About Glock 48

Glock Ges.m.b.H., trademarked as Glock is one of the most famous and successful firearm producer, well known all over the world.  Engineer Gaston Glock, company's founder who had no experience with firearms manufacture or design, became one of the most successful firearms designer of all times. Glock had extensive experience in advanced synthetic polymers, knowledge of which was very important in the company's design of the first commercially successful line of polymer frame pistols.


Glock Ges.m.b.H., trademarked as Glock is one of the most famous and successful firearm producer, well known all over the world.  Engineer Gaston Glock, company's founder who had no experience with firearms manufacture or design, became one of the most successful firearms designer of all times. Glock had extensive experience in advanced synthetic polymers, knowledge of which was very important in the company's design of the first commercially successful line of polymer frame pistols.

The Glock 48 is a recoil operated semi-automatic pistol with a striker single-action (SA) trigger made by Glock Ges.m.b.H. The Glock 48 is effectively a slimmed-down the 19 model that holds 10 + 1 rounds of 9mm Luger ammo in the magazine. It was originally designed for Canada, as the model 19 was not according to their law restrictions. But it came out that this lovely pistol has a lot to offer and soon it became very popular among the Americans as well. This lovely pistol is available in two versions - the one with a tactical rail and one without, the more popular of the two being the latter version. The G48 is a compact handgun that can be used for concealed carry due to its slim design and the 4.17” long barrel. To keep this pistol slim, Glock went with a new grip frame and what I call a stack-and-a-half magazine. These aren’t single-stack or double-stack magazines, but somewhere in-between. This lovely pistol cost $538. As many other guns, the G 48 has its own competitors across the gun market. The pistol that the G48 is most frequently compared to is another model made by the Austrian firearms manufacturer, the Glock 26.

The Glock 48 is a compact handgun that comes with a 4.17 inch long barrel and overall it is 7.28 inches long, 1.1 wide, 5.04 inches high with weight of 20.74-oz when unloaded. The G48 is equipped with a stack-and-a-half magazine that can hold up to 10 + 1 rounds and it relies on the use of the 9 mm Luger cartridge. As the Glock 48 is a single action pistol, the trigger is the only operating element when speaking about manual safeties. All three internal pistol safeties are deactivated when the unique single-action trigger is pulled, and automatically activated when it is released.

Construction wise, the Glock 48 comes with a polymer frame and integrated polymer grips assuring comfortable holding of the gun. It comes in two designs, either with the silver finished slide or with the nDLC black slide. The G48 incorporates elements of the Slimline series such as the short trigger distance, a frame with a built-in beavertail, a reversible magazine catch and a match-grade GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB).

The Glock 48 initially features a 10+1-round stack-and-a-half magazine made of durable polymer with steel-liner insert. The magazines themselves are fairly inexpensive and cost approximately from $24.99 to $29.95 each. But as mentioned before, this pistol allows a lot of customization and the magazine extensions as well. So in case, the initial mag capacity is not enough for you, it can be easily extended to for example 15, 19 or even to 30 rounds with the 30-round drum magazine, which is quite impressive.

The Glock 48 is equipped with fixed, white dot front and white square U rear sights. Available in three sight configurations - standard, GLOCK Night Sights (GNS), and Ameriglo BOLD. However, in case you’d like to attach a light to your G48, beware that this model is narrower than a standard Glock and therefore standard Glock lights won’t fit. The lack of a rail for lights/attachments is not making it any easier. Fortunately there are some aftermarket lights designed to securely attach to the trigger of your G48, so there is still a way to upgrade it.

Holding and firing the Glock 48 at the range is quite nice, it is easy to shoot and operate. However the slim design is not for everyone and shooters with bigger hands can have little issues with holding it. Otherwise, the grip of the Glock 48 seems like the perfect blend of as small as possible for concealability while being as large as possible for grip operation. The G48 seems to handle recoil with a little more refinement and the increased sight radius. A longer (and therefore heavier) slide and barrel make the G48 resemble a model G 19 shooting-wise. Although the accuracy is quite nice, it can be upgraded with aftermarket options available, such as Glock 48 tactical lights and lasers.  And if you already have a light or laser attached to your pistol, you should also get a Glock 48 light & laser-bearing holster for it.

The Glock 48 was especially designed to meet the concealed carry criteria, and there is no surprise that this model soon became a popular CCW option. But the concealment is the best when the pistol is carried within the well-fitting Glock 48 concealed carry holster. In states without a CCW restrictions, you can easily hide in within one of the Glock 48 OWB holsters or even the Glock 48 shoulder holsters for those who want to enjoy a comfortable secured ride. Not enough options? Then have a look at the best Glock 48 holsters recommendations for 2021.

The Glock 48 due to its slim design became a popular CCW choice for many shooters. And although it seems to be quite reliable and accurate, it is not perfect. As nothing is really perfect you know. So there are a few problems that can possibly occur when shooting with it. However, it is not a rule to experience those issues. But if you wish to know what can possibly go wrong with your G48, take a look at the most common Glock 48 problems.  If you wish to know even more about the G48, you can find the most essential information at their official website, their Facebook page or you can exchange your opinion on this pistol with other shooters on the famous Glock Forum, Glock Talk or check out the Wikipedia page as well.
