The Gen2 G21 would it be the same frame as a Gen3 SF/Gen4 or is it like the standard G21 Gen3?

And what is it worth?

First of all, the Gen2, Gen3, Gen3SF and Gen4 are all the same width. The Gen3SF and the Gen4 are both 2mm shorter in the grip, front to back.

Nope... the Gen 2, Gen 3, Gen 3sf, and Gen 4 frames are all DIFFERENT.

Gen 2- full grip size WITHOUT finger grooves
Gen 3- full grip size WITH finger grooves
Gen 3sf- 2mm shorter grip front to rear WITH finger grooves
Gen 4- different texturing, multiple backstraps to range from the 21sf size, standard size, or 2mm bigger than the rest.

All different frames.
