    Photos: Glock 27 vs PPS

    I just thought I'd share a few comparison photos of the Glock 27 and the Walther PPS side-by-side. Both are great, reliable, quality .40 caliber handguns. I would recommend both in a heart beat. I carried the G27 for about 3 months until I purchased the PPS. The PPS has been my everyday carry ever since. If you have any questions on how the two compare, feel free to ask!

    Never paid much attention but it looks like the PPS would accommodate a bigger hand more easily. I do however love my 26 and 27.

    Yes and no. The PPS is thinner, but it does come with a larger back strap that isn't pictured. The magazine in the picture is the 6 rounder, but there also is a 7 round magazine that gives you even more room on the grip.

    Thanks for the pics. The Walther looks very good.

    I owned a G27...sold it and compared ( my ranged had both as rentals)the Walther and Shield for my Ccw gun. The Walther is a great shooting gun, very Glock like trigger and feel.

    I love the look of the Walther but the trigger guard mag release has always put me off. Its just weird to me and unlike any other gun I own. Habe you had any issues with it compared to other guns?

    It was different, but practice makes perfect. I am left handed, so it actually works out well just using my middle finger to depress the mag release.

    I find the trigger guard mag release on my PPQ to have one advantage over traditional style mag releases. That is with my short fingers I can manipulate it without rotating the gun in my hand. This means I maintain
    my grip and do not have to readjust after inserting the mag. My only concern with it is if I had not trained enough with this gun would I remember the different function in a stressful situation.

    The PPS is a great gun and, for myself, I was used to the trigger within a few days of drilling at home and then some range time. Like another said I find it's actually easier for my fingers to use. I actually find it really odd, now, when I handle a gun with a button release. It feels really awkward haha, so clearly it's just a matter of practice.

    Without a doubt the G27. That is only my opinion, though. The thicker grip on the G27 actually helps with the comfort of shooting.

    Is the slide width difference very noticeable regarding cover clothes? As in would the G27 print with a certain shirt, but the PPS would not print with the same shirt? Hope that makes sense.

    Little to no difference between carrying them. While the width of the PPS is less, it isn't enough to make it more/less comfortable when carrying. The PPS actually prints a little more due to its magazines being taller.

    Thanks. That info will be useful for me in the next few months hopefully.
