Sup...I am tossin around the idea of getting my FIRST glock. I am very partial to HK and SIG but, i have gotten interested in glocks lately. I am favoring the glock model 27. Wich, as you know is the sub compact model. I am curious about the mag extension. Do the mags that come with the gun have extensions on them? I have seen several after market extensions that were availible for that magazine. I kinda like the +1 extension made by scherer (in natchez catalog), for the model 27 wich ups the mag capacity to 10 rounds. Are these good extensions?
I guess i need general info and pointers from yall glock experts.
And another reason i am lookin at glock is ALL the excessories that are availible for them. By the way, the magazines are cheap too!
Before I bought my G23, I looked at the G27 too and they're both for CCW. If you go with the G27 w/o the mag extension, it's conceal better than the G23 but if you go with the mag extension, they're just about the same side and that was the reason why I got the G23(10 rnds), it's all down to personal choices and what are you use it for, I'm happy with my G23 and have no problem to conceal it.
If I were going to do it over again, I would get a compensated model, and an additional non-compensated barrel. You can use either barrel with the compensated slide.
There are reasons to use non-compensated, but the compensated greatly reduces the recoil.
I also have a Glock 23. I found a 13 rnd magazine and added a +2 base. I use that mag for the glove box. When concealed carry I use one of my 4 10 rnd mags with a spare, usually the 13 rnd, in my pocket. It fits into my bike bag with the 10 rnd mag. very nicely.
