    19 vs 26

    Can make the 26 bigger, but can't make the 19 smaller.

    Primary CC weapon. Help.

    What's the question? Which one should you get? If that is the issue, my vote is for the 26. If it's your CCW gun, like you said, you can make the 26 bigger but you can't make the 19 smaller.

    Usually a question incudes a question mark. Is this what they're teaching you Gators down there?

    Generally the G26 is easier to carry, but once you start putting on magazine extensions on, they approach the same size. They're both good guns.

    Calling member Ram Rod! I cannot find your post with the G27 and G23 comparison.

    If size is your main concern then the 26 would be the better choice. The 19 is pretty size efficient compared to other like service sized models. In fact the only one I would consider to be marginally more diminutive would be the Walther P99 since it's slide and frame are more contoured than the Glocks. I have both the 26/19 and carry the 19 more but it really depends on your mode of carry and how small you must go. I use an inexpensive Fist #3 IWB kydex holster that fits both models. Both are great choices and I find them easy to shoot well.

    I like the 19 better. The barrel length is no issue as I would carry it IWB, but that extra length is a real plus in performance and ease of use.

    The slightly longer grip is an issue but I need the grip extender on the 26, so when you add that to the 26's overall length, the 19 is just a tad longer and holds 5 more shots.

    I have a 23 (same frame as 19), and a glock 26. If I could only keep one I would keep my 26 for sure; it shoots just as good, much easier to conceal, and like you side you can put the 19 or 17 glock mag in and get fullsize capacity. I would stress that the 26, with the normal flat mag is much easier to conceal than a 19. It just gives you more options, and in my opinion the smaller barrel does not affect accuracy at all in the realm of normal pistol shooting distances.

    I'm not sure. Like I said, I stole the pictures from member Ram Rod. I'm sure he'll chime in. I believe it's actually a G27 and a G23 (same sizes as the G26 and G19 though).

    Can't steal the pics. Public property pretty much. My pics are of my G27 and G19 actually. G26 is the same size as the G27, and the G19 is the same size as the G23. The Pearce +1 grip extension on my G27 is nice. I have been slowly getting away from these for carry, and only two out of six of my G27 magazines still sport these pinky extensions. Those are mainly my backup mags now. I do conceal the compact G19 almost as well as my G27...just a minor shift forward on the strong side for the larger (compact) frame. Same holster!
    I'm doing my two day long hours work stint. Most of what I post is for the benefit of the forum members. Anyone familiar with my posts can reiterate them at any time to further that information.

    Jusst went through the same thing on G23 and G27..If your going to use the pinky extension,the G26 will be more concealable but not by much.So if thats the case go G19.No pinky ext. go G26...

    Because I will be carrying most of the time I will probably end up with the 26, I could still be talked into a 19 if I found a great deal.
