From GLOCK’s website:

The silver finished slide of the G43X combines its short and slim dimensions to the extended slim frame size of the G48. A perfectly balanced slim fit for nearly all hand sizes with a satisfying magazine capacity and high concealability. The magazine capacity of the slim 01 magazine of the G43X is 10 rounds.



The new GLOCK pistols will be showcased at SHOT Show 2019 in just a few weeks, and will be available to purchase starting January 21st 2019.

We will be at SHOT Show to check it out at the GLOCK booth, so stay tuned for an upcoming review.
