    Glock 27 Pinky Extensions Review

    After multiple trips to the range with my Glock 27, I got tired of the sore hand and bruises on the back of my right hand. While the G27 makes for an incredible CCW, it is not the most comfortable thing to shoot a couple hundred rounds through at the range. I knock Hickok45 has no problem with it, but he has massive hands. I have small and fat hands so its a little rough on them. I also stuck with picky extensions only and not capacity extensions as I did not want to alter the factory spring tension.

    I have no problem shooting the Glock 27 stock. It is extremely accurate for me. This was strictly an experiment to see if I could make it more comfortable for extended shooting.

    I ordered the Scherer M-26 (2 pack) and a Pearce PG-26XL. Both are almost identical in size. The main difference is that front of the Pearce grip has a sharp edge on it and lines up in a way that pinches the pad of my ring finger when I fire. I had no issues with the Scherer. I may take the Dremel tool to the Pearce to see if I can make it work for me.

    After 100 rounds, 50 Federal Champion 180gr FMJ and 50 Winchester 180gr PDX1 BJHP, my hand had no fatigue or bruising and I could have gone for a couple hundred more. It felt almost just like firing a G23.

    I have decided to continue to carry with the Scherer extension installed as I have not found a downside yet and since they come in a 2 pack, I have one on my backup mag as well. I did not have any additional problems concealing in my Supertuck.

    Personally, I'd only edc w/the extension if it made me more accurate while also not compromising concealability.

    Point being, if the day comes you kill someone with that pistol the last thing on your mind will be the little bruise on your hand.

    But, if this is your range gun then by all means use the extension.

    If I bought a G27 I'd probably only fire one mag per year.

    The GAP really help control my G33 in .357 Sig and don't affect concealability.

    I looked into the GAP floorplates. My middle and ring fingers are too fat to fit comfortably in the space between the trigger guard exterior and the lip otherwise I would have gone that route.

    GAP plates are the bomb! Makes it a different (for the good) pistol. I can't say enough about them. I traded a Glock 22 to my brother for a 27 because he didn't like the way it handled. I put the GAP floor plates on it and let him try it again. He had another 27 the next week.

    In that case, I have some Scherer extensions to trade if anyone has some extra GAP plates laying around....

    I sanded down the exterior of the Scherer pinky extension since it was shiny, with some 320 grit. It took off the mold marks and gave it a look similar to the matte finish of my Glock. Almost look stock now except for the different check pattern.

    I put the Pearce pinky extension (w/o extra rounds) on my Glock-26 and it works just fine for me.

    I use a Pearce +0 on my G26. I thought about the GAP ones, but I am concerned that, over time, they apply downward force on the magazine, especially as the pistol flips up under recoil. Might be bad for the (plastic) mag catch?

    The Pearce grip applies force rearward, into the back side of the magazine well. No real potential wear issue that I can think of.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.
