Glock 48 Features

The Glock 48 uses a single-stack 10 round magazine and takes the overall design of the Glock 19 Gen 5 and fits it into a package that is only 1 inch wide.  Its magazine release is reversible for both left and right handed users, and its sights are windage-adjustable.

Glock 48 Capacity

The Glock 48 ships with polymer single-stack 10-round magazines.  Aftermarket magazine manufacturers have made steel magazines available, with their thinner wall thickness allowing a 15 round capacity.  Be sure to get the metal aftermarket magazine latch if running these steel magazines.

Glock 48 Ergonomics

Ergonomics
The Glock 48 is very close to the same overall height and length of the ubiquitous Glock 19, and the 48 carries over many of its ergonomics and other design features into a 1 inch wide pistol.  This thinner cross section gives users a very comfortable grip regardless of hand size.  All of the controls and the takedown are identical to the 19.

Glock 48 Fit & Finish

The build quality of the Glock 48 is exactly what you would expect out of any Glock.  The nDLC coating is consistently applied across the slide, and the polymer frame is free of any overpress defects from the injection molding process.

Glock 48 Concealability

Concealability
Since the Glock 48 is basically a thinner Glock 19, concealability is only dependent on choosing the right holster.  Thanks to its thin cross section, the Glock 48 refuses to print through most attire.  The only more-concealable Glock models would be the Glocks 42 and 43.
