night sight use.
About the only negative thing I can think of regarding this model is ammo, especially if you don't load your own. It was the .45ACP cartridge which prompted me to finally get my reloading setup going, and I am so happy that I did.
No. I have owned the Glock 36 for almost 13 years now. It has a 12.4 ounce slide and the main restriction I put on it is to use standard 45 ammo versus +P because it kicks harder than I like with +P in it. Furthermore the 41 has the same weight slide - 13.78 ounces according to Eric - as a Glock 22 which is one ounce more than a Glock 32/23. A 4" XD Service has a 13 ounce slide and so does my USP45c.Thank you guys for your replies. Just one question though. Do you think that the thinner slide of Glock 41 as compared to Glock 21 and other Glock models can have some durability issues of the slide of G41 ?
I don't think it does, at all. The slide is taking no more of a beating than the G21 slide does. All that is going on is inside the chamber and barrel. The places on the slide that are under some stress are plenty beefy enough to handle anything you throw at it. It's interesting you ask this 'cause it's something I never even considered when I bought mine, yet it made me take one down and look at it. I play hard with mine darn near every time I take it to the range and it barely even shows any sign of wear on the slide rails. It's one of the last things I'd be concerned with.Thank you guys for your replies. Just one question though.

The slide mass of 5" 1911s I have weighed varies from 13.4 to 13.8 ounces when the bushing is weighed with it as part of the reciprocating mass making it, the G41, effectively equal in slide mass. The G21 is 16.8 ounces which is why it is so well suited for constant +P use and 45 Super conversion.My understanding is this gun was built to be closer in size to the 1911 and be a brother to the G34/35. In keeping the traditional square slide, Glock got it right, cause the slide is slim and it'll still send a half inch wide bullet down the pipe.
