    Glock 27 issues

    Bought a g27 about a month ago and it has worked flawlessly but i am having issues with muzzle flip. Do you think a compensator or maybe putting in a .357 barrel will help? I am to the point of trading it in on something else.

    The .40 is snappy to say the least of it. The .357 SIG is just as snappy if not more so. Get used to the feel or find a different caliber.

    Personally, I only buy guns that I have shoot first... I had made a couple of purchases that I regretted later... it was only until I purchased my Glock's that I had shoot them all before buying.... Sorry!!!

    I love the Glock 26, and knew that my Glock 23c was a great purchase, but could not see myself shooting the Glock 27. You might want to buy a 9mm conversion barrel made for the 27.

    the 27 was really built for concealment/back up/etc. a compensator will probably alter the pistol so that its purpose is defeated.

    Not really knowing anything else on how you shoot, have you tried modifying your grip/pistol hold? different loads/bullet weights? I used to have an issue shooting .357 revolvers- as in poor accuracy with the recoil. I have changed my grip and made all the difference. yup, I still feel the healthy recoil but I group much better.

    with the muzzle flip, can you still shoot accurately? if so, why worry then?

    finally, I have not looked for them in the G27 but there are glock .40 to 9 mm conversion barrells (like storm lake). maybe you can convert the barrell to shoot 9 mm and just used 9 mm mags. 100 - 125 bucks in the web.

    hope this helps.

    Well, the 1st trigger pull is dead on and if i take my time between trigger pulls i stay on target. With rapid trigger pull i am all over the place. I have a bretta 9mm and i can rapid fire and stay accurate so i know its not my grip. Plus i am shooting low grain target rounds in the g27. I guess a future trade in in order.

    I have a ported barrel I picked up just to see for myself what it would do for my 27... well, it sticks out past the slide and makes it look pretty cool!



    I don't think it does a thing for the "flip".

    My only recommendation would be to add a grip extension on the magazine. It will give you a place to rest your little finger, and that will provide some additional control.

    good luck,

    You might try a Glock 26. Less recoil, and shares the same caliber ammo as your Beretta. Simple is good, and 9mm practice ammo is still (relatively) cheap.

    I added the magazine floorplate extension (GAP) on mine. The little floorplate makes a big difference in securing your grip so it tames the flip. (I didn't mean to create a jingle, but I'll let it stay. )

    That was the reason I went with the Glock 26 instead of the 27. I had owned the 23 and found that it too had snappy recoil, so I knew that the 27 was not for me.

    You might try a 9mm barrel and magazine for practicing, and keep your original .40 barrel and magazine for light practice and for carrying.

    My G27 used to be my primary carry, that is until I discovered the G19 and my ability to conceal it very well. I believe larger is better, even for a small decline in capacity. The 40 S&W does have a totally different way of conveying recoil to the end user--there's no doubt. Even in my full size G22 which came way before I ever looked at actual concealed carry options and the small G27, I realized this fact. The G22 and G27 are both harder on my trigger finger than anything else I've ever had or currently have. I practice with everything I have as often as feasible. With the Glock, and it's design, I have gone to placing my weak hand index finger on the front strap of the trigger guard while shooting in order to mitigate the snappy acting 40 cal. I'm not sure how the 40 would work for me in another make of pistol in the same size, but I love my Glocks, and they work well for me. I guess there always comes a point in time when one makes the decision to stick with something, or figure out it's not for them. In closing I would say the 40 S&W in a polymer frame would more than likely be a bit more uncomfortable to shoot than a somewhat equal pistol that is all steel or some sort of metal alloy. While practice with the G27 may wear you down, remember that in a defensive situation you likely won't be firing a hundred rounds. If it shoots well for you then deal with the cons as the pros may well hang your life in the balance.

    I owned a 27 and later replaced it with a 26 which I shoot with much more confidence...shot placement is what it's all about, and the 26 helps me get more shots where I want them and much faster.

    I have a 27 and really like it. Be sure you get a HIGH grip on the gun when you shoot to help absorb recoil. Mag extensions may help a little. The caliber is a hot one but I take comfort in knowing that what I hit is gonna get broke - bad.

    You could switch out the guide rod for a heavy Tungsten guide rod which will add a bit of recoil dampening weight out front.

    It is a snappy little gun. The best advice is to get used to it or get rid of it. Mine is controlled by GAP floor plates which are IMO the best sub compact Glock add-on ever made and a good roll over wrist lock with thumbs forward.
