    I have searched but was unable to find anything on a G19 cut down to fit a G26 magazine.

    I found some G23's with the grip cut down to fit the G27 mags, but can't seem to find any more for other models.

    Thanks

    G19 to G26 vs G23 to G27 = no difference.

    Thnx Butch
    I understand that the guns themselves are the same size, as I said I've seen the .40 cal grip cut. I would like to see if anyone has done the 19 to 26.

    I guess Im visual and want to see an actual 9mm it's been done to. :sorry:

    What would be the practical purpose of such modification? "Glock 26L"? :dunno:

    There would only be one difference.It would have a "19" stamped on the slide instead of "23"....:supergrin: Not really sure what the point of doing such a thing is though.:dunno:

    I like the length of the 19 barrel, the wight and how it feels in my hands.
    A buddy and I were talking about how he loves the feel of the 19 grip, but wants a 10mm and he's slowly converting from 1911's to Glocks . So he'd want the grip on his 29 cut down to be smaller, ala the G19 and the back strap trimmed down to mimic a 1911 more.

    Then the discussion of shortening the grip and possibly getting the G20, as he likes the longer barrels. As I said I like my G19 and the only thing that is noticeable when I am carrying it, is the grip.

    He talked about cutting the grip down to G26 size, so the search is on to see if anyone has done it, and if they have, find out how they like it.

    All that and I'm typing one handed, lefty at that, cause I just had shoulder surgery last tuesday and am on some good meds! :rofl:
