If you could only own ONE .40SW Caliber GLOCK,What would it be?
G23 with .40/.357sig barrels
Would have to be the 23. Large enough to compare with most other manufacturer's full size autos, small enough to be easily concealed when necessary. Best all-around, IMHO. It's the one GLOCK 40 cal. that I would own if I could only own one. (Thankfully I'm not limited to only one, though. I also love my G22, G23C, G27, and G35!)
G22 then add .357 barrel and G17 upper and you got 3 guns in 1. Full size is always more comfortable to shoot in .40 than a compact. That's why I sold my G23.
Pile On! Another 35
35. Did I say 35? ;2
fits my hands better then the G23.
Really, there all made by glock... and there all made in the best pistol cal in the market so you've got that part right the rest comes down to what fits you better.
Isnt i a bit like saying which of these t-shirts should i buy, the one that fits me, the one thats to small or the one thats too big?
I would go with a G22, or maybe a G35. The reason is simple; the full-size frames fit my hand better than the compact ones. A friend of mine has a G23 for his duty weapon, and it just doesn't fire well for me, due to being small for my hands.
G22. The balistics of the .40, from shorter and shorter barrels goes downhill more than 9mm. I have chronoed my G22 with Cor-bon 135s, exactly 1300 fps. But if you look at the G23 and G27 chronos for verious weights and compare them to G19 and G26 you will see the .40 starts loosing it's edge.
The G22, in a good concealment holster, will work well in winter. Add to that, a 15 round mag and a 15 plus2 mag for a spare, and you have got, basicly, a .357 mag with a huge firepower advantage.
If I have to go to a more concealable Glock, I head for the G19 and G26 as they are more effecient with their 9mm ammo (not to mention how cheep the ammo is!)
Not trying to be an iconoclast, BUT, I'd say the G-27 for purely selfish reasons. I carry one a LOT.
However; I still carry my G-23 every chance I get, and I still consider it to be the best all around fighting and carrying pistol ever devised.
Only have one .40...the G23.
23 probably, but perhaps 27.
With standard mags, the 23. Best combination of handiness and concealability and number of rounds.
With reduced capacity mags, the 27 'cause it is concealable in some places where the 23 isn't, and I don't like mags full of air.
If concealibility is not an issue, then the 24 for the longer barrel and full size grip. If I also wanted to shoot IDPA, then I'd buy a 35 top end.
