Well bought a new glock 43X mos yesterday. I was able to find 3 shield arms 15 round mags. Now just got to pick out a micro rmr. I must admit its much easier to carry than the 19.

I have to make a confession here...

One of the reason I have not liked Glocks and said so too often on this forum as well as others it I thought they were ugly.....

You know they don't look that bad once you own one....

I just took advantage of Glock's blue label program and ordered a gen 5 G19 and got a G48 for my son. It looks like it'll be a long wait before I find some shield arms magazines for it though.

I've ordered Shield mags twice.
Bought 2, then bought 1 more with the mag catch.
First order back in October took a month, the second order last month only took 3 weeks..
I thought it would be longer..
Had to pay for them when ordering, but I was fine with that..

So I take it Glock does not offer the 48 in that nickel type finish for the slide anymore? People hated the two tone look so much that they’re not longer producing it?

I liked how it looked and was thinking about looking around for one, but it looks like that ship sailed.

I mentioned on page 516 CCR's CPII is a great alternative if you really want that 2-tone look..
Around $140 for just the slide..

Thanks, I'm familiar with CCR and their CPII.

I hope I have bought my last 2 glocks. Bought a 43x last week or so. Just picked up a 19X today.

Your last two? That means you'll be buying at least three more.

I watched the vid that Para posted one page back.
The reviewer points out an improved draw-bar spring. Can anyone advise what that thick, black, prong is on the viewer's left, that almost mirrors the ejector?

I've stated on this forum about hating Glocks for years before the Gen 5s came out. But I'm enjoying the Kool Ade now with the 34s and the 19s especially. And the front cocking serrations (which I never use) does make them a better looking gun. And the 19 is just so nice to carry IWB.

It was more the execution of that mediocre silver slide finish than the concept of a 2-tone that was those guns' downfall. The finish work on so many of those slides just looked outright BAD; often its non-uniform finish looked as if the silver nDLC coating and/or the bare slide was not prepped correctly prior to application. A LOT of slides off of the early 2-tone 43X/48 guns appeared to be this way. More than a few prospective buyers in our shop during that time when they were first introduced wound up with something else instead.

BTW the two-tones are still in Glock's lineup, at least according to their website. However when exactly Glock gets to shipping them at a regular basis again is more of a mystery.

I happen to like the 2-tone also, but I have a silver one that came with Ameriglo Spartan Operator sights and I'd trade for a black one with the same (or Trijicon HD) if you really want the silver.

I admit I need one just because. Eventually I'll get one. Probably in ubiquitous 9mm for ammo and parts availability.

But which gen I wonder...so many opinions.

If only one, either a G17 of your generation of choice or a G45.

G45, full sized finger groove less fame with a compact sized slide.
Choice of backstraps.





Added the Vickers mag catch and slide stop..







Love my Gen 2 G17s.
The beater truck gun, my second favorite to the G45....

Was doing paperwork to order some Glock 43X guns for work and lo and behold a Glock rep actually showed up at work to follow up on our 2018 purchase.

He says we're the last agency in Ohio with Glocks in 357 and there are two in Michigan. Asked him if he was willing to swap out our 31s for 45 MOS guns at no cost. he laughed.
