Glock 48 is the most updated pistol model ever released by Glock. It was delivered with the Glock 43X, which is a cross between this new Glock 48 and the slightly more experienced (and more modest) Glock 43.
People have been clamoring for a slim / mid-sized 9mm Glock Glock for quite some time now. I admit, I am one of them.
Now that he’s here though, I’m considering whether Glock should have known that he wouldn’t be paying attention to me. The Glock 48 is exactly what I was asking for … a slim Glock 19. However, now that I’ve had a chance to compare it to the Glock 43X, I guess I like the Glock 43X a little better (essentially for CCW).
Chambered in 9mm and ideal for concealed carry, the G48 features a compact Slimline frame and an nDLC finish. Designed for comfort, The G48 combines a compact-size grip length, a built-in beaver tail and a minimal profile for a comfortably balanced, versatile grip that’s ideal for a variety of users. The frame features elements of the Gen5 and Slimline series, such as the short trigger distance, a frame with a built-in beavertail, a reversible magazine catch, and the incredibly accurate, match-grade GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB), and precision-milled front serrations.
The Glock 48 is the single-stack variant of the Glock 19 with a slimmer frame. Compact and built to Glock’s legendary level of quality, this single-action handgun makes a great option for concealed carry and home-defense. It ships in the original case and comes with the owner’s manual and six 10-round magazines.

The Glock 19 is by far the best known Glock pistol. In fact, I’d recommend it more than any other pistol for a widely useful pistol.
It is an incredible harmony between size and reliability.
It is large enough to serve as an indispensable sidearm and large enough for serious ranged use. The fact that it is concealable makes it quite small. On the off chance that he had a pistol, it would likely be the Glock 19; it’s not exactly “amazing” in any class, but it’s universal.
I can find parts and extras for it everywhere and it works like a tank.
If there’s a protest against the Glock 19 as a covert transport weapon (aside from the plastic / junk sights that come with it), it’s this: it’s not too big to easily conceal. In fact, it may very well be finished, but having a thinner single stack / Glock 19 for hidden carry sounded tempting.
A couple of years earlier, Glock invented a single-stack pistol for concealed carry, but they missed out on this great opportunity and came out in 380 ACP instead of 9mm. In fact, they were probably prodigies as everyone bought the 380 ACP Glock 42 for a year before inventing the Glock 43 in 9mm and people needed to buy an entirely new pistol. I may have had some inside data and know I’m waiting to buy my Glock 43.
The Glock 43 looked like what we needed: a small 9mm Glock. The problem was that it was too small to use and only had 6 rounds in the magazine. Yowser! My Smith and Wesson J-Frame pistol (which is lighter and apparently easier to carry) started looking like a decent option again with a 5-shot limit.
Glock was fine … until … Sig showed up with Mr P365. It is far from an exaggeration to say that the Mr. P365 has reimagined what a transport pistol in disguise should be. The Sig P365 was SMALL, held 12 rounds in the magazine, was equipped with a stunning trigger, incredible sights and felt perfect in the hand.
Glock had to answer. Enter this Glock 48 and the Glock48 / 43 crossover, the Glock 43X.

Simply, the Glock 48 is effectively a slimmed-down Glock 19 that holds 10 rounds in the magazine.
Glock 48 Features
1 Shorter Trigger Distance
I love this part… it makes such a smooth draw. This has been a grumbling of dig for long time.
2 Built-in Beaver Tail
This takes into consideration a higher hold on the weapon so while you doing fast shoot, you can have better control of the gag flip.
3 Glock Marksman Barrel (GMB)
It works on the rifling on and changes the barrel crown for expanded exactness
4 Precision-Milled Front Serrations
Front serrations consider one more choice to get a fast reload, which I for one see as simpler.
Glock 48 Review – Our Take
We were able to evaluate the Glock 48 at the SHOT Show 2019 and we admit it, we were surprised: we prefer it more than we naturally suspected.
By far the simplest way to represent the Glock 48 is to call it the Glock 19s. How come? Since it’s a slim Glock 19 … it’s just essential.
Is this enough to suggest it?
The pistol was reliable by everyone in the field (of course it was, it’s a Glock) and accurate enough for CCW.
This survey will be basically the same as the Glock 43x audit because they are very similar to pistols. Why did it become my “meh”.
The gun was strong for everyone in the sights (clearly it was, it’s a Glock) and accurate enough to turn counterclockwise.
This review will essentially be equivalent to the overview of the Glock 43x as they are basically the same as the pistols. Why has my “meh” become “indeed, these are perfect”?
A full explanation and a couple more modest:
The grip of the G48 is perfect
When first holding and refining the Glock 48 on the scope, it looked recognizable but thinner (go figure).
Being a self-declared companion to Glock, I noticed that it was not difficult to shoot and work (much more so than the more modest Glock 43). The grip of the Glock 48 seemed like the ideal combination of as little as possible for concealment and, at the same time, as wide as possible for grip / activity. Praise to Glock here.
In any case, this means that everything I loved about the Glock 48 handle I also loved about the Glock 43x handle (since it’s a similar handle!).
Front hammering / sliding teeth
Glock, like Apple, is known for emerging with constant product shifts.
This can be disappointing for shoppers, but both organizations learn a lot more about making and selling items than I do. Plus, it should work – they both produce quality items.
Actually, now that I think about it, the Glock / Apple correlation is very good. Other organizations will be introducing new features in their products faster than Glock / Apple, but when Glock / Apple catches up with the lag, things seem to be running smart with a much tested and planned outcome. The two companies also have extraordinary fans who are thrilled with each new product cycle even though it may offer only minor improvements over previous models.
Likewise, they both produce square objects with slightly tight corners.
Back to forward slide grooves:
Glock has finally introduced them on their pistols and they are a nice feature on the G43X; it just wouldn’t be such a thing if Glock left them out of this gun as they did with most of the previous models.
There is something particularly valuable in the community.
When you get the Glock 48, it looks like a … well … Glock. For some it’s a terrible thing, but for others, like me, who are used to Glocks, it’s a welcome addition.
I have fired THOUSANDS of shots with the Glocks. All that work / preparation is not lost when I receive the G48.
The controls are where I expect them to be, the grip point is natural, and the trigger pull comes as no surprise with a solid reset.
The accuracy of the Glock 48 was adequate (I didn’t shoot it as accurately as I did with the more modest G43x). All in all, the Glock 48 had the industrial plastic sights, while the Glock 43x had the upgraded sights (both models available below).
Now let’s move on to some of the things we didn’t really like about the G48:
Although the overall grip size is larger than the Glock 43 and was thinner than a Glock 19, it was still somehow a Glock block. We have begun to get used to more ergonomically designed weapons.
Quite unusual, the subtle idea of the grip neutralized what I’m used to. A solid handle appeared on my fingertips to make the Glock 48 need to slide / roll a piece to the side. Something about the larger (squarer) Glock grips on the larger models fits my scope layout better. This may seem like a bit of a problem with some understanding (it is), however we need to make sure we get the full picture.
Secondly, this is pure individual lean, but I think a little bit of slippage makes the Glock 48 modest. Your situation will be unique.
Third, the absence of a track for lights / connections. I understand it is smaller than a standard Glock and after that standard Glock lights will not fit. However, by not fitting a railing, they don’t allow light makers to push anything for this new weapon.
In light of our experience, it will be uniquely known for covered transport. This means it will be used / planned for stealth shots that often occur in the dark … so some people will need a light.
This is perhaps one of those firearms that you will know about whether or not you should get it. The Glock 48 is something you’ve paused / searched for, or you’re like us and can’t really track down any shortcomings with it, but you can’t really see a major requirement for the token itself. Of course, this is with one major exception: if you live in an espresso that limits your capacity to 10 rounds, then, at that point, this could be a BIG decision for you. Sure, it’s not much more modest than a Glock 19 for limit reduction, but if you can at least bring 10 settings, why bring more mass? See our Glock 48 versus Glock 19 test below.
This Glock 48 is clearly a capable CCW option in a moderate sized firearm. If you are looking for another hidden weapon and you love Glock … this could be it!

Glock 48 VS Glock 19
The Glock 48 adds a silver slide and forward positioning teeth, however the two biggest contrasts between the Glock 19 and the Glock 48 are the width and the hood.
The Gen 4 Glock 19 is 1.26 inches wide and as you can see below the Glock 48 is 1.11 inches wide. The standard limit of the Glock 19 is 15 9mm rounds and the Glock 48 only holds 10.
So how about doing some related math?
Provide 1/3 of the magazine capacity to save 0.16 scan width. In fact, that’s basically all there is to it. Is it worth going down from 15 rounds to 10 rounds (having only 66% of the limit) while saving 12% of the width? Glock definitely expects you to suspect him.
Unfortunately, delivering a large chunk of your ammo isn’t the main division of the difference …
As previously mentioned, the Glock 19 is by far the most famous Glock pistol by far. I doubt there is another pistol, from any manufacturer, for which you can find additional holsters, magazines, parts and finishes.
By allowing you to save 0.16 inches, you also have to invest resources (and stand still to open) new covers, magazines, etc.
If you’re just starting out and haven’t claimed a G19 yet, maybe this is a good place to start? However, if you’re now putting resources into the sections and extras of the Glock 19, jumping into a Glock 48 may not be the smartest move (except if you need it … then, at that point, that’s reason enough). All things being equal, you should be looking at the Glock 43x – you get a similar hood and slimmer profile than this Glock 48 in a lighter, more modest package.
