    Got my new G26 Gen 4 on Friday. RELXXX with test fire date 01/18/11. Took it to the range this Saturday and shot 150x WWB, 100x 2yr old 124g +p Federal EFMJ, and a box of 124g +p Speer Gold Dot. Zero failures. My wife then shot some WWB through it and the first shot was an FTE. Correcting grip she was able to shoot another 50x WWB through it with zero failures.

    I started off with the large back strap because it felt good in my hand initially. I realized (too late) that the larger grip was causing my thumb webbing to over extend and grate against the rough texture. Ouch. I'm thinking that using no back strap will be much more comfortable but I'll have to wait a week for my hand to heal up.

    Quite satisfied with this gun so far!

    Have found I shoot much better with no backstrap as well.

    Selcouth, glad you are happy with the G26, did you clean and lubricate prior to the range visit?

    I did clean and lube before shooting. Found it shipped with a bit more lube than I like. Though I pretty much left the rails alone with their copper long term lube.

    Love my Gen 4 26. 800 trouble free rounds through it now. Shoot it better than my Gen 3 26 because of the slimmed down grip.

    Here's questions for G26 owners:

    - How many mags and what capacity are normally included with the G26?

    - How many mags and what capacity if I buy a GSSF G26 from Ed's Public Safety?

    Thanks in advance!

    If I am not mistaken, ALL GEN4s ship with 3 mags now (at least the current models do, to include the G26 and G27).

    That is great news. Both the 3rd Gen 26 LE's I purchased only came with two magazines. Yet the higher capacity 19 LE's and 21 LE's came with three. I always figured that the 26's should have came with three due to the capacity.
