Are you going to be happy WHEN (not if) your P365 breaks down?
Woops, sorry, got lost and thought I strayed into tech. My bad! Dunno, I’m well past the 4 digit round count on mine and it works fine. Eventually something probably will break. So you’re right, it is a “WHEN (not if)”. Parts breakage happens to every gun eventually. That’s what happens when you actually shoot your guns.

Back on subject: This would be a great thing for the 43X/48, and I don’t doubt there’s a ton of room in their magwell. I’ve been very happy with my most recent 19, and this essentially gives one a 19 with a free .25” of thickness. That’s a pretty big deal. I don’t know that this would replace my 19, at least until there’s a thinner RMR or the RMS better proves itself, but I’d definitely pick one up, and I’d definitely find a way to carry it.

There’s the problem of lights. Currently there’s the TLR6. But I’d just as soon try one of those Deadpoint lights. There’s not much info out on them, but they look neat. They replace the guide rod, which means not only do they not need a rail, but they work with regular holsters and take up zero extra space. I’ve been itching to try one out, and they already make one for the 43 that (presumably) would work with the 43X.

Is an extra 5 rounds worth another $18? I only paid $22 for my spare factory mags from AIM...

I mean, I’ll probably buy one, but still.

No, it isn't.   I'd wait on the guy figuring out $20 CZ75 compact mags working in the 48 frame.

The other argument is going with mags designed to work with the gun versus mags that happen to work once modified.

I probably shouldn't admit this, but IF these are as good as OEM mags with regards to reliability, I'd pay $80-$100 for them. But I grew up on 19s, and 15+1rds just feels right (compared to 6 or 8 or 11).

Is there any sort of release date estimation? I don’t see anything on their site or the net. Part of me wants them out now, but part of me wants them to take a bit so they can come out with a 43X in all black.

On Instagram they said they're trying to get them out by summer.  So I'd expect first quarter 2020 and be pleasantly surprised if they release them before then.

meanwhile you can just use a G19 if you can "tolerate" the .10" extra thickness

Depending on hand size and body type, that .10" can be a meaningful difference.  I've carried a G19 for the last 10 years and I have to roll my grip to hit the magazine release with authority.  Most people shooting next to me wouldn't notice it, but it is a compromise.  The G43 was too small for my hand, the 43X/48 is just perfect.

It's great that we're all different and we have options for just about everyone now.

Why would you wait on me? CZ75 compact mags extend out past the 48 frame and only hold 14 rounds. I would rather take a somewhat factory spec 15rnd flush fit mag over a jerry rigged CZ 75 compact mag.

It's not the width, it's the weight of the gun (for me at least). Having sciatica really affects the weight I can carry on my right side hip. Not a real fan of AIWB carry, so right hand hip it is. Adding more weight to a gun no matter how "lightweight" is never a good thing. Metal mags and extra rounds is going to add up to a significant weight gain for me. I think I'll stick with the 10 rounders for now.

Do g 43 mags fit in a g42 frame similar to tue g19 and 25, or is the g42 mag well shorter &/or narrower??

Is the slide &/or the grip of the 43/48 really only .1” wider than a 26/19??

You can put g48 mags in a g 43 like 19 mags in a 26??

Last question, can you run a g48 barrel in a glock 43 frame???

Thanks

Link Posted: 3/30/2019 9:50:09 PM EST
The G42 and G43 are completely different frame sizes, they are in no way interchangeable, unlike the 19 and 25.

The 43X/48 are the same width as the 43.  The entire grip is the same width as the protrusion at the top of the 43's grip.

Almost everything but the mag is interchangeable on the 43, 43X, and 48.  You can use 43 triggers in the 43X/48, the slides and barrels can be mixed and matched.  43X/48 mags will NOT fit in a 43 or vise versa.

That is correct.

They did say they were also working on a magazine for the 43.
Link Posted: 3/31/2019 9:16:45 AM EST
They have a plus three on their website but still show the plus 4 and the 15 as preorder and out of stock. I bought a plus two from hyve tech and it’s way too big for what it adds so a flush 15 will be sweet!

If you watch the snow / breath in this one it looks much better / more believable FWIW

Really hope it is real and reliable though.  Will be picking up a 48 asap if so.

This. If you take a Glock 42 and hold it upside down you can drop like 14 rounds of 380 in the empty magwell nearly double stacked.
Now obviously you need room for the mag body and spring and the double to single feed transition. But surely 9-10 in doable.

That’s a 16 round CZ75 magazine. If you push the magazine release it will even drop free.

I’d say the 14 round 75 mag might be close to flush and with a shorter follower I think 15 rounds would be possible.

I don’t know if it’s doctored or just some kind of video artifact, but it sure looks weird. If it were doctored, I’d have to assume they are designing such a mag, don’t have a working prototype, and want to build hype early. I don’t know, and this is 100% supposition in my part.

Honestly, regarding the video, who really cares? All I care about is if they release a working magazine with increased capacity.

Or they said it would be released by Summer.  It's not summer yet.  And no gun company in the history of ever has met a projected release date.  So I'd expect no earlier than Q2 2020.  I'll be pleasantly surprised if they beat that.
