View Full Version : Regular frame Glock 20 or Glock 20SF?

I recently rented the regular frame Glock 20 at my local range and shot really well with it and really enjoyed it. Thus, now I MUST have one. However, the grip did feel a bit bulky to me, especially the "hump" at the bottom, which is the reason I believe it points high for me.

Some time ago, I had a Glock 21SF, which I sold shortly after acquiring (got an offer I couldn't refuse). The thing that stands out most about that pistol is how comfortable I found the short frame grip (didn't shoot it much).

So, I am torn between the regular frame and short frame Glock 20. There are no short frame glocks available to rent locally, so I cannot do a side by side comparison. Honestly, I shot so well with the regular frame that I am hesitant to get the SF despite how comfortable I remember the grip being. From my experience, just because a gun is comfortable doesn't mean you will shoot it well and vice-versa. For example, the HK P30 is very comfortable to me, but I shoot the Beretta 92fs much better even though it is not as comfortable.

Do you think that since I shoot the regular frame well, I should just stick with that, even though I really do find the short frame much more comfortable? Is it conceivable that I might not shoot the SF as well due to the different grip? Do those of you that have shot both find that you improve with the SF or Gen 4 grips?

Thanks!

Well the 20sf is going to be identical to your old 21sf so if you liked that better I'd say go with the SF


And I totally know what you mean about comfort =\= accuracy. I too think the p30 is one of the most comfortable grips but I can't shoot that thing to save my life. I have a p64 9x18 that I hate to shoot because it hurts so much, but is a complete tack driver

Sounds like you better go with the SF.

Find a gen4 g20. You can configure it how you want.

Where can I find one? They seem to be no where to be found. Also, are the triggers the same on the Gen 4's?

They're currently blue label only but that'll change next year. The triggers are supposed to be the same with the '.' connector and the redesigned trigger housing but I actually think it's better (crisper break).

I couldn't tell much difference between the 20 and the 20SF. However, I could definitely tell a difference between the 29 and 29SF.

I have a regular 20 and a 29SF.

I have a Gen. 3 20, and a Gen. 3 21sf, and I can definitely can feel the difference. I have bear paws for hands so the 20 doesn't bother me in the least. One doesn't feel better than the other, just different.

I just got an idea--I could buy a G20SF and a used Gen 3 G21 with the regular frame.

I was planning to buy a complete Glock 21 upper anyways so that I could shoot 45 ACP. However, it seems that I could get a nice, used Gen 3 G21 for about a hundred bucks more than it what it would cost for just the slide.

Now the big question is: are G20 and G21 slides completely interchangeable with G20/21 regular and SF frames?

If so, I can experiment and keep the frame I like better and sell the other frame for $150 or so.

Yes. Completely interchangeable.
