No matter what it is size wise, it is new. Glock will sell thousands upon thousands of them after leaking a tiny bit of info which in turn generates all of the hype. Every Glock lover will buy one whether they need it or not.

I’m sure I’ll still buy one. Might as well just add it to the Glock Collection!

As long as Glock stays with polymer mags they have no chance of being truly competitive in the sub compact single/staggered stack game.

Depends on whether you have man hands or not.

Circus carnies get excited about the 365.

I passed up purchasing a P365 due to issues with them. With a Glock 43X coming out, i'm glad I did pass on the P365. My Glock 43 is a awesome gun...now if they can make it a 10 round gun in a small package, i'm sold and will pick one up at my local fun store.

As soon as I see one I’ll buy it, I can’t wait....

It doesn't do anything for me, but I'm glad that so many folks are excited about it. I hope Glock sells a shit ton.

not sure how small it really will be. Also, remember it will have proprietary mags as no other gun in the lineup will share mags with it. Not really a big deal, but I think something worth mentioning as people who own Glocks tend to appreciate that kind of thing.

So the 10 round mag won't fit in a current 43?
Link Posted: 12/23/2018 11:08:30 AM EDT
If it has proprietary mags it's not a big deal to me. 3 or 4 mags is plenty for a low capacity carry gun IMO.
My G19 stays as my primary carry gun.

That's correct. It is too wide to fit the magwell according to reports/specs.

I’d have to hold it first but I’d probably buy one.
Link Posted: 12/23/2018 9:10:37 PM EDT
Confused is this a thinner g19 or a slightly bigger 43? The overall size difference is pretty large between the two besides just the width

Can't tell you whether it's legit or not.

Edit: It appears it's what people have asked for -- a single stack G19. I'm actually kind of disappointed. I was hoping for a modified mag design to increase capacity. If this above link is accurate, the grip will be longer than a p365 (with the 12 round magazine) but hold two less rounds. Nevertheless, I don't trust the p365, so I'd take the G48 regardless.

Agreed. Don't need the extra weight or a slightly longer sight radius for an insignificant increase in velocity. I also kind of like a stubby gun for CCW -- it's more difficult for a BG to grab, and it'd be easier to point at the BG in an on-the-ground brawl.
Link Posted: 12/26/2018 12:49:31 PM EDT
Interesting that there are not one, but two new "single" stacks coming (allegedly).

G48 - G19 size, thinner, 10rds, new proprietary mags
G43x - G43 size with a longer barrel and grip (8rds), mags will work in G43

Is that right?

Guess we'll know for certain in a couple of weeks.

43X/48 might be Goldilocks carry pieces, or they might sit in a niche where they don't suit the needs of a short pistol nor a super thin one. To me, it's all going to come down to how they feel and shoot because the size isn't anything to write home about. If the specs Recoil posted are correct, it's more than 3/4" longer in the grip than a 26/42/43, a little wider than a 42/43, and less than 1/4" slimmer than a 19/26. A slimmed down 26 with 10+1 to directly compete with the P365 would be more significantly evolutionary than a slimmed down 19 with 10+1, but I can't wait to get my hands on a 43X to try anyways.

Would you like to fill out a hurt feelings report and let us know where the Glock touched you?

In all seriousness, everyone has been begging for single-stack Glocks and Glock put out the 43. There was gnashing of teeth because it wasn't G19 grip sized. Now there are hints that Glock is expanding the 43 sized frame guns (43x and 48) and everyone is bitching because "Glock just wants to sell pistols, regardless if people "need" them."

JFC, Glock is in the business of selling guns. Now they are doing what people were asking for, and we get "fanbois will buy anything with Glock on the side even if they don't need it."

You know what? I have lots of guns I don't "need." Should I get rid of those too, and just have a G19 and a backup G19....since I don't "need" anything more? No? Ok den.

G43X doesn’t seem to excite me.

G48 on the other hand.. do want!

A 4.17" barrel on a longer framed 43. I thought we wanted a shorter barrel on a longer frame. I'm so confused.

43x and 48 share the same exact frame as near as I can tell the only difference was the long slide on the 48. Both were the 10 rounds mags. Its possibly I'm off on width of the regular 43 as I have rarely shot them and never owned but from remembering it I'm 95% certain they are different widths so mags will not interchange.
Link Posted: 12/26/2018 5:47:45 PM EDT
I EDC a G19 with a 10 round mag appendix every day. So the 48 could be a winner for me. The 26 and 43 are not a fit for me, too short in grip length. I don't like having the meat of my palm pinched durring loading.

So if I can get my full grip on it, I'll be a buyer in about a year. After they get all of the rolling changes they do these days (front serrations, moon cutouts and flared magwells) behind them.

The extra barrel length adds a lot of comfort when carrying appendix, it keeps the pistol from wanting to roll out over the top of your belt.

I rotate my CCW between a G43, G26 and a G30. I’ll buy the G43X in a heart beat even when it means investing in holsters and mags all over again.

I'll pass, I already pull the pinky extensions off of the 43 mags to prevent printing.

The grip is the biggest printing factor when carrying, not sure how people can ccw a 19 without printing like crazy and I'm not a small dude.

I disagree.

I have carried revolvers, 1911s, full size double stack pistols, and haven't really had a problem with printing.

Good belt, good holster. right clothes and it is no problem.

The half inch longer on the 43x with more ammo capacity will be great.

From a design standpoint, Kahrs are perfection when it comes to single stack / CCW pistols.

They are smaller, thinner, and lighter then anything else on the market in 9x19.

The big problem is their QC and poor magazines, and just lack of "Glock" reliability.

Hence my desire for an Austrian Kahr ST9.

Well there is literally no room for more innovation in the G26/G19/G17/G19X/G34/G17L mag lineup (nearly any desirable combo of slide & grip length can be had or made).

If you want a G43 with 8 rounds and a longer slide (the true Single stack 19) take a 48 slide put on a 43 frame and use +2 baseplates (or keep the 6 rounders for a single stack 43L longslide)*. So that about wraps up all reasonable needs in the single stack dept

Im assuming G43/G43X/G48 slides are all interchangeable given:
1) dims published
2) "X" means same slide. G19 slides fit on G19X
3) 48 uses the 43X frame
