Glock 26 Review
Police Equipment Reviews has shot the Glock 26 several times. Just like all the other Glock pistols, we like the 26. It is very accurate and reliable. When we compared the 26 to the Glock 27 we didn’t notice any difference. The kick back between the two different calibers was very minimal and not even an issue. The only thing that is important when choosing one of the baby Glocks is to make sure you match the caliber to your full size Glock duty weapon. The reason this is important is because you are able to put a full size magazine into the baby Glocks should you ever need to. So if you carry a Glock 17 then you would get a 26 because they are both 9mm pistols.
There are a few accessories that you can get on the Glock 26 and those accessories are very minor ones. You are not able to put a tactical light on the 26 because it does not have rails. Police Equipment Reviews always recommending putting on an aftermarket grip like a Hogue grip to obtain a comfortable grip. The grip of the Glocks are a little slippery when your hands get moist. The Hogue grip allows you to maintain a good grip on it. Another key accessory is the grip extender. This is a small extension that fits in the butt of the Glock 26 grip that extends the grip a little bit allowing for you to get more of your hand on the grip.
