    Jack

    G-27: 6.29L x 4.17H x 3.46 Barrel

    G-36: 6.77L x 4.76H x 3.78 Barrel

    G-23: 6.85L x 5.00H x 4.02 Barrel

    They are all close in size, but not the same. You can use the 27 and the 23 in the same holster with an open bottom, but the 36 barrel height and width is just a little different!

    Just from what I've tried with both guns...

    Having bought a G30 years ago, shoulda waited for the slimmer G36. I like the feel better than my G30.

    Oh well

    Open bottom OWB, like Galco Concealable. Even the Unckle Mike's Kydex works well (Not as concealable, but still functions well for range use.).

    The 36 will fit in any holster that's made for the 19/23. Obviously, a 26 & 27 can fit into holsters for the above, but not the other way around, unless it's an open bottom.

    Here is a fun training drill for your new G 36.Full mag,lock and load fire two, mag change with a full mag.

    I found that the mag change is a little different than I expected.Really seat the mag hard if it does'nt lock up. The last shell in a G36 mag is staggered at the bottom of the magazine and then moves up inline like all the top shels do. It's not a flaw but something to look at. Some metal magazines of other makers will slide right out if not locked up. On a rapid reload you dont always hear that little click when a mag seats and locks. Then a click and no bang on the first shell from the mag reload is real loud.

    I like the looks of the Watch Six and will probably be looking for a leather holster too. Seems everyone that has one likes them.
    Yes, I've put my 36 into a C-TAC with no problems & have put my new 19 in a kydex holster specifically for a 36 w/o problems. They're essentially the same gun. The 36 is about 8/100th" shorter & 5/100th" thinner. A tight fitting handmade leather holster for a 36 "might" not fit a 19, but that's about it.
