Default Best Full Size, HK45 or Glock 21?

I can't find anyone with a HK45 to shoot. I want a full size 45acp weapon. I have a gen3 21 and it is a fantastic weapon but I shot an older Mark 3 (I think that was it with the threaded barrel) USP 45 that was so accurate it was scary. My only issue is accuracy and reliability. Money is no object for this weapon. Any opinions or experiences you can share about the comparison is appreciated...

Personally I'm not a fan of either platform. I hate Glocks grip angle and the HK .45 is like holding onto a 2x4.

I also think the HK's are grossly overpriced for a poly framed gun.

IMHO 2 superior choices would be either the Sig P220 or "if high cap is a must" the XDM .45

Just my .02 cents

Tack

CZ 97B, anything but a 2x4....more like they sculpted the grip for a human hand

I own a gen 2 Glock 21 & have shot an HK .45 acp.....Glock is a better fit for me....it is a real workhorse as I haven't done a great job maintaining it & it's still fundamentally as great as the day I took it out if the box. Glock 21 is a bad a'' weapon & is definitely my shtf sidearm of choice

Default G21 gen 4 vs HK 45

I own and love my Glocks. I own a G27 gen 4 and a G21 gen 4. I just shot the HK 45. I loved it. I was very accurate with that gun. I can only imagine how I would shoot with the HK USP 45. I want that more so than Kimber 1911 Raptor II. The HK shoots better than my G21. Are there any down sides to the HK 45 or the HK USP 45?

Hmm... anyone who doesn't like HK, I'm guessing doesn't own one.

The HK, hands down is better than the glock. And I'm a glock fanboy. I compete with them( g34, g34, g17 and g20).

I'm also a huge HK fan, and they are better.

The HK feels nicer to shoot than the G21 to me. But I don't like it enough over the G21 to spend the extra on it, and extra mags for what HK wants for them.

The G21 shoots about as accurate for less money, and maintaining it costs less as well.
