You guys have some good suggestions! In all seriousness, I feel like I have carry covered, so it might be best to get a 17 for better capacity. Home defense, driving, etc.

Get a 17, and then a separate 34 slide. Or vice versa.

The 17 and 34 use the same frame.

Get the 34 ... long slide cool factor

Then if you feel the need get the 17 slide

I had a 34 and a buddy was wanting it, at the time I kinda needed cash for the Baja bug, I really regret taking the easy way ... I could have sold something else and now wish I had


If you really want something you'll find a way ...
... if you don't you'll find an excuse.

I'm really not a "kid" anymore ... but I haven't grown up yet either Wink

It's a good thing this thread isn't about being gay, because the latent homosexuality would be a massive sextuple rainbow by now.

If you have no interest in Glock, you'll never post in this thread.....

Again and again, methinks though dost protest too much.....

Fellas, the only person concerned about your choice in this matter... is you.

After so much time, if you haven't figured it out, well... It's obvious you love the Glock, if you have to post here to tell everyone you don't.

Remember the old ad in which a person rounded a corner while eating peanut butter and ran into someone eating chocolate, only to discover reeces?

I took the slide of my 48 and slipped it on my 43. I put the slide from the 43 on the 48 frame, making a 43X size pistol (without the gaudy silver slide), and spent a little time with it. I tried it in pocket holsters and with draws from the pocket, and maybe I get it now, the attraction. It makes some sense.

The 43 is just a fantastic pocket pistol...but a 43X may be in the cards.


--ok, a week later (edit), I broke down and put a 43X on layaway. I wouldn't have, but it was a used pistol (no marks, no wear, a box of ammo through it and looked brand-new, except for different sights), and the price was right...and I was thinking of trying one. Plus it's an excuse to get more G48 mags. The wife will be pissed. Again.

Prices coming down in this market. Stopped by the gun store to cool off during my motorcycle ride yesterday. It was 95 out, hot, humid, and I wanted some AC.. That chat ended up with me buying a new glock G48 standard sights.

Will the G43 trigger fit into the G48, since I have an upgraded trigger in that gun, I'd move it since it is better...



I swapped my G43 Talo slide onto the 48 lower and presto chango a G43X is born. Testing is in order....

Snagged a G48 last week and got about 200 rounds of ball and 50 rounds of HST without issue. Can’t tell a whole lot of difference between it and a G43 with 8 round extensions. Smooth, boringly glockish. May do an mrds cut on it. Got to decide if I want to go down the pistol optic rabbit hole.

The G48 takes a full size trigger shoe; the same trigger shoe that goes in a G19 will go in the G48. It's not the same as the G43.

Picked up a 43X a few days ago. Hopefully I'll get a chance to shoot it this week. I wasn't all that interested in it until I held it... It just fits so naturally.

I picked up the G43X, shot it, put on XR sights and a Vickers trigger shoe to get rid of the serrations, and have carried it. I like it.

The wife is pissed.

I'm okay with that.

Came here to say that if you haven't bought a 19x yet, you should definitely have it on your list. I'll just leave this bit of motivation here-

Was able to buy back my Gen 2 17 and Gen 3 19 over the last few months. Couldn't be happier to have them back. Not able to easily buy a 19x here in CA but that pic looks nice.. 19 slide and 17 grip length I've held one but it was for LEO purchase only. Frown

Well looks I bought a G26. It was on consignment as used but looks NIB and was a fair bit under market value.

I sold my 19X after buying my G45.
I prefer it over the 19X.
Can you get a G45 in CA?

I really wish I had picked up a G45 before the new laws went into effect here in Wa. Initially, I wasn’t sold on the concept until I handled one at a shop and immediately liked it. Of course, the way our laws are going, a G48 would have probably made more sense, and after handling one of those, I had both on my “snag it while you can” list, just run out of funding. Oh well. When I get to a free state. Smile

Yes, but we pay about double the normal price.
