    Yes, but not on the gun. Only on one of my spare mags that I carry with me when I carry the 27 (I carry the 27 rarely). The X-Grip (in addition to the "fatness" of the 27) made the gun too hard to conceal (in my humble view). I only carry the Glock 27 when I am caring less about concealability and more about capacity (which is rare). I usually carry a single stack Springfield XDS .45 or Ruger LC9s 9mm. I love my full size Glock (in the same caliber) but, I was a bit disappointed with the 27 as a carry gun. So it mostly just sits in the safe.

    Before I switched to the P365 I carried the G26.4 off-duty. I still have it in my carry rotation. I would carry it with a G19 mag and Xgrip and it was fine for under a T-shirt. As far as shooting, never had an issue with feeding reliability. It was spot on and gave a nice full grip. I've got two Xgrips, one for in the pistol and one for the spare mag.

    My Glock 26 Gen 5 with X-grip and Glock 19 mag fits my hand well. I like it.

    I don't see the point of making a concealable gun LESS concealable.

    All depends on whether or not it is still concealable with an Xgrip (or other). In my normal Florida wear (T-shirt and shorts) you can't tell I'm wearing a G26 or a G17. Which is why when I carry my G26 it has a G19 mag and Xgrip. No difference in how well it conceals and I get 5 extra rounds (10 extra when you consider the spare mag).
