    43/43x/48 parts interchangeably

    I guess my first post other than new into is about the 43/43x/48 parts interchangeability. I know the 43x and 48 mags are and the 43 are not the same, but confused on other parts. Some sites show 43 and 43x with same internals, some show the 48 as well. Slide back plates...some show 43/43x same some show they are different. Triggers..another confusing area depending on which site you are on. I have seen the 43/43x/48 slides swapped, and seen another video that showed this is not possible. Now I want it from the real people that know.

    I have a 43 and 43x. My son has a 48. We went to the range one day to shoot and experiment.

    The magazines for the 43x and 48 are the same.
    The slides will work on all three.
    The extended slide stops on the 43 and 43x/48 are not compatible.
    The connectors are compatible.

    I've just picked up a 43x (black slide) and noticed that it has more chamber support than my original 43 and 19. Thanks for that info Fyrtwuck.
