    G26 or G27 with 9mm conversion for CCW

    I am going to buy one or the other and would like to hear about your experiences using a G27 with a 9mm conversion barrel. I don't plan to shoot .40, but thought it would be good to have one just in case of 9mm ammo shortages or whatever. Will the G27 with conversion be as reliable as the G26? I am specifically looking at Gen 4 guns. I had a Gen 4 G26 and foolishly sold it, so I know it would be a good gun.

    Is that the one you had the grip reduction on?

    And I would go for the 26
    This is my Glock. There are many others like it, but this one is mine.

    I have the G33 and like it better than the G27 because of the 40 cal recoil. Get the G33 and a 9mm conversion barrel would be my suggestion.

    40 cal to me is not just snappy, it is SNAPPY! I shoot my 357 auto, no problem neither with my 10mm and 45 acp, but I do not like the 40 cal. Just my Opinion of course, your mileage may vary.

    I don't like .40s either, but I thought if I ran out of 9mm and the only thing I could find was .40.... Anyway, I was told that I shouldn't carry a 27 with a conversion barrel because of reliability issues, so I bought a 26.

    Congrats. I personally don't think if we have another ammo shortage because of hysteria that .40 will be as available as it was last time. Many people seem to have gone out and bought .40 caliber pistols based on the fact that .40 was about the only thing you could find in stores.

    I think I'll start reloading 9mm. I'm already set up for .45. Just need a turret and dies.

    Didn't really want to shoot .40, but I guess I would if that was all I had.

    I guess I'm a little late to this thread, but I wouldn't use a Glock with a conversion barrel for a carry gun... I would buy the Glock I wanted to carry.

    Good choice on the 26... I think it's a great carry gun!
