I own a 27 and it is by far my favorite carry pistol. Its comfortable to conceal, has very good knock down power(40s&w), and has good accuracy(that one guy on here was saying somthing about its not accurate beyond 20 yards, if your ever gonna have to use a CCW its most likley gonna hapen between 7 and 21 feet not 60+). If your gonna put the mag extender on you may as well just buy a 23 because the grip is gonna be the same size the only dif. is about a half inch shorter barrel. Ive shot 500 rds and never had a jam. very well balanced gun, super easy to field strip and clean. Also getting that ninth rnd in the mag is a bitch but once you do it a couple times it gets loosened up a little bit.

gds75, Welcome to the forum. I trust you were writing about my reveiw. You failed to mention that I said the SAME THING about the short range of most shootings. While this is so, long range shooting is certainly a hell of a lot more fun at the range than plugging holes into a target at 3yds. It aso takes a lot more skill, But, as I said in my previous reveiw....

I think the G27 is good for its intended purpose, as a selfdefense gun at close range. 90 percent of shootings happen at 10 feet or less and at that range the laser makes it a point and shoot weapon.

I have a multitude of pistols. I know pistols well. I know ou know how you keep hearing about fail to feed jams? Thats because Glocks feeding ramp is too steep, and if you polish it down, your going to then get a different fail to feed. Its in the design, the slide doesnt fit snug to the action. You can turn your G27 on its side and see the bullets in the feeding mech through the gap between the slide and action. All the glock hype is exactly that, hype. If your going to carry a G27, for instance, if you have already been raped for the 700 bucks this tupperware gun is not worth, I highly recommend familiarizing yourself with the slingshot fail to feed remedy, and remember to count your rounds...personally, I wouldnt want to carry this gun. Go with your next option.

Ive had my 27 right at a year now, with about 1000 rounds through it with no malfunctions. I use standard storebought ammo, target ammo and some personal defence loads, they have all fed perfectly. This is not a $700 firearm, it can be purchased most anywhere in the $525 range. Bobs Gun shop in Norfolk Virginia is an example, its where I got mine. The gun is lightweight, carrys well, fairly accurate and VERY reliable.

I took my Glock 27 .40 to the range recently. I was quite impressed w/ the accuracy for the barrel lenght. Quite a punch in such a small package is why I bought it. It covers well too. Can anyone suggest the best ammo for it 155,165,185 ?? & Brand

DTownes, I own the 23, my personal favorite ammo is Corbon 135g, but It has quite a kick so I'm not sure how it would react in the smaller 27, if you happen to like it I find the best prices at AtlanticArms. You can also check out Dakota Ammo for more info on Corbons, they have all the stats, but sell for way too much.

DTownes I just remembered, scroll down and see what 5ring recommends too, I think he may be a police officer or in that type of field so he should have some good insight. At least I think he's in that field of work.
