    Range Report: Glock 26 Gen 4

    Hey All,
    I bought a used Glock 26 Gen4, which reportedly had about 400 rounds through it.

    It appeared NIB when I got it, with no finish wear on the barrel hood or top of barrel.

    This might be the most boring range report EVER.....
    ZERO MALFUNCTIONS AND VERY POSITIVE EJECTION!

    Ammo: American Eagle 124gr FMJ & Speer Gold Dot 124gr +P
    I fired over 350 rounds in one session, and had super accuracy (hitting clay pigeons from 7 to 30 yds) and no drama.

    I loved the positive ejection pattern, with no brass to face/head. ( I think the 124 gr ammo allows for snappier slide action, eliminating any weak ejection.)

    Sights are: Ameriglo Hack with the Orange-in-day/Yellow-in-dark front and solid black U rear. Fast sight picture and with a blacked-out rear sight, I find it much easier to keep both eyes open while shooting (sometimes three dot system makes it hard for me to obtain fast sight picture without closing one eye.....something I do NOT want to do in an actual gunfight)

    I have GAP floorplates installed and also utilized some G17 mags for spray and pray fun!

    I was also breaking in two new holsters this weekend:
    Comp-Tac Infidel Ultra (highly recommend this one: http://www.comp-tac.com/product_info...roducts_id=261
    and a TT Gunleather PhoenixII (always excellent products from TT)

    Brought it back home, cleaned it up, and ready for concealed carry work. (pics to follow soon)

    Sounds much the same as the range report for my Gen 3 G26. No malfunctions and no surprises. The darn thing just worked.

    I've yet to handle a Gen 4 Baby Glock but yours sounds very nice.

    Great guns!!! My Gen 4 is the one gun I carry as a primary and will always keep it because it's been so good to me in IDPA competitions against much larger guns ... but mine is a breeze to conceal and carry.

    I carry a Gen 4 G26. I'm hooked on Glock. I want a 19 next.

    What are your thoughts on the GAP floor plates vs the regular floor plate?

    Love to carry with the GAP floorplate installed. It helps a great deal when securing a firing grip from concealment. Hate to drop the G26 under pressure, and maybe lose your life!
    I practice drawing from the holster quite often, and can do it easily enough without the GAP, but like them enough to think that Glock should make them standard issue on the subcompacts!

    I like the GAP floor plates, not just for the small area they provide when you are gripping the gun but also for grabbing the mag from a belt carrier or an emergency strip if it doesn't fall free from the pistol. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that, for me, those benefits are actually more important than the finger rest area when I'm gripping the pistol.

    Yup. Boring. Might as well get used to it. That's how they are. They just meet all expectations for a defensive pistol. Reliable, concealable, able to hit COM from arms length to 21' no problem. It doesn't get better than that.

    All my Glocks have been delightfully boring. If the ammo box says the same thing as is engraved on the slide, it works. No muss, no fuss, ejects to the right. Don't need no stinking 500 rounds for break in or any of that other stuff that the exciting guns need.

    I love my boring Glocks, all four of them. A 26, a 30, and a pair of 19s. I'm planning to add a 36, and maybe a 34, to the inventory before I'm done.

    Interesting. The GAP floor plates sound like something I'll be trying out when I get the gun.

    Do you mind posting a picture wearing the Infidel Ultra? I've been debating purchasing one and am curious to see who high it rides when it

    Where do you find GAP magazine floor plates? I'd like to try them.
