    Hey all. I just took my new G27 to the range today. I put 400 rounds of WWB through it cleaning it a few times in between. I noticed it was kinda hard to hold onto. I have to constantly regrip because it flips up so much. The big problem was that I got a blister on the tip of my index finger now. Does anyone else have this problem? I cant wait to rent the G23 to see if I get the same problem. If so, I'm probably gonna ditch the .40 idea and go back to 9mm. What are your thoughts?

    Pick up a shovel, or maybe a wrench, and do some manual labor without gloves on. That'll get you some man fingers instead of your sissy skin.

    give the 40's to me. I had a 27 that I bought a 9mm conv. barrel for to shoot cheaper ammo. it was SOOOO lame shooting 9mm once I got used to (and enjoy) the blast of that gun with 155 grain blazer :D

    I had that same problem with a RTF22. I finally got rid of it.
    When I shoot my 20, 21,32, or 30SF, no problems.
    I put it down to the way the gun wouldn't move in my hand.

    I have a G27 also, I never got a blister on my finger, granted I don't shoot 400 rds at a time. I think you just need to stop being a whiny wimp :poke: I'm joking(kind of). I think the big issue is that you shot 400rds at once. I use the regular 9 rd mag and one with a finger extension. I usually shoot 100rds at most. I find the WWB well...crappy, and of course I have probably around 1000 rds of it left. It is not accurate at all in my G27. I would not go back to a 9mm. I got rid of all my 9mm's except for my HK P7M8. It's funny I hear alot of people complain about the muzzle flip of the .40, I never have any issues with that aspect. Yeah certain ammo like 165gr I feel it's more snappy but I still have no issue or complaints...:dunno: Since you say you have a hard time griping it, it sounds like you would be better off getting a plus one pinky extension, I have Scherer and Pearce, do not get the Scherer the Pearce is much better. Or you can just get a extension that doesn't add an extra round. Good luck!

    I like to clean it a couple times. Its just what I do when breaking in a new one.

    I like getting that factory lube off of 'em. I leave it for awhile though, assuming that it helps break in or it wouldnt be there. 400 rounds of 40 cal....hmm I guess $200? yowzaa, thats a fun day at the range. I miss $5/box 9mm.....sniff

    I dumped my 9mm's and switched to 40's and 45. It took a bit of getting used to but I'll never go back. My G27 is a great gun. No issues at all with control once you get used to it. I also had to add the Pearce extension to help with control and hand placement.

    400 rounds of .40S&W is pretty punishing...

    What he means to say is to send your beast to me, it sounds like it is wild and needs to be tamed. I will tame that beast for you...

    Yes, it happened to me with my G23's. What I did to fix the problem was to install a smooth faced trigger to replace the grooved trigger. Works great and it's a swap you can do yourself in five minutes. I haven't done this with my G27 because I don't carry or shoot that gun much.
