G43 vs G43x
From the introduction of the Glock 42 to the G43, and most recently, the new G43X and G48, Glock has become a market leader, providing quality subcompact guns at reasonable MSRP pricing. The convenience and form of the single stack are obvious. What isn’t so clear is how to choose between so many great options on the market.
For a better understanding of the similarities and differences, we will focus on the 9x19mm chambered G43 and G43X. How do these two similarly named options ‘single’ stack up against each other? Let’s dive in and take a look.
