From GLOCK’s Website:

The G48 in caliber 9mm Luger is of similar length and height as the G19 but the width of the pistol is reduced for increased concealability and high carrying comfort. The magazine capacity of the slim 01 magazine of the G48 is 10 rounds. It comes with a silver colored nPVD coated slide with front serrations.



According to the GLOCK press release, the 48 and 43X will be available starting January 21st 2019.

We will be in Las Vegas for SHOT Show and Range Day, the latter of which is held on the 21st. There, we’ll be shooting the new pistols, but will hopefully have some in-hand prior to the trip so that we are able to do a review for you all.

Stay tuned.
