Default Glock 21 SF VS HK USP 45 Frame Size

In the past I had a NON SF glock 21, it was huge. Way to big for my little hands. I recently got a HK USP 45. And I feel its a little large for me too. I have a XDM 9mm, sig p226 and they are PERFECT.

Does anyone know if the Gen 3 G21 with SF is a smaller circumfrance then the usp 45? Would It help to do the grip reduction on it? And whats the going rate for that?

The g21 is on my to-get list. That and a g30

Does anyone know how many rounds a g21 and a g21sf can hold?

The Glock 21 has about the same grip as the H&K USP-45.

Maybe try the USP 45c or HK45/HK45c with the different grip panels (SSE).

I own a HK USPf 45 and like it just fine---I regularly shoot my buddies Glock 21 in 45 and it feels a little thick in the grip, but I have large hands so no issue. I also own a HK 45C and find the grip improved---also an USPc in 45 has a smaller grip---try a few pistols on for size and make your decision---good luck!

I was looking at the G21sf as well but ended up with the M&P 45 simply due to the far more comfortable grip. It needed a trigger job for sure, but I figured that was easier than a new grip on the glock.
