About Glock 27

Glock Ges.m.b.H., trademarked as Glock is one of the most famous and successful firearm producer, well known all over the world.  Engineer Gaston Glock, company's founder who had no experience with firearms manufacture or design, became one of the most successful firearms designer of all times. Glock had extensive experience in advanced synthetic polymers, knowledge of which was very important in the company's design of the first commercially successful line of polymer frame pistols.


The Glock 27 is a short recoil–operated, striker fired, locked-breech, semi-automatic pistol that uses a modified version of the Browning cam-lock system. The G27 is  manufactured by the renowned Glock Ges.m.b.H. company from Austria. The pistol was introduced in 2018 and since then it managed to rise to one of the top choices in the gun world, thanks to a combination of its key characteristics. Those being great reliability, allround shooting characteristics and very reasonable price to value ratio.

What makes the Glock 27 stand out in the line of other Glocks is its compact size in combination with a larger caliber. The Glock 27 is just 6.5” long, 1.26” wide, 4.17” tall and weighing 21.34oz when unloaded and 26.46oz when loaded. Making it one of the most compact Glocks and even other pistols in general. But even though it is so compact, it is still able to carry 9+1 rounds of .40 S&W caliber rounds. Which is even of itself rather unusual to combine compactness and caliber of this size. You can also get the optional, 10, 13, 14, 15, 16 and even a 22 round magazine. However, at that point it stops being anything close to reasonable and you simply do not need 22 .40 S&W caliber rounds on hand. Due to the larger caliber, you should be fine with the standard 9 round magazine to maintain its concealability.

Construction wise, the G27 features a polymer frame and a steel slide, offering a lightweight yet very solid construction and durability, even under harsh conditions. The slide even features serration to help with chambering and giving you a firm grip on the slide. The polymer material contributes to the pistol's resistance to corrosion and provides enhanced durability, ensuring long-lasting performance while making the Glock 27 lighter. Glock 27 comes equipped with Glock's Safe Action System, resulting in a consistent and reliable trigger pull. The trigger system ensures a crisp and predictable break, aiding in accuracy and overall shot placement of its .40 S&W caliber rounds. The pistol's sights are designed for rapid target acquisition. With Glock's standard white dot front sight and white outline rear sight, shooters can quickly align their sights and engage their targets effectively. G27 can also mount accessories such as lights, lasers as well as red dots when you install a mounting rail or plate. However, if you do this, do not forget that you need an appropriate red dot bearing holster. If you plan on getting yourself a light, laser or red dot, go and check out TOP 6 Glock 27 Red Dots and Best Glock 27 lights and Lasers. 

Thanks to its compact size, lightweight and powerful caliber, the Glock 27 is a highly recommended choice for both everyday concealed carry and professional service use. But to get the most out of your Glock 27 don't forget that you also need to combine it with a quality and well designed holster. If you intend to carry concealed, go and have a look at or selection of our Glock 27 IWB Holsters or Ankle Holsters and pick yourself one of the best holsters out there. Like this IWB Glock 27 Holster With Clip. Or if you prefer open carry, we also have you covered with our wide selection of Glock 27 OWB holsters. Such as this Open Top Glock 27 Holster.

What makes a great Shoulder Glock 27 Holster?

A well made, custom  Glock 27 Shoulder holster will hold your firearm even if it doesn’t come with a safety strap. The glove-like fit and high natural retention are a result of your new Glock 27 holster being molded on the exact replica of your pistol. Thanks to the way your new holster is made, your handgun will not fall out of the holster even if you decide to carry your rig upside down (although we advise you not to carry this way). However, if you want to get as much retention as possible, feel free to choose from our selection of Glock 27 Shoulder holsters equipped with a thumb-break strap.
On the other hand, a perfect fit isn’t the only thing a great holster should deliver. A great Glock 27 Shoulder holster should also come with smooth edges and meticulous stitching. Such features help to protect the holster from abrasion, scratches, wear as well as prevent it from taking any damage should it come in contact with rough surfaces. A great Glock 27 Shoulder holster also comes with a perfect finish, which keeps it protected from dust and moisture. However, in order to ensure longevity and perfect condition of even the best holster, you should regularly take care of your Glock 27 Shoulder holster through proper holster maintenance.
