Enough said. The 48 has the same frame as the 43X, but has a longer four inch barrel. The Glock 48 is an interesting combination of earlier Glocks. I have owned and sold a glock 19. The way I look at it, if that's the case, why wouldn't you opt for a shorter barrel? The 43X has the 43 slide on a slightly longer grip frame than the original 43.

The G26 is the “Danny Devito of Glock pistols,” says Michael Goerlich, but the Glock 48 is Goldilocks. I carry a 43x and I love it. I would choose the G43x over the 48. As much as I loved my G19, and as much as I disliked my Shield, I definitely have an all season carry gun. I choose the smaller gun if ccw is the intended purpose. Probably if it were me, and I had no pistol, and wanted one in that general size I'd get the 48. Think of the 48 as a single-stack version of the Glock 19.

I've always found that numbers do a terrible job of really giving any sort of idea what it's like carrying a single stack vs a double stack. But once I step onto the firing line and start shooting, I think I slightly prefer the way the G19/26 fills my hands (I kinda wish they had backstraps for the g43x/48 to make them fill the hand more). I eventually replaced my G26... And I eventually begrudgingly had to admit to myself that Glocks were probably my favorite gun. That issue is 100% gone with the G43x/48. ReddIt.

Glock 43 vs Glock 43X vs Glock 48 duda al respecto. (If you want to skip straight to the review, skip this first paragraph): I'll start off by giving my history with Glocks... My first gun was a Glock 17 gen 3 that I had for around 6 months before trading it for a different gun. The Glock 19 is widely considered a good size for a CCW and the G48 is literally the exact same size but skinnier and easier to conceal. ._2a172ppKObqWfRHr8eWBKV{-ms-flex-negative:0;flex-shrink:0;margin-right:8px}._39-woRduNuowN7G4JTW4I8{border-top:1px solid var(--newCommunityTheme-widgetColors-lineColor);margin-top:12px;padding-top:12px}._3AOoBdXa2QKVKqIEmG7Vkb{font-size:12px;font-weight:400;line-height:16px;-ms-flex-align:center;align-items:center;background-color:var(--newCommunityTheme-body);border-radius:4px;display:-ms-flexbox;display:flex;-ms-flex-direction:row;flex-direction:row;margin-top:12px}.vzEDg-tM8ZDpEfJnbaJuU{color:var(--newCommunityTheme-button);fill:var(--newCommunityTheme-button);height:14px;width:14px}.r51dfG6q3N-4exmkjHQg_{font-size:10px;font-weight:700;letter-spacing:.5px;line-height:12px;text-transform:uppercase;display:-ms-flexbox;display:flex;-ms-flex-pack:justify;justify-content:space-between}._2ygXHcy_x6RG74BMk0UKkN{margin-left:8px}._2BnLYNBALzjH6p_ollJ-RF{display:-ms-flexbox;display:flex;margin-left:auto}._1-25VxiIsZFVU88qFh-T8p{padding:0}._3BmRwhm18nr4GmDhkoSgtb{color:var(--newCommunityTheme-bodyText);-ms-flex:0 0 auto;flex:0 0 auto;line-height:16px} A slightly longer barrel allows the wedge enough room below the belt to tilt the rear of the gun towards the body without requiring the entire gun be buried too deep into the pants. Ended up being most comfortable with the 42 and 48 for CCW. If you like what you read, help keep us in business. The reason why I wanted to write this review is that you often see reviews that focus on the guns themselves, but they do not actually COMPARE the G43x to the G48 and do not always compare it to other options. If you have questions or want comparisons to other guns, feel free to message me. This is also why some AIWB holsters are made a bit longer than the end of the barrel. Looks like you're using new Reddit on an old browser. For me, a 6' 0" 185lb guy with very large hands, the G43x and 48 feel good in hand but do not fill the hand the same way that the G19 or G26 do. On the flip side, some people actually find a longer barreled gun easier to conceal carrying appendix. I love it. ._1PeZajQI0Wm8P3B45yshR{fill:var(--newCommunityTheme-actionIcon)}._1PeZajQI0Wm8P3B45yshR._3axV0unm-cpsxoKWYwKh2x{fill:#ea0027} And while the Glock43X and Glock 48 are not Gen 5s, the magazines have the orange follower like the Gen 5 models. That said, I got a 43 for cheap, and the homemade 43X resulting from swapping the uppers is cool. We take the Glock "43x" and the 48 to the range to see if there is a difference under time pressure. Not a huge difference but they're so similar that I went with the 48. That's why Glock made them. In fact, the only difference between the two pistols is the slide and barrel length. The GLOCK 48 is about 4oz heavier than the GLOCK 43X and the same height and … Here's the kicker though: Because the 43X/48 lower accept the older 43 slide/barrel, if you buy a 48 now, and a 43 later, then you will have FOUR options for deeper concealment, because you can put the 43 barrel/slide on the 48 lower, and you've got a 43X, or you can even put the 48 slide on the 43 lower, and have a 43 long.
