New Glock 48
« on: January 24, 2019, 09:14:18 PM »
I love my Glock 43. I was anxious to hear about & check out the New Glock 43X ( 10+1 ). Went to my favorite Gun Shoppe today because they told me their 1st shipment of 43Xs came in. It is a beauty of a gun...and then a damn red head walked by (personal joke )...a New Glock 48. Identical to a 43X except it is one of Glock's new Slimline guns. Also a 10+1, but with a longer grip. It fit my hand perfectly w/o any mag extension. Bought it, will shoot it this weekend. I'm told that it is less snappy than my Sig P365 & also my Glock 43. I'll let you know.

Having a gun in your hand is much more effective than having the entire police department on the phone!

The 43X and 48 share the same grip frame.  The 48 slide/barrel is actually slightly longer than a 19.  A Glock rep told me this has something to do with Canadian import regulations.

The 48 is an interesting gun.
