    I picked up a new G26 today. I guess I now have a Glock collection. (G19 & G26).

    I noticed a difference between the G19 and G26 when I was checking out the G26.

    I will try to explain what I noticed, but it may be difficult to explain by words.

    On my G26, I noticed that if I push straight down on the chamber area of the barrell (with the slide forward in the ready to fire position), the chamber area moves down about 1mm. At the same time, the slide moves back about 0.5mm. My G19 does not do this.

    Is this a concern? I am fairly new to Glocks, so I am not sure if this is an issue.

    My G26 does the same and my G34 doesn't. It's probably something specific to the sub compacts. Looking forward to hear from others.

    More importantly - what happens when you pull the trigger while the chamber is loaded? Sorry - couldn't resist. I have noticed a number of ways that the less-tight tolerances that are part of what makes Glocks great impact the 'feel' and characteristics of the guns. Congrats on the purchase, if you're like most of the rest around here, you will discover that shooting it is even more impressive than the other factors that might have led you to buy it (concealability, price, reputation, etc.).

    At least I am glad to hear others do it also. I assume this means it is OK for the G26.

    Never noticed it before but just tried it on my 26 and it does the same thing.

    It's fine. Just shoot the gun, my friend.
    The 26 is my favorite.

    Sounds good. Thanks for all of the quick feedback.

    I only had a slight concern, since my G19 did not feel the same. Yes, I am anxious to get to the range and shoot it this week.

    I plan on doing CCW, so I am going to leave the G26 completely stock. I have never carried before, so I feel a little more comfortable with the 5.5 connector.

    I like to shoot IDPA with my G19 and it has a 3.5 connector and the extended controls.
