Designed to give the shooter the same firepower and accuracy as its full sized kin, but in a concealable size, the Glock 27 handgun is among the manufacturer’s most concealable pistols chambered in .40 S&W. Even on its fourth generation, the Glock 27 has all the world-renowned features of its brothers, with unmatched safety and lacking nothing in stopping power. This sub-compact is perfect for personal defense in our Glock 27 concealed carry holsters.
When it comes to safety, the Glock 27 uses Glock’s Safe Action trigger system, just like the G22 and G23 and others. This three-part system involves a trigger safety, a striker block, and a separate mechanism in the striker itself which is kept only partially cocked, until the trigger is pulled by the user. There is no other external safety. This Safe Action system was designed to prevent accidental discharge.
Reviewers rave about how accurate this pistol is—regardless of its size. With an almost 1-inch wide grip (and nice finger groves on the front strap) this pistol lends itself to a smaller grip, rather than the 1.5+ inch grips on its full-sized brethren. Chambered in .40 S&W, reviewers comment on how mild the felt recoil and how controllable this pistol truly is.
Glock 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.” And with dimensions like these, it’s hard to argue. Overall the Glock 27 is 6.49 inches tall, 6.5 inches long, and 1.26 inches wide. This means that in the perfect Glock 27 IWB concealed carry holster, or even in a secure pocket holster, this pistol will completely disappear on nearly every frame.
