    From what I have been told the 43x and 48 come with the Minus connector if you look at the OEM parts list it shows the Minus connector.

    Does the 43X come with the breach face cut?

    Being the skeptical geezer that I am, I'd like to hear about some high round counts after switching over to the Shield15 and alloy mag release. While we're at it, any malfunctions, ftf, fte, etc? I pinch my pennies.

    1600 rounds split between 2 S15 magazine's with no problems of any kind. I already had an aluminum mag catch as I had replaced the OEM with an extended catch. I had shot around 2500 using the 10 round factory mags since installing the aluminum catch and I'm not seeing any extra wear on the factory mags as of yet.

    Basically the same experience Fredw1960. A few more rounds with stock mags and alum catch and a few less rounds with two S15 mags. If you want 15 rounds in a g48/43x the S15 mag works (from my experience).

    Absolutely "flawless" experience with the S15 mags, and a very large amount of rds. NO issues, none, notta! They work, and for us, flawlessly. I continue to have the Shield Arms, aluminum mag catches chew up to quickly, and am tired of that. I know my amigo "in the post above this one," here, Fatboy2001, has had really great success with his NDZ mag catch, with both OEM mags and the Shield Arms S15 mags. Looks like I will have to put one in myself. Other than the SA mag "catch," I have not seen "any issues" at all with the running of the S15 mags. Again, flawless, and worth carrying, if your a 9mm guy!

    I just ordered a G48 today using the GSSF Pistol Purchase coupon. I am hoping to have it in about a week or so....

    I got my 43x two weeks ago tomorrow. I shot another 100 rounds today brining my total to around 700 rounds in 2 weeks. I can report ZERO issues with the mag. As for the mag release I took it out around 300 round and only had some minor wear marks. Nothing wrong with the shape or metal. I looked at it today in the gun and just saw pretty much the same wear marks. I’m going to take it out again when I hit around 1000 rounds for closer inspection but I’m very happy with the 43x and the s15 mags. I really like the Trijicon HD sights and the Apex trigger but I know some prefer to stick with OEM. I added the Talon Pro Grips today. I created a thread about them earlier today as well. I really did love my P365 and I’m a huge Sig fan but As of right now I like my 43x better.

    It’s nice. I’ve put around 700 rounds through one of mine in 10 days or so with zero issues. I have three and shot just a mag out of the other two because I want to run a lot of rounds through one just to make sure it’s reliable. The stock 10 rounds was fine with me but an extra 5 is even better. Also I like the fact I don’t have to reload as much at the range.
