Glock 48 - 9mm
Ratings & Reviews
The Perfect Crossover Compact 9mm
Love the 48! Being 6'3" I have really long fingers. My support hand thumb is far enough back from the muzzle on the 48 for me to be comfortable shooting it. This is not the case with the 43 for me.
In my hands it feels like a 9mm 1911. Nothing against Glock, but I have never been a Glock guy. I have never been excited for a Glock release. Ive owned a G3 19 for awhile, but I actually lost sleep over the 48. Its a full size gun that feels like a subcompact.
With more rounds its lighter than my previous EDC (rhymes with field). It also has a 4" barrel, meaning better hollow point expansion and a full hand grip. Im impressed, way to go Glock! The 48 is the perfect crossover compact pistol IMO.
Great Job Glock!
I had some range time with a G48 last week at a low light training session. I went out and purchased one the next day. This is the best hand fit I've had in a pistol in years. Both my unsupported strong hand and off- hand accurracy improved immediately. The pistol shot between 6" and 8" groups out to 35ft out of the box. Tis will definately be my EDC after a few more accessories are developed.
Give the 48 some much needed attention
I was sold on a 43x, it was everything I wanted in a edc gun... I went to purchase it and seen the 48, fondeled it for a while.. 43x for a while... wow to me, the 48 just feels right, I like the size of it, just feels a lot better than the 43x did to me... get both in your hands before making your decision...
Smooth as butter

Tested this a a birthday party at the range. I went the next day and bought this amazing weapon. It shoots so smooth and accurate. Five stars for Glock 48. One of the best pistols I have shot ever, this includes my military background and also being from a country background. Smooth as butter. I suggest you grab one or two.
For me, the perfect EDC
I saw it when I stopped to look at a 43X. The 48 felt, to me, like the perfect answer to the 19 I rarely carried. I did have a 43, bought at it's introduction, but it always felt like just maybe not enough. I traded my 43 for the 48, it fits all my 43 holsters, and even with only four more rounds, it just feels right. Glad I made the purchase.
Amazing gun! Great around my hands handle great feels great! I would buy another
Been a Springfeild owner for a long time, never found a Glock that fit just right until I tried to 48. Kept going back and holding it. Now I work parttime at a Glock range so I got hassled a lot to buy a Glock. Now I own one and love the 48.
Glock 48X is definitely a 5star concealed carry weapon I highly recommend!
by Blake H.
Iv always been a 1911 guy from the start but, iv had my share of glocks as well, Glock makes a great and life trusting gun, iv never had a flaw or anything negative to say with my glocks, I bought the Glock 48x for my wife about 2 months ago and she's been in love with it, as iv gotten to shoot it more n more when able iv come to like it maybe more than my factory Glock 19 and my Custom Glock 19, it slim design almost feels identical to holding a 9mm 1911 and it's lightweight and smooth recoil makes it all the more perfect. Great job Glock definitely a 5 Star product the 48X is, i would definitely recommend the 48X to men or women either one or even as a great starter gun for someone, not to heavy or to light or to bulky but just right (in my opinion) . Have a great day and happy safe shooting!!!!
Traded my M&P shield for this, best choice I ever made.
by 1SG D. Smith Army Ret
I have a G42 for CCW but wanted to step up to a 9mm, I bought a S&W M&P shield but was having control issues with a 3in barrel, a friend of mine suggested the new G48. It felt right in my hand and I liked the 10rnd mag, being in NY I had to like it. Bought it, went to the range and WOW what a difference an 1 1/4 makes. Cant say enough about this weapon, it was well worth the price I paid and traded the M&P for it. I highly recommend this weapon, for CCW.
We chose a GLOCK 48 X because !!
We decided to choose a GLOCK 48 X because of the slimer feel and design for concealment.
With a 9mm in mind and 135 grn. jacketed rounds, the power and accuracy is exceptionally
good! The marksmen barrel is a plus added to the GLOCK. We hope to see multi parts available
for future advancements and training multi purposes...
Thank you GLOCK,
GOD BLESS YOU
Hit a homer!
After holding the new Glock 48, I sold both my G 43 and G 19! It’s the best of both......easily concealed AIWB, and more accurate than the G 19! I’ll put around 6,000 rounds a year through it......for many years. I’m actually going to buy another identical G 48 to carry everyday...... put about 1,000 rounds through it to ensure it’s reliability, but use it primarily as my daily carry gun...... keep it a “low mileage unit” for self defense. I plan to shoot the crap out if the one I have now.... it’ll be interesting to see how many rounds I put through it!
Bottom line.....I’m obviously a Glock lover..... shot them for years..... Glock hit a homer with this one!
Excellent for carry.
Was never a fan of Glock though I admired the simplicity and reliability. The 48 changed my mind, even though my hands can handle the 17/19/21 I never liked it. The 48 is a slimmer 19 which to me is the perfect Glock for civilian carry. Concealed or exposed, pocket or belt. The factory sights are clear enough to hit my target at 25 yards and beyond, the balance, weight and grip just work for me. 10 round mag equals my J frame + reload. What's not to like?
Glock innovation !!!
by Craig B
Superb !!! Love my Glock 48 (9mm) fits my hand like a glove and is a featherweight :) My only ?? is When is the Exact same Dimension (single stack) 40 S & W Forthcoming ??? Help this would be a Gamechanger !!! Will purchase in a Minute Keep up the Great Job Glock Craig
Excellence all around.
Of all my Carry handguns, my G48 is the pinnacle of what I prefer. The slim design makes concealment much easier. The grip size makes it faster to get a good purchase on the gun. I chose Ameriglo sights, which give me an excellent sight picture. I think of the G48 as a slim G19.
