I have a G27 and use the GAP floor plates on the mags. They don't provide a pinky rest but are great for added control.

+4 on the GAP floor plates! http://concealablecontrol.com/about.html
They aid both draw and grip of the sub-compacts.
The wife has a 26, also. We have them on all 12 magazines for the subbies.

Picked up my buddy's Glock 34 and pretty much shot 5 rounds through the same hole! lol Needless to say I am proud to switch and say bye bye to my XD!

Haven't had a chance to get out and shoot it yet but I did rent one from the gun shop and put 50 rounds through it. It had an extended mag +0 for extra grip and if I wasn't careful where I put my pinky finger, I got pinched where the mag meets the grip. Are there any other extenders that dont pinch? I would like to get some tritium sights on it at some point after I've put acouple hundred rounds thru it. Also are there any mods/upgrades you guys have tried and like?
Congratulations! I love my G26. As far as the pinching with the mag extension... go to Lowe's or Home Depot and tell them you need small black O rings. Put the O ringall the way down the outside of the mag and make it flush to the top of the extenstion. Should fix the problem. As far as mods... all I did was add the Pearce +1 extension... put a grip plug in the bottom of the pistol grip... and I changed out my slide cover plate with an aircraft grade aluminum one with a custom emblen on it. I thought about tritium sights too, but just haven't done it. My G26 is my EDC gun. You'll love it!

That o-ring idea is pretty clever- well done.

Gotta go with the GAP floorplates http://www.tacticalsight.com/enterpr...ock-p-175.html

And the XS Sight Systems Big Dot tritium night sight. I use just the front, and it is the way to go!

Enjoy your new G26. I continue to believe that it is about Glock's best effort. I have Big Dots on one and Truglo TFOs on another and like each set but I suspect sight preference varies alot from one person to the next.

#17 O-ring form hardware store around the magazine body will fill the gap and prevent finger pinch.

I'm with you on the pinch -- thought it was just a girl thing.
Got the o-ring at Home Depot, now there's no problem. Love my new G26. Pierce extension is nice too. Might get a couple more.

Welcome to the forum! Try the GAP baseplates, they work really well on the subcompacts. The O ring is a #17 and can usually be found in the plumbing section where the washers for faucets are located. They are cheap too!

I also just put a Glock 26 Gen4 on layaway today. I doubt if it is there long because I am not very patient when it comes to something new. Thought I better pick it up while it was right there in stock, after the way all guns are flying off the shelves right now. This will be my first concealed carry size(compact gun).........already have ordered the Scherer Mag Grip extensions....

The O-ring thing didn't work for me. I tried several different types, but none was just right not to cause mag loading issues and prevent the pinching. Also O-rings like to ride up the mag for some reason.
What worked for me was ditching the extension all together, and adding the medium back-strap. Different back-straps will change the position of your fingers slightly, so before spending a lot of money just experiment with different straps and see if one of them cures your problem. Also make a conscious effort to keep your finger off the gap.
I would suggest shooting and/or carrying without the extensions, but if you absolutely must have something then I recommend a G19 mag (good luck finding one now though) and the X-grip. I have one of these setups and it makes a nice full grip with the extra 15 round capacity. Very comfortable, but your back to a full G19 grip.
Congrats on the G26!

I put the extended slide stop, extended slide lock, and Meprolight night sights on all my Glocks.

No extensions for me, I like my pinky tucked under. What made a big differece in my grip was the addition of Talon granular grips.

After trying just about everything, I settled on the GAP floorplates for the G26 I used to have.
