Precision and Speed: The G43X and G48 are now MOS ready

Glock introduces two of the newest Slimline models, the Glock 43X and the Glock 48, which are now available in MOS configuration. The G43X MOS and G48 MOS have slide cuts designed for specific micro-optics and do not include adapter plates.

These pistols incorporate elements of the Slimline series such as the short trigger distance, a frame with a built-in beavertail, a reversible magazine catch and the incredibly accurate, match-grade Glock Marksman Barrel (GMB) of the Gen5 series. The G43X and G48 also feature precision-milled front serrations.

The slim (01) magazine is built in reliable Glock style and has an orange magazine follower for higher visibility.

This magazine was specifically developed to ensure the 10 rds magazine capacity of both pistols.


The G43X MOS has a shorter slide than the G48 but the same compact size grip length with a minimal profile and a built-in beaver tail, its comfortably balanced, versatile grip is ideal for a variety of users.


The G48 MOS in caliber 9 mm Luger is of similar length and height as the G19 but the width of the pistol is reduced for increased concealability and better carrying comfort.

Both pistol models will also be available as a combo version accompanied by a Shield Red Dot Sight which can be directly mounted to the MOS recess of the slide


A red dot sight that maintains full functionality in a slim housing designed for concealed carry handguns like the G43X MOS and G48 MOS.
