Standardizing on Glock 9mm

445 Views 10 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Joezilla
I am wanting to standardize on Glock 9mm for my carry and home defense purposes, mainly for the mag compatibility. I have the 19X for home and sometimes carry, but want something just a bit smaller for EDC. I believe my choices are the Glock 26 and the Glock 19. I can get the MOS version for the 19. I can also get the slide milled for a red dot for the 26, at extra expense.

What opinions do you guys have on my idea? Which gun is more shootable? Accurate? Easier to EDC? Better all around gun?

If you want mag standardization, the G26 is as small as you can get (43/x/48 all use a different mag).

Gen 5 G26 has a MOS version available.
Personally, I think having all matching mags is, well…silly.

First off, you can break stuff inserting an overlong/extended mag (eg, putting a G19 or 17 mag into a G26, etc) too forcefully—like you would under stress.

Second…as long as it’s fairly obvious that the mags are different, it shouldn’t be an issue.
