My Glock 26L (or 17 after Mr Bandsaw)

Well, today I took the plunge. Got so excited I forgot to take as many pics as I had hoped to. Still have a little finish work to do, but I had bought a 26 mag (with the Glock +2 already installed) and he accidentally gave me a 27 mag. Had to cut out early and switch that around.

Used some punches and aligned my 17 with a 26 and traced the lines out. Ran it through the band saw and finished up with a drimel tool, bastard file, and some sand paper (and a combination of sand paper using the bastard file as a backing)

So far, it is success.


The advantages is that I now carry a full 5" barrel as an everyday CCW. I get the full 5" ballistical (just made that one up :jester:) advantage, full 5" sight radius, and the mass of a 5" slide to ease recoil. And with a readily available spacer made to let a Glock 26 seamlessly accept Glock 17 mags, I still have a full sized gun when I need one.
Unless life also hands you water and sugar, your lemonade is gonna suck!
