I purchased a new 27 and took it to the range for the 1st time. I have had a 23 for awhile and that was my carry weapon till now. I was very pleased with the 27. I found it to be a very comfortable to shoot. It fit my hands well and I was able to be more accurate with the 27 then the 23. I have a tendency to push my shots off center to the left with the 23. With the 27 I can keep my shots more centered on the target. My finger reaches the trigger more comfortably on the 27.
I also noticed that for some reason I can see the sights better on the 27. I know it's about a half inch shorter than the 23 but that shouldn't make that much of a difference. I have factory sights on both but will probably put night sights on the 27 soon.
I am looking forward to continued practice with the 27 and going to some IDPA events.
