Jenks, Oklahoma (February 2019) – It was only a matter of time before Glock answered the call for increased round capacity for their Slimline series. Both the Glock 43X and longer slide G48 boast a comfortable, longer grip which offers the added magazine capacity of 10+1. With the Slimline pair releasing this January at Shot Show it’s sure to bring Glock back into the spotlight for some concealed carry enthusiasts. Now onto the holster details that we’ve had so many questions about.
While our current Glock 43 Profile holster did fit the 43X – the fitment was not perfect. After making some design improvements on our proprietary mold tools, we are excited to announce that the holster for the Glock 43 now fits both the G43 and new G43X. With those small changes completed, the Glock 48 molding tools have also been designed and put into production.
Moving onto the mag carriers – it’s as we expected. When we released the Universal Echo Mag Carrier in January of 2018 for the Single Stack 9/40s, it was designed off the width of the G43 magazines. Due to the staggered stack design of the G43X and G48 magazines, the Double Stack 9/40 Echo is the correct carrier of choice. For clarity, here is the breakout:
Glock G43 – Single Stack 9/40 Echo Carrier
Glock G43X/G48 – Double Stack 9/40 Echo Carrier
Profile Holster Details
From the ground up, each Profile Holster is designed to be an ultra-concealable, minimalistic, IWB holster without the drawbacks. Distinct features such as the matte-edge finish and minimal material used facilitate in a comfortable fit providing maximum concealment for concealed carry.
Each IWB Profile holster is formed with our proprietary molding tools to the Glock 43x and Glock 48 for a snug fit with low drag. The adjustable retention along with the inherent positive retention “SNAP” ensures the firearm is secure when holstered.
Removal of extra material between the muzzle and retention screw adds to a layer of comfort without digging into the body or thigh. The trigger guard is intentionally undercut to promote a higher grip on the Glock and allow for a magazine release while the firearm is fully holstered.
From the injection molded belt clip to the soft loop option, the cant settings are easily adjustable from 0-15 degrees to allow for a perfect grip on either Glock model.
This Profile holster can be ordered in many different colors and patterns for either Right or Left handed shooters.
Undercut trigger guard.
Works with Quick Clip or Softloop Kit.
Adjust cant from 0-15 degrees.
Full sweat shield.
Rounded and matte edges.
