I think you did everyone a great service by posting these pics. May not solve the internal strife on "Crap...should I buy the 26 or 19..." because they are both pretty awesome in their own right and it's human nature to try and justify our purchases. I guess another couple points that could be considered are 19=slightly more weight due to increased ammo capacity, and length of the barrel if carried IWB or in the pocket. My solution to this debate is always the same....buy them both!!! Thanks for the visual comparison....much needed!

Nice pics...great visual comparisons. I would not make my decision based upon a few more shots, but rather the ease of concealment...I'd stick with my G-26.
I also wouldn't buy the G-26 and add an extension...if that's what I'd want, I might as well just get the G-19...OMO

Ya, those pictures are nice, but I think you should bring them both by personally, with ammo, and let me take them to the range and shoot them. Then add a provision to this bailout debacle so I can purchase 50 of them. But I digress.
I tried the pinkie extender. By doing that, the grip is now the same length...but you have a shorter barrel. Why would someone do that? Sort of defeats the purpose for concealment purposes.
I have both...in several calibers...and have practiced carrying them both. The G26 conceals much better on me (I am a short guy). But you don't know until you do an actual comparison. Thank you MTAC.
