G26 Gen4 Range Report

4300 Views 45 Replies 29 Participants Last post by  bac1023
So I just took out my bran new G26 that I bought some time ago but didn't get a chance to shoot it until now. I brought two 10 rnd mags and two 12 rnd OEM (not the Magpul) mags. The ammo I fired are as follows:

*50 rnds of Fiocci 158 gr.
*100 rnds of Federal HST 124 gr. (intended carry ammo)
*50 rnds of Winchester White Box 148 gr JHP.
*50 rnds of Magtech 115 gr.

I experienced 1 FTF with the WWB from one of the OEM 12 round mags. I intend to take it out at least one other range session before I start carrying it. Despite the hiccup with the WWB, would you consider this gun good to go? Would you call this a successful range session for the G26?

Thanks.

My opinion/experience, Winchester ammo is crap,
Hopefully, everyone will listen to you and I will be able to buy a freak ton of it every time I go to buy some instead of just getting a box or two, here and there.

In I don't know how many rounds of WWB, I've never had an issue with it that wasn't shooter related. Y'all don't buy it...leave it for me.

Will not be shooting WWB anymore and I likely won't be using mags with extensions (even OEM) either as there are other people over the interwebz who complained about issues with Glock 12 round mags in their G26 (not the Magpul ones.)
WWB isn't your problem. My twin daughters each carry a G26 and all we shoot out of them is Walmart 115 gr WWB ball. Stuff works just fine and is consistent. Not too dirty, either.

WB is cheap/weak range ammo and will function better on a gun that’s already been broken in. I always break in a new Glock with 124 NATO spec or +P’s. Best way to break in a new RSA.
There's no break in on a Glock, but it may be stiffer, when bran new. I've always just held my Glocks, snug, and used target ammo. No issues so far.
