- The Glock 43 is an unbelievably concealable pistol but may be too small or lean on features for some.
- The Glock 48 ups the features and size, but isn’t as concealable nor as shootable as the G43.
- The Glock 43X, which shares a frame with the G48 but with a shorter slide, is a solid compromise.

Today we will compare two Glock pistols designed for carrying concealed — the G48 and G43 — to help you determine if one might be the right Glock pistol for you.
