As a large handed personal/home defense glocker I just had to post my feedback on the Gen 4 Glock 27. I have owned and shot Glocks for several years now and also shoot 1911's and revolvers. I have experimented with concealed carry quite a bit. While I enjoy shooting my 21sf the most and cannot complain about my 19 for concealed carry this 27 would be the one glock I would keep IF I could only have one. Why? Large backstrap and texture fit and feel great - solid grip. Never thought I would like my pinky hanging underneath but it actually helps the solid grip. How does it shoot? As accurate as my 19 and felt recoil with the double spring makes it feel the same shooting. I carry an extra 22 magazine for a spare - no need for a mag extender. The good news is that the Gen 4 26 and 27 were not affected by the recent recoil spring issues - I can vouch for that with the flawless function after several hundred rounds.
