Yea I know about that mag release - I sent my G23 in to have the grip scaloped at the mag release for easier access. I was using it in an advanced CCW class and had a heck of a time doing a tactical reload with my fat hands. I had to reach up with my left hand and release the mag first and then reach for my second mag.
I tried to go the exetended mag release button route but did not like that either. Stuck out too far rubbing against my hand while firing - not a pleasant feeling. Also I worried about it hanging up on clothing as I do carry it. I can imagine for a south paw it's even harder.
I'm waiting for it to come back from Bowie Tactical Concepts to try it out. Can't wait to get it back - I miss it.
Glock 26 for wife
I also had all the problems you encounted with the 26, hard to rack, very hard to lock slide etc. I was having second thoughts about whether this was the right gun for my wife.
When my wife fired it at the range she had a couple of FTF problems which were a direct result of limp wrist. I fired 100 rounds with no malfunctions.
I'm thinking about keeping this for myself and looking for something else for my wife. I'm going to try a couple more range trips to see if she can handle and fire the 26 without the above mentioned problems.
Good luck Bill
In regards to extra mags, i have four KCI 15 rd non-factory mags and they all work great in my 19. I would recommend them. enjoy the 26!
also if you would like pictures of the take down on a glock, let me know and ill take some with my 19, it looks the same as with the sig though
Salty is this the video you were looking for? or is it close enough?
Glock 26 field strip:
Close enough RC - that camera refocusing made me ill.
The one I was talking about is from a guy in VA sitting at his picnic table in his backyard. He did a cleaning disassembly and then a complete disassembly. Good video. It's in this forum somewhere - maybe under the Gunsmithing part.
Yea I found RC it's under Glock Gunsmithing with the title Glock detail stripping - imagine that
