Default Size comparison: P7M8 vs Glock 26

Could someone take some pictures and show me the size differences between a HK P7M8 and a Glock 26? I am sure many people here have both guns. Thanks.

No pictures, but I can tell you that the P7M8 is .87'' higher, .44'' longer, .04" narrower and 10oz heavier unloaded than the Glock 26.

I can also tell you that I own 2 P7M8's (along with a .22lr conversion unit), and don't regret it in the least. One of my all-time favorite pistols, built out of real steel, gas (not recoil) operated, extremely accurate, low recoil, very ergonomic (room for all your fingers on the grip) uniquely engineered (squeeze the cocker to release slide on a loaded magazine and cock the pistol, and ambidextrious mag release).

Also out of production and very expensive. If you can afford a P7M8 get it because they probably aren't going to get any cheaper. It's a pistol you can build your collection around.

Thanks, I was hoping it was thinner then a Glock.

P7 is taller and slimmer than G26.

I know because I owned a P7M8 and a G27 (same size as G26). In one of those cheap Nylon IWB holsters for Glock 26/27, the G26 fit tightly, but the P7 felt loose that I had to tighten the belt a little bit to carry the P7.

.04" is barely noticeable.

Not a Glock, but I made a P7M8 vs. 1911 Commander collage:

I don't like that they get so hot after a while though.
Other than that they are great pistols.

Here are some measurements of the P7M8 widths and a comparison to the closest thing I have to a G26.

The .22 conversion is actually part of a P7K3 I have also, sorry for the misleading comment, I can convert between .22lr and .380 (9mmK) It's actually a seperate pistol. Unfortunately K3's arent on the approved list and the price on them has skyrocketed. I think the same thing will eventually happen to P7M8's when they drop off the approved list in September of this year.
