Glock .45 opinions?

I recently got a head's up from a buddy about a used Glock 21 (.45 ACP, full sized). I had been looking for one ever since I heard of a conversion available to shoot the .45 Super round from it.

Turns out there are several conversion calibers that can be used w/ the Glock 21:

1. .45 ACP
2. .45 ACP +P
3. .45 Super
4. .460 Rowland
5. 10MM
6. .400 Corbon
7. .40 Super
8. .50 GI

But damn, it a Glock ugly or what? I doubt I'll ever get used to the looks of the 'Tupperguns', but there's little denying their efficiency. There are a few brands that use a stainless slide that look pretty good, though.

The image below shows the bullet expansion when shot into a pile of wet phone books at 17 feet distance. All were shot from concealable-sized guns (read short barrels). Unfortunately the .45 Super wasn't among them, but the .50 GI stands out, I'd say:
