GLOCK 21 SF
Old Report mixed with an updated one......
Had the opportunity to finally hit the range with my newest acquisition.
I didn't put as many rounds down range as I would have liked, but here's what I found.
This full sized frame handles the recoil wonderfully.
I was shooting Win. Ranger SXT 230 gr. JHP's and WWB 230 gr. FMJ's.
All these rounds punctured the paper targets with ease.
Big holes that I'm not used to seeing compared to the 9mm...but I got used to it in a hurry.
The accuracy of the WWB surprised me. I placed 6/7 rounds in an area the size of a "small tennis ball" at 21-23 feet.
One round got away from me, and was low. left.
The SXT's seemed to travel high and left (could have been me I suppose).
My main goal was to test the SXT ammo for reliablilty and to test the mags that came with the gun.
All functioned flawlessly.
While the G21 is a tad big for CCW, I think with the right holster, and especially in the cooler months, one could do so.
I just may.
* Edit... I decided to run some errands this a.m. wearing the G21 in a nylon Gunmate (like an Uncle Mikes) IWB holster @ the 3:00 position. Wow! I literally forgot I had it on.
So I retract the statement that it may be too big for CCW.
The picatinny rail is a different look for Glock and I'm not really sure of any advantage having it compared to the third Gen. rails.
It's highly unlikely that I'll add a Tac. Light, but it's nice to have the option.
Having limited experiences shooting .45, I cannot make too many comparisons, but I found this very easy to shoot.
Straight factory set up. no mods. done.
Shot again last night @ Pistol League and was very impressed.
Very accurate @ 25 yards.
I was shooting reloads-
4.6- 4.7 gr WIN 231
230 gr FMJ RN
Super manageable recoil, and the brass basically fell at my feet.
This gun appears to have very little selection in the way of holsters for now though.
I'm sure that'll change soon enough.
Started using a nylon slide holster, until I can find one more suitable to my liking.
Have been shooting multiple targets, one handed and prone with this gun.
Accuracy and reliability are a definite plus with the G21 SF.
It continues to impress!
