Glock 26 Gen 4 -the Austrians have successfully engineered the Glock 26 Gen4 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 calibre 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 Gen4 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 Gen4 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.
As a Gen 4 it of course comes with the modular back strap system that allows it to comfortably fit any hand size. The reversible mag release is ideal for left handed shooters.
In summary the Glock 26 Gen4 is a perfect high capacity concealed carry gun, chambered in a man-stopping caliber, weighs only a few ounces, is small enough to conceal easily, but still has a large enough grip to enable a firm hold. The 26 meets this requirements admirably.
