Glock 48

The Glock 48 was first introduced in January 2019 and was marketed as a slimmer, single-stack 9mm pistol designed for concealed carry. Since the Glock 48 is basically a single version of the immensely popular Glock 19, the G48 is noticeably thinner than the G19. How much thinner? The Glock 48 has an overall width of 1.10 inches compared to the Glock 19, with an overall width of 1.26 inches. While the .16 of an inch difference may not seem like much on paper, it's considerably thinner in real life.

As the Glock G48 is a single stack model, the magazine capacity is reduced to 10 rounds or a total capacity of 10+1. The thinner frame and reduced magazine capacity compared to the G19 also mean a reduction in overall weight. The Glock 48 weighs in at 20.74 ounces unloaded, which is nearly three ounces less than the Glock 19.

While most OWB holsters are built as open-top holsters, some OWB holster models are equipped with a retention device called a thumb break or thumb snap.

FAQS

Here are some frequently asked questions that we see about holsters for the Glock 48:

Will a Glock 48 fit in a Glock 19 holster?

Since the G48 is thinner than the G19, a G48 pistol won't fit into a G19 holster. While the overall length of those pistols is nearly identical, the reduced width of the G48 makes it loose in a Glock 19 holster.

What's the best Glock 48 holster?

Since people have different body types and different holster needs, there really isn't a single "best" holster for a Glock 48. The most popular holster style of the Glock 48 is inside the waistband holsters. Instead of trying to find the best G48 holster, try finding one that best fits your own individual body type and own individual needs.

Do you carry a Glock 48 level 2 holster?

It's essential to be clear on the specific meaning of a level 2 holster before answering that question. For example, a Level 1 holster will be equipped with one retention device, while a level 2 holster will be fitted with two retention devices.

Unfortunately, we don't currently offer any holsters that quality as a level 2 holster. However, we have holsters for the G48 that come with a single retention device (a thumb break), which qualifies as a level 1 holster.

Where are your kydex holster options for the G48?

Currently, we do not carry any kydex holster brands. All of our current holster options are constructed from premium leather.

Do you have any gun holsters to fit a Glock 48 MOS model?
