Glock 21 Gen 4 Overview and Shooting Demo (HD VIDEO)

I picked up a virtually brand new Gen 4 Glock 21 a week or so ago from a guy who had purchased it hopeful that the adjustable backstraps would make it possible for him to use it, since he has fairly small hands.

Bad luck for him, good luck for me...it didn't work out for him.

So, I got this gem of a Glock in LNIB condition.

I've got an older Gen 3 Glock 21, police trade in and love it, but had to have the Gen 4.

I put it through its paces today with my son. Love the grip and have the largest backstrap on. Again, I have to say, the G21 is my favorite Glock. I find it extremely manageable, the polymer soaks up energy from the .45ACP and provides a very satisfying shooting experience.

Anyway, here's my video of our session with it. We were shooting cheapo Russian ammo, not a single hitch or glitch.

The dual captive recoil spring assembly is the most relevant change with the Gen 4s. That's a big miss for an overview, sir.

Well done managing the recoil impulse.

Thanks for the game. Holliday pop-up to Scutaro in the pouring rain. Ya gotta love baseball.
You had a great season, better than ours in 2011. See ya next year. We'll try to pay Detroit back for what they did to Oakland!

And good videos, professional quality.
