    Glock 21 SF (Too Big for Me?) *Updated*


    The Glock 21 SF is the same handle size as the smallest size a Gen4 can go. While the regular Glock 21 felt like I was holding a coke can, The SF model felt like it was molded just for my tiny hands. I feel I could easily manage shooting it single handed. Thanks for easing all my worries everyone.

    If you have small hands like mine are in the pictures, A glock 21 SF will fit yours perfectly!

    Note: The gun in this picture is unloaded. No Mag and confirmed empty chamber.

    I voted yes but you need to hold one to determine if you are comfortable and confident with one.

    I abstain from voting. No one can really answer if it will fit you. Besides, it might "fit" but you still might not be able to grip it well enough or shoot it well enough to hit anything.

    I too have small hands and the SF models are fine for me. The Gen4 G21 is even better. GLOCK literature will tell you the SF is pretty much the same as the Gen4 with no backstrap installed. I believe them but it DOES feel different. Legacy agreed when he tried mine.

    Now, shooting is one thing but carrying is another. I have only carried the G21 a few times when I wasn't concerned at all with printing. It can be done but not done easily by a small guy.

    The photo is not useful.

    Grip the gun normally. Place the center of your index finger's end pad on the center of the trigger.

    Does any portion of your trigger finger from the knuckle forward touch the frame? Your finger should not touch the frame.

    You should be able to pull the trigger straight back as if it were following the firing pin.

    Does your thumb wrap around the opposite side and are you able to lay your thumb on the frame pointing forward? If you cannot, then the grip is likely a bit large.

    Does it feel like you have a good grip on the gun with one hand?

    If you cannot get a good grip on the 21SF, you should look at the Glock 21 Gen4. It has a shorter length of pull and feels like a slightly wider Glock 17.

    Does anyone actually believe that the Founders were sitting around in John Adams' tavern UNARMED because they believed a bar should be a gun free zone?

    Good luck in your search. Only you can be the judge on whether a particular model fits your hand. I don't have really large hands and don't seem to have any trouble with my G21. Not trying to be cute but the 21 is a handful. Again, good luck and welcome to the forum.

    I to refrain from voting. As everyone else says only you can make that call. I don't have large hands, but find the full size 21 very comfortable. 230therapy's advise it sound.

    As a reminder to everyone, the OP stated he did not have access to the GLOCK. None of his local Gun Stores has one he can get his hands on which was why he was asking for our opinion.

    I agree with most everyone stating that he needs to try and find a way to get his hands on one, either from a local friend, a range that rents etc..

    Welcome to the Glock.pro forum...

    Hard for any of us to tell if a Glock 21 sf will fit your hand from a picture...

    Where do you plan on buying one? Where do you live? Your best bet might be to spend some more time looking for one to try out...
