Glock 43 - 9mm
Ratings & Reviews
My New Carry Gun
Attilla the Hun was only 5 feet 2 inches tall, and Napoleon not much bigger. Although they are considered diminutive in size, they both had big attitudes and got a lot done in a short period of time. The Glock 43 is along the same lines. It isn't very big, but it feels great in the hand - and I have a decent sized hand. It points like a Glock should, it is solid in it's feel and with the right ammo is a very good defensive handgun. The only thing I added were Pearce magazine extensions for a better grip. I don't like having my pinkie finger hanging over the edge of the grip. That said, this is one very cool handgun - quick handling and tough. I intend to buy another one in a couple of paychecks. The 43 is a very sound investment for anyone looking for an easy handling concealed carry gun with good punch to it.
Best Concept Yet?
Even though I'm an old dog, I do try to teach myself new tricks from time to time, especially when it comes to practical, effective personal defense. I ordered a 43 2 weeks ago and will be ordering another very shortly. The design is amazing. I have a fairly large hand, but the 43 fills it more than adequately. Also, everything I've recently read says that the 9mm round can hold it's own with the .45 and the .40. Furthermore, ballistics have come a very long way in the past 30 years. Modern bullet design and propellants have increased the power of the 9mm, making it a far more effective round that it was. I have always gone with a .45, but I really like what I read and see about the 9. But don't take my word for it. Do the research yourself and make your own decision. This old dog will be ordering another Glock 43 very shortly.

got the 43 a couple of weeks ago and I put 60 rounds through it today and wow it's awesome
I like it more than my 17 it is an extension of your hand and is comfortable to hold and shoot
Glock got it right with this one it is going to be perfect concealed carry weapon.
LOVE! this gun. I usually don't spend time writing reviews but I'm happy to make an effort to express my satisfaction with the Glick 43. I picked this gun for the size and reliability and I haven't been disappointed. ive been impressed with how easy to conceal on my thinner frame and how easily accurate it is for me to shoot. I got teased for getting a nine single stack at first, but now they are envious of how lite weight and easily concealable this gun is compare to the bigger models. I recently added a crimson trace green laser and aftermarket finger extensions. I highly recommend this pistol as an everyday carry for its ability to comfortably ride on you hip, lower back, or pocket all day long. And come on, it's a Glock so you got the reliability and confidence it's gonna perform when needed.
Glock guns such great guns
I Owned one of these guns it was my first glock and I had to sell it!!! Have regretted it ever since. I now own a glock 27 40 caliber. But now going to buy a gen 5 model may even get another glock 43 such great quality guns.
I purchased this gun back when it was first released. Have shot many rounds threw this gun and carry it often. I have made some improvements to the gun as well only because I like tactical guns. This particular Glock is one of my favorite weapons that I carry a lot. Must admit it is a great shooter and great for conceal carry. If you like Glocks in caliber 9mm give it a try.
Happy New Year

Buy this gun.
I bought this gun because my .45 was too big to conceal. The g43 fits in a pocket holster. I carry all day at work and concealment means alot to me. I feel very confident with the 9mm with assault bullets. I’ve put every accessory I could find. Barrel, trigger, pins, etc..... at the range it is comfortable to shoot. Every shot is on target! Go with a winner. Buy G43

Glock 43 delivers...
by Pete G.
Just purchased New Glock 43 last week for a more concealable weapon. I was a bit skeptical because of its diminutive size but was blown away after the first 18 rounds fired through it. My spread at 50 feet was about 14 inches in diameter of center target. It’s a little snappy but easy to adjust to. My Glock 19 feels like a bazooka in size compared to Glock 43. This thing is a winner and well worth the investment and conceals very nicely.
This Gun Has It All!
It just doesn't get any better than this. I have always been a compact fan - I started by carrying the Sig 238 (.380) because no one made a proper 9mm compact. I switched briefly to the Glock 42 but went back to Sig when they introduced the 938 (9mm). FINALLY Glock got with the program and introduced the G43 in 2015... and I haven't looked back since! This little gun simply has it all. Although I am clearly a Glock-0-Phile, as a professional firearms instructor I try not to show bias to my students. Regardless, I have ordered dozens of these for students looking for their own EDC gun and who fell in love with the G43 they shot - among others - in class. You simply can't go wrong here.
Great concealment firearm for chicks.
I needed a concealable firearm for plain clothes work as an investigator. As a female with an athletic frame, I have a difficult time concealing firearms. The narrow frame of this 43 has made it so much easier. I use the Safariland concealment paddle holster with it and love them both. I use them for range qualification too with no issues.
Fantastic Glock 43
by Thomas mcCourt
I purchased 2 43 Glocks. My son and I mainly shoot in Ocala national forest outdoor range. pistols rifles shotguns AK47 you name it. I would say the vast majority of pistol were Glocks. Both guns are fantastic!
No miss firings or jams nothing! I carry mine CWP FL.
Back up Police weapon
I purschased the Glock 43 to carry as my back up weapon while on duty. I know it is dependable if I ever need it. I highly recommend it as a back up weapon.
had the glock 19,17,43x and ended up with the 43 only. those others were good guns but nothing like the 43,which is most easiest to conceal. 43x was unproportioned and i dont mind giving up 3-4 rds to the 43 for more cc. glock was dead on for the 43.
Glock's are starting to grow on me
I wasn't a fan of Glock early on just by the way they look (like a square/box) but this being my first Glock I was willing to give it a try plus I know looks are secondary to performance and this Glock ran like a top no problems out of it so far I'm very well pleased with it, I'm honestly looking to get more Glocks now like the: 17, 19, 26, 34, and 43x. Long story short Glocks are growing on me now.
