GLOCK Debuts the G43X and G48 Handguns

Both guns have 10-round magazines, and they're priced the same as the G43.

The 9x19 chambering and ease of concealability line these pistols up for carry popularity, and the fact that they come with front serrations, a built-in beavertail, reversible magazine catch, and a match-grade GLOCK Marksman Barrel just add to the benefits.
