HISTORY



Detailing the development and operational history of the Glock 26 Semi-Automatic Pistol.  Entry last updated on 5/22/2018. Authored by Staff Writer. Content ©www.MilitaryFactory.com.
The Glock 26 was designed with the thought of creating a Glock handgun that was easily concealable and chambered to fire the popular 9x19mm Parabellum cartridge. The end-product was small enough to fit in the palm of the average male hand and proved easy enough for security personnel to carry it in non-traditional places. The Glock 26 was introduced in 1996 and followed along the same design lines of other Glock systems before it. The most defining characteristic of the Glock 26, however, would be its stubby pistol grip and shortened slide - both playing well into the handgun's inherent strengths.

Traditionally, smallish 9mm handguns in this class were reserved for limited 5-round magazine capacities. The Glock 26 broke the mold by allowing for double that capacity while still retaining the excellent and highly-respected qualities of larger Glocks with the stopping power and portability of the 9mm Parabellum cartridge. The small overall size of the weapon itself along with its applicable cartridge proved to make for one exceptionally accurate system furthermore making it a popular choice for security personnel the world over.

Overall length was 160mm (6.29 inches) with a barrel length of 106mm (4.17 inches). Width was just 1.18 inches. Unloaded weight was 19.75 ounces with a loaded weight of 26.10 ounces. Along with the base 10-round capacity magazine, other counts made available to the Glock 26 included a 12-, 15-, 17-, 19- and 33-round magazine, undoubtedly increasing the value of this little pistol.

The Glock 27 and Glock 28 were similar in fashion to the Glock 26 except chambered to fire the .40 S&W and .380 ACP cartridges respectively.

The Glock 26 is also known as the "Baby Glock".
