Talk me out of the G43X

So I am in a small purge of three firearms that I do not have a "real" purpose for.

Provided I sell them, I stand to sit on a bit of coin. Now, living in NC grants me the right endowed upon me to stay strapped every damn place I wanna. My pancakes come out cold from Ihop? Out thumps the the heater.
In any event, in the land of mountains and freedom, I carry most every day and with that, I have a few rotating to choose from.

Now I am very curious to purchase a 43X and with the extra coinage, add some little odds and ends, Agency Trigger and barrel for sure. Then the question is, I have never Rolando'ed something.....so that in my head as well. Oh decisions decisions. In any event, a little 43X would be dandy to add to the stable in my opinion. So why shouldn't I? Wrong answers are accepted as well. Frankly I encourage them. Gimme the good, the bad, and the ugly. The long and short of it. Y'know I will only listen to 3% of the comments anyway.

Paging Blaster.


I have shot the 43X(as well as the 43). Great little gun. If you feel you need a little more reach, you can throw an 18 slide onto it. Either way, a very nice compact.

Look at the 48, with the shields 15+1 mags, good to go , as well as a red dot sight.

If you go this route, you understand, you will want to change the mag release to a steel one, and it will undoubtedly eat up your original Glock mags. So, it will not necessarily be a daily shooter.

Sig p365 easily holds 12+1, while remaining sub-compact (no extended grip feel or appearance). But you can't go wrong with the 43 either, if that's what you're more comfortable or familiar with.

I am currently on the look out for a blue label 43x. Got the 48 early this year. Very comfortable. Just wanted the smaller one now for off-duty gun.
