I've wondered myself why glock doesn't incorporate a rail into the 26/27, but on my CCW gun, I have no use for a rail anyway. Not to detract at all from your setup, awesome.
The CTC laser sight with the trigger guard attachment works perfect on the 26/27 for CCW, I think the main reason why Glock doesn't incorporate a rail for a light into this model is because will be to bulky and uncomfortable but with the Viridian C5L light/laser and the awesome job of GLOCKTOMETRY setup, is a complete different story!

Nice job. certainly looks like another option instead of cutting the grip down on a G19...and you still have the benefit of the shorter barrel/slide. Nicely done!

About the structural integrity...anyone that can compare a gen 2 and gen 3 frame of a 19/23? is there a difference in molding/reinforcement in that area? Just curious.

Not knocking the work, it looks legit and awesome mod. Jealous, I am.

I use my 26 for CCW, and I don't like the added bulk of the holsters that work with lights, and the light itself. Not to say it doesn't work for others, it's just me. Also, I use my gun/rig for IDPA, so putting a light on it isn't allowed there, and I don't want to use 2 rigs, if 1 works well already. Besides gun lights are the #1 choice of people who want to point a firearm at whatever they're trying to see. I keep a flashlight near-by. Again though, I really like this setup, and if I had a need for a rail, THIS is how I'd do it. Pure genius.

Whether a light or laser was actually put on a 26/27 or not, I think Glocks just plain look better when they've got the rail. It matches their whole square/blocky thing, along with the squared slides and sharp-angled trigger guards. I'd rather have factory rails even if I didn't use them.

lol, that's why I condisering it, still. My fiance has a ruger SR9c and it has a rail, she taunts me with it

Although the funnest reason to have a forward rail is for a grip and 33 round mags.... too bad it's not legal, nor would I want to do it with this setup. Don't think the dust cover would hold that kind of stress.

Does this void your warranty?
The Duckbill looks rather thin where the side cuts were done.

Seriously your my new hero! I've always wanted a rail on the G26 and thought the 4th Gens would have it too but was let down.

Thanks for the great step-by-step pix! Great job!

Glocktometry, how is it holding up at the range? did the light loosen up from the rail at all?

Took her out to the range again today, put some Winchester Ranger Talon 147gr. SXT HP and Federal LE Tactical HST 147gr. +P HP through it. No problems whatsoever! Cycled like a dream and stayed solid. I also ran about 100 more rounds of FMJ.

Pretty good cut there. I'm more worried to cut too much off the frame, so I just screwed on a rail adapter for my G27:

There is.....

It hasn't been necessary until recent releases of smaller light/laser units.

Glocktometry: Nice job - hope it works well for you!

Looks great.

Glock should incorporate a compact rail on the 26.

If it works on the Ruger SR9c I'm sure it works on GLOCKTOMETRY G26. Great job!..
