    Default Feelings on the G41 Long Slide .45?

    Just stumbled on the new, narrow, long-slide Glock 41. Normally, Im not a Glock fan boy, but I just happen to think the long slide looks, I dont know, proportional? Right? Anyway, what do yall think? Im looking for an ammunition disposal device that I can keep as a house gun, and conceal carry. My main EDC carry pistols are a Beretta M92 or 5 1911, so I am familiar with carrying full size pistols.

    I like the 41 a lot.

    I had no interest in getting back into .45, but I shot my brothers 41 so well I had to get one.

    They multiply.

    I like the balance of the 41 and how it fits in the hand. I have average size man hands, so the 17/19 frames fit well, the 21 is too big. The 41 is a bit bigger grip than a 17 but it is manageable. The second 41 with a grip chop is a joy to carry and conceals well in AIWB.

    The fact that it fits all the holsters for my other glocks is also a great benefit.

    My 41s shoot very well with 200 grain ammo, and I have made good hits at every distance out to 200 yards. The longer shots aren’t as easy as with my 9 or 357sig, but it’s doable. Of course shots past 100 are really just for bragging rights but I like having the ability.

    They shoot well stock, but I have SI triggers and sights in them and the upgrades are definite enhancements.

    Many of us here carry a Glock 41 and 30S combo. Glock 41s are great duty guns also if it takes 18 rounds of .45 to feel optimized.

    I haven't shot anyone yet with the Glock 41, but when I do I'll let you know. All things being said, the Glock 41 is an extremely efficient tool - it just has no soul. Yes, my 1911 has a soul.

    With as much as I like my G30 I could very easily see the appeal of a G41...
