- Subcompact, great for carry
- Interchangeable backstraps
- Glock aftermarket support is fantastic
- Might be too small for some hands
Like other Glock products, the G26 — affectionately called the “Baby Glock” — is designed to be just as durable and accurate as its predecessors. It comes with a 10-round magazine, so you don’t get as much firepower as you would with bigger 9mm Glocks, but its small size makes it great for concealed carry or as a backup gun.
The Glock 26 is a subcompact 9mm option in the Glock lineup. Measuring 6.50 inches in total length, it offers a 3.43-inch barrel. It tips the scale at 25.75 with a loaded mag. Ergonomically it feels like a Glock with all that you’ve come to expect from the brand.

“Swinging for the fences at $392 MSRP, the 9mm Taurus is designed specifically for those that want to concealed carry but also don’t need a tricked-out Gucci Glock to do it. Ergonomically, it’s okay. It feels good in the hand, but its diminutive size is both a good and bad thing. As far as controls are concerned, everything is more or less where you expect it – all within reach and easy to manipulate. The magazine release might be a tad too shallow for my liking, but it’s billed as a carry gun, and carry guns typically carry smaller controls. Also, the grip is short…our bigger-handed reviewers had to adjust their grip not to blow their fingers off…So watch out for that.” – Johnny B.
If you’re committed to the Glock brand, but don’t want the G43 or G43x for whatever reason, the Glock 26 presents another option. Chambered in 9mm, it’s a bare bones polymer pistol built on the reliable Glock platform. As a backup gun or CCW option, it excels — although, it might too small for some.
