    I just bought a gen 4 27 and shot 150 rounds through it yesterday. I love everything about it, except I'm having trouble with the gun raising up in my hand as I shoot multiple rounds. Every few shots, i have to readjust my grip.

    Would the gap floor plate help? That lip on the front of the magazine looks like it would help prevent that.

    Yes sir, the GAP finger rest extensions certainly solved that same issue for me with my 26, 27 & 39. Money well spent since the extensions add nothing to the grip length yet still accomplish improved grip retention.

    I'd 2nd the part about improving grip. It works for me on my G26. It also gives a little assist (tactile feel if nothing else) to get the pistol out of a holster.

    +1

    I use the GAP floorplates for all my G27 mags.

    Stop what you're doing.

    Go get some!

    And while I'm at it, I must say the GTUL mag plate tool takes all the guesswork out of removing mag floorplates. Highly recommended.

    Have a great day!

    Another +1. It keeps your grip locked solid. With a factory flush fit magazine on my G27, I feel the need to readjust my grip every few rounds. YMMV

    Talon grip was the solution for me, those baseplates did not help at all!

    Gap totally changed the feel from this thing is way to small in my monster hands wow my g27 fits like a glove. It may be because I shoot it so much more but it feels better than my g22

    If you have bIg hands, which I do not, they would be great. They do not help my grip at all, but help with the draw so I leave them on.

    Put the Glock factory +2 extensions and they work great. Just enough extra grip to be right and +2 never hurt anything!

    Nice. That setup makes me want to trade off my 23 for a 27.
