Between the two choices...

If its primary use for duty use or range/target shooting or home defense, then Glock 21SF.

If its primary use is for conceal carry, then Glock 30SF.

I have both of these and a lot more.

The G21 platform (SF or not) is the most versatile you'll ever come by in my opinion.

Want a long slide? Lone Wolf makes them for 45 and 10mm.

Want to shoot 10mm? Buy a G20 complete upper off eBay

Want to shoot 40SW? Get a conversion barrel for the G20 upper.

You can't do the above with a G30 and a G29.

Can it be said for the Glock 20? Can you buy a G21 slide and do the same as the above?

I can't remember exact reason atm, but getting G20 platform and adding G21 slide is the way to go, not the other way around.

10mm Glock 20, 40, or 29.

If you were a true connoisseur of the 45ACP, you would never allow that cartridge to touch anything other than a 1911. Since you are looking at the G21 and G30, you are not a true connoisseur. That means you should look at the 10mm Glocks. You can get a 357 SIG or 9x25 Dillon barrel for the G20. You can also get a 40S&W barrel for the G20 to shoot the only ammo that will be on the shelf during the next ammo shortage.



If you are set on a 45 caliber, look for a 45 GAP Upper for your G19.

Yes, but...

You'll need to replace the ejector in the frame for the 45ACP. It will work, but it can be finicky.

Please provide the reason why. As an owner of nearly every Glock ever made, I'd love to read about it.

My bedside gun is a G21SF. My G30SF just sits in the safe nowadays because I prefer the G36 for ccw.

My EDC is a Glock 21 with a red dot (appendix).

Only problem with Glock 21 is finding accessories. It's a bit fatter than the 9mm, so won't fit those holsters.

I am not a connoisseur of the 45ACP cartridge. I have only one 1911 and 2 Glock 21 pistols. I have also sold all but 3 of my 45ACP guns, and prefer the 40S&W over the 45ACP.

P.S. The G20 10mm can hold 15 rounds, or 17 with a Pearce mag extension. That is 2x of an old 1911 with 7 round mag.

Dont know the other persons reason, but a Glock 21 slide and barrel are easier to find than a Glock 20 barrel and slide.

I vote Glock 21, and if you are able, get the Glock 21 Gen 4. I own multiple Glocks, and it's my favorite.

I have large-ish hands and only have 1 Glock...the G17. When I held all the 9mms the G17 felt most natural to me.

So I'd go with the 21sf - The 30sf looks too much like G26 to me and I didn't like that one in my hands at all. Didn't get to shoot it though

edit: I change my mind. The 30sf is bigger than G26. And since I have the G17 I don't need a virtually identical G21sf in 45. I'd go 30 to get alittle variety. Seems a next mix between the G19 and the G26.

Have you considered looking outside of Glock?

I love my 17 & 19, but I’d rather have a CZ 97, Sig P220 or 1911 for a 45 acp pistol.
