Well I finally got a chance to shoot my new 26. Here's what I thought. Trigger takes a lot of getting used but when you get used to it its really nice. Gun was very accurate and all my shots were grouped for the most part just off to the right and high or slightly low. So basically even if all my shots were off target they were still grouped together. Overall recoil was not bad at all and I'm happy with it. I'd compare it to the recoil of my 24/7. Grip was comfy to hold yet the grooves were sharp for some hands(my girlfriends), but shes managed recoil with ease. Overall I'm really happy with it. The pistol feels and shoots with quality but it is what I'd call an acquired taste. So yes I would recomend it, but give the disclaimer saying that you gotta spend some time with it and that theres a little too many die hard glockers out there who'll bash anyone other than glock :???:. We all know at least one. I can't wait to have a few thousand threw it so I can actually say more than my aim was ok.
