    Are the glock .45ACP glocks just as durable as the 9mm glocks?

    is the 21 the full frame size?

    curious what's the barrel length?

    Around here the City cops still use the Glock 21
    but the County Sheriffs switched to Kimber 1911s 2
    years ago. The deputy I talked with said he didn't have to
    clean the Glock as much.

    Are you asking about the actual durability of the gun, or the service life?

    I'm pretty sure they use the same materials for all of their models...

    Glock history...

    I'd say yes, depite Glocks were first constructed as a 9mm.

    First the 9mm then 10mm/.40S&W, .45ACP and finally the .45GAP.

    Glocks are ugly but like 4 I have owned/own, including my G21 they work like a champ and extremely durable.

    Yes.

    I would venture at least 500% more durable than you.

    Apparently you've never seen the torture test videos performed on myself.:)
