Comparing the Glock 43x to the Glock 43: In-Depth Analysis-MTR has holsters for them

MTR Custom Leather scored big time and got our hands on the all new Glock 43x and Glock 48 before they were released, which gave us the ability to get our hands on them and have holsters ready well before launch! We are excited to have a full lineup of holsters available for all of the SlimLine Glocks including the 43x:

A-2 Dual Carry

A-3A Tuckable Adversary

B-1A Slimline Deluxe Pancake Belt Slide

A-8 Paddle Holster

(Every holster from shoulder rigs, ankles rigs IWB, OWB can be made for the Glock 43X)

SLIDE:

The Glock 43x not only features front cocking serrations but also features an nPVD finish vs the standard Gen5 nDLC finish found on the Glock 43. The verdict is out as to how the nPVD will stand up vs. the nDLC but hey, at least it looks nice…

HERE IS A RUNDOWN OF SOME OF THE MOST OBVIOUS CHANGES…

HEIGHT WITH MAGAZINE:

The Glock 43x has a height of 5.04″ vs the Glock 43 that features a height of 4.25″.
The change gives the shooter more grip length which allows for a more full grip and better control of the pistol.

MAGAZINE CAPACITY:

The extended height allows another advantage over the Glock 43 which is magazine capacity. The Glock 43 comes with a flush 6 round magazine while the 43x holds 4 additional rounds bringing you up to 10 rounds with a flush magazine. When it comes to magazine capacity bigger is almost always better and the 43x is certainly delivering with the additional 4 rounds.

Many customers are expecting that Glock will be releasing an extended or higher capacity magazine in the future, but there is nothing official from Glock at this time.

Video: How The Glock 43X And Glock 48 Advance The Slimline Series | Gun Digest-MTR Custom Leather has holsters for both weapons 

Glock’s extremely popular Slimline Series took a big step forward with the enhanced-capacity Glock 43X and Glock 48.

Undoubtedly, Glock has been among the top players in the concealed carry pistol market. Outside of their long-slides, there’s a case to be made that nearly every model in the legendary gunmaker’s catalog is a potential undercover option, at least for some armed citizen out there. In recent years, however, the company has turned its studied eye to producing pistols optimized to the hilt for everyday carry.

The Glock Slimline Series is the gunmaker’s response to consumer demand for single-stack options. This year the line got a couple upgrades that make it hard to deny Glock is hitting its groove with this configuration. The Glock 43X and Glock 48 not only offer enhanced capacity over the original Slimline G42 and G43, but greater shootablity. Actually the two walk hand-in-hand for the 9mms.

To squeeze in more rounds for 10+1 capacity, Glock had to extend the grip of the pistols. Given its mastery at packing rounds into limited real estate, the lengthening wasn’t by leaps and bounds. With a magazine, the Glock 43X and Glock 48 both have a height of 5.04 inches, which is around ¾ of an inch greater than the Glock 43. This shouldn’t make them a bear to conceal, at the same tick, most shooters will have enough grip to get their entire hand on the pistols. It makes a difference.

Need a good leather holster for the Glock 43x or Glock 48 or both. CHECK out www.mtrcustomleather.com. CHOOSE your holster and then you will find your weapon listed below in the drop down box.

Why the Glock 19X Pistol Is the Ultimate ‘Glock Hater’s’ Glock-MTR Custom Leather Makes holsters for it

There’s something to be said for 100,000 pistols sold in its first six months — the Glock 19X is the pistol that even the most adamant of ‘Glock haters’ will love.

Glock 19X 9mm Pistol

GLOCK, Inc. introduces their first ever “Crossover” pistol, the GLOCK 19X, which combines the best features of two of its most popular and most trusted field-tested platforms. The full-size frame and the compact slide have joined forces to produce the ideal pistol for all conditions and all situations. “The G19X was developed for the military and is a practical everyday pistol that will do what you need it to do, when you need it to; every time, in every condition,” says GLOCK VP Josh Dorsey. “The pistol was developed for the military using GLOCK\’s combat proven experience with consideration to efficiency, dependability and durability. Through rigorous testing, the G19X stands out above the competition and has the ability to function in all situations with ultimate reliability and accuracy. Our goal was to meet the demanding needs of the military while maintaining our standard of perfection. With proven results, the G19X delivers maximum efficiency and trustworthiness.” Confidence now comes in the coyote color with the first-ever factory colored slide. The nPVD slide coating of the GLOCK 19X prevents corrosion, resists chemicals, and stands up against the elements. Additional design features of the G19X include the GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB) with enhanced polygonal rifling and an improved barrel crown for increased accuracy, ambidextrous slide stop levers and no finger grooves for better versatility, and a lanyard loop for retention. The pistol includes a standard 17-round magazine and two 17+2-round extended magazines along with a coyote-colored pistol case. The aggregate effect of all the G19X design enhancements gives any user the assurance to succeed and survive in all situations. A perfect “Crossover to Confidence”.

What is an MOS

 

The Glock Modular Optic System (MOS)

The Glock MOS models come from the factory with a slot milled out of the top of the slide just forward of the rear sight dovetail. The slot is just about two inches long and maybe 3/16 inches deep if you remove the cover or mounting plate. The gun comes with a “cover” plate installed which fills this gap completely, so at a glance, the Glock 17 MOS Pistol looks like a regular Glock 17 Gen 4 model handgun, except for the visible seams.
Even the slide serrations extend to the cover, so the feel will be the same as a standard Glock when the cover is installed.

Even the slide serrations extend to the cover of the Glock 17 MOS Pistol, so the feel will be the same as a standard Glock when the cover is installed.
To mount an optic directly to the slide, you simply remove the cover plate and replace it with one of four included adapter plates. These plates are clearly numbered one to four and are cut with posts and holes specific to a variety of optics mounting systems.
Compatible optics (at this time) include:
Plate 1: Doctor
Plate 2: Trijicon
Plate 3: C-More
Plate 4: Leupold

Mounting an Optic
The process of mounting an optic is pretty straightforward. Unlike some other optics ready pistols, there are two levels of fastening stuff together with screws.
First, remove the cover plate over the mounting area using the provided Torx wrench. You’ll notice that the optics adapter plate kit comes with four different plates as mentioned above. It also includes four shorter screws than those that attach the cover plate. You only need two screws, so I presume that two are simply spares. They’re shorter because the mounting plate is only about half as tall as the cover plate. This makes sense because, when installed, the base of the optic will be lower than the top of the slide.

Even the slide serrations extend to the cover of the Glock 17 MOS Pistol, so the feel will be the same as a standard Glock when the cover is installed.
