We all know how much value there is in a good rumor, and personally, I would not put to much stock in them. On the other hand, there has been more than a bit of watercooler talk among gun writers that Glock is going to introduce the Glock G43X at the 2019 SHOT Show in late January.
Looking at the pattern, Glock introduced the G19X and G45. These options allowed the you to choose between a high capacity with a shorter barrel or a shorter grip with a longer, accuracy enhancing barrel. Both good options, depending on your personal preferences. However, for those who wanted something smaller yet, Glock offers the single stack G43.
The only potential negative for the G43 Slimline was its 6+1 capacity. Shooters simply seem to like more ammunition at the ready. If true, the G43X will feature a grip that is 4mm wider and 15mm longer. This will allow the G43X to accomodate a 10-round magazine, significantly upping the G43’s available capacity.
So far, Glock has refused to acknowledge that it will introduce the G43X or that it even exists…
If true, would the G43X top your list of new concealed carry pistols? What new model would you like to see Glock offer in the future? Share your answers in the comment section.
