    Hi there enthusiasts. I am new to the forums but reading through all the info on here has been a great experience.

    I already own and love a new G23 Gen4 for which I also have the conversion barrel to 9mm. I use it with the G19 Gen4 0-4-3 RSA and also have a G19 trigger housing(ejector) and a G19 LCI extractor on order.

    I am now looking to do the same thing with a G27. I already bought and received the conversion 9mm barrel for the G27.

    First off, where is a good place for me to find the G27 Gen4 in stock? I have availability to get the G27 Gen3 today but thinking of going with Gen4 so I can use the smaller size grip to fit my hand better.

    Having said that, I don't want to be waiting too long to get a Gen4 though.

    Ant thoughts on why I should look specifically for the Gen4 instead of the 3?
    And any help on where you guys/gals know of that I might be able to get a Gen4 without getting majorly gouged? I would even be open to getting one that is lightly used if necessary as long as it has EVERYTHING with it like factory shipped.

    Thanks in advance.

    So no one knows of a good available source for G27 Gen4's ?
    I can understand the G26's would be harder to find but the G27's shouldn't be too bad right?

    Well IMO the Gen 3 because I dont like the RTF grip on the Gen 4. However I do like the new RSA and the loaded chamber indicator on the Gen 4. I have smaller hands but the Gen 2 and Gen 3 fit me great, I EDC a Gen 2 G23 and think my next Glock will be either a Gen 3 G27 or G17. It is really personal preference between the Gen 3 and 4.
     
  5. I am in NorthEast Tennessee and there are G27's every where and NO G26's to be had . I want the G26 because I dont have one....

    I don't see a point in waiting unless having the smaller grip is that important. If it isn't then get the one you can. Glock is backordered on most pistols and they will be trickling in very slow over the next few months.

    I would wait for Gen4 just for the bigger magazine release and extra magazine. The magazine release is so much better Imo. I have to slightly reach for the gen3 mag release.

    Hey iDiggs9 send me a PM and let me know the names of a few local stores in your area with G27 Gen4's you saw in stock recently if you don't mind please. I would like to look them up and call them and see if they would be willing to sell to me and ship to my FFL.

    Thank you sir (or maam)
