Apparently I spoke in the past tense not taking into account a pandemic and panic pricing. When I bought my 48 frame a while back there were a number to be had on GB and other places for $100 or so. That does not seem to be the case at this time after looking.

Keep an eye out though. They will pop back up.

Just scored a Blue label G48 from tylers, first Glock. Very similar pistol to the 43x. Can't wait to shot it.

This seems like the perfect solution to my quest for a carry weapon. I'll have to try and find one local.

Before the 43 I loved the Kahr although their magazines are... odd... I got my handgun license just to buy a 43 and then never did.

Looks like I'll have to wait a little longer.

See if Tina at MD police supply has one. I think I remember her saying she had one. Unless it was a regular 43. Couple weeks back.

I picked one up from Basspro a few weeks ago. I normally wouldn't reccomend BPS, but they do have them in stock at a good price.

I had two students bring their 43Xs to their range sessions. After they shot my Sig 365XL they decided that they needed one of these. The mag capacity is a consideration, and the 12-round mag gives excellent pinkie purchase, but the ergonomics seems to be the overriding factor.

Mag capacity? Shield Arms makes a 15 round mag for the 43X. They work great.
