Glocksters - G21c imput

I am looking at a Glock 21 C. Its the compensated version of the model 21 .45acp. I hear and read alot about the model 21 standard but seldom about the C version. Anyone have any thoughts they would like to share on the C ?

Nothing really wrong with one but I'd take my 21SF any day.

I almost bought one not to long ago, opted for the G30 instead. I'd say go for it if you can find one. From what I have read about the 21C is that the muzzle flip is lessened and it allows for faster follow up shots. Also it won't blind you by shooting in low light.

The guy in BerdanSS's photo is probably using a hot load, but it doesn't look like the flip compensation is helping that much. My G21 shoots fine without ports, but I spose it can't hurt.

I have a G31C the only thing I notice is the lack of persevered recoil. I have to be careful shooting from retention.
My rifle and pistol are tools, I am the weapon.
