    Well, the internet says that you can sand down the sides and it will fit the 43x and 48. Calipers say there is 2mm difference in width between the g17 mag and the g43x/g48 mags. The feed angle and feed lips are the same. If there is 2mm worth of plastic to spare (1mm from each side) and it works Iíll have a 17 round range mag to do an extended test, and if it works then Iíll have a 17 round spare mag for carry.

    If the g17 mag works well after modification, I may try a g19 mag. If that works very well also, I just might sand down a G26 mag and do a g43x grip chop to get the thinner slide and frame of the g43x and the short grip of the g43. Only time will tell if I go that far. Iíve been measuring and pondering for about 6 months with the desire to have a g43 thin size that would take a g26 mag.

    One may ask why would I do such a thing? Because Iím retired and now have time to tinker with things, and I have a 43, 43x, and 48 so I donít mind experimenting with the 43x.
    The only thing better than having all the guns and ammo you'd ever need would be being able to shoot it all off the back porch.

    Want to see what will be the end of our country as we know it???

    I see. You and me are alike. There's joy to be found in that tinkering stuff. More so when it works out. Messing with plastics in the past, I found that the methods to shape, blend and polish metals can be used on the plastics as well. There's a plastic polishing compound (forget the maker and the name) that I once posted about here. I used it to restore old tail light, blinker, running light lenses in hot rods. Once you get that mag close to fitting you can use that stuff with some sort of pad on a power tool to take off the last umteenth of an inch to make it fit and give it smooth finished look at the same time. Good luck with it and hope to hear of your "win".. 😁

    I am not sure it was this brand, but looks to be something that would work the same.
