We hightailed it over to the GLOCK booth to get our hands on the new 43x and 48 and ask about the silver-finished slide choice.
Glock told us, “It’s a PVD coating like on the 19x. It allows us to make other slide colors.”
When asked, the GLOCK rep said that there would be more color options in the near future. He told us they’ve had the technology for a while but just haven’t utilized it until the FDE finish on the 19X.
Both the 43X and 48 feels great in the hand but are nothing special. If you like GLOCK and can get over the not all-black and are into the size choice from GLOCK, you’re probably pretty pleased.
We’ll wait to decide after we get a chance to put them through their paces. But we suspect they run like a GLOCK, which is good in our book.
We wrote about the new GLOCKs leak a couple of weeks ago here.
