    Ive been shopping around for a Glock 20 :D

    Does the short frame really make a difference? Dimensions?

    Also many pictures ive seen of the Glock 20SF has a different looking Rail under the barrel than the original? Is this an option?

    I bought a 21sf after almost buying the regular 21. The sf really did feel a lot better. It might not look like much difference but you really can feel it. I think you would like the 20sf if you bought it. I did add a Pachmyar slip-on grip for it to make my 21sf perfect for me. The regular 21 grip was too thick for me to add the grip to it and still feel ok.

    The SF is the only way to go, its how the original design should have been.
    the SF splits the difference between the regular 20/21 and the 17, erring closer to the 17

    I have pretty big hands and I like the way the SF feels better than the regular models. It's not that the regular 21 is too big, it's that the SF's just fit better.

    I carry and love my 21SF...the best feeling pistol I have every held IMHO.

    My G20SF is one of my favorite guns in the safe. If I did not handload I would not own one for two reasons. Ammo is so expensive and most factory is watered down to .40 performance. The exeption being Double Tap and Buffalo Bore. I can load 180g. Montana Gold HP's with 9.5 grains of Longshot for about $.28. Keep in mind I got these componets about 2 years ago. This safely pushes the bullet to 1300fps. The gun is wonderful but I added 10/8 sights, skateboard tape, 4# Glock connector and a KKM barrel to preserve the brass. I must say this is one gun I will never sell.

    Go with the SF. The G20SF is a great choice.

    You can get the SF with the standard rail under the barrel or the new rail with an ambi mag release. I'd stay with the standard gun. The newer guns with the ambi mag release have had a few more problems. Also the ones with the ambi mag release MUST use the newest generation of magazines. The older magazines will not function with this gun. The standard SF guns will work just fine with both the new magazines as well as any older ones you may find.

    SF fits my hands much nicer than any of the previous 20/21's that I have owned.

    It's actually my best shooting Glock in the safe.

    I've shot both. I like the slim frame more. I can give up a couple rounds for more control over my gun. It is important to me but might not be to you or others.

    Huh? First, SF is for short frame, and the magazine capacity is the same in the SF as it is in the regular.
