    Two different grip lengths for Glock 21??

    This may be a silly question, but was looking at Bud's Guns website and noticed they had G21's with both 10 and 13 rd capacity (also had different model no.'s). Couldn't tell from the pix but this mean that one has the same grip length as the 10rd Glock 30; or is the mag just shallower inside?

    Thanks ,
    Jim

    Jim,
    That's just the magazine capacity for states that restrict magazine capacity ... the grip is the same size

    You can't kill a person NEAR AS DEAD with only 10 rounds as you could if you had 13 rounds, ya know...

    Possibly for out of state sales to places that don't allow magazines that hold more than 10 rounds, but the grip should be the same, just a different magazine capacity.

    The 21 has different mags, just like the 17 has 10 rounders and 17 rounders.

    Glock has announced a new 21SF that actually does have a smaller grip than the original 21. Keep an eye out for that gun. It should attract the attention of the shooters with smaller hands, like me. I've heard you will see it in stores this spring.

    Thanks,

    Hadn't thought of the different states restrictions.
    I come here every day to learn more.
