    Awesome. Sootch scores first.

    Please tell me black slide will be available. This gray/white coating is the same coating as the FDE. Not the most durable thing out there.

    RIP Glock 26 sales. Oops, except the G26 still has a shorter grip. I think I'd prefer the 43X though.

    Answers the question: mags ARE NOT compatible with the G43.

    Darnit!

    G48/43X mags are wider so they don't fit in a G43... but they are single stack, so why didn't they make them stagger-stacked like G43 and fit more rounds in them? sure that would have made it 12 rds maybe more

    I tend to agree with the gentleman that these larger and thicker lower capacity 9's are going to find a ready market with the Glock enthusiasts who have been clamoring for a larger G43 and/or a slightly thinner, reduced capacity G19. Now they can have both.

    In other words, these models ought to appeal to the CCW folks who aren't necessarily interested in high capacity, but who find shooting the smallest subcompact "single stack" 9's a little unpleasant or difficult due to the short and thin grip frames.

    The wider and longer mags will no doubt appeal to the folks who decried the 6rd mags of the G43, and they might even attract some interest from some Shield 9 owners who wanted 2 more rounds than the 8rd mag option, but didn't want to go the "+" aftermarket route.

    The new bright finish ought to offset the complaints about finish wear.

    Glock has essentially recreated the long-running successful lines of the S&W M3906 & 3913 lines, adding 1 & 2 more rounds to the magazines, and offers a competitive model to the Sig P225. :p

    Agreed. It seem odd to me that Glock has so many differences between the models in their product line. Will they start offering other guns with that color slide? What drove the change?

    The only benefit I can imagine it will have is it might show holster wear less, but potentially at the cost of being more reflective (causing glare).

    I think these may have just basically killed the G26 for anyone that doesn't already have a specific affection for them.
