I'm not sure which gen you have; but I recently picked up a G27 Gen4 with the replaceable back straps.

1. No back strap, Short frame
2. Medium 2mm back strap, Standard frame (equivalent to the size of a Gen3)
3. Large 4mm back strap

I don't have the largest hands in the world either, but I like my grip on the short frame.

Although I've heard some murmoring of ejection problems on the Gen4s. Hasn't happened to me yet (knock on wood), but I also haven't put a lot of rounds through it.

And for the other pistol notes:

XD - Very nice, great trigger, fun to shoot.
