I just bought a G21 Gen4, I had a Ed Brown 1911, 45 that I sold and bought the 21. Went to the range yesterday and just loved the way it shot. I thought the recoil was very soft, everyone in the family shot it with no problem with the recoil. Target accusation was fast and simple. I like the fit on the Gen4 without any added back straps. Overall I’ll get it a 10 out of 10.
