My experience is that the Gen 4 21 and 30 are the same size as the Gen 3 30sf and 21sf. I did not measure them, purely a tactile evaluation.

My LGS has a Gen 4 G 21, Hmmmmmmmm

Congrats! Did you buy it online or from a local gun store?

i have actually held a gen4 21 & a gen3 21sf, when looking at my grip it looks like the 21sf is abit smaller for the fact of how close my fingers were to the palm of my hand.
it was'nt a huge diff but you could clearly tell 1 was smaller than the other.
the salesman said there were the same size so i tried them & you could clearly see the diff along with the feel, my grip prefers the gen4 pieces but everybody has a diff taste.

No. I love the 30SF. The feel while firing. The gun is accurate and has a great firing VIBE. On the Gen 4? I have a 19 and 34.

LOVE THEM I just figure the gen4 30 is a no brainer...
