new baby Glock

I just picked up my first baby glock! G26 Gen 3. I was still debating until I got there if I wanted a gen3 or 4 and went with the 3. I have not had the chance to shoot it yet, I'm hoping to get some range time later this week. I'll upload some pics here in a little bit. I intend on using this as my carry gun, and am going to add a slide release extension, mag plate extensions, and a ghost 3.5 trigger connector. What else would every one recommend?

Congratulations! This is what I carry, too. All I did with mine was put Pearce +1 extensions on the mags and put in a grip plug. Bought mine earlier this year and have had hundreds of rounds through it. More accurate than my full size G22. I'm thinking you'll love it even more once you shoot it. As far as any other add-ons / upgrades... I say do what you want, it's all yours.

Congrats ! My best suggestion is buy as much ammunition as you can afford and shoot,shoot and shoot some more,then if you think you need to change something go for it. SJ 40

Mine worked pretty darn good with just a cleaning. I later added a night sight (singular - I prefer front only), and then a grip plug just because. Ammo is a good expenditure.

Congrats on the new addition to your family! I own a couple Gen3 26's as well and have to say you picked a fine carry piece.. Only thing Id change is leaving the stock connector in for a carry gun, but thats just me. Be safe!

Recently picked up a Gen. 4 for the same purpose. I wanted the Gen. 4 with the DOT connector. I'm happy, it has quite a good trigger, as Glocks go.

Wait on the mods.

Congrats on the new 26. I'm rather partial to my gen 4 27, which I've had a little over a year now.

Before you make any modifications, especially on a CARRY gun, shoot a couple thousand rounds through it. By then, it'll be broke in, AND you'll have a clearer idea what you need.

Most SD gurus say not to monkey with a carry gun, as "overzealous prosecutors" could have a field day with you in court if you DO have to defend yourself.

I have never been to Vances. i go to the Powder Room in Powell.
and it took about two mins to fill out the paper work and two mins on the phone and that was it.

Enjoy your G26. I continue to believe it is one of Glock's best efforts. I would probably shoot it some first so you have a base line to compare. Not every part change always goes as planned. http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/show....php?t=1447998

congratulations to the OP on your new purchase. My EDC gun is a 27. I agree 100% with what this poster above said. FWIW

I'm considering a G26 as my next handgun purchase. I currently have a G19, but am a little concerned about using it as EDC because of the size (esp. the grip for IWB carry). Leaning towards Gen. 4, as I had to add a Hogue grip to my Gen. 3 G19 to keep it from slipping around in my hand when doing a lot of shooting at the range. This probably wouldn't be an issue with a carry gun, but the more aggressive grip texturing on the Gen. 4 might be an improvement, nonetheless.

Congrats on your 26. I would recommend to just polish the internals, get a "." connector and a 6 lb trigger spring. I have a 27 and have tried a drop in 3.5 and the ultimate. Went back to the "." connector because it is a lot smoother

G26's are cool!

I'd recommend several thousand rounds of Tula or Brown Bear ammo!

You mentioned magazine floor plates. I first heard of Gap floor plates on this forum. I purchased a set and am in awe how well they keep my hand from slipping on the grip when drawing and firing. I prefer them much more than the Pearce grips. Its just my opinion but worth a look.
