Friday my LGS finally got in some new Blue labels. Due to my schedule I won't be able to pick up my new G26 til the middle of next week.

So I am getting up a list of accessories.
Pinky mag extensions.
Night sights.
extended slide stop.

I have a holster for it. I picked up carry ammo for it yesterday.

Any "must have" stuff I should looking for to welcome the new member of the family home?

Nice choice!:hand9:
Keep in mind that the extended mag is really not necessary, and it could possibly release a mag...getting depressed in a holster.OMO

I am thinking extended slide stop. Not an extended mag release. I like the mag release on the Gen 4 Glocks

Superb choice! I have been very pleased with mine since last September and I've shot it several times in IDPA matches and done well against much larger guns with longer barrels and sight radius's. I like the Blade Tech paddle holster for IDPA matches and carry under a vest or jacket.

I had purchased some +0 Pearce mag extensions for my G26 but found that I can carry more easily with the flat plate factory mag and I can shoot the pistol well with my pinky under the grip. The recoil is extremely manageable. The mag extension snagged my shirt more and for the added grip length you may as well carry a G19.

As far as accessories, I would consider picking up some G19 mags and X-grip grip extenders and carry them as a back up mag. Also, I have had great experience with a Remora holster with the small sweat shield. I carry with it, but you can use it to cover the trigger whenever the pistol is not locked up and it can be quickly tucked in case you need to do so. I can even carry mine in mesh shorts in a pinch.

I'd skip the pinky extensions for sure. One thing I added to my Gen 4 G23 was a Glockmeister grip plug. For the Gen 4's, it is the best fitting and best looking one available. It also makes mag changes under pressure much easier. Ever get one hung up on the empty space? I have. Not anymore.

I am also becoming a big fan of the Grip Force adapters. Not so much because of recoil control or grip angle, but because it allows me to get a CONSISTENT grip on my gun when drawing from my holster.

other than that, lots of 9mm ammo. Enjoy!
