G26 or G27

I have both and am considering selling one - any advice on which one to sell? It just doesn't make sense for me to keep both as I can only carry one at a time and would prefer to get proficient on the I keep. I shoot both about the same.

You will get mixed opinions with that question. I believe you will have to decide that one on your own. They are about the same to me.

Do you have more mags and ammo in 40 or 9. Do you have the big brother for either?

keep the 27 if you already have the 40-9 barrel even better if not buy one.

Good questions but, unfortunately not. I may replace the one I sell with the big brother though.

I would go 9mm all the way. That's what I did, and I think glocks are meant to be 9mm.

Tough choice. I own both and will never part with either.

Really? Hmmm....lets see...... G26 is a 9mm shooter only, but the G27 40 cal can switch barrels to shoot 9mm (and becomes a G26 in like 30 seconds) and also can switch to a 357 barrel- and is basically 3 guns in one and the exact size/design as the G26- That's a real tough one my friend! :confused:

9mm all the way. Not a .40 fan, with modern with defensive ammo the BG won't know the difference between 9mm and .40, end of story.

Besides Glocks are meant to be 9mms...

I had both also. Sold the 27 and kept the 26. If i had it to do over I'd have kept them both. .40 cal seems to be a little easier to find by me right now.

Both great guns, I just happen to shoot the 26 better.

This one will always be debated. Personal preference is a major factor. Is premium ammo is available, either 9mm or 40 S&W seems to do fine. If premium ammo is not available, the bigger 40 S&W should be better.

Also, if you shoot the 40 S&W well, you will shoot the 9mm better. Considering that misses don't count, you might lean more toward the 9mm.

Of course, I could not choose and I have small concealable handguns in 9mm, 40 S&W, 45 ACP, 38 SPL, 357 Magnum, 380 ACP, 25 ACP, 22 LR, 22 Magnum, etc. I normally carry a 9mm, either a Glock 19 or a Kahr PM9.

If you have to part with one I would give up the G26. I prefer 40S&W for carry over 9mm any day. Also, as said you can always buy a conversion barrel for the 27 if you want to shoot 9mm.

I would lean towards keeping the G26. I would also consider which could be sold for more money.

Seller's remorse will soon set in. You'll be sorry you sold it and prolly spend more money to get another one. The only solution to this would be to stay with the G27. Add a conversion barrel and it becomes a G26. With a 357 Sig barrel installed it becomes a G33. Shoot what ever you like or can find in tough times.

Thanks all - I find that one just sits in the safe. I really don't consider either of them comfortable target shooters. I'd prefer to get a 19 or 23 rather than having one that just sits around and doesn't really get used.

Sell the G26 - except hang on to a few G26 mags.
Then get a 40-9mm conversion barrel for the G27.

You can swap barrels and mags in seconds.
And shot both calibers from one gun.

I shoot 9mm, 357 Sig and 40 S&W with my G27.
