Shot a Glock 43X today

Not snappy. Shoots like a dream. I want one.

They are surprisingly great shooting guns. I have a regular 43, and despite it being super tiny it is very comfortable and easy to shoot. I'm in the market for a 43X with the 15 round mags when things finally settle down with guns again.

what's the difference between that and the 43? obviously mag capacity, but is it the same otherwise?

It has a real grip with 10 rounds. It's really superior to the 43.
It's the bee's knees.

Keep waiting for the blue labels to come back in to get one. Probably going to be my daily carry.

I love mine. Best advice to anyone that currently has a 43 is to buy a 48 frame for $100 and you have the best of both worlds. That’s what I did. Now I can switch back and forth between the smaller 43 and the nicer shooting 43X when I want.

I agree. I was not expecting it to shoot that well.

I think the only con is the mag is single stack; can't just shove a G26/19/17 mag in it.

But I still want one.

I did a whole thread here with my upgrades. Look for it.
Shield arms makes metal, 15 round mags.
Single stack pistols are the only way to go for IWB
Also fits nicely in my little tether lock box I keep under the seat.
