Range report:

I have a 2.5 gen G26 and recently purchased a Glock factory G19 threaded barrel in 13.5x1LH. I've been using a P226 with my Trident 9. The P226 has a Sig factory threaded barrel in 13.5x1LH.

The point of aim is exactly the same between the factory G26 barrel and the G19 threaded barrel. With the Trident 9 attached, same POI. No problems at all, and sounded the same as the P226. There's about a 1/4 inch or less difference between the threaded barrel lenths of the two pistols.

I wanted to post my results because i've never seen any other reports of this combination used. I LOVE the G26 and it feels very balanced and comfortable with the Trident attached. It tames the recoil and makes it feel just like a larger pistol. The longer G19 barrel with thread protector (Sig factory protector) looks fine and is still smaller than a Glock 19. I think it's also going to be much more reliable than with a shorter threaded G26 barrel.

The only drawback is for people who can't shoot without all of their fingers on the grip. I have no problem shooting with only two fingers, but if that is a problem, go with a 19.

I got talked into that setup by Mike@tornado. Still haven't sent it off for work. College is taking away my firearms play time.

I took the easy way and just got a barrel that was factory threaded. Here's what the set-up looks like anyway.

Ha, I have all of this to try at home!

In the past I've not had good luck with cyclic reliability on the G26. I'll be interested in trying out my factory barrel with the Trident

Well I did it. And what wgsig wrote is spot on.

I fired a box of 50 through it and already this is hands down the most accuracy I've ever gotten out of a suppressed glock. Not that accuracy in the past has been bad, just that this grouped noticeably better.

Another great feat was the fact that this is the first time I've ever gotten any reliability out of the G26 suppressed. I had one first round stove pipe and then the other 49 ran as perfect as could be expected. I don't know if it's the fact I'm running a factory Glock barrel as opposed to the LWC in the past or the fact it's a longer G19 threaded barrel but whatever it is. It's a great combination.

A long nosed G26/19 hybrid for suppressed use.

Good call wgsig!

Glad I was able to give you the kick in the pants to get that gear on the range!

I think your success was the result of the longer barrel. It seems that that reliability with a sub 4" barrel is a rare thing.

The suppressed G26 is just plain fun!!

Oh yeah. It was a blast. And I have to admit the grouping I got sighting through the can with a set of Heinie Ledges was very impressive to me. I ran that group at a nominal 10 yards but it showed a lot of promise. It's the first time I've ever gotten a 26 to perform like a 19.

Wouldn't that be awkwardly long without the suppressor attached? I mean for concealed carry and such. Can we get a pic w/o the suppressor?

This thread is awesome. I've been having cycling problems with my G26 and Eco-9. I wondered what was up. I don't know why I never thought of putting a factory g19 barrel in one!

Here's what the G26 looks like naked with only the G19 threaded barrel...

And I recently purchased a G19 as my primary suppressor host. It has EXCELLENT balance.

My G19 and suppressor.

The Glock 19, for my purposes, was the best all around size and fit. I can easily conceal it (without the can), and it still fits well in my hand. With the 9 ounce suppressor, it's not front heavy at all.

In South Carolina, if you are carrying a concealed weapon, it has to be under 12 inches on overall length, so my Glock and suppressor wouldn't make the cut. Maybe a .22 pistol + suppressor would squeeze in under that length.

So what happens if you got a regular g26 threaded barrel? You think it would be a problem? I am in a debate between the 2 glocks. Of course I want the g26 but I don't want to encounter problems cause of the lengths. There are barrels out there for the g26, its just extended and threaded, unlike yours where you used a g19 barrel for a g26.

I think I'll add an addendum here: my cycling issue actually had to do with a broken slide release. It was not piston or pistol related. The G26 cycles 100% with a factory G26 barrel that I had threaded.

Ah college. I sometimes sit and dream of all the toys I could have had if I hadn't went to college. Then I wake up in my cubicle and start screaming.
