Glock 21SF

I really like my Glock 21SF. However I am a fairly new owner. Can some of you comment on the pros and cons of the pistol after long term use?

You will develop Glockitis and sell your other 45's.
My rifle and pistol are tools, I am the weapon.

G21SF I have one, like it! Problem was it didn't take long for me to see the need to get it a little brother so I now have a G30SF to keep the 21 company

I have several Glocks. It seems like it is one gun you don't get upset about when it gets a ding.

I am not nearly as concerned about nicks and dings with those guns as I am about some others.

They shoot good and they are reliable.

You have two of the best with the G21 and G30.

My G21 SF was ejecting straight back into my face. I sent it back to the factory and after a few days they shipped me a whole new gun. The new gun ejects right past my right ear but it's okay. A fine pistol otherwise with lots of firepower.

I really like mine. It's never given me any reason to gripe.
I would suggest an extended slide release and 3.5 lb trigger disconnector. Very inexpensive upgrades that really enhance the gun. A Wolff trigger spring is nice too.

Careful with those lighter disconnectors. They're super easy to install but I got a lot of unintended double taps even with the factory 4.5#.

The grip angle messed me up and I had to sell mine. Wasn't impressed with the mushy trigger pull either, partly caused by frame flex next to the trigger bar. You can visibly see the frame bow out every time it's pulled.

double tap

Thousands of rounds an many different Glocks never had a double-tap with a 3.5 connector
