I have two other gen 4 Glock's and none of them have so much slop as this one. When I pull the trigger through, the rear sight moves up and down a considerable amount. My older G27 is just like the others, so this G26 must be just inside the maximum specs.. Is there any way to tighten one up? I am not mad, just annoyed.:whistling:

If it has slop to affect the rear sights I for one would be MAD!

I know Glocks aren't bankvault tight but squeezing the trigger shouldn't affect the sight picture through frame/slide fit.

I'd return it, send it to Glock (probably a waste of time) or sell it and take the hit.

I've owned many Glocks over the years, 3 G26s, 2 G17s, 1 G19, 1 G30, 1 G21, 1 G23.

None had the slop you mention. YIKES!

I shot my Gen 4 26 for the first time this afternoon. No slop, but the front site was sideways. They gotta go anyway. :upeyes:

OK, I am going to spend some time at 25 yards and try to regulate the sights. If it groups as well as my G17, then I will ignore the slop. If not, back to Glock it goes. Till then, sorry, no video.
