No need to change them. And the ejector and extractor have functioned flawlessly so far cycling the 10mm caseings. I'm verry happy with my setup.

    Also I own the G27,23,and 22, and have the 9mm conversion barrel and the .357 sig for all three. I have thousands of 9mm rounds through my G27,23,and 22. Again have not changed a recoil spring, ejector or extractor.

    G 17, 22, 31 are the same from the factory. I don't have time to do it now, but I will post links later tonight to verify this for you.

    I am speaking for gen 2 and 3 only. I will have to verify if this applies to Gen 4 Glocks.

    OP - If you do not already have a long gun of some sort, then I would indeed recommend one over another pistol.

    I usually recommend starting with the most likely threat (close in), which you have covered with your pistol. Next is in-home defense, which IMHO is where the shotgun excels - when you absolutely need to stop a home invader from getting into your safe room, nothing beats a load of buckshot.

    Then, take a look at your neighborhood. Use Google maps, and look up your address, using the aerial view. What is the longest shot you would need to take in the event of civil unrest? If the farthest you can see is about 100 yards or so, you will be well defended with your shotgun, running slugs. If you can see further than that, you may wish to add a rifle or carbine of some sort. If there are other homes in the area, an optic (scope) is a nice addition for both accuracy and helping to identify threat/no threat situations (is that guy approaching carrying a handgun? or just a cell phone?).

    Hope this helps!

    First gun I bought was a "home defense" style shot gun. Got some fancy dancy shells for it. I got the pistols covered. So I agree with you that now I am looking for an AK or SK for close rifle coverage. Sure I would love an AR but the cask isn't there. I have a scoped .22 that could take out Zombie Squirls if need be......

    Not sure if you want to run a scope on your rifle, but if you do, the SKS and AK will take some mods to do so properly.

    I recently got a new package Marlin 336 lever rifle in .30-30, that came with a scope and sling, for under $500. It will do everything a civilian needs to do for self defense. My only mod was an elastic butt cuff for an extra 10 rounds on board the gun. I'm not one of those who think a civilian needs 30 round mags in a rifle for self defense (no offense to those who think they do).

    Another option that is a bit less than most ARs is the Mini 14 Ranch Rifle - it comes with scope rings.

    And another option is a bolt rifle, though most do not have iron sights (which is a must, to me, in a defensive rifle - as a back-up to your optic). Moisin Nagants are pretty cheap...

    Glock 19 if you ask me. Thats my next handgun to get. Now as far as rifles go, I will one future day purchase an AR of some sort. But that will be a day in the not so near future.

    Curious as to your reasoning for waiting on the AR? My dilemma is I have to drive about an hour and a half round trip to get to a good outdoor range. I wish I had property I could shoot on closer, o have a shotgun that sees little action.

    The 27 would be nice because I don't have a .40 anymore and the 27 could be a carry piece and I wouldn't have to get a new holster.

    The 19 would be nice because every 26 could use a big brother to share ammo and mags with. Would be a bit big for me to carry but I'm sure I would try from time to time.

    And then there is the 30 but my Kimber takes care of the .45 but it would be nice to have one of those as well.

    Thoughts?
    I use a G19 for many years, good all around weapon (size, weight, power)... but now i carry a G36 or G29.

    I chose the Glock 19 since you already have the little brother (G26) which is in the same platform and caliber, so you can share mags and ammo. Plus, you are already used to this caliber. Later on, you can get the Glock 27 and Glock 30.

    I am liking the look of this Ruger mini-14:
    Ruger® Mini-14® Tactical Rifle Autoloading Rifle Models
    It is about 1/2 lb heavier but I like the collapsing stcok and rails. Not sure about the lever action on the Marlin but I am sure with practice I might be able to keep it on target and pop that lever.
