    Anyone have one? I have a G17, and I like it ok, but it's a 1st gen and the grip sucks for me. The G26 is a 10/02 model with the finger grooves, which seem to make a big difference as to how glocks fit my hand.

    I found a LNIB (maybe 50 rounds through it) for ~$400 shipped.

    do you think you could get $400 out of it if you decide that you don't like it?

    $400 is fair, i'd say.

    The dual recoil springs soak up the 9mm very nicely, the G26 is a nice shooting gun. i've found even with large hands, the subcompact Glocks tuck in and fit me very well, and it's just about the smallest package you're going to fit 10rd of 9mm into.

    I LOVE my G26, itis my primary carry gun, it shoots very well, and is surprisingly accurate for such a small gun. I shoot it as well as I shoot my G19, and $400 is a good price, especially for one that is only slightly used.

    The only problem is that it's online, I gotta find a local place that will do a transfer for a reasonable price.

    And yeah, I'm pretty sure I could get very close to $400 for it if I don't like it, it looks brand new.

    Taurus PT111:
    length 6-1/8 in
    height 5.125 in
    weight 18.7 oz

    Glock 26:
    length 6.29 in
    height 4.17 in
    weight 19.75 oz

    Amazing how being an inch taller, the PT111 is lighter. I've picked up carrying my Taurus lately.

    i said "just about", not "THE" smallest. ;) But you're right, Glock slide assemblies are very dense for their size.

    Any shop around here will do a transfer for you, i do it all the time. i'm sure you won't have any trouble finding someplace. $20-25 is the going transfer fee, if they want more than that, keep looking.

    I have a 17 also, but was considering a 26 for concealed carry. Maybe I will sell the Glock 17 to get the money together.
