Dimensionally they have to be the same size as polymer.

Certainly more rugged, but haven't read about many Glock mag fails.

Set my Ruger SR9c next to a 43X at the shop. Practically identical in size. And with the 15 rd Security 9 mag in it with the sleeve I had adjusted to fill the gap, I'm already there.

@Steelharp I miss the sr9c I bought from a buddy because he needed the funds. I agreed he could buy it back thinking he never would. Took about a year, but he came up with the money.

I miss the SR9c sometimes. I really didn't get attached to it much. I thought it a bit awkward and heavy for my little mitts.

I had 2 at different times, and we just didn't mesh. I sold my last one to Musicman several years ago. BTW, is he still around?

Mine, with the 15rd mag and shaved down mag sleeve. About half the width of its' original 17rd size.

Nice comparison. Thanks for showing this.

I do have to admit that in the physical appearance department, the SR9c does win out.

The Ruger SR9c is discontinued, so what's the point ? the Glock 43, 43X and 48 and Sig 365, 365XL are in current production.   

The S&W Model 1905 stopped being made in 1942 and I am still buying them. The SR9c is out there reasonable on the used market. In lots of cases slightly cheaper than the other ones mentioned. Gotta have options.

Just because they are in current production, doesn't necessarily make them a better option.  There are lots of older firearms that are just as good and certainly cheaper on the budget.

Ruger has to be the most puzzling firearms company going, though.  Seems like they make a semi Auto for five or so years and then drop it from production, regardless of the success (the LCP seemingly being the lone exception). The model mentioned above is a good case in point.  The LC9s is another great example.  And why do they continue to sale pistols with only one mag?  That drives me crazy! 🤔

This comes to successful fruition, I'm gonna be seriously looking at a 43X...

If these mags come out and do right my p365 is as good as gone!! I loved my g43 but hated the low round count. I will be picking up a 43x or 48 soon!

hughd, if you are compiling a wait list for these, I would sure like to be on it. omchamlin"at"verizon.net

Or a website that I can bookmark in order to check back from time to time (besides facebook).

Nice. Almost makes me want one. Almost. lol

Buddy, you know I've had several and just couldn't like them. Don't know why, just didn't work for me.

My Shield is running hard against the 43X, and it's close. Giving a slight edge to the 43, and it hurts to say that. But I did pre-order some mags for it.

      Hi all. Recently started becoming interested in the reflex red dots and bought the Walther Q5 Match and mounted a Vortex Venom on it. I took it out to the range on two occasions now along with a few other 9mm of mine. 
      First, about the pistol:
      - Great striker fired pistol. I own dozens of guns and only two are polymer, this and my Springfield XDS 3.3. I have shot many, however. Best striker trigger out of the box that I have fired. Granted it’s not my Kimber Aegis Elite but that’s not expected. 
      - Nice balance in my hand. Comfortable grip. 
      - Holy muzzle flip. Not an issue for slow shooting but follow up shots take some work. 
      - Flawless operation out of the box. Can’t say that about a lot of new guns I’ve purchased in the last year sadly. (Looking at you Ruger and S&W)
      The sight mounted easily with the number one plate included with the Walther. It came with three different mounting plates. 
      I had been practicing dry fire and presentation with the sight and find the dot very easy to find. No issues with “searching”. While this is my first sight of this nature, I do have a rail mounted Browning Red Dot on two Buckmarks.
      I used the sight in “auto” mode and found the brightness very good for the range I visit. It was easy to zero in. 
      Shooting with the dot:
      I shot this gun today along with my Beretta M9A3. At close range I found my Beretta much easier to group nicely and tighter. Close range is 5-7 yards. 
      Beyond that, out to 25 yards, is where I saw the huge benefits on the dot. It improved my accuracy tremendously compared to the open sights of the Beretta (a gun I have tens of thousands of rounds experience with). My goal is to continue practicing speed and accuracy with the optic mounted pistol at the closer ranges. My confidence at longer ranges has gone through the roof with it!

      Is there any dealers in the tri-cities area that stock Glock 48 night sights?
    • By CBOW

      I found a really good deal on a DW Guardian in .38 super locally. I have been searching for a Guardian in 9mm for awhile and haven’t been able to find one. I Have never shot .38 super. Would it be a good carry round? I’m assuming it’s way more expensive than 9mm. Wonder if you could swap barrels and bushing to 9mm if you wanted
