    Picked up my g26 today and fed it different types of ammo- ball and JHP from 115 to 147. Absolutely flawless and accurate. Nice recoil for a 9mm. Added the grip extensions to get 12 rounds. All the positive comments about this Glock seem to be true- at least from my experience. Wish I had bought this long ago. It is Gen 4. Be safe out there.

    Thanks! Did my research on this one and couldn't be happier. I bought it at the range where I shoot and decided not to even clean it before testing. I usually always clean a new pistol before first firing but decided to shoot this one out of the box. Just amazing! I did not think I would shoot this 9mm as well as my Sig 228 but it seems more accurate with tighter patterns- in my hands.

    I love my G26 at the range. Seems to handle recoil better than my 19. I have a Pearce pinky extension on one mag.

    Good to hear you are enjoying your G26. I continue to think it is one of Glock's best.

    First of all congratulation on the new G26 and I have found mine to produce the same results. Bought my Gen 3 back in early 2010 and I just love it. It is also my main CCW so I have put it through some extensive testing and just operates like clock work. :thumbsup:

    Have fun and be safe out there.

    Congratulations on the 26. I am quite happy with mine. I picked up a 4th magazine, 2 of them are 12 rounds, the other 2 are 10. Works for winter, summer, gun friendly states, and the not so friendly. Mine also sports a Crimson Trace laser LG436.

    Mine eats any ammo, as I expect yours will.

    I love mine. It hasn't been flawless, but very good. It came with an older ejector & I was having an occasional stovepipe. I replaced it with the latest one recently. Have not had an issue since. It hasn't always run good with very light ammo like Federal Champion. But works flawless with even cheaper Tula!

    I wish it came with a rail! That would make it perfect for me.
