I got to shoot my friends G27 at range last night and it seems more accurate for me than my G19? Why would that be? Seemed like I was more on spot with the 27 than my own G19? Something I'm doing wrong that would cause that?

I like the feel of the 19 more & it also felt like the 27 was harder to hold on to compared to my rtf. seems like an rtf G26/27 would be sweet.

btw-all my friends without rtfs said they wanted one next after shooting mine.

I took my wife to range last week. This was her 1st time firing my G27 (& also anything 40sw). She also shot it better/more accurate that the compact Sig 9mm we were using that day as well, which she has put countless rounds thru. When I noticed this & asked her about it, she indicated that the G27 seemed to "point" a little better.

I'm thinking since the G27's barrel/sight radius is shorter, it doesn't take as much effort to hold it straight & steady = a better POA; POI result (?)

I don't know but I expected a 19/23 to be more accurate than a 26/27.........

I think that because the smaller Glocks have to be held a bit differently & maybe a bit snugger than the 19/23 might be the reason that some people shoot them better than the mid sized Glocks, I think it's realy the dedication to the specific gun & how your holding it & strokeing the trigger
I've shot a G26 next to a G19 & the G19 was more accurate & was quicker between shots than the sub compact..
That being said my next Glock will be a 26 because it carries better..

Its unlikely you are exceeding the mechanical limits of the G19. I would assume the difference in accuracy is based of your grip including trigger finger placement. Apparently the G27 just works better for you if you shoot it better then the G19....

it's really because .40 is such an awesome round it actually KNOWS where it's supposed to go! it looks out of the barrel and gives itself a little pep talk "I am one with the target, I am the target, I'm going to the target" :tongueout:

And if you listen in the lounge a little you will find out the 9mm is incapable of penetrating the paper therefore making it appear you missed more shots :whistling:

i <3 the way my g26 shoots, better than my 23
it's weird because the 27 actually felt awkward to me yet I still seemed more acurate with it.

I've been waiting for 4th gen 23 to come out too.........

I prefer and am more accurate with my 27 over my 19 and 23, but then again I shoot my 27 more often.

I agree,
I don't believe a compact vs sub-compact or vissa versa is any more accurate. All of my pistols are more accurate then I. I just shoot some better then others.

Just the opposite here, My G-19 hands down, is more accurate than my G-27. But I carry the G-27 daily, go figure?!?

Chances are we are dealing with shooter to gun compatibility, not maximum mechanical accuracy of the two pistols.
Exactly! Just because you shoot a certain firearm more accurately doesn't mean it is more accurate. You would have to bench them to find out truly which one is more accurate.

(Stand up nervously)

"My name is John and I'm a former Glock hater."

(Crowd responds - "Hi John")

My first Glock was a gen 2 G23 that I purchased for a deal.

I wasn't impressed.

It is a great size and I love the capacity (after I could get 13 round magazines for it) but I just couldn't shoot it worth a darn. Into the back of the safe, never to be seen again.

So, fast forward to getting my CCL and I'm looking to upgrade my 9MM CZ 2075 to a 40 or 45 for carry. My FBI friend LOVES his G27, won't let up on me looking at one, and badgers me into going out and trying his.

Bingo - I'm in love. It shoots great!! I'm amazed at how much better I shoot the Baby Glock. Same ammo, same range, completely different results. All for the better I might add!!

My G27 changed me from a Glock hater to a Kool-Aide junkie.

(I've done my meeting for today)

This is what is happening. I'm living proof.

I guess everyone is different but I would think the G19/G23 to be more accurate than the G26/G27

I was also impressed with my G27 and was surprised at its accuracy in under 50' shots. It may just be the size or the way it feels in my hand that makes me shoot it well. I added the Pearce mag extensions and it fits nice.

This is a shooter issue, not a gun issue.

For all intents and purposes, a longer sight radius should allow we as the shooter to be MORE precise with our shots, not less.

But very few shooters are out shooting the mechanical accuracy of any handguns (unless the thing has some defect). I usually don't give any off-hand accuracy tests much weight.

I have no problem believing it was something that I was doing. that's partially why I posted this thread to try to figure out what I could be doing to cause this.

the pinky finger thing Paul_J mentioned may be part of it.
