When shooting my 35, 21 or 19, it's bang bang bang and they all hit target where intended in nice tight groups. I picked up a 26 and I'm all over the place, even at closer range. Any tips at getting this under control? I would lean toward a sight issue if the were all at least grouped.

Thanks

Your two fingers under the trigger finger actually afford you the
best grip in your hand. For me, keeping a firm two finger grip while having a smooth pull and keeping my sights on target does the trick.
Once mastered that's helped my grip and accuracy with all size guns.

I suggest that you check the sight picture against a white background. My groups with the G26 were flying saucer shaped. I found that with the stance I was using, the width of the front sight and rear notch I wasn't able to index the sights for windage, the front sight more than filled the notch. Once I went to night sights with a dot front and plain black rear with a wide notch my groups are nice and round again.

I don't know your hand shape or size but I shoot about the same tucking the little finger under the butt with 10 rounders as I do shooting with 12 round mags and the pinky on the extension.

Have you tried pulling the trigger with your middle finger?

Only thing I have is maybe your pinky is doing something different sporadically.

Trigger control, trigger control, trigger control.....errors in trigger control are 'magnified' by the smaller grip and the shorter sight radius....also, get some dummy rounds.

Read page two of my blog if you don't know what to do with the dummy rounds.

Adding a Pierce extension and Pachmyar slip on grip improved my G27.

Put some talon grips on the 26 . I also have GAP ENTERPRISES floor plates on my 10 round mags. They are awsome !!! Look them up. They don't look like they would help but they do. Brings your contollability way up. There worth there money I promise.

If this is the case he might want to use a file and make the rear notch wider. Or have a gunsmith do the job with a milling machine.

Things went much better yesterday at the range. RonS was right in the fact the the front sight totally filled the void in the rear sight, so I guess a different set is needed. But I made a point of really getting a firm grip on it, and it made a huge difference. Thanks for the help all.

Glad you made some progress. I am not sure but I would bet that Glock uses the same sights regardless of how long the slide is, so as the barrel gets shorter the apparent width of the front sight increases. If you like the rear and don't want to spend a lot of money you might look at a narrow front sight and a front sight tool. I didn't like the OEM sights anyway and since my G26 is the go to gun now I invested $129 and had a set of Trijicon HD night sights installed at a gun show.
