Glock 27: This Might Be the Glock Gun You Don’t Like

Earlier this week, our editor asked me which Glock pistols I hadn’t reviewed yet. I replied something along the lines of, “Well, let’s see, there’s the Glock 30S .45 ACP, the Glock 27 .40 cal, and the Glock 19X 9mm.” Naturally, she asked me to review them all. As our longtime readers have realized, I’m quite the Glock fanboy, so I was only too happy to oblige.

I am not, however, a big fan of the .40 S&W cartridge, although I do acknowledge its effectiveness. I carried two different pistols in the caliber during my law enforcement days, but I never had a burning desire to personally own a .40. After firing the Glock 27, I have even less enthusiasm for the cartridge.

Glock 27 Early History and Specifications The Glock 27 .40 S&W debuted in 1995 along with the 9mm Glock 26 — the first two pistols in the subcompact baby Glock series. The latest iteration is the Gen5 G27.

As the manufacturer’s official info page states: “Amazingly accurate and controllable, the GLOCK 27 puts 10 rounds of 40 S&W caliber at your fingertips in a package small enough for a pocket or ankle holster.”

Barrel length is 3.43 inches, overall length is 6.50 inches, height is 4.17 inches, empty weight is 19.40 ounces, and fully-loaded weight is 26.46 oz.

On to what should have been the fun part: the live-fire session. To fulfill this portion, I was off yet again to the top-notch Silver Eagle Group indoor shooting facility in Ashburn, Virginia, to take advantage of SEG’s rental Gen3 Glock 27.

When I lived in Chicago in late 70s, I was making cosmetics deliveries for this woman in the old neighborhood. She had this purple fluid that would take the kinks out of black's hair. I would deliver it by the gallon to beauty shops on south side. She told me, "Don't take any checks from those people." I collected CASH. By the time I had finished I had $500 to $800 on me, I ALWAYS carried a pistol, and I stayed off the side streets.

The guy must be a snowflake, I have no problem whatsoever with my Glock 27. It's what I carry.
