Glock 23 "Short"

One of my favorite carries in my rotation.
It's a Glock 27 with 13 round mag and a A & G spacer.

I carry a Glock 26 with G19 magazine as backup. I've thought about getting a magazine extension but have not done so thus far. I've just added a Glock 30S to my carry rotation and hope to pick up a G21 magazine tomorrow. Now might be a good time to try a A & G spacer for the 30S.

They do work great.

if you want the size drawback of a 23/19 with the short sight radius drawback of the 27/26, you've found it. I'd just carry a 19/23. Oh yeah, I already do. . That said- A&G sleeves are good, primarily for reloads.

Interesting. I CC my 27 IWB at 3:30, but seldom CC my 23 that way because the longer grip of the 23 is more prone to print. In another thread, the OP took a 22 or 23 and cut the grip down to the length of a 27's grip. All be benefits of a long barrel (velocity, less muzzle flip, longer sight radius) with the concealability of a 27.

I wouldn't do either, but what Johnny talks about and the considerations Ryobi mentions are why this is a minus not a plus.

Personally I'd love to see a Glock 22/31 with a mid-size grip and mag.

Yes I know they can reduce the frame and make it so but I'd love a standard Glock made that way.

Honestly, I don't feel it's a drawback at all. i don't plan on shooting targets at a greater distance than 15 yards. Even with the shorter site radius, I'm dead on. I like the shorter barrel...IMO of course.

I'd rather cut down a G23 to hold G27 mags.
