Glock 48

#1

So what is everyone's thought about the new glock 48. I personally am curious about it. It might fill a small niche in my collection even though I am not a glock fan.

My opinion is that I'd rather have a G19 with the added capacity instead of the G48. I don't see that the slimmer G48 is much of an advantage to me for concealed carry use.

The only thing is, I could see a G48 in my future, for one particular purpose. My wife struggles a but with the wide grip of the G19 which she uses as a bedside gun and the G48 would help in that regard albeit at a loss of 5 rounds.

A thin polymer, single stack 9mm? Kahr arms has been making one for over a decade....
...so I've got that going for me, which is nice.

And they're excellent guns. Got a couple of them.

I like it, it's basically a striker fired Sig P225. Great summer concealment gun.

My thoughts as well. This is what I wanted Glock to produce back with the 43 came out.

Major plus that it is actually thin enough to get one's hand around without being named Mongo.

Still has the goofy Glock grip angle and squshy trigger.

Went and handled both the G48 and G43x today. I liked both of them and one of them will eventually replace my G26 I carry every day. The guns feel much better in the hand than the G43 not just because they are longer but they do feel a little thicker in the hand. Other than that they are Glocks and will work like a Glock. Only thing I would like better would be a black slide.

Id trust anything Glock but for me a slimmer frame with less capacity is not what I need.

I haven't kept up on the new Glock offerings, but my daily carry used to be a Glock 19, and a few years ago, I moved to a Glock 43, which I like better. Ideally, I'd go with something that has the same grip size, profile and width as the Glock 43, but a longer slide. Seems like that's the ONLY new 'version' they didn't make - lol.

Buy G48 and put that slide onto your G43.

I just got one today. I like the feel and ergonomics better than the double stacks. I am going to run 2 to 3 hundred rounds thru it on Tuesday (2/13/2019). I will put up a review on Tuesday evening. Cost was $413.00 out the door at Chambered USA (Jay).

This 48 is the 43 with an extended barrel (4.1" I believe).

Also has a longer grip... holds 10 rounds vs 6 or 7 on the 43.
