    Hi - I'm having brain fog today about my G27. Over the years I've dremeled my 27's frame into a piece of crap. Now I want to buy a new lower and leave it alone. I don't remember if a 27 and 26 is the same lower frame? I have found several 26 lowers but don't know if my 27 upper will work on the 26 - or do I need a specific 27 frame. Many thanks, jw38

    I probably shouldn't but I can't help myself.

    Thanks for the help fellows. I've got an opportunity to buy a new "take off" complete G26 frame for $175. Think I'll buy it and replace my over dremeled 27 frame. Thanks for the heads up about the ejector - I'll put in the 27 unit. jw38

    Straight (40) vs bent (9) ejector. The use of the 9 ejector on the 40 cartridge places the ejector contact point very close to the primer.

    No problem using the 40 ejector for both.

    You'd think that Glock would make one semi-bent that would work with both 9mm and .40.
