Anybody has experience with it? How blinding is it?

If you are interested in getting one with very few rounds through it, I know a guy in San Jose who has had his less than six months. And, you could always pick up one of those .50cal conversions from Guncrafter Industries....

Picking one up in less than a week. I'll try to remember to post a short range report here after I take it out.

C models are not blinding.. only p*ssies can't handle muzzle flash. its not even as bad as a 357mag revolver. but does it gets pretty dirty

They're not "blinding" at all...

I've got a Glock 22C and you really don't notice it that much.

I am looking to pick up a Glock 21C soon! My first handgun purchased was a Glock 17C at B&B in North Hollywood; still to this day it is my favorite! Just out of curiosity, what are the going prices on the 21C?

I bought mine used, so I honestly don't know...

I think it would be in the area of aobut $600 new but Buds is out and Gun Genie doesn't have a C model...

Have tried out two C models for Glocks and I don't notice any extra muzzle flash at all, actually.

Wierd, many say that flash is blinding in low light conditions

You can also get a non-C barrel for it later, if it bugs you (just don't put a C barrel in a non-C gun LOL).

Here's a vid on the minimal flames spewing out of a G19C slide:

Or so they say. I have yet to see it myself.

Shot the 21C last week. VERY manageable for a .45, I was extremely surprised. Muzzle flash was also less than I thought it would be. Have yet to fire it in low light conditions, so I couldn't really hazard as to how it affects visibility (but my guess would be it doesn't really help your eyes any).

While at Frontsight, the instructors made a big deal about muzzle flash, and how compensated pistols will "blind" the shooter in low-light situations. I shot my Glock 23C their during the night shoot, and with good HD ammo, there was almost no flash from the muzzle or ports. Certainly not enough flash to compromise my night vision.

The people around me that were shooting target ammo had HUGE flashes coming from the muzzle. There is a BIG difference between target & HD ammo.
