Glock 26 Gen 3 in black. The Austrians have successfully engineered the Glock 26 Gen3 to overcome the common design constraints when dealing with a small concealable pistol. Handguns specifically designed for concealed carry are always a series of tradeoffs. Magazine capacity and caliber are the first issues followed by recoil as the firearms tend to be small and light.
Perfect Trigger Placement:
Trigger pull is also often an issue. The Glock G26 Gen3 is similar in size and weight to the small-frame snub-nose revolvers it has replaced. It fires a 9 x 19mm cartridge with surprisingly minimal recoil. This is due to the Glock 26 Gen 3 progressive rate recoil spring. Trigger pull is identical to that of the full frame models and it is small enough to slip into a pocket or a purse.
Ideal as a backup for those who use the Glock 17 or 19 as carry guns as the larger 9mm magazines fit the G26. In fact, raise some eyebrows next time you are on the range and use a 33 round “Happy Stick” in your G 26 Gen 3.
Glock 26 Gen 3
In summary, the Glock 26 Gen3 is a perfect high capacity concealed carry gun, chambered in a man-stopping caliber. Furthermore, it weighs only a few ounces, is small enough to conceal easily, but still has a large enough grip to enable a firm hold. The G26 meets this requirement admirably. PLEASE NOTE Gen3 G26 ships with 2 off 10 round mags.
Glock 26 Gen 3 Recoil Spring
The Glock G26 Gen 3 has a dual recoil-spring system that features a progressive spring rate reducing recoil. The G26 recoil spring is identical to the Gen4. All other Gen 3 Glock have the single recoil spring except for G26. The Gen3 Glock 26 shoots very almost identically in either Gen3 Gen 4 or Gen5 variations. Therefore the Gen3 model which is way cheaper is probably the best value for money of any Glock you can buy.
