G43X and G48 Back In Black

GLOCK, Inc. announced today that two of the newest Slimline models, the GLOCK 43X and the GLOCK 48, are now available in an all-black factory finish. The all-black G43X and G48 will be available on dealer shelves beginning July 22nd.

Chambered in 9X19, both pistols feature a compact Slimiline frame with an nDLC finish and a 10-round magazine capacity, making them ideal for concealed carry.
“The Slimline series of pistols have been very popular in the commercial market and as a backup option for law enforcement,” said GLOCK, Inc. VP Josh Dorsey. “With the launch of the silver series, demand for a black version increased and we began to receive requests from various law enforcement agencies. We always value the input of our consumers and are excited to deliver on their request.”


Designed for comfort, the G43X and G48 combine a fuller-size grip length with a minimal profile for a comfortably balanced, versatile grip that’s ideal for a variety of users. While the two pistols share the same size frame, they have different slide lengths. The slide for the G43X is the same sub-compact length as the G43 (6.06 in.) while the G48 has a compact length (6.85 in) and is compliant with Canadian regulations.

These pistols incorporate elements of the Slimline series such as the short trigger distance, a frame with a built-in beavertail, a reversible magazine catch and the incredibly accurate, match-grade GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB). The G43X and G48 also feature precision-milled front serrations. Both models are available in three sight configurations for commercial and LE; standard, GLOCK Night Sights (GNS), and Ameriglo BOLD.
