But when I showed up to the Gunstore I realized there where alot of options. An OD Gen 3 G21 made it's way into my hand and I fell in love but did not buy just yet. Though my first pistol (by simply first Signature of the three, the other two being a G17 and G22 gen 3) this older non-sf gen3 made it's way home in black. Dry firing quickly confirmed the Tungsten guide rod brought it to my preference and at the time Sig just wasn't offering enough or cheap enough. 2.5k rds later it remains my favorite pistol, probably my favorite firearm. For me it is the simple get it done, designed right not upscale or other models down scaled from has always been why I chose and continue to prefer Glock. Tungsten rod balences out lighter magazine loads and makes my drills consistent.
