Buy Glock 26 Gen 3
GLOCK G 26 Semi-Auto Pistol
The Gen 3 Glock 26 added the now infamous finger grooves to their pistols for added grip and control during the operation of the gun. The Gen 3 also added the Universal Glock Rail to the dust cover of the pistol frame to add attachments, such as after-market sights, lasers, and lights.
Gen 3 was the first model to add thumb rests on each side of the pistol grip to give us lefties some added comfort (I didn’t like it at all). One of the best features of the Gen 3 was the extractor being raised up from the frame when the gun is loaded. This gives the Gen models an added safety feature because it acts as a loaded chamber indicator that is easy to see. Finally, a cross pin was added to the trigger guard pin to help reduce felt recoil in the barrel.

Why Should I Buy The Glock 26 Gen 3?
Where Can I Buy a Glock 26 Gen 3?
As with any Glock, you could start with buying directly from their website, but if you want the best deal on a Gen 3, I’d go with Glock Center Personally,
Glock 26 Gen 3 in black. We DO have extremely limited stock so please put in a mail or a call to double-check before you order. The Austrians have successfully engineered the Glock 26 Gen3 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 caliber 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 Gen3 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 Glock 26 Gen 3 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 carrying guns as the larger 9mm magazines fit the G26. In fact, raise some eyebrows next time you are on the range and use a 33 round “Happy Stick” in your G 26 Gen 3.
Glock 26 Gen 3
In summary, the Glock 26 Gen3 is a perfect high-capacity concealed carry gun, chambered in a man-stopping caliber. Furthermore, it weighs only a few ounces, is small enough to conceal easily, but still has a large enough grip to enable a firm hold. The G26 meets this requirement admirably. PLEASE NOTE Gen3 G26 ships with 2 of 10 round mags.
Glock 26 Gen 3 Recoil Spring
The Glock G26 Gen 3 has a dual recoil spring system that features a progressive spring rate reducing recoil. The G26 recoil spring is identical to the Gen4. All other Gen 3 Glock have the single recoil spring except for G26. The Gen3 Glock 26 shoots very almost identically in either Gen3 Gen 4 or Gen5 variations. Therefore the Gen3 model which is way cheaper is probably the best value for money of any Glock you can buy.

The Glock 26 is a great firearm for self-defense.
This polymer, subcompact, semi-automatic handgun is also extremely popular with gun owners because it offers a better magazine capacity in 9x19mm than many other small firearms like a snub nose revolver.
The GLOCK® G26 is a subcompact semi-auto pistol designed specifically for concealed carry use. Made with the same materials and quality control as all GLOCK semi-automatic pistols, the G26 is a carry gun you can count on at the moment of truth.
Internally, the GLOCK 26 employs the same striker, short-recoil operated, and locked-breech barrel as the larger framed GLOCK pistols; though it uses a dual recoil spring assembly similar to the Gen4 pistols. The Safe-Action trigger system makes shooting in high-stressed situations infallible.
The mainframe of the GLOCK pistol is constructed of high-strength polymer that is resistant to shock, caustic liquids, and temperature extremes. The milled steel slide and the barrel are treated with a matte black Tenifer finish for extreme resistance to wear and corrosion. The Tenifer treated steel and polymer frame make the pistol impervious to corrosion caused by perspiration and humidity when carried close to the body or kept in a holster for extended periods of time.
The frame has checkering on the front and back straps, providing a non-slip surface; finger grooves on the front strap, and a finger rest on the front of the trigger guard aid in fire control. The slide cycles on 4 hardened steel guide rails within the frame. A white-dot front sight and a white-bracket rear sight provide rapid acquisition in dim lighting situations.
All GLOCK pistols fieldstrip easily without the use of tools. The GLOCK G26 Semi-Auto Pistol is a reliable, easy-to-maintain firearm that’s perfect for everyday carry, or a backup for security personnel. The G26 comes with 2 double-stack 10-round magazines, and also functions with G17 and G19 mags.
