Thoughts? Looking for my first GLAWK that I can CC while still being shootable.

Thoughts? Looking for my first GLAWK that I can CC while still being shootable. I have small/medium hands and a medium build. Could use some insight on these two.

    Get the 26. The 26 can use mags with grip extenders, but you can't shorten a 19 and unlike the 48, you can still run the stendos.

      19 is the most common handgun in the world. I can see the value in a SHTF scenario of having something that can take a popular mag size. However, I am sad to say that I live in a moronic state that only allows 10 round magazines. Hence why I was even looking at the 48.

        If you're absolutely limited to 10 round mags, I'd go with the 43 mos. Already pre-milled for a optic (which you will want eventually) and a rail for a light (which you will also want).

          Any experience with any of them? I've only shot the 19

            If you've shot one 9mm glock, you've shot every 9mm glock. I personally own the 45, and I've carried it every day for 2 years now. My hands are larger, which is why I went with the 45, so I could have the 17 grip.

        Still get the 26, if you ever move to a state thats not run by homosexuals, you can run the stendos, if not, the gun naturally runs 10 round mags.

        I am unironically, thinking about buying a glock 19 MOS, cutting the grip down to 26 length and running a 26L. That way, you have the omni Glock.

          Seriously, why doesn't glock make a 26L from the factory? It really is the omni glock now that I think about it.

            After the 49 I'm fully expecting the next two to be 19/26 combos

            Hell, there are lights that fit on a G26 dust cover if only they'd put a rail in it.

    OP here.

    If anyone has any personal experience with 48 / 43 / 26
    I could definitely use some info

    Thanks

      the 1/4 inch width difference is real in hand on the 48.
      triggers are extra meh even for a glock. it fits in a pocket nicely though.
      shield mag catch itself is an upgrade

      I own a 19 MOS, 43x, 17, and 26.
      For EDC? 43x/48 with shield arms 15 rounders (you live in a ban state, so whatever) and the 19 are very close. I wear a large mechanix glove, so normal size hands, and I carry the 19 most because I shoot the best with it, but would be confident with the 43x. The 26 is the worst of both worlds IMO. Ultimately i'd suggest holding them all.

      26 is best. Despite having a pinky hanging off with the 10 round mag, it recoils less and is more comfortable to shoot than the g43x.

      It seems counter intuitive but many consider the G26 to be the most mechanically accurate glock. If you plan to carry it, it is thicker but the short grip makes it conceal the best

      I've used the 43, 26, 19, 17, and 34

      The 43 is extremely small, least shootable, easiest to conceal, you can conceal it under a t shirt easy.

      19 is best overall.

      26 is similar to 19 but less hand real estate, still decent shootable.

      17 full sized, duty, not as concealable, easiest to shoot.

      34 competition.

      48 and all the newer ones are gay.

    I have the 48 and carry it nearly every day.
    It’s easy to shoot. It conceals well for me under untucked shirts. I’m 5’11” 160lbs and have it in a vedder holster AIWB. My office job doesn’t allow firearms and they’ve never noticed it so I guess it’s well concealed.
    The capacity never worried me enough to try the janky shield arms shit. But I ordered some of PSA’s 15rnd micro dagger mags this week. Lots of people have been running them flawlessly, and you don’t need to pay for a metal mag release like shield. PSA explicitly advises the OEM mag release. Seems like a straight upgrade but we’ll see.

    Silver gun is cool. The extra slide length is never an issue so I am confused why people buy the 43x. The grip length will be your biggest enemy.

    I bought the gun to see if I can comfortably carry a compact. The answer is “mostly yes”, I can carry fine but it’s not always comfortable to have a larger firearm. Sometimes it will be in the way. If you want complete comfort, I strongly recommend a subcompact. I would never trade my 48 for a Glock 19. The thinner profile is a help for my body/weight imo.

    buy a used 43, send it to monsoon to get cut, ends up being like 6-700 bucks total.

    The G48 just strikes me as plain dumb. The 26 is significantly smaller in 2 departments while being fatter and retaining the same capacity. What baffles me though is that people want to CC a glock at all, glock mags are fat as shit meaning even a compact glock is still going to be fat while always coming up short in capacity. Compare the 48 and 26 to the CSX, which holds 2 more shots than the both of them while being shorter than both glocks, over a tenth of an inch thinner than the 26 while being a mere .02 inches fatter than a 48. If you're going to bother with a G48 just go to the 19, that way you can use ubiquitous 19 and 17 mags instead of glock's shitty single stack pattern and gain a whole 5 more shots

      The 26 is hilariously fat, thats why no one carries them. Its 25% wider than basically every subcompact

    G48 is awesome but I don’t want everyone carrying the same gun as me, so buy something else. Patton was right about fighting the wrong enemy in ww2. PSA micro dagger mags are better than Shield.

    Not OP, but can a 43 be pocket carried?

    Just get a compact 380 and call it a day. You don’t need .50 power with a 7,000 round magazine unless you’re a shitter and if you’re a shitter you shouldn’t be allowed near a gun.
