    Smile Glock 23 and 27

    I'm sure this is another of those basic questions, but after searching and finding nothing - here it goes: Are the Glock 23 and 27 barrels interchangeable? Also, will they fit into the same holster?

    I'm contemplating my next Glock purchase!!!

    The Glock 23 and 27 barrels are NOT interchangeable.

    However, both weapons WILL fit in the same holster. Get a holster that has an open bottom for the G27 and the longer G23 will fit in there nicely as well.

    I carry both of mine in a DeSantis open top minislide.

    i have a couple holsters for my g17, and the g23 fits nicely in them as well. getting a holster for a g23 would likewise allow you to fit a shorter barrel length g27 in there as well.

    I'm currently carrying a G27 in a MS Watch 6 made for a G19/23. Works great and is very comfortable. I actually prefer it as I find the longer holster helps stop the muzzle from the more compact G27 from digging into my "meat".

    If you buy an open bottom holster for the Glock 27 you will be able to fit the 23 and 22 in it, as well as their 9mm variants.

    yes you can put a g23 barrel in the g27. you can not put a g27 barrel in a g23. a g27 will fit in a g23 holster and other glock model holsters (g26,19,17,23,22,and so on)

    I stand corrected. I didn't even consider that the G23 barrel would fit in the G27. But I don't think that I would do that anyway.

    Well you got your answer. My Glocks, 19, 23 & 27 share the same holsters As long as the holster was made for the longer guns, the shorter ones will also fit.

    Well, having just bought my first Glock in a long long time (owned a G17 briefly in 1992) I can tell you, I love my G23! And I see a G27 in my future.

    From what I can tell, there are many holsters that will work for the 27 and the 23. The barrels I am not sure about. I know the 27 will accept the 23 magazines.

    I love my 23. I know that to be a cast iron fact.
