Here is a history recap and some extra information about Glock.

In 1963, in Deutsch-Wagram, Austria, Glock was created. Eager business man and manufacturer of molding parts Gaston Glock begun his journey into creating a firearm empire. In its early stages, Glock started out as a company producing “a line of knives, grenade casings and machine gun belt links”1 but did not produce its first gun until the early 1980s. The first Glock run of Gen 1 started off in Austria as a response to wrapping up The Cold War, improving gun reliability, and safety for Austria’s military. The cold war took place from 1947- 1991. Austria was a “Cold War neutral state. It played a crucial role as a mediator and ‘bridge builder’ between East and West.”2 To reduce the chance of accidental firearm discharge, Gaston Glock offered a firearm with “three internal safeties – the trigger, firing pin and drop safeties.”3 Word of the Glock Gen 1 spread and the Glock Gen 1 soon after was sold in the USA.

 Over the years Glock produced many pistols and accessories. Below is a chart to show some of the more popular models and the dates that they were released.

Now a little history on the Glock Gen 5.

The Glock Gen 5 was released in 2017 and went back to a sleek hand grip. This pistol also features a removable mounting plate. A removable mounting plate makes it easy for the user to install a red dot sight. The Glock Gen 5 has a flared magazine well making it a lot easier and quicker to reload, and also provides a higher grip. Just like the previous Gen 4, the Gen 5 has the capability to be for both right and left handed users.

 Now for a little Glock history…

Glock’s Gen 4 pistol was released back in 2010, with a slightly smaller base than the Gen 3. What was and still is monumental about the Gen 4 is that the magazine catches where made reversible so this firearm could be used by both right-handed and left-handed shooters. On top of the Gen 4’s ambidextrous feature, the Glock Gen 4 has a dual magazine spring which helps to reduce recoil.

Now for a little History on your Glock Generations 1-3.

Glock gen. 1 first came in 1982 and was well loved by military along with police personnel worldwide for its accuracy and capability to be carried.  

The Glock gen. 2 was introduced to the general public in 1988 with checkering added to the front and rear of the grip to assist with better grip support.

The Glock gen. 3 hit the general public in 1995 and featured finger grooves and a light rail. The finger grooves assisted with grip support and provided a more secure hold for the user. The light rail allowed for accessories to be easily added on, unlike the previous models.

A little information on the newest additions to the Glock family, 43x and the 48.

                                                   Your 43x might look like a smaller version of your 48, but there are a few key differences. The 43x is the perfect size for carrying and just a little bit smaller with its slide and barrel size in comparison to the 48. What this means for you is the 43x on average has capability for a lesser accuracy from a distance due to its smaller site range, but the 48x on average has a higher accuracy rate due to its longer site range. The 43x though with a smaller barrel and slide can be concealed easier and is lighter by 2 ounces so its drawing rate is faster than the 48. Now the similarities.

                                                   The Glock 43x and 48 both share the same polymer frame with standard Glock stippling. Both the Glock 43x and 48 share the same height measuring in at 5.04 inches tall and 1.10 inches wide. This slim frame makes both the 43x and 48 light and in turn with easier to carry. The Glock 43x and 48 shoot 9mm and have a 10-round capability so which ever one you choose or already own; you get the same sweet deal on both. In conclusion both the Glock 43x and 48 have massive capability to be the perfect firearm for you, but have slight differences that may make one over the other a better fit for you.
