    .40 cal (model 22) or .45 cal (model 21)? I know of course that the .45 is a bigger round, but I also know that .45's travel slower than .40's. So which has more recoil? Thanks!

    i actually don't notice a big difference, but i guess i'd say with regular ammo, .40, if you're using +P though, the .45 would have more felt recoil.

    a lot of people say the .40 has much snappier recoil... I don't know though. Never fired them myself.

    Yeah, but it's a lot faster, the impulse is over before you know it. So it about evens out with the .40 and i actually like it better for that reason, you can get back on target quicker.

    Been a couple of months since I've tested the Glock line, but I'd definitely say that the .357sig has the most recoil.

    I don't understand why people say .45's and .40's have a lot of recoil, I've never noticed it, so they must be wrong. :p


    Go down to a range and try them all out, it's the best way to find out :)

    A Glock 23, mid-size .40 S&W has the worse recoil. It has to do with the type of recoil spring system that they have in that model. Also the Glock 30 compact .45 Cal. The size of the gun makes it have an uncomfortable recoil. Even with the extension on the mag, the gun has big pushing recoil.
