Mr. Ayoob,

I tried asking this in the glock pistol forum but if I have a G26 and a G19 I know the 26 will take short barrel ammo will the 19 work with regular ammo? What are the barrel lengths that make up short barrels?

Thanks,
Brian

"Short barrels" for 9mm are generally seen as sub-4". G19's 4" barrel is basically "service length," same as the S&W 9mm police pistols were for decades. Both should work fine with standard ammo.

best,
Mas
