    Picture comparison on G27 & G23

    I have been meaning to get around to doing this for a while now. I know the subject comes up often about the size comparison between the 23 and 27 glocks. I have both and thought I would take some pics for those of you that have need to see them compared.

    Some of the pics have my mag with the pinkie extension and some have the regular mag. in them, my extension does not give me any more capacity.

    I find that the 27 conceals easier for me because the back of the grip is what usually prints when carrying IWB and as you can see from the pics the grip of the 27 with the extension is not as long as the 23.

    That pinky extension is the worst thing you can do for a concealment gun.

    That's a good set of pics. Thanks for taking the time to post them. They will be quite helpful for anyone trying to decide between the two.

    That is good. We ought to have a place for comparison pictures like that for future reference.

    That is your opinion and you are entitled to it.

    I prefer to carry a weapon that I feel confident with, which includes being able to hold and handle it competently, so I have a pinkie extension on my weapon.

    Well, I did that once, but your pictures are better IMO. I've been getting away from the pinky extensions on my G27 mags. Only two out of six have them now.
    Quite a lot of folks have debated the size issue for concealment of the Glocks in compact or sub-compact. I do conceal my G19 nearly as well as my G27 without extension, I just shift it forward a but more.

    Personally, I'm glad I went with the compact, and passed on the sub-compact. I'm no longer a skinny fellow, so it's no big deal to hide.

    Interesting... I carry my full size M&P 9 or .40 IWB and never have a problem printing even when I wear shorts and a tee shirt which is most of the time. I use a Custom Carry Concepts IWB Looper or Quick Cover. Both have FBI cant.
