    Aren't a lot of light options since there is no rail on the 26/27. IMO weapon mounted lights are cool (and I have a TLR-1) but with training, I think you will appreciate a handheld light more. Handhelds offer a lot of advantages.

    As for lasers, Crimsom Trace and Lasermax are the two big contenders and I would recommend CT.

    Adam nailed it. There just really no light mounting options for the baby Glocks.

    I have a G27 with a Lasermax internal guide rod laser. Crimson Trace also has laser grips that fit the subcompact Glocks. CT also has just made available a laser that attaches to the front of the trigger guard. But they may limit your ability to use some holsters. I have Lasermax lasers on my G27 & G29 (they are the oldest in my Glock collection) and Crimson Trace laser grips on my G19, G22, & G23. I like the CT better for the instant on switch that is activated by a firm grip on the pistol. I may be getting the trigger guard laser from CT for my G36 in the future as it is my only Glock without a laser of some type. I don't want it to feel like the "red-headed stepchild" of the family!

    As far as lights go, I have no idea what is available for a G26 or G27. I have a Glock light mounted on my G22. It is my "nightstand, home defense gun". It also has Tru-Glo Tritium Fiber Optic sites on it (as well as on my G23). But I am not sure that the G26 or G27 have a rail (mine doesn't but it is 14 years old, newer models may have them but I don't recall if they do or not.

    As I approach 50 years of age, my eyes appreciate any and all help in the sighting department! Good luck with your search.
    Current handguns: Glock models 19, 22C, 23, 27, 29, & 36; Kimber Pro CDP and Polymer Custom; Kahr PM9 & CW9; S&W models 6906, 386PD, 66; Taurus 85 Ultralite Ti; Browning Buckmark;

    Former handguns: S&W 4"686, 4" 620 & Sigma .380, Taurus 617 Ti, Kimber Pro Eclipse, Walther P22, Glock 30 & 33.

    IMO, that's the way to go right there.

    There's one laser called the TF1 I think. Replaces the rear sight. Very small, not much bigger than the normal rear sight.

    no rails so you will have to go to the other options as stated above.

    Yeah, I saw one of those the other day on tv. Here's a site that has done a review of it and loads of pics to check out too. Here's the link to the companies website.

    I'm torn on the whole laser thing. It has a great benefit at the range to help you correct incorrect shooting or alignment, but I'm not wild on someone following a red dot back to me.. It could just be me, dunno?

    Glock27/ KaBar TDI/ MTAC Holster. I have more also, but this combination works well..

    THE FACT YOU HAVE TO MANUALY TURN THAT ON / OFF, makes it useless...

    not quite:

    The activation switch is a strategically placed button at the back of the slide that is easily activated by the thumb in a normal shooting position for left- or right-handed shooters.

    I wouldn't find it useless. Heck I wish they made all red dot sights with a easy on off or pressure switch.
