Yes, I am aware that the 9mm guns may not become quirky until many rounds have gone downrange. For many shooters, that may never happen. They shoot a box every couple of months and call it good. And, yes, that's the thing with the 33 and 39. There aren't a lot of them out there so the sample size is limited. As to subcompacts, I am truly torn. I would consider the G26 for reduced recoil, the G27 because I reload .40 for my wife, the G33 for no particular reason except the shape of the cartridge should preclude certain types of jams and the G39 because I load .45 ACP by the dumpster load. Resetting the dies to .45 GAP shouldn't be a problem. I have to toss the G26 because it is a late model Gen 3 9mm and probably the G33 because, well, just because. That leaves the G27 and G39 as viable candidates. The G27 gets a lot of heat from new shooters due to recoil but I can't imagine the G39 being any less. And I'm not a new shooter. The slide on the G39 is fatter than the G27 but the overall width of the guns is identical according to Glock. I suppose I'll go with what I know and buy the G27 but I'll always wonder about the G39. Or maybe I'll buy them both, over time. I don't know how that works out. I'm please that Glock Customer Service is so responsive but concerned that they need to be. I'm also convinced that many of the purported problems are due to wimpy ammo and marginal shooters. Not all the problems, but many. Richard Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
