    Sorry don't know of any. I would think that may a difficult mod for a 27 because of stock in the front end of the frame. Possible to attach something to the trigger guard. What do you plan to put on the rail?

    Doesnt mention anything about 2nd Gen, but this is the idea.

    Unfortunately, even on the 19 it protrudes nearly a half inch in front of the muzzle.

    My advice? If you cannot live without a rail, trade in your 27 and get a 30.

    At one time I saw a small screw-on rail for G26/27 pistols. It would only fit the small subcompact weaponlight by Streamlight I think.

    I can't find a link to the company that sold them, though. Sorry.

    Cutting a rail into a GLOCK 27, as you asked about in your OP, will not work. Any questions?

    Okay, I searched around again and still couldn't find the add-on rail (it's been a few years since I looked).

    IMO, get a G23 if you NEED to have a rail on your gun. Otherwise, be happy with your G27.

    Buy a flashlight and learn to hold two things at once, or buy a larger gun.

    Its a subcompact for a reason.

    Yes it says for 17/19 but if you want it bad enough then it can be made to work..Just a little modification. Barrel came out nice .
