    Glock 27?

    I want a compact pistol of a major caliber. I was looking at a 36. I just read on this forum about all the problems people have had with 36's. How about the 27?

    The Glock 27 is a great pistol. I have a 33 (basically a 27 in .357SIG). You can't go wrong with a 26 or 27!

    The 27 has an excellent reliability record. The only problem is the potential malfunction due to limp wristing. The 9mm does not have that problem it seems.

    Welcome to the forum. Never heard of all the problems with the G36. I have had a G27 for over ten years though---like it, love it, depend on it, etc........ So what is your actual question? I know you're not here to stir the pot between the G36 and G27-----you can't! P.S. I carry 24/7, how 'bout you?

    I have done my best to limp wrist my G27 to no avail. Fires and comes ready everytime. So I let my daughter's friend fire the 27 several times. She is very small and has small arms - I thought this would for sure end up in limp wristing - nope. Came ready every single time.

    I spend most of my time in California and I'm not always able to legally carry, but when I can it's been kel tecs and seecamps. The 36 problems I read about were on this thread http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...decisions.html so that's why I wanted to know about experience with the 27. I shoot my 19 quite a bit but don't carry it.

    If it says "GLOCK" on the frame, you're good to go.

    The G27 is a great choice and solid performer. The G36's issues were early on in production, but they do live up to Glocks reputation now.

    another "+1" for the G27. Its my every day carry. Conceals well, and performs well at the range. I had issues with cheap winchester FMJ "range ammunition", but no issues with any other ammunition.

    I am relatively new to handguns and not a proficient shooter by any means... but I am able to hit reasonable groupings with the G27 over up to 15 yards.

    I do have a S&W J-Frame revolver as well, and actually think about selling it as I am far less accurate with it.

    Why? I conceal the G19 as well as the G27--in the same IWB holster no less.

    My g27 has been nice to me. No problems with it ever. You won't be dissapointed with it.

    G-27 works great for me, I sometimes pocket carry it if I am wearing cargo type pants. It is a good CCW choice.

    Love my 27. A good, solid, no nonsense working gun.

    The Glock 27 is a great gun. I carried it for months. BUT, I switched to the G26 (9mm) for the following reasons:

    • Recoil is less
    • I could only fill the magazine to 8 instead of 9. On the G26, I could fill it to the full capacity of 10, thereby giving me 2 extra rounds
    • Exact same dimensions
    • Cheaper ammunition (at least the practice stuff. Defensive ammo is about the same price.)


    You will not go wrong with the G27. But also look at the G26 as well.
