Does anyone have any experience with the perceived recoil of a S&W 44mag and the Glock 10c? I shot a 44mag several years ago- don't recall the ammo, and it was "Enough gun" and then some. It had a 7.5" barrel and original grips. Shooting the same load in each, how would they compare. I haven't been able to shoot a Glock 10mm and have been thinking of buying one.
Thanks for any and all help.

The 10 should be noticeable less than the 44. I havent shot the Glock but I have shot a Kimber in 10 & it was nowhere close to the 44 in recoil.

The unported 20 is not bad at all so the 20C should be a pussycat. I wouldn't get the C except for a competition gun. Ported guns make a poor choice for personal/home defense.

+1, you don't want that muzzle flash comming your way. Bad enough with a standard barrel. If you get some hot ammo, yike!!

I think you'll find that even hot loads in the 10mm are nothing in comparison to .44 Mag. The recoil is even a bit more pronounced in 1911s due to the thinner profile, and is nothing to write home about.

I have used the S&W 29 for years, it is a 6".
There is very little muzzle flip, it comes straight back into your hand.
It is a very easy gun to shoot.
You do not need the full under lug or porting.

I agree, the muzzle energy of a 10mm Auto round doesn't even come close to that of a 44Rem Mag. In practice, the 10mm rounds feels like a hot 45ACP round.

Factory grips on a Model 29 is about the worse set-up you can shoot with, IMO. As usual, you can always shoot .44spl if you like. Some wood fingergroove grips makes the 29 a pussycat, IMO.

I remember putting some hot loads downrange with a square butt 6 inch model 29. I was maybe 14 and weighed around 120 pounds.

I regretted that.

Thanks for all the input- esp regarding the porting. I think I have one lined up to shoot up in Huntsville. Will keep U posted.
