    I would definitely buy a 43x if they release it with a black slide. Just can’t get on board with the silver. Hope they do it

    Cool, I new I waited for a reason.

    Although the silver slides didn't "Trigger" me in any way, hummmm.......


    .........may be able to pick up a used G48 on the cheap cause of the new, black, hotness.

    I love my 48. Been looking for an excuse to either get a second 48 or maybe a 43X. Hmmmmmm

    So Glock got everyone to buy the two-tone version even if they didn't like the look. Now those folks are going to line up to buy a second one in black! Genius.

    Or third.....I have two 48's because I like having a spare of my carry pistol. Was thinking about a 43x just to have one, now not sure if I would get an all black 48 or 43x.

    Although I would suffer with a great deal on a silver slide 43x because everyone wants an all black version now. Other than having to spend more time cleaning after the range, the silver slide does not bother me at all.

    Same as when they released the 42 and then the 43 right behind it. Nobody has skillz like Glock.

    Except the 42 and 43 are two completely different animals.

    Comparing those to black/silver slide releases is more apples to watermelons.

    Fiction novels and fake news...

    I really don't understand the things you post sometimes. I compliment Glock's marketing skills and I'm trolling.
