    Congrats, you made a great choice in the G26. I use the factory extended slide stop for 10 years and its still running great. The GAP floor plates are also a good addition. For sights............

    This is the one I have.

    I sometimes teach newbie women with it, and they've never mentioned a pinch, and they seem to like the 26 with that particular extension. I use it some, no pinch, but also prefer to carry without an extention, and just curl my pinky under.

    In general with guns and mags, sometimes a mag fits tight to the bottom of a gun, sometimes the mag fits loose. All my Glocks seem to fit fairly tight or snug, not loose. But if the fit was loose, maybe that creates the opportunity for a pinch.

    I have a G27 and use the GAP floor plates on the mags. They don't provide a pinky rest but are great for added control.

    Congratulations! I love my G26. As far as the pinching with the mag extension... go to Lowe's or Home Depot and tell them you need small black O rings. Put the O ringall the way down the outside of the mag and make it flush to the top of the extenstion. Should fix the problem. As far as mods... all I did was add the Pearce +1 extension... put a grip plug in the bottom of the pistol grip... and I changed out my slide cover plate with an aircraft grade aluminum one with a custom emblen on it. I thought about tritium sights too, but just haven't done it. My G26 is my EDC gun. You'll love it! :wavey:

    That o-ring idea is pretty clever- well done.

    Enjoy your new G26. I continue to believe that it is about Glock's best effort. I have Big Dots on one and Truglo TFOs on another and like each set but I suspect sight preference varies alot from one person to the next.

    #17 O-ring form hardware store around the magazine body will fill the gap and prevent finger pinch.

    I'm with you on the pinch -- thought it was just a girl thing.
    Got the o-ring at Home Depot, now there's no problem. Love my new G26. Pierce extension is nice too. Might get a couple more.

    Welcome to the forum! Try the GAP baseplates, they work really well on the subcompacts. The O ring is a #17 and can usually be found in the plumbing section where the washers for faucets are located. They are cheap too!

    I also just put a Glock 26 Gen4 on layaway today. I doubt if it is there long because I am not very patient when it comes to something new. Thought I better pick it up while it was right there in stock, after the way all guns are flying off the shelves right now. This will be my first concealed carry size(compact gun).........already have ordered the Scherer Mag Grip extensions....
