    I understand that in a kydex holster the fat slide probably wouldn't fit in the G26 holster, but what about leather? It seems like it could stretch and fit, maybe?

    The wife got me a nice glaco miami classic, and if I manage to snag a 39 I really want to use the same rig for both. The holster has a tension screw, so I am hoping that backing it out would also help.

    Personally I used a Glock 20/21 for my full size 37. I only have experience with Blackpoint Holsters. They are Kydex but they are held with leather and have a tension screw that I backed out and it clicks on my 39. With that said I have not used a Galco 26 holster on my 39 because I don’t carry OWB unless it’s full size. In summary I don’t have specific experience with the 26 Galco holster but my experience is tension screw MOST LIKELY will allow it to fit. Hope this helps!

    Not really. You may get it in there eventually, but it will be uber tight and then the g 26 will flop around a bit. Buy a G 30 holster instead.

    Water + leather can make it fit. Many years ago I had a 686 holster that I really liked and wanted to use for my 629. These are both Smith & Wesson sixguns, the 686 an L frame and the 629 an N, much larger/longer.

    Soaked the holster in warm water, stuffed the 629 in and wore it till it was dry. Perfect fit.

    quite likely, this is a cool gift, I'm sure I had no experience with such, but I drove with the 21st
