    Are there any issues with using a gen4 G26 in holsters made for the 27? Is there any difference in the frame size at all?

    Thanks :wavey:

    Nope, no problems at all. All of these guys (G26/27/33) share the same holsters:

    Rey,
    Can't close thread yet! The rest of us have to tell you about all the other guns that will fit in a 26 holster!

    If they allow room for the barrel, the same holsters will fit all sizes of 9mm, .40 S&W, .357sig, & .45 gap Glocks. The 10mm & .45acp have bigger frames and slides.

    Ok, so there are 4 different frame lengths, and 3 different widths?

    Target, full, compact, subcompact

    .45GAP & smaller, .45ACP & up, G36

    Is that correct?

    Someone who has them all would have to pipe up here, but I understand the difference between the GAP slide and the 9/40/357 slide is negligible while the frames are the same.

    From what I read, the 45acp/10mm is a thicker frame and the 36 is unique - a thin single stack.

    The first 2 of the holsters Beanie posted will hold any LENGTH of Glock, but the one on the right is limited because the end is sewn shut.

    The Glock is not the best-shooting 9mm on the market, nor is it the most aesthetically pleasing, ergonomic, or concealable.


    But ******* if it isn't practical. That's why i love them. I never thought I'd be a Glock guy, but I find myself loving them more and more.

    The 36 should fit 19/23 holsters.

    You nailed, ADK!

    I share holsters (Comp-Tac MTAC) with the G30SF and G39. The frames sizes are different, but the slide widths are very close. Closer than a 39/26. I've also got some OWB kydex holsters that work with the G20/21 large frame pistols, but those are mainly for the range.

    You have a good eye to see that the MTAC and Infidel holsters (1 & 2) are the "slide" versions, so the 17/19/26 combo, 22/23/27, and 31/32/33 combos will all work with those holsters.

    The Remora on the end holds everything from the subcompact Glocks (including the G39,) Shield, XD-S, and P239.
