Those that have one how are they? Have a line on one for about $350.

Been wanting a .45 to run suppressed and just because all my other Glocks are 9mm.

I have a factory TB G21.

it works fine suppressed.

I don't have much else to say about it. It's a Glock and shoots like one.

My beside gun.

Thanks fellas, about what I expected…most glocks feel the same.

Gonna go grab it in the morning.

I've got the 21C, I like it, a little bulky for my hands, but it's smooth shooting.

Gen3 g21 was my first Glock. Bought it from someone here on the ee probably 20 years ago or close to it.
Mine is extremely accurate. I have heard others claim the same. It's a bit bulky in the grip. Definitely for big hands. In the 20/21 I prefer the lone wolf frame.

I've had one for over 20 years, all stock except I swapped the stock barrel out for a KKM barrel so I can shoot lead reloads.   Great pistol.  I have small hands and I have no trouble what so ever with the grip size, if anything the bulk makes it more manageable.

I had a Gen 4 21 and it was very smooth. It had a big grip but was still thinner than the gen 3.
Would buy again.

I like my G21...but no one else I've allowed to shoot it has liked it.  Most people think the grip is too big.  

I have pretty large hands though, so it fits nicely.  

I don't have any reason to sell it.  I also use it as a bedside gun.

My first 21 and many since. My personalized tag is Glock21…. So get one

Is it an SF (short frame)? The G21SF feels to me about the same size, grip-wise, as a Beretta 92. The regular G21 feels a tad too big for me, and I have pretty good sized mitts. I had a G21SF for a long time and I have to say, it was a shooter. I shot it well, and probably never should have sold it. But it was a pretty big gun to have riding on my hip all day.

I have had several G21's over the years, a couple Gen2's, Gen 3 SF, Gen 4 and my current Gen 5 MOS. They are one of my favorite Glock models.

Bought a used G21 gen 3 several years ago that was almost new.  Got a Lone Wolf barrel and never looked back.  It's clunky but I'm amazed at how well I can shoot it.  It's my night stand pistol.

I just shot mine this morning. It’s all Glock components on a polymer 80 frame. It ran like a Glock.

Carried one on duty for over 20 years. Soft shooting but officers of smaller stature had issues with the grip. I always liked shooting it, had a few issues but it was because my agency didn’t believe in replacing parts until it failed or broke.

350 bucks is a great price compared to how those sell locally. Usually 450-500 here and mostly Gen 4's for some reason.

G21 Gen 3 ...

Some Run. Some Don't.  I watched one shear the rear frame rails, and know they can be limp-wrist *woke*  sensitive.  Can we still say limp-wrist?

Our local PD issued these for several years.  A lot of complaints on the range.  I've owned a few, but will never buy another.  For me Glock shines in 9mm and 10mm.  The G23 is a passable 40SW but Glocks in anything 45 (and especially GAP) are no goes.  HK owns the 45 market.

Probably because Gen4 is GLock's worst offering.

I've owned / carried Glocks since 1994. These have included Gen 2, Gen 2.5, Gen 3, Gen 4 and Gen 5.  

Gen 5 is by far the best for me personally.  The early "frying pan" Gen 3 is second place (hit or miss if you're going to get a Brass-To-Face feature model).  The gray scratchy slide Gen 4 would be my last choice. In fact, I would just buy a Canik.
