    After all these years Lenny my friend; you are still armed and dangerous with your arms! Keep lifting. 🙂

    Do they make them in tan getting a tan 26 for my birthday

  3. Just another red shirt on May 26, 2023 at 4:36 am

    No instead I spent $80 on a TTI +5 extension😂

  4. KyPatriot on May 26, 2023 at 4:36 am

    I would love to add a Glock 26 to my collection but the flush fit magazine always pinches my pinkie and ring finger due to recoil. Do you think a Glock 19 magazine with the X-grip would remedy that? Thank you!

  5. San Diego Classic Car Center on May 26, 2023 at 4:37 am

    Nice! Love the extension for the Glock 43!

  6. Lorenzo Garcia on May 26, 2023 at 4:37 am

    I don’t get it why extend the magazine when you spent the money for a small gun? Why waste time with a gun that has next to no grip? I’m not trying to be a jerk I have asked people about this and no one as a good answer

  7. Whiskey One on May 26, 2023 at 4:40 am

    Not sure why you buy a G26, G19 magazine, and an X-Grip when you could have just bought a G19 to start with?

  8. k evin on May 26, 2023 at 4:40 am

    why not just get a plus 2 grip extension like strike industries makes so u atleast get more rounds in the same footprint

  9. Chris S on May 26, 2023 at 4:41 am

    26 gen 5, how it comes from the box. G19 backup, fits fine as is

  11. Jay876 on May 26, 2023 at 4:42 am

    Answer= buy a staccato

  13. furyofbongos on May 26, 2023 at 4:44 am

    I wonder why they don’t make ones that fit earlier generations? There are far more of them out there. Is it because they want you to buy Gen 5 magazines from them also?

  14. Reinier Garcia on May 26, 2023 at 4:44 am

    Easy. Get a Glock 43X. The Glock 43X is by far the best EDC handgun ever made.

  15. Barry Dick on May 26, 2023 at 4:46 am

    Love the xgrip for my g30!

  16. Excalibur on May 26, 2023 at 4:46 am

    I sometimes carry a G19 and my spare mag is a G17 mag with the +2 extension. I don’t use the X-grip for the sole reason of pinching my hand. Even though a G19 pretty much gives me a full grip in my hand, I have on occasion felt a bit of an overflow on the bottom a bit and since the X grip is meant to fill in the space, it can pinch me if I am not thinking about it. For a G26, you can practice with sticking a longer mag and work with the less than optimal grip because you already are most likely carrying the G26 with a pinky extension on it. I don’t understand people who carry their G26 with the grip extension mag. It defeats the purpose of the design, a small compact gun that is concealable. Adding extra length on the grip takes away the purpose and at the point, you should get a larger gun if you plan on carrying it like that

    Thank you for the awesome video I like the glock 26 and the glock 43 I own an all black glock 43x with rubber texture talon grips and ameriglo Spartan night sights I love it

  18. r wally on May 26, 2023 at 4:47 am

    These also help the feeding. If you put a 19/17 mag in a 26 and really grip tight you can cause nose dives during cycling without the xgrip(there’s other sleeves… But they suck)

  19. gerald cue on May 26, 2023 at 4:48 am

    Thats not a big issue since i retired from d police service 8 years ago my EDC buddy s d G26 gen 4 top up with d ten round magazine plus 3 or d G19 mag plus 3 awesome fire power dats it i can’t ask 4 more guys

  20. DH1776 on May 26, 2023 at 4:50 am

    Where can I get an x grip

  21. John Roper on May 26, 2023 at 4:52 am

    I put Pearce Grip PG-26 Magazine Grip Extentions on my Gen 4 Glock 26 mags. Then I saw these. I see em’ as an option, but I like practicing fast reloads. Nice option, though. Semper Fi.

  22. Lance English on May 26, 2023 at 4:55 am

    just dropped the 26 for the 43x, even with the after market extended mags, its still just too fat for short fingers, loving the 43x

  23. Ste ve Bracewell on May 26, 2023 at 4:57 am

    Bought a model 26 gen3,about 4weeks ago, and after 200rounds,have no trouble shooting mine with the 10round mag,

  24. Raymond Sanchez on May 26, 2023 at 5:00 am


  25. Toren Calduris on May 26, 2023 at 5:00 am

    You could set my 26 on fire and toss it up a tree and I still wouldn’t trade it for a 43

  26. Nivram on May 26, 2023 at 5:03 am

    Get a 19 since the grip works out to almost the same thing

  27. I started a joke !!!!! on May 26, 2023 at 5:03 am

    If you focus on gripping the xgrip hard than you will move the mag while firing and cause malfuntions..I have a xgrip 17 on my glock 26 but the best thing to do is focus as if you only had the flush mag in.than you will have no problems

  28. Mr. Mann on May 26, 2023 at 5:03 am

    I carry a g17 everywhere I go. No problems there. 😂

  29. Ryan Rodriguez on May 26, 2023 at 5:04 am

    I carry both lol use my 19 as home defense now

  30. GlockStore on May 26, 2023 at 5:05 am

    Do you still carry a Glock 26 or 43?? Let me Know! 👇🏼

  31. Ted P on May 26, 2023 at 5:06 am

  32. Dlexx 21 on May 26, 2023 at 5:10 am

    I have the 43, also have sn XGrip with an ets mag. Just wish you guys offered oem extended magazines for the 43. I understand they are meant for maximum concealment but even an 8 rounder would be sufficient

  33. DH1776 on May 26, 2023 at 5:11 am

    I have a 26 and 43 love both but like the 26 better

  34. John Johnson on May 26, 2023 at 5:12 am


  35. Devon Reclaimed on May 26, 2023 at 5:14 am

    A Glock 26X would be sweet I made my P80 subcompact into one with the Xgrip

  36. Anthony Puca on May 26, 2023 at 5:16 am

    Cheap defective parts sold with 30 day only return policy. Glockstore would not replace or return my defective spring for my Glock 43. Said it took me too long to test it. Good luck with their low quality accessories and parts. I expected more quality and support from them; especially on an $80 defective part.

  37. RotoMotoR on May 26, 2023 at 5:18 am

    i carry a whistle

  38. Roger Crouch on May 26, 2023 at 5:19 am

    Love the x-grip !

  39. No_Luv_City_BOS_Mafia on May 26, 2023 at 5:20 am

    Does the X-Grip pinch your hand while shooting?

  40. abel fierro on May 26, 2023 at 5:23 am

    Just tried/tested one on my G26 and I’m going to purchase another one. I love it!!!

    I’ll also going to purchase two extra G19 magazines for them.

  41. Ted P on May 26, 2023 at 5:26 am

    For the love of God Lenny can we see a gen 5 g26x? I love my gen 4 with xgrips but reloads are harder with the xgrips.

  42. Ball Sack on May 26, 2023 at 5:26 am

    I have it for my g19 with the 17 round mags. Turns it into a g45

  43. Chris B on May 26, 2023 at 5:26 am

    Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of concealing better/deeper than a 19 or 320? Making the height of the frame same as a 19

  44. IronVoice on May 26, 2023 at 5:29 am

    The X-grip allows you to make your G26 the G19 that you should have purchased in the first place. Lol

    It is insane how people buy nano-micro guns just to add all kinds of aftermarket stuff that make sometimes that gun bigger than compact size guns.

  45. mtharri on May 26, 2023 at 5:29 am

    How to grip a Glock, grab a Hellcat instead.

  46. Excalibur on May 26, 2023 at 5:29 am

    I carry a G48 and that accomplishes what you’re trying to do with the G43 with the X grip and ets mag. Or even the G43X. If you bought the G43 for the purpose of being a micro carry, then you carry it the way it is intended. Trying to change it’s design purpose by making it larger, then get a larger gun

  47. S G on May 26, 2023 at 5:30 am

    someone explain to me how this doesn’t essentially turn your 26 into a 19?

  48. Tommy G on May 26, 2023 at 5:31 am

    Just get a glock 19… your welcome!

  49. kaljr82 on May 26, 2023 at 5:32 am

    Why buy such a short gripped firearm if you’re just going to add to it. Why not buy a 43x and get a great grip already.

  50. AntwonDaBusiness on May 26, 2023 at 5:32 am

    Just buy a Glock 19 haha
