Back when the Glock 43X and48 came out, I wanted to get one. I already had a Glock 43, but I’ve never been a big fan of small guns, the grips just don’t feel good in my hand. I liked the fact that the grip on the 43X and 48 were bigger, but I wasn’t crazy about the silver slide. I’m also not a fan of low capacity carry guns. So when Shield Arms came out with 15 round Mags for the 43X and 48, I decided I would get one. I picked up a G48 with the black slide and ordered two of the Shield Arms magazines. I decided to get an aluminum mag release, which is recommend for use with the mags. I got to thinking that since this will be my EDC when I retire in August, why not dress it up a bit. I ordered a red extended mag release and backplate from HYVE Technologies. The gun shoots great, but I’m going to upgrade the action with a new trigger. I just have to find one in red. I’m also going to get some night sights.
