The new Glock 41 Gen4 pistol extracts everything and then some from the.45 ACP cartridge, For years, nearly since the launch of the G35, Glock aficionados have been yearning for a.45 ACP version of the “Practical/Tactical” series. The launch of the Glock 41 Gen4 pistol by Glock delivers one of the greatest weapons available for tactical teams, speciality units, or cops used to carry full-sized pistols. As a long-time Glock 20 user, I consider the G20 to be my favorite Glock. My huge hands, dubbed “bear paws,” make firing many medium-sized firearms difficult.
While the size of the G20 and G21 was an issue for some, they were ideal for me. Both variants were soft shooters in contrast, albeit a little too big for concealed carry. Because most cops carry one gun for both job and off-duty use, its appeal was limited. Using the G41 Gen4 gives a new alternative for dealing with the majority of those concerns.
The G41 Gen4 has the same proven grip frame, replaceable backstraps, and reversible magazine catch as the G21 Gen4. However, the similarities with the G21 end there, as the G41 Gen4 has a completely new slide and barrel. Except for the top cut, the slide proportions are very comparable to those of the G34 and G35 handguns.
The rifle was also lightened, and a new dual recoil spring assembly was added. The G41 Gen4 has a 5.31-inch barrel and a magazine capacity of 13 rounds. This design is easier to shift to than the G21 Gen4, as it delivers milder recoil with no reduction in capacity and no change in overall weight.
The G41 Gen4 really provides all the advantages of the G34 and G35 pistols with the ballistics of the .45 ACP. The G41 is actually 0.17 ounces lighter than the G35, while its capacity in .45 ACP is only two fewer rounds, at 13.
The most popular round behind the 9mm Luger is the .45 ACP for both law enforcement officers (F.B.I., Sheriff Deputy, State Police, etc…) and civilians alike.
Most of all Americans prefer the 9mm Luger at the moment, but I believe that gun choice is cyclical. Millions of Americans carry .45 ACP because of its versatility in the sizes of pistols available.
The evolution of the 1911 (M1911 pistol) years has led us past the world-famous M1911, to guns like the Glock 21, Glock 41, or the Springfield Loaded. All three guns are incredible, but not all 3 guns are equal to each other.
