A friend just bought one. When the slide is back and locked the barrel seems to angle up. Is that typical of the 26? I have a G-19 slightly longer ballel but it doesn't do that. I removed the slide and barrel..replaced it..same thing..
Is this a defect or normal for the G26?
Both of my Glocks (17, 19) do this.
It's the design of the gun. A lot of auto-loader pistols do the same thing.
Most autos of 9mm or greater chambering operating with a tilting barrel. Your Glock 19 does the same thing, it just doesn't look as pronounced as on the shorter 26.

Don't feel bad,freaked me out the first time I saw it too!!
Hey, Mike...good to see ya back...and well!
Definitely normal. I don't remember what the style of barrel is called but I'll bet that someone here will chime in and educate all of us. Enjoy your 26. It's a SWEET gun.
Must be a common things with Glock my 23 does that as well....
The barrel tilts up to let that thing that rattles in all glocks have more room to rattle when the slide is back.
