I'm not a fan of them... I really don't have serious reasons other than I'm not a fan of striker fired systems as well as the way Glocks look... but here is why I made the plunge:

For years I carried in my work vehicle both a Ruger P89 and Ruger PC9 carbine... they both not only shot the same caliber ammo but took the same magazines.... some would call it silly but from an 'old west' stand point this seems the most practical system for if serious trouble occurred. I recently decided to upgrade my caliber to 357 Sig and the 'rifle' options in this are not only limited but for some weird reason beyond my comprehension the only choices I found only took Glock magazines.... my new 'truck rifle' is from TNW firearms out of Oregon.... it is actually a pistol with 10.5" barrel and brace... I still need a actual handgun to match it and so have purchased a Glock 32 from a fellow member here...


Welcome to the dark side..
You probably already know, but you can run 40cal on your 32 with a simple 23 barrel swap using the same magazines.
At times I ran a 27 barrel in my 33 and a 31 barrel in my 22.
I always ran stock Glock barrels instead of aftermarket.

A nice option to have with the current short supply of ammo.
I love the 357sig round, more than anything it is just plain fun to shoot.

But be careful, keep an eye on that Glock.
They tend to multiply once they get into the home..

Good luck..

I bought a G44 in November. I've shot it twice about a 100 rounds of CCI MiniMags each time and I got a lot of jams - mostly stovepipes. Like can't get through a mag without a jam. I have the two mags that came with it and two extras.

Next time I'll label the mags and see if there is any difference between them. I also have a threaded barrel I might try so see if that makes any difference. I've also been leaving the slide locked back to compress the recoil spring as it may be a little too strong at first. I do have a Glock factory "-" connector in it which should not have any effect on extraction and ejection. The striker spring seems heavier on these and the trigger pull is higher compared to centerfire Glocks, so the "-" pretty much makes it the same as a centerfire Glock.

I suppose it's possible I am limp-wristing it but I haven't had that issue with any other semi-automatic, even the known finicky Kahr PM9. Seems like it could be the extractor which does seem a little loose.

A friend just got one and shot it today with cheap Winchester ammo and had no issues.

How is everyone else doing with theirs?

^^^^ I think I was using up the last of my 36 grain hollowpoint MiniMags. Guess I can try 40 grain next and see what happens.

This thread is costing me $$$...

I just purchased this NIB Glock 48 MOS with CH Precision Adapter Plate and new Holosun 507K X2 red dot optic mounted. I was never a huge Glock guy due to the fat grip and blocky slide of the G19 but I’m all in with the slimline models (G43x and G48), along with the 15 round flush fit magazines from Shield Arms.

Para is an evil overlord. He should get kickbacks from Glock for this thread.

It's been a long time since I was here. Just bought the Gen 5 Glock 26. It's a nice pistol.

I guess you are right because next on my list is probably a Glock 19... just because I also bought the 9mm conversion parts for the TNW I bought.

How are the iron sights with the 507K and CH plate? I am considering this option but want to know if I need taller than normal sights. I am not aware of any G43X/G48 suppressor height sights, but some standard height ones are taller than others (Trijicon HD's are a bit taller, as are XS Minimalists).

I checked with C&H on my 43X MOS and they said that you would NOT be able to use the stock irons (even though their website seems to indicate otherwise).

I run .40 in my G32's, G31, G33, but also run them with 9mm barrels and magazines, for use on a range.

My G35 normally has a .357 Sig barrel, but also a match .40 barrel, and a 9mm conversion barrel. I just put a Bar-sto 9mm conversion in a G35 and took it to the range. It groups tightly, and its lock up is tight. No play, including pushing down on the barrel hood. With no spring change, or anything else but the magazine and the barrel, glocks run fine. It's a lot less expensive to run 9mm than .40 or .357, but with the barrels, there are options.

Woot! My blue label dealer just emailed me and said they have a gen5 23 with my name on it.

Sadly there isn't a 357 sig barrel out for the gen5 yet. So it's going to be a long wait. Unless I go buy some .40 ammo.



Not minority enough!

Found a NIB (made last month!) G19 gen 5 MOS today at my LGS after looking for a while now for a reasonably priced example. Best part was I was just there getting ammo!

Is Glock still making the 2 tone 43x and 48? I realize guns are hard to come by right now, but i have seen few of the 2 tone slimlines as they were first introduced.

I love my G27 (my EDC). A local shop I frequent just had a G20 come in.....I am seriously tempted.

My wife and daughter are going on vacation to Fla. in a week, I am not going. I might have to purchase that to ease my pain.

I’m pretty sure the silver slide 43x and 48 were discontinued when the standard black slide versions were released.

makes sense they were discontinued, I guess, disappointing though.

Not the result wanted but, CCR's CPII would be an excellent solution to your conundrum..
Better finish overall than original Glock finish you're looking for.
Just send them the slide (and barrel if desired) and they will take care of the rest.. Big Grin

Just an option to consider...... Wink
