I'm looking at possibly getting a G29 as a "woods" gun for when I'm hiking and fishing. None of my local dealers have any in stock. After some reading, I'm worried about the grip size on the 29.

Can someone tell me how the 29 grip compares to the 27? Are the 29 grips fatter, same or slimer than the 27? I used to have a 27, that's why I'd like some comparisions on the 29 - 27 grip size.

Thanks!

The G29 grips are wider than the G27. If your dealer has a G30 around you can try it out because it has the exact same grip size as the 29.

Exactly right. As far as external dimensions go, only the mags are different between the 29 and 30.

I recently went from a 27 to a 29 as a carry piece. The 29's definitely bigger in the grip but my hands aren't all that big and I have no trouble with it at all.

Thanks for the replies!

I'm still trying to find a good Glock dealer in my area so I can fondle some different models.

Can someone tell me how the 29 grip compares to it's big brother the 20????? Are the grip sizes the same?

Oh god, I think I have the 10mm bug! HELP!

Small detail about the 29 vs the 30 is the mag floorplate. IIRC, the 29 has a flat plate, holds 10. the G30 has a thicker wedge on it, and it holds 10 that way. So, care in making a decision based only on the G30 feel. If you like G27 it should work, but the 10mm will not be a lot of fun from a diminutive glock. I would get the G20 for an outdoor gun, size is not that critical and weight will not change much, but if you need it you will be damn glad you have it.

TopGlock.com has the G20 for $484
I am mm's from buying it! BTW I did fondle a 29 and did not like the grip (too small for my tastes)
Could not imagine the challenge of the recoil and sight acquisition. I f I do it it will be the 20
for sure and I'll IWB that biotch too

Thanks for the help!

Due the 29's come with a rail, or is the rail only on the larger frame Glocks? Are the 29's that are $484 newer pistols, or are they old ones that have been sitting around for awhile?

No rail on the 29s. As for topglock's stock, you might want to drop them a line.
