Default Glock 48 & 43x Improvement

This is an awesome improvement and the already great platforms in the 48 & 43x. Theyíre slim and easy to conceal with the only con being the decreased capacity until now! Got my new 15 round mag in from Shield Arms

Hopefully they work as good as the Glock magazines I have 2 on the way from Shield Arms.

I got 4 of the shield Arms Mag. I have zero problems with them and they are a game changer for the 43x

I reeeeeeeally thought about buying a 43x last weekend but bought a p365. Had I gone with the Glock I was going to get one of those mags.

Glock missed the boat—again. Had they made those mags themselves I don’t think nearly as many folks would be looking at the sig or hellcat.

The boys and I only have two single stack, 1911 Colt & Sig, but I always like the double stack magazines and all the son's Glocks are doubles. I know some will make the same comments "if you need more than a single stack you can't shoot." BS on that, more lead the better especially if you're in a fight for your life.

Good deal and will be following for range results.

I just bought a Glock 43x and LOVE it for conceal carry. I was carrying a Glock 23 and yeah it’s got 13 rounds but it’s heavy and wide. Didn’t think it of wide until I got my 43x. This pistol is nice. Been carrying it at 9 o’clock with a IWB holster and it’s comfy. I’d appendix carry but I got a gut.

I have three of the S15 mags for my 43X. I have had zero issues to date. About 300rds through them so far.

I stopped by Brush 2 Bay last week and ended up buying a 43x. The S15 mag pushed me over the edge. I thought I wanted either a Hellcat or P365, but decided I want a little more grip.

I was notified of the S15 being in stock yesterday but it was gone by the time I could order. They are now allowing prepaid backorder, so I went ahead and ordered.

I recently shot the 43x & the Sig P365XL. As a long time Glock fan/owner, I clearly shot better with the Sig, which surprised me. I ended up buying the Sig as my new carry gun.
