I would not recommend this setup (yet) for a defensive gun, as it has not run 100% like my stock Glocks have. I have only put a couple of hundred rounds of 10mm through it at this point, and I'm working on developing some of my reloads with it. The chamber on the KKM is much tighter than a stock barrel which leads to possible misfeeds, especially when it's not cleaned.

I have also read trouble people have had with the conversion barrels failing to extract. I have rarely had problems with extraction, mine has only been the rounds hanging up while feeding into the chamber. Even then, it might only be once or twice in 100 rounds, but that's still too much for a Glock!

The SHOT ShowCase

That said, the 10mm is absolutely a kickass cartridge!

That is a beautiful looking pistol you have there, I was planning on getting a 6" barrel for it, and now I'm going to have a look at the LWD slides.

For the reasons you mentioned above, I'm most certainly taking the G20 path. Like I said earlier, if I want to shoot .45, I'll grab one of my many 1911s. Thanks for posting that pic and thanks to all those who contributed here. You guys rock! Oh, and if someone can tell me when a G20sf RTF2 is due out, I'd really appreciate it. THANKS!!

And DT clearly states velocities from a G20, with no mention of barrel length, so I assume it's the stock barrel. My results have shown that you have to use the 6" (Glock brand) hunting barrel just to get DT ammo to go 100 to 200 FPS slower than they advertise. With the stock barrel, the velocities are even worse than that, so I don't think I'm tainting the results with improper barrel length.
I have done the exact same testing of DT 10mm and 45 ammo and experienced the same results as Brian Lee. With a 6" barrel I do not get the claimed velocities of the 4.6" barrel. I like the DT ammo BUT all of mine is at least 100fps under advertised velocities. I have brought this to their attention and have gotten no reply! The Reed ammo tested seems to be right on.

Good question,I bought a 21sf and then wanted more bang for the buck,bought the 20 and was very impressed and it's just so different than a 45acp round. The 10mm is to much fun(more expensive) but worth it. If i had to keep one it would be the 10mm....nasty! Love it! So much I bought a 29......even more fun in a smaller package.....it's a disease.......good luck.

The G21 and G21SF are the same caliber. .45ACP. Do you mean you bought a G20?

I own a g20

I can I ahve barrels that allow me to shoot.
10mm
40SW
357 sig
9mm

Seems like a pretty cool platform.

All I do is swap barrels, it uses the same extractor and magazines for all ammo.

I believe the frames are the same 20 vs 21. Why not buy a second slide and barrel for the other caliber?
