    Hi all. I just picked up my first glock on Friday. It is a 26. I have to say that I did a ton of reading people's opinions on different subcompacts. After narrowing it down to the kahr and the glock, the glock just seemed to feel perfect in my hand. I wasn't sure what to expect as far as recoil but it is quite pleasant to shoot. I love this little gun. I just wish I would have tried glock sooner. The only issue I have is that one of the three magazines that came with it doesn't work right. It will only take 5 rounds. I can't get anymore in it. I am hoping that glock's customer service is pleasant as the 26. I look forward to getting much useful info from all of you. Thank you in advance.

    Enjoy your new G26. I'd try taking the magazine apart first. That may solve the issue. If not I'm sure Glock will make it right.

    sounds like someone tried to push the mag baseplate in and its stuck not allowing the feeder to go lower into the mag.

    get a glock tool and slide the mag plate off and reset the baseplate. I bet that will fix things

    ^This... Welcome and enjoy your G26, is it Gen 3 or Gen 4? Either way you made a great choice :)

    Nice. The 26 was my second 'first' glock. Had a 23 and sold it. Wish I had kept it.

    My 26 is my EDC with a standard 10 round mag and a G17 mag as a spare. Love it.

    You will buy more Glocks. They are like golf clubs. Can't just have one......

    It is a gen 3. I figured I would go with the one that is prove. Plus I just loved the way it felt in my hand.

    G26 was my first Glock and I still have it. I put around 10,000 rounds through it and it still performs like the day I got it.

    Well, I have put several hundred rounds through this little 26 now and have to say I am impressed. I know a lot of people complain about the grip size of these guns but I have to say that I'm quite comfortable with my pinkie finger under the mag. Also I called glock and they sent me a new magazine for the one that wasn't working. Even though it is a long way off I am now considering looking into a 30sf. If this 26 shoots this nice I can only imagine the 30sf has to be sweet.

    The 26 is my favorite gun by far. Gen 3 is the sweet shoot imho, since they are reliable and can be had for cheap. I've traded away from it three times and always end up coming back to it.
