ETS Mag/X-Grip Combo 9 Round for Glock 43
Ratings & Reviews
1.) Good profile/index - allows for full grip/still completely fits in back pocket.
2.) Good round count
1.) Make this all one piece. Everything fits with the X-grip as a separate piece but that allows for the X-grip to rock very slightly even after installed and magazine inserted. Doesn't affect functionality or indexing. Just a pet peeves.
Will be buying more as I think this is overall a very good net gain for my G43.
New “Little Friend”
Love it. Match with a Sticky holster and it still fits in pants pocket while adding weight and capacity.
Great aftermarket mag replacement for the G43
Bought this after having many issues with magazine extenders for the Glock 43. I also heard a lot about after market magazine issues for Glock. I have been reading a lot of reviews about ETS and issues in the 12 and higher capacity magazines, however as I stated I took a chance got this and like it a lot. Grip and Handle are great, magazine works without any feed issues at all. Pretty much our of the box, load and go!!. Only rated this 4 stars as trying to get the 9th round in does not happen all the time. I have read that how the spring compresses is the issue however no good fix at this time, I have looked at the spring to make sure there were no bends in the spring, however its been a 50/50 chance at getting the 9th round in and when doing so requires a loader to get that in there. Should be able to load all 9 rounds without a loader.
8 not 9
Great fit and feel, love the mag but can NOT get 9 rounds in either of the 2 I bought even with a mag loader. I'm 6'1" and weigh 265. I am hoping over time I'll get there but for now my 43 holds 8+1.
A great add-on for the G43

This combo is a winner! I love the feel of the X-Grip, it's reliable so far, and the magazine itself seems quite strong and has no sharp edges. Also, I have had no problems getting 9 rounds in the magazine. Love it.
i got a grip

it is a tad sloppy but not too bad. the 9th round is a bit tough to get in at times. overall im happy with the purchase.
Great product! But a bit of a mag wiggle.

This was a great buy for my G43. I bought mine not knowing about the G43X so I was stuck with only six rounds which wasn’t much of a problem but I wanted to be able to have a bit more capacity. I have zero issues with this product at all. Other reviews say that the mag is really an 8 round mag as they had a lot of trouble getting the ninth one in but I had zero troubles getting the ninth bullet in the mag.
The X-Grip is very comfortable and adds more stability and pinky space. It makes it a lot more comfortable to hold.
My only complaint is the X-Grip does not sit flush when Inserted. And there a little bit of wiggle room for the mag But that does not affect the performance or comfortability of the gun whatsoever.
Overall I’m very satisfied with this product and would totally buy it again.
only holds 8 not 9
Advertised as a 9 round but only takes 8. If you try to put 9 in the 9th pops out and flies across the room. There's no metal sleeve in it to fife the plastic enough strength to hold that last round. On the plus side you can easily see that the magazine is loaded and how much you have in it. I'm using a loader since I don't have powerful gorilla hands as large as my hands are. I highly recommend using a loader unless you don't like your fingers.

Love the xgrip. It does help my accuracy a bunch. I have big hands now I get a good grip on my 43. All 9 rounds fit in the mag no problem + 1 in the pipe good to go i will buy more

Works perfectly in the Glock 43, the added length and excellent extension makes shooting the small Glock 43 a joy at the range. Increases the 43’s round capacity by 50%, from 6 to 9! Great deal too and fast and reliable delivery…buy with confidence.
ETS 9-Round Mag for G43: 8+1 rounds in Reality
by NGab -
ETS 9-Round Mag with XGRIP for Glock 43 looks and feels great on the gun. I can get a 9th round in but only with a loader and man is it tight. Absolutely no spring left to compress...Not even a mm. That would be the harm to manufacture the ETS mag just a couple of mm's longer? This is a plastic mag..not steel. I wouldn't trust a mag overloaded with 9 rounds with my life. I'll stick with 8+1.
