A variant of the Glock 21, the Glock 21SF hit the market in Spring 2007, in an effort to make the fullsize .45 Glock more appealing to shooters with smaller hands. The Glock model 21SF, stands for "Slim Frame".

The Glock 21SF was originally developed and designed to compete in the currently cancelled US Military Trials that were seeking a .45 ACP pistol to replace the current Beretta M9. The first Glock 21SF's developed and designed for the military included popular revisions such as the picatinny rail system (which replaces the common 1913 rail system on most other Glock pistols) and the ambidextrous magazine release, along with the well designed frame reduction designed to ensure that the grip is more universal. The Glock 21 grip reduction extracted material mainly from the backstrap of the grip.

Initial statements suggest that only a small number of Glock 21SF's in full military spec will infuse the public marketplace, and that Glock is going to mass produce a grip reduced model for mass distribution with the 1913 style frame rails.

Conceled weapon

What would be the best Glock to use as a conceled weapon with a shoulder holster. I am 5'8" with 43" chest. I heard there are slim type Glocks that would foot the bill.

Glock 21 SF

I've had a Glock 21 SF since Spring of 2009. I have medium sized hands and this pistol grip feels just fine for me. It is not the most ergonomic or comfortable grip, but it is a Glock and it gets the job done. I can shoot this weapon with a high degree of accuracy up to 15 yards. Beyond that, I can hit the target at 25 yards. This is a Gen 3 Glock so it has the single spring and the recoil is surprisingly soft for a polymer .45 pistol. The only modification I've made is I've added Talon Grips. I really enjoy firing this weapon. Although I have gotten into 1911s and enjoy shooting them at the range, my Glock 21 SF is definitely my choice for a .45 home defense hand gun. Great gun!
