Default Opinions on a Glock 26

I have a Glock 19 I bought a few years ago so I am used to shooting a Glock and love it. But I am picking up a Glock 26 Gen 4 Thursday and I dont know too much about the more compact models. Can any/all give me some opinions on the Gen 4 26 if you have any experience with them. Thanks for the help. Ed

dont have a Gen4 26, have 27, but they are a great little compact weapon, should be fine have not heard to many issues with the G4 G26... just enjoy it and get use to the small grip...

I own a G26 gen 3 and have shot the Gen 4.....very little difference....at all. SLIGHT difference in the grip shape and stippling. Just a newer model thats all.

I absolutely love my Glock 26 and having shot a G19 many many times before making my purchase.....I find that I am just as accurate and the felt recoil isnt noticeably different with the G26. You are gonan love it. A tiny package that shoots accurate as hell and with the +2 mag base plate extension you can go to 12+1 rounds.

I do not own a Glock 26 or any for that matter but I am a big fan of Glock and any Glock product is a good product.

I have an older Gen 3 that I bought used, its a great pistol for primary cary or back up. I prefer my G19 for EDC, but have no problem carrying the 26 when absolute concealabilty is an issue. I had looked at them several times but had not bought one because it just didn't feel as good as the G19, but walked in to my LGS one day and found a supper deal on this used one and have never regretted it. "Its a good thing". Go for it and enjoy.

I bought a G17 Gen4 and liked it so well I went and bought the G26 Gen4. I bought some Glock 12 round magazines for my fingers to rest and added a 3.5# connector and 6# spring. The G26 is accurate, reliable and now my EDC.

My Gen 4 G26 is my all time favorite ccw gun in the 17+ years I have lugged a pistol along. Rides just right in a UBG Canute IWB, or a Kramer Belt Scabbard OWB.

Default Not much difference in size

If you use the mag pinkie extensions on the G-26 you will find the size and weight difference between the G-19 and G-26 almost negligible. Therefore if you are going to use it for the range, and also IWB carry, you might as well just stick with the G-19. In my mind both of these pistols are top shelf, but for my needs, too big for easy comfortable carry. The G-26 is not a pocket pistol. I prefer something a little thinner and a little lighter such as the M&P Shield.
