Glock g26 or g27?

I did own both of these, and liked both. But now I wish I never sold them. I want to buy either a 26 or 27. What is your choice and why?

Thanks.

G26. The recoil is easier to manage and you get one extra round.

G27. The recoil is very easy to manage and you won't need the extra round to get the job done.

This ☝☝☝ and you can change barrels and shoot 3 different calibers out of the same Glock.

What is involved with changing barrels? Are there any other parts needed?

I went with the 27 because I know I'll get used to how it shoots, I want the extra stopping power, and I like the convertibility option of it, should I ever want to do it. Maximum bang for the buck, literally, and "bang" is why I have a handgun in the first place (this will be a CC gun). Good luck -- let us know what you do!

^^^ This. Other than above, really it's pretty much the same gun... just more of a question on preferable caliber. Either one is more than adequate. I prefer the G26 for 9mm myself. I think .40 is just too snappy of a round for a sub compact.

Only thing matters is which one do you shoot best. Everybody's different.

G27. I have both. G27 shoots better, the round is better. You can add a +1 factory bottom and have 10 rounds.

To change it over to a .357sig its just a barrel change, you can use your G27 mags. To change it over to a 9mm, you need to change barrel and mag. Some will say you need to change the extractor and ejector. I never did change them over to 9mm ones. I've never had the first hiccup with over 7000 round shot out of it.

26 gets my vote also. I carried a 27 for years and loved it..that is until I fired the 26. With a Glock PLUS extension you have a place to rest your pinky and 13 rounds of 9mm at your disposal. That being said I replaced the 27 with a 36 and the 26 rides with my wife.

The Glock 26 as I think it is the perfect carry gun.

For me it was a matter of recoil. I have a Glock 22 and I now have a conversion barrel for it. Now about 99% of the time shoot 9mm. So I just bought the 26. I have pearce extensions for 12+ 1 and have a spare glock 17 magazine with a + 2. That is what I currently carry most days.

Either one are good choices. Me, I have a G27 and a 40/9 conversion barrel. I plan to add a .357 sig barrel in the future. Perfect tri-fecta in a very easy to carry package package.

For me, it'd be the G26, because I've more-or-less standardized my ammo inventory around the 9mm. Can't go wrong either way.

You had both previously! Which did you prefer to shoot and which one did you shoot better! Or just get both! I have a 26, 27, 33, and a 39! Which do I ENJOY to shoot most... the 26 because of the light recoil! Which do I shoot best... the 39 is most accurate for me! Which do I DISLIKE shooting the most... the 27 or 33 are snappy and uncomfortable. Which do I carry... the 27 or 39 cuz they will put the most hurtin' on the bad guy.

If you going to only shoot it at the range... get the 26.
If you going to CCW carry it... get the 27.

Just my opinions.....

What TKZ said.

You owned a G26 and a G27 and you are asking us which is better for you?

First I'd like to say thanks for all the insightful opinions and knowledgeable answers. I haven't owned or used either of these in about 4 years and I did learn a few things from my goofy question! I'm not at all familiar with a gen4 so hearing about changing the grip was good, hearing about swapping out barrels was good, possible 9mm shortage good, and so on.

My question wasn't: Do you think I should get a 26 or 27? My question was which one do you like and why?

If you don't have anything constructive to say please just move on. Don't waste your time responding to these goofy posts. And a post like this can be helpful to someone else who is making this decision. And the alien post was just a fun post. Why does this bother you?

Anyways my decision was kind of made for me as I found a new gen3 27 at a good price. They also had a 23 which I never owned or fired and I bought that also. I wonder if I should ask what is better a 19 or a 23!

Swapping out barrels has BEEN possible for some time now.
