Not looking to debate the merits of the carry method, just need a recommendation for the best ankle rig for either a G26 or G42 as a primary gun.
I'm sure the G42 is quite easy to conceal, but the G26 is simply more shootable and a lot more firepower.
What ankle options are out there and best?

Friend has one and really likes it.
I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.
I really like the AlienGear ShapeShift ankle holster. It wraps completely around the holster and ties it right to your ankle - no shifting or rotating.
It is, however, a two part holster. The first part works like an ankle bandage. It has a small slot that holds the rest UP rather than most that need something above to hold it from falling DOWN.
I checked, and that holster is available for both models you mention.

I wore a G26 in a Galco Ankle Glove daily for 8 years. Very well made and comfortable holster, and it's still in very good shape. The only reason I went away from it is that my agency bought us new backup guns, and Galco doesn't make an ankle glove for the P320 SC. I now have a Desantis ankle holster which is functional, but nowhere near as nice as my ankle glove was.
Galco ankle glove is always the answer.

Galco or Alessi, you do get what you pay for.
Tried most of them over the years, the Ankle Glove is the best of class (in my opinion).
The Alessi is very well made but didn't cinch up for me and very loose/uncomfortable.
I carry a 27 in the Galco easily when wearing jeans or cargo pants that the legs are boot cut. With dress slacks the Glock 42 or 43 is more concealable.
ETA- the Galco Ankle Lite is a good choice also, have one for my Kahr PM9.
The Alessi ankle holster is as good as it gets. I have been carrying a J frame in one since 1996 and a Glock 26 in one for the last 6 years.
I’ve had the Galco Ankle Glove and the Alessi is superior in every aspect.

When I worked plainclothes assignments as a LEO, I used the DeSantis "Apache" to carry my M27 Glock.
"I'm not fluent in the language of violence, but I know enough to get around in places where it's spoken."
This is what I've used for years. I like it because I can carry a 43, 42, RM380 etc. I had an ankle glove for a G36 years ago but the stretchy stuff tore away from the leather holster. I called Galco and I was not pleased with the service. The holster was only around a year old.

Oat_Action_Man, you ought to carry a 33 round Glock mag on the opposite ankle.
I've actually considered this.
