Doesn't indicate what model was selected. The popularity of .40 caliber seems to be increasingly waning.

Harder to shoot, harder on the guns, modern 9 mm is good for the job and fits more rounds in the magazines. So .40 has had its time imho.

 

 

firearm blog claims it is G26, G19 MOS and G47. the latter is a 17 size grip that takes G19 type slides with a 17 length slide. Or you could say it is a G19L with long grip. All Gen5 derived. This way all the slides and grips interchange in the CBP arsenal. I guess so all the small parts like, trigger, slide catch etc. are all the same for repairs.

Huh?

 

G 17 and G 19 and G 26 are regular frame, take all the same mags. Up to 33 rds.

 

G 43 ist separate, is Gen 5 from Start.

 

G 43X and G 48 (?) are small / slim slides, but regrettably wider mags than G 43.

 

I have to try out the G 48 against the G 19 Gen 5. ( gave one to my Son - in law, so I need only a G 48 )

 

Will neither part with my G 17 Gen 3 Olive Frame, nor with G 42 and G 43.

 

Only deciding, whether to add G 19 Gen 5 or G 48.

 

IMO for an armed service, "slim" is not necessary, except undercover.

 

So it´s G 17, G 19 or G 45.

 

I would take the G 19 Gen 5. Presented exactly that gun to my Son in law.

 

Only keeping my G 17 Gen 3 because it has that BEAUTIFUL, INDESTRUCTABLE "frying pan" finish.

Yes and no. You cannot drop a G17 slide on a G19 grip. Or 26. The latter two slides do no interchange either. The magazines are all the same yes.

Some folks will shoot a smaller grip better, particularly in fast-draw/reactive-fire situations. 

 

Just to complicate the issue, there is this;

4.3 inch slide & barrel for the G43.
