I have recently been considering trading my G23 (Gen3) for a G26. However, before I do such a thing, I am interested in hearing others thoughts on it. In the end, the choice will be mine and I know both are fine firearms. Below are some of my reasons for considering this: 1. G26 - ammo cheaper. Yes, I know I can get a conversion barrel, but I am not really interested in doing this. 2. G26 - is lighter. I am looking for something a little more lightweight. The G26, according to Glock.com, is about 5 oz lighter (loaded). This is not insignificant. Ounces can make a difference. I am not overweight, and in good shape for my age, but I have had some minor back issues in the past. So I am looking for something lighter to hang on my waist. The weight is part of the reason I am not really looking to a conversion barrel. 3. G26 - Gen4 grip a bit smaller and I like the Gen4 texture. I am able to grip my G23 fine, but I tend to like a smaller grip. I am willing to trust the 9mm vs. .40 So help me think this through. What am I missing? And no, just buying a G26 is not really an option. I love Glock, but I have my eye on some long guns right now.
