    Anyone have experience with the G21 Gen4? I have a 17, 19, and 23 Gen4, and I'd really like to add some .45ACP to the collection. I personally really like the Gen4s, but I know the 21 frame size is much larger in the Gen3, and I wondered if that carried over to the next Gen? Are the ergonomics of the 21 as good as the others?

    I think there is a big difference between the Gen 3 & 4 Glock 21's.

    Same story as with the G17 I own.....3rd gen feels blocky, 4th gen feels great.

    Oh, and FWIW, I've heard the Gen 4 21 has the same grip size as the Gen 3 21SF.

    The Gen 4 21 is my favorite handgun to shoot right now.

    The bigger mag release is a big help on the fatter gun, the grip is reduced to the size of the Gen 3 SF models, but the grip texture on the 21 feels much better.

    Supposedly that is true. However, the Gen4 21 grip feels better, and slightly smaller, in my hand than the 21SF. Pretty similar though, and definitely smaller than the full size 3rd gen 21 grip

    Ditto on the grip texture. The Gen 4 is much better IMO.
