    I want a plug for my Gen 3 G26 and don't try to talk me out of it.

    How many here are happy with the plug they got and does it stay in place?

    Which ones work and which ones don't. Thanks.

    I have "grip plugs" in all my Glocks and they stay in pretty well. Initially the one of my 27 would slide out about an eigth of an inch after shooting 100 rounds or so. But I took the soldering iron and made some "stipples" on it and it hasn't moved since.

    All my Glocks enjoy their butt plugs. No worries about them coming out as they all have a tit that engages the lanyard hole on the frame.

    Never understood why this unsightly gap was left when the guns were designed. Everyone knows that all holes should be filled!

    Ronaldo, hole filler (not to be construed in an unnatural manner)

    I have 'em in all of my Glocks and agree that the 26 can be problematic. Since it doesn't have the lanyard hole that larger models have, you MUST (or at least I have) secure the plug with something.

    The stippling mentioned above is an idea that I never thought of. :crying:But what I did to my 26 was superglue. I tired silicone but it kept starting to slip out. I tried that a few times then gave up.

    I then cleaned with alcohol, roughed up the surfaces and put a little superglue on the plug and smacked that sucker in. So far, it has stayed thru about 1000 rounds without problems.

    That is a good idea, I just used a small dab of silicone sealer to hold it (G27). Knibs hold in on 23 and 22.

    I've got one in my G22 (Gen2) that stays put very well and had one in my G26 (Gen3) until about 2 weeks ago. Didn't realize it was missing out of the grip until I went to clean it. Just ordered another one for the G26 from Cheaper Than Dirt. I'm going to put a drop or two of super glue on it this time before installing it. We'll see if that holds next trip to the range.

    Hhmmm.... I may do that to mine as well. I understand the need for air & water to escape, but still don't care much for the large opening with out a plug.

    Im not the only immature ******* that laughs to myself everytime I read one of these threads with the words "butt plug" in it, am I??? Surely not!


    Ive used pearce and scherer plugs, and both stayed in just fine, if you would like to have just a bit more length to the backstrap, the scherer will give you that, which is what I use in my G27, and I like having that little extra to grip. The pearce is flush...

    In my Gen3 G27, I use a Pearce plug. It moves out about half a millimeter during firing, and I press it back in when I'm done. It has never fallen out.

    Glock's engineers, and I'm not saying every decision they make is a good one, didn't see any problem with closing that hole themselves with the lock design. Several people owned them with no problems.

    I have one on my guns. I forget which company makes it. I think it looks better than just the empty hole, can improve reload speed, and I shoot lots of competitions.

    Get one, you'll be happy.

    Sounds like the Pearce is the one I want. I like the idea of it being flush with the bottom.

    It was pretty funny. "Clips" and "Butt Plugs" are always a source of amusement when they are mentioned with handguns.

    Magazines and grip plugs on the other hand, those are more straight forward questions.

    I put a piece of electrical tape around it and then put a drop of super glue on it and they stayed put,
