Got my new G26 Gen 4 on Friday. RELXXX with test fire date 01/18/11. Took it to the range this Saturday and shot 150x WWB, 100x 2yr old 124g +p Federal EFMJ, and a box of 124g +p Speer Gold Dot. Zero failures. My wife then shot some WWB through it and the first shot was an FTE. Correcting grip she was able to shoot another 50x WWB through it with zero failures. I started off with the large back strap because it felt good in my hand initially. I realized (too late) that the larger grip was causing my thumb webbing to over extend and grate against the rough texture. Ouch. I'm thinking that using no back strap will be much more comfortable but I'll have to wait a week for my hand to heal up. Quite satisfied with this gun so far!
