Glock 21 vs. 1911: Which .45 Will Win?

The Glock 21 is pitted against the 1911 in this range trial to find out what .45 is superior.

Range Time TS takes out two famous handguns and the Glock 21 is pitted against the 1911 in this struggle for supremacy.

.Glock owners and 1911 fans love to debate the merits of each gun, so why not have a look at this comparison on the range?

A pretty good comparison and trial of both .45s, however I think the debate will continue. I am a diehard 1911 fan but have also shot numerous Glocks and have to say they are an awesome pistol. I can see why Glocks are so popular as they are super easy to operate, strip and assemble quickly and the immediate action drills are dead-simple.

A quality 1911 (there are some bad ones out there) is super accurate with a great feel and superior recoil management. 1911s are also a great piece of American history that every gun owner should consider getting.

Whatever camp you fall into it seems they are both great guns and perhaps one is perfect for the range and one is great as a carry gun. I think they both have their merits and I am sure I am not alone.
