Can someone explain what SF means in Glock terminology? I can't find it on their website anywhere.

Short Frame. The good folks at Glock decreased the dimensions of the backstrap slightly making the G21SF(45ACP)an easier gun for those with average hands to shoot comfortably. I think they've done this with the G30 and G36 the other 45ACP guns in their inventory. The regular G21 was a "fat" pistol in the backstrap laterally(from web of hand to trigger finger)so this was a welcome move.

The SF (short frame) is 3MM shorter.

IT IS NOT SLIM FRAME!

SF stands for Short Frame. The trigger reach is slightly shorter.

It also stands for Still Fat, if you ask me. :smile:

Well now I'm confused. I've always heard it as slim frame, but Combat Handguns has it listed as Short Frame....Top Glock has it listed both ways...

:banghead: I guess the world will never know till Glock updates their websitre

:crazy:

Are all Glock 21's made today "SF" models? Or do they still make both, and the "SF" is something you have to look for specifically?

Well a lot of people always say it stands for slim frame but it is in fact short frame. Glock has a slim line which the only pistol in that line up, to date is the 36 ( 6 shot .45acp):wink:

Actually a lot of the controversy between "slim" and "short" comes from the original description of the G36 and the new descriptions of the G21, 20, 30, and 29 models. When the 36 was originally marketed...it was advertised as a "Slim Frame" due to its new single stack design. The newly designed "less long from backstrap to trigger" models are "Short Frames"
