    You just missed sub $300 surplus ones. Everyone was selling them a couple months ago. All out of stock now.

    Just wait for some former Soviet satellite state to gain favored nation status and the surplus market will be flooded for a short time.
    When and where is a roll of the dice.

    I had a G43 at some point, but sold it when the G43x came out.
    Well, today, a friend was selling his “like-new” G43 and somehow I bought it (at a great price).

    Those 15 rounds magazines are a game changer.

    Glock is missing out on a good opportunity to make money. They need to release a magazine with similar capacity.

    Yeah, I know. They are making a ton of money with all the other stuff, and are always late to the market.
    But as a company, one would think they would look at any opportunity to make money.

    They definitely need to do the same thing with the g42. Maybe have 10 rounds instead of 6!!!!!!!
    I’d also like to see a single stack 10mm!!!!!!!!!
    Keep dreaming, right!!!!!!!!!!!!

    In the 90’s there were companies making metal magazines because the original Glock mags didn’t drop free. That opened a can of worms with chewed up Mag releases and reliability. Glock did modify the magazines to drop free, Pesky Americans! A high cap mag for the Glock 44 is the only magazine development I predict Glock is working on or even thinking about.

    I don’t think Glock would ever go with full metal magazines, but perhaps modify it somehow to add at least 2 or 3 more rounds to the G43x magazines.
     
  15. Youngest son traded his Glock 43 for a G48...older son saw it, did the same..I saw those 2 and traded my G26 for one..GREAT pistol..very easy carry(3-4oclock IWB)..VERY pleased plus I got YUGE money for the G26 as did my sons on their G43s...Sellers market!!

    G48--$520 OTD..

    I’m surprised to hear you traded your G26. But I think it was a good decision as the G43x and G48 are more comfortable to carry and they shoot well too.
