- 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.

Glock G26 Variations & Comparables
Overall a reliable and dependable CCW gun for a reasonable price. It’s certainly a step up from the G2C and usually only costs $30 more. Well worth the update! This firearm seems to be just as reliable — and possible even more reliable — than the G2C, which is a critical element if you plan on using this gun for self-defense or home defense. Taurus is providing reliable personal protection to a lot of folks who may be on a budget. Their G3C is a solid and cost-effective offering in a fairly saturated market.
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.
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.
