I was skeptical of 2 things before joining this site:
1) baby Glocks in general
2) G27 recoil management
I went ahead and jumped on a deal for a Gen 3 Glock 26 simply because it was in OD green. Came to find out it was an absolute pleasure to shoot despite the fact that it was a baby.
Liking the G26 so much, I started researching the G27 here and found lot's of posts about it being the most horrible Glock to shoot. Just recently I read on another thread here where it was loved by many.
I thought "what the heck"....I love my 26 and I love .40cal...let me give it a shot. My local dealer got a batch in so I jumped on a Gen 4 Glock 27.
Shot it earlier this morning and punched out some nice groups. Sure it has a little more recoil than a G26, but it's to be expected with larger round. Not a deal breaker at all.
I will say that the GAP floorplate makes a HUGE
difference in both the draw and
This forum has cost me over $1k in the last month already
Another thing that threw me off was that I didn't need any backstraps for this little beauty.
On full size Gen 4's I use the large backstrap to be able to line up properly on my targets.
I guess since the largest "hump" of the grip on the babies is centered in my palm, larger backstraps are not needed.
I'm able to line up "right on" every time just the way it came out of the box (which is a slighly smaler diameter than the Gen 3 baby Glocks by the way).
Anyways, keep up the good work and keep the info flowing guys!!
