SPINCO recoil reduction system. Look into it. I have one in my 1911 makes felt recoil even less.

I bad a G21 and the G22 has alot less recoil the the 45. The 45 isn't bad though. I thought it would have been alot worse. And river 9mm I shot had alot more recoil then then the. 45

I have both 1911 and g30sf. 45 acp is not a heavy recoil round in any normal sized gun. I do notice that there is a difference in the recoil feel. The 1911 tends to roll up and back while the glock is more of a push with little muzzle rise. The glock recoil is lighter than the 1911 and on par with my G19 in 9mm. If you have adapted to any of the major caliber rounds the 45 acp will pose no recoil challenges

I have a G30sf and it has very little recoil, very soft shooting.

According to my measurements, the center line of the bore to the web grip ogive center, is higher on the 1911, than the G21, inducing more muzzle flip.

Actually, the higher your grip the less flip and the faster response for a second shot. That is the reason the 1911is the primary handgun for Bullseye matches (25 yards), which include rapid fire.

As far as 45 ACP recoil, I would describe it as more of a push and is certainly not a problem in any of the Glocks or 1911 style handguns. I personally find the 40 much more uncomfortable to shoot because of it's sharp (biting) recoil.

Yes.....that was my point, the G21 has a higher grip than the 1911.....

Although there is just a small difference between the two.....the grip shape/size, as well as shooter technique can easily mask the effect. Although the grip is higher on the 1911, for most trained shooters, the 1911 is easier to make more effective double taps, even though the theory is the 1911 would have more muzzle flip. Too many other differences between the two designs for the grip height to be definitive in my judgement.

Nonetheless, if a shooter has issues with the recoil difference between the 1911 and Glock 21, or 9mm, 40 and 45 comparison, between similar size frame guns.....the shooters has other issues rather than just weight of the handgun and recoil.
