Has anyone here had the opportunity to evaluate both of these pistols side by side? I am little recoil sensitive due to arthritis. I shot my son in laws g21 and it was as mild as my RAP 9mm. Enough so it gave me the itch for a 45. but, I am on the fence, I really like my rap9 and I love my other glocks but I don't want to jump unitl someone who has experience with both casts their vote. thanks!

I would shoot it some more. Maybe rent or try a G17. I have shot a few rounds through my 21. It likes to spit the empty cases straight up into my face.

What is a RAP45, and how is it even in the same conversation as a Glock 21?
Walther, Sig, or HK comparison? Makes sense.
It's for the guy looking to save $100. That's it.
In 20 years, Ruger will probably have it discontinued and replaced with some other price-point option.
Hickock45 reviews both guns (separately) on Youtube.
Check it out.
A G21 is very mild shooting. The heavy slide, and the wide grip are the major contributors.
The heavy slide soaks up a lot of recoil
The wide grip spreads the recoil over a wider part of your hand so the felt recoil on any particular portion of you palm is smaller.
