The G26 will handle them just fine.

The G26 can handle anything its bigger brothers can.

I've been giving serious thought to the G26 and decided to rent one a few weeks back since I had the G19 with me and had a box of the Ranger T 126 gr +P+ ammo. I loaded up the G26 and can say it's at least the equal to my G19 in accuracy and fed it just fine. I'll be using that when I get the G26.

The 26/27 are some beastly little pistols, performance way out of line with their size.

They'll be fine.

My G19 eats them with ease, im sure the 26 is no different

Anyone have chrono results for +P+ from a baby Glock? Seems to me you'd lose a lot of velocity with a 3.46" barrel. Kind of like shooting a .357 Magnum in a snubby. It's not worth it.

There are actually 2 answers to your question.

1. According to the Glock Owners Manual you should only use ammunition that meets SAAMI or NATO Specifications. Since +P+ is a designation for SAAMI member companies to use on ammunition that is over SAAMI pressure limits, you should not use +P+ ammo in your G26.

2. According to the Glock Armorers Manual. American 9MM +P+ is just fine in 9MM Glocks.

I carry +P+ ammo in my G17 and G19. They have suffered no ill effects from shooting it.

You'll lose maybe 40-50 fps over a G19.

Really don't lose that much velocity and I think they are worth it.

They go BOOM very nicely in my G26.

I used them for awhile and they were 100% reliable for me.

Big flash, big boom and never an issue.

I carry HST 147 now. Faster flow ups and easier to find on a regular basis.

9mm does not lose that much velocity in a 3.46" versus 4" barrel. It may not be worth it to you but my 26 (the oldest of the two) has always been loaded with 115 +P+, 127 +P+ or 124 +P loads. The added recoil of +P+ versus standard pressure 9mm in a 26 is negligible, particularly when compared to the recoil of a 27.

Here are a few sites with +P+ velocity info from a G26. Other ammo info can be found, too.

It doesn't look like the shorter barrel is too detrimental to the performance of the Rangers. They're my carry round.

I don't really notice a difference in recoil between 127gr +p+ Ranger-T's and 115gr WWB out of my 26 unless I am thinking about it. It's a good deal louder, though.

I used to carry 127+p+ in my G26. I had one round fail to feed and lock up the gun. In other words, if I had been in a gunfight, it would have been curtains. I lost confidence in the round because of that and dropped back to 124+p which have been 100%.

3.5 barrel glock 26 ..most 115 +P+ go 1250 fps. ( out of my glock 19 they go 1300 fps plus.. Rem 115 +P+ went 1400 fps!!! ) All shot over my chronograph

Plus 357 magnum in 2.5 inch barrel S&W 66

few of the loads I have chronographed

Corbon 125 JHP = 1373 fps
Win 158 JHP = 1120 fps
Rem 125 JHP = 1297 fps

I would say it is worth it...

45 ACP chronoed out of glock 21 and 3.5 inch colt 1911 officers model

Rem +p 185 HP 1120 fps in glock 1011 fps in 1911
Corbon +P 185 HP 1143 fps in glock 1050 fps in 1911
Rem 230 FMJ 812 fps in glock 760 fps in 1911

You'll get nearly identical expansion, and a little better penetration from the RA9T 147 gr. load. Also, you'll lose a lot less velocity to the short barrel and won't need +P.

From Winchester: http://www.winchester.com/SiteCollectionDocuments/flash-SWFs/law_bullit.swf

Bare Gel
Load Penetration / Expansion
127 +P+ 12.3 / 0.64
147 13.9 / 0.65

Denim (4 layers)
Load Penetration / Expansion
127 +P+ 12.2 / 0.68
147 14.5 / 0.66

Heavy Cloth
Load Penetration / Expansion
127 +P+ 12.2 / 0.68
147 14.0 / 0.66

Wallboard
Load Penetration / Expansion
127 +P+ 12.6/ 0.68
147 15.0 / 0.67

I don't know the length of the test barrel they used. I do know they recommend 147gr for shorter 9mm handguns.

Winchester Ranger T's 127gr +P+ are my carry load in my 26 and PM9, to date it's performance has been flawless through over 2500 rounds.
