I'm going for 2 black G43x but my G43 is a keeper it has its purpose and a good one !
Why do some people have such a problem with front slide serrations? Is it a purely aesthetic thing, or is there some sort of functional downside to having them?
They have never had to cycle the slide with one hand , it's very useful !
Now that 43x looks great. I will have to get one. I know a lot of people say a firearm is a tool and looks don’t matter , it’s all about function. I happen to like the utilitarian and simple looks of Glock pistols. I’m not knocking the custom or Gucci Glocks, just not for me. And of course it functions and is reliable cause it’s a Glock! And yes on the front serrations, sorry Borg
Exactly, anyone who has to handle firearms a lot, loves having the extra grip surface.
Also, I noticed people with weaker or smaller hands like having the extra option.
I hope they stick with the standard black barrel finish used in the other 43X and put DLC on the slide.
July 22nd. Probably will sell out the first day.
Looks like that's what you will be getting.
The Glock web site says the black slide finish will be nDLC. The barrel is not mentioned, but I doubt they will change what has been used in the silver guns... basically the Gen4 finish. Sounds good to me.
Error - duplicate post.
Prepaid for my Blue Label 43X today but can’t bring it home until next Monday because of some deal the shop has with Glock.
The only differences from the 43 that I didn’t expect was a crowned barrel and a larger slide stop/release tab. The tab fills the mag follower recess very nicely.
Picture taken in the shop.
I suppose you will be going to the Sig Forum. Chow.
My LGS got one in for me today. I don’t care one way or the other about the front serrations but they look so much better with the black slide.
Buddy at work got a silver slide model. I fondled it a bit.
Think I’ll be getting a black slide model in a few weeks. Especially if those 15 rounds magazines come to fruition
Full disclosure. I am lazy and haven’t done research but can anyone tell me if the black finish is the nDLC as used on the gen 5 Glocks? I’d much prefer a black finish in nPVD like the sliver slide.
The slide stop tab is the same size on my 43 compared to the 48 though they are not interchangable IIRC due to slight internal difference, minor difference is the design of the grooves on the tab, 48's grooves are framed/windowed and the 43 the lines of the grooves go fully across the face of the tab.
My 43X definitely has a bigger tab that engages the magazine follower as compared to my 43. I’ll be able to post a picture after I pick up the X.
If those magazines front Shield Arms ever show up and are reliable that will really hurt Glock 19 status. The next question would be why did Glock not make a 15 round magazine? Were they manufacturing it for a specific market? Hmmm Canadian legal barrel (Glock 48), 10 round magazine- Canadian magazine max capacity? Seems to be targeted toward restricted markets. Why else would Glock pick a 4.17in barrel?
A 15 round Glock 48 that has a universal rail would completely derail any future Glock 19 sales.
I think Glock has one major obstacle and one major plus, a double edged sword of sorts- their magazine design.
I have no idea if it’s nPVD but mine looks and feels like the gen 5 finish.
Look a my post #88 above. Glock web site says nDLC on the new black 43X & 48.
The nDLC is a material applied using a PVD application process (Physical Vapor Deposition).
