Whether you enjoy the aesthetic or not it’s difficult to argue with the reliability of GLOCKs. And although most of us understandably associate the poly pistols with double-stacks, remember, they do come as singles.
In 2015 GLOCK introduced their GLOCK 43, a gun I enjoyed getting my hands on at their media launch event. Just a refresher: the G43 is a single-stack 9mm with a six-round capacity and an overall height of 4.25-inches. So, why am I mentioning this? Because the next new GLOCK, to be introduced at SHOT, will reportedly be the G43X.
Our friends at RECOIL reported it earlier today, complete with a few snaps. And I have similar information from a reliable source confirming it. The 43X would be a larger capacity model – a ten-round gun – with an extra 4mm of width and 15mm in length (or so they say). The higher capacity G43X would go right up against SIG’s very popular P365.
So it looks like the cat is out of the bag. Allegedly. What new GLOCK would you like to see hit the market (and don’t say porcelain…)?
