Just took my G26 to the range today for the first time and overall I am very impressed. It's surprisingly less snappy than my gen 3 G19 and I like how it fits in my hands (in factory form, no +1 or any extensions). I threw 290 rounds of mostly FMJ at it but did mix in several variants of HP ranging between 147 gr and 124 +p and for the most part it handled it very well. I did, however, have 3 malfunctions that I am somewhat concerned about. My very first attempt at shooting it, I had the slide closed, loaded the magazine and manually racked it to load the first round. This resulted in an FTF, the round jammed half way in the chamber. I wrote that off as it being new and tight and needing the slide to be locked back Next malfunction was the last round of one of my G19 mags that resulted in an FTE. The round fired but did not eject fully and jammed in the gun. The last malfunction was another FTF, which ironicly enough was also another last round from one of my G19 mags. It jammed while attempting to enter the chamber simlilar to the first FTF. Now while I can somewhat excuse all three of these as a result of me using the G19 mags and not having the slide locked back, i must admit I am somewhat frustrated. I've not had a single malfunction with my G19 after several thousand rounds, and had 3 within the first 300 today. Also, my hand is completely chewed up from the new gen 4 grips. Granted I won't be shooting nearly 300 rounds too often, but damn, those little bumps wear down your hand pretty quick. Thoughts?
