Checking into this thread from time to time has always made me curious. Finally shot my first Glock today. Shot a 19 and did pretty well with it for a first timer and considering I have rarely gotten out to shoot the last couple years. Grip angle didn't bother me, and the trigger felt pretty nice, as well. I actually shot it better than my 239 in .40, but not as well as my 220 carry (also first time out after sitting on it for over a little over 3 years and I loved that thing! Thanks Fredward!). I've been kicking around the idea of grabbing a 19 or 26. Thinking the 19 would be a great all around gun (HD and CC), and even better if/hopefully when I leave CA. Then I can have 15 round mags Smile. Reason I started thinking about the 26 is obviously smaller and same 10 round max in CA. Just thinking it may be too small. The 19 felt great, and am kicking myself for not renting the 26, but I can next time I suppose. They just don't have the pinky extension mags, which I would think is pretty much necessary for the 26. Seems the 19 is an extremely popular choice and I really liked it, so thinking hard about going that way and joining the "dark side." May end up dumping the 239, and grabbing the 19. Like the 239 just fine, but like the stable to be small. Have a 226, that if it weren't my first gun, I'd probably dump, too. Keep thinking compact 9mm for carry and .45 for HD. Could probably carry the 220 comfortably as well... Anywho, definitely liking Glock!

ETA: Only thing I didn't love about the 19 was the mag release, but seems there is a mag release extension that's pretty popular upgrade.

SigSauerP226 yeah the only thing I'll probably do to my newly acquired Glock 19 is installing a extended magazine release really have to change my grip to drop a magazine.

Maybe the extended slide release as well, but when the gun is broken in on the rental I originally tried was perfectly fine stock.

I always wanted a Glock 26 since I don't have a sub compact in my collection but with my small hands couldn't grip it without my fingers hanging off the grip. Concealed you can just try to live with it but I would only shoot it with the pinky extension.

But I got the model 19 first since it was such a deal and when a deal comes up again for a 26 I'll pick up one too.

Still haven’t bought, nor will, a Glock. Have tried to shoot them multiple times and just can’t do it accurately. I have transitioned from DA/SA Sigs to HK Lem, effectively, but can’t do a Glock. But I don’t feel I’m missing anything with that choice either...

I have seen the ext. slide release mentioned a lot, too. When I was at the range, I was just sling-shotting the slide. Definitely something I should look at if I rent again, honestly didn't even cross my mind. I, also, have smaller hands, and figured the 26 would still be too small. I don't care for the idea of the pinky hanging off. I guess the extension on the mag could help, but, honestly, I really liked the feel and size of the 19.

I have and carry a 26. The plus 2 from Pearce makes it comfy. Almost like a 19/23. Or a 32 which I also have, without the mag wiggle. And 12 reds doesn't hurt either.


More than a few, less than others!

Hmm I really should at least try the 26 I suppose. Shoot them back to back since the range near me has both. I am unfortunately limited to 10 rounds, but the Pearce extensions look pretty nice. I just wouldn't be able to try it before I buy it. Ah well more to contemplate and I'll go back and forth a thousand times like I do with everything I buy that is worth some coin.

I prefer the original +0 extensions over the XL.

If you do end up with a 26 and buy an extension, try to find an older magazine with only the one magazine cutout, they fight tighter and less gap between the extension and magwell than the newer magazines.

I agree with this, I just (couple of months ago now) picked up a used Gen 3 Glock 26 with a custom grip reduction and stippling job. First time that I have ever liked a 26, the hump at the rear of the grip just doesn't do it for me.

I have a couple of mags for a 26 with the single cut out, they appear "tighter" so that I don't have pinching with the extensions. I spent a couple of weeks looking for some others, a couple of the LGS that I went to thought that I was crazy, I told them... "Maybe, then again Maybe not, but I'll pick up any single cutout 26 mags that you have."

I'm good to go now, have 5. I also tried the Magpul 12 round 26 mags, they work 100% and the best part, they come with an extension and no "pinching"

Good info. on the magazines, thanks! Checked out Magpul and they have 10 round mags for the 19, but not the 26. Thought that was interesting. The latest version of Glocks "legal" in CA is Gen 3, so would those magazines already work with the Pearce ext as a tight-fitting older magazine? Technically, we can buy a Gen 4 or 5 private party from another CA resident, but people are asking for ~ $1k. The Gen 3 can be had for half of that because they are on the lame-ass roster. I guess, also, going off that info., would there be any reason to spend twice as much to get a Gen 4 or 5 over the 3?

I think Zev and Taran make awesome custom Glocks, but they are way overpriced. If you just want a new look, I can recommend Landers Weapons Systems. I absolutely love the quality of work, reasonable wait time, and fair prices he has.

I have about 4 different generation magazines and only the single cutout mags fit tight like described above.
The pearce mags fit on any of the magazines, but the ones with ambi cutouts leave a bit more gap and wiggle than the old mags.

I believe Glock changed the molds when they added ambi magazine releases, probably intentionally allowing more gap to allow more positive mag lockup.

Even Hyve suggests to not use the old single cutout mags because the tighter fit interferes with their extensions, but this is not an issue with the Pearce.

I think the movies have helped with Glock customizing, of which I am all for. It's nice to give a new perspective on a solid platform that has been ridiculed as the "block" for years. I like the looks of most of the ones I have seen. I would like to get a Grand Master by TTI but the cost,(although I understand the time/work that goes into them is not cheap) and wait times are more than I care for, mostly the wait times.

Yeah I think I always saw and appreciated the utility and reliability of Glock, but I hated the way it felt in my hand. I can practice and be efficient with the grip angle.. I’m talking about that hump on the back strap. I would have never purchased a Glock if this customization industry hadn’t come along and gotten so affordable.

Garrett Landers at Landers Weapons Systems completely reshaped the grip for me and then added stippling. Now I don’t have that hump and the angle is easier for me to get used to. Then, everything else addressed how much I hated the cosmetics. In order for me to buy a Glock I needed it to look and feel nothing like a Glock - and that’s what I’ve got now. Maybe it’s silly to some, but I love it.

Indeed you are a lucky man, sir. I'm just fortunate that my wife doesn't put me out in the literal doghouse if I bring one too many gun-related 'merchandise' items home. But her evil 'you bought what?!?' eye still burns into one's very essence and boy does it hurt like the dickens. Eek

Picked up a 19 and put the HD XR sight on it (it's my first with these sights; never heard of them until now. I've been using HD but was attracted to the thinner front post). BTW, question on this - why make the front thinner vs making the rear wider? Maybe it doesn't matter....

Anyway, it's been a loooonnng time since I've been to the range. Various things but in any case, long time. Perhaps not since late last year - I don't remember going out this year at all.

That being said, the groups are still okay. Not great but I'm keeping them w/in 2" at 12 yards. The problem is that I'm pulling left. Now, I've always pulled left (for whatever reason - pretty consistently) so all my glocks have the rear right more toward the right side of the frame.

However, I've move this sight all the way to the right (sight frame at the edge of the slide) and I'm still pulling left. Again, groups are typical of my level of competency. So, I'm not sure if it's me or the sights.

I'll try again in a week or so and bring one of my 19's that's spot on out to 25 yards (at least horizontally). Oh, I also notice that these sights on this glock likes to be dot over target. My other glocks are top of sight over target. I'd still keep things in the A zone for all glocks out to 25 yards but there is a difference in centers between this and the others.

Trigger sucks on this one. I'll change it out to a ghost connector before I got out next time. I knew before hitting the range but wanted to try out the new glock as-is first.

I got close-er onece or twice, but I still haven't bought a Glockola. I like the idea of the Glock in terms of design and materials, but I hate the grip angle. Why would Glock NOT use the 1911 grip angle that works for Everybody ? I don't understand why Glock neglects the market that likes the more traditional grip angle. Makes zero sense to me. If the Glock had a better grip angle, I would have got the big 20 for the 10mm for woods carry, scouting, hiking etc. As far as I know, the big 20 is the lightest most soft shooting high cap 10 in existance. I like that. But I can't live with the querky grip angle. I bring a glock up the same way I do all my guns, revolver or auto alike, and the damn Glock isn't pointing where I'm looking. Makes me crazy because I want one but I can't have one. What good is the mighty 20 to me if I can't point it instinctively ? Maybe I'm just too old fashioned and out of datel.
