    Need some details.

    Edit:

    Found this on the shield arms website. No details though.

    https://shieldarms.com/glock-43x-48-15-round-mag

    This could be game changing.

    I'm guessing it is a metal mag, unlike the the glock plastic mag body with a metal sleeve on the inside.

    Yeah that’s what I figured, it’s a metal mag they went with to increase capacity...on the waitlist so we’ll see...

    It hasn't become a thing because it's not out yet.

    Could be, but I hope not. Metal mag with plastic mag catch/release would not be good for the long term. Plastic/plastic good. Metal/metal good. Mix - not good.

    I don't own a 43X/48 yet, but if all rounds actually line up to the witness holes when loaded up, there's a lot of unused space in there.

    Five or ten minutes after the G43X and G48's release.

    I'm not going to lie, it makes those models a lot more interesting to me.

    If successful, makes me wonder what they could do with a 43 magazine.
