Glock 43X - 9mm
Ratings & Reviews
Just Bought one today without even knowing they existed. Guy at gunshop said check out the 43X , and I was like Wtf is he talking about , he showed me the gun i held it much better than a reg 43 with mag extensions. Noticed longer grip and 10 round mags , take my money!! Only 2 things i dont like is the dull color of the slide and the grip needs better texture to slippery. Have not shot yet but am happy ovetall. $ 499 with 2 ten round mags.
This is what I’ve been waiting for. Excellent hand fitment round count, and overall innovative. Very Impressed with the new Glock 43X!!
Great shooter and fun at the range!
Grip is thinner then my sig p365 (not as wide/fat). I shoot this new 43x much better then my old Glock 43. This should have a 20+ round mag in the works from aftermarket soon and that would make trips to the range more enjoyable.
A definite winner!
Went to the gunshop last Saturday to buy a Glock 43. Had no interest in 43X or
48 until my wife picked up the 43X and remarked how much better it felt in hand
than the 43. I held it and was sold right then. Felt like it was made for my hand.
Shot it Tuesday and was quite happy with results. Side benefit: it fits most of
my 9mm Shield holsters.
Only complaint is the unglockly silver slide. Don't care much for that.
I purchased my G43X earlier this week. I owned a G43 in the past but ended up selling it as it was just too small for my hand. I had difficulty with a smooth draw and would usually have to readjust my grip after a few rounds. The original G43 is a fine firearm, it just did not really work for me.
The G43X felt great in my hand and was much easier for me to draw and fire. The extra length in the grip allowed me to have a more positive hold on it all the way through a full magazine.
Accuracy was what I expected and more than adequate for self defense purposes.
I have let two other friends fire it and both liked the firearm overall. This will likely become my daily carry once I have run a few boxes of my intended carry ammo through it.
I love my Glock 43!!!
I am a pro, double stack, Gen 4, Glock 17 and 19 fanboy. When I held this gun I immediantly fell in love with the Glock 43x. It fits exactly the way a concealed carry handgun needs to fit in a shooters hand. 2nd 43x is currently being ordered at this time. I love the look of the gun, I am just fine with the Silver nPVD finish. This gun rivals the Glock 43 in a good way. You cannot beat 10 rounds in 9mm. I have YouTube reviews on this gun already. Fits great with leather Relentless Tactical holsters. More features of a Gen 4 than a Gen 5 Glock. 2 mags included with the 43x, I can't wait till they get sold individually. Purchased with standard factory sights. I can not wait to take this gun out to the range and am super excited about the benefits to owning this gun.
Thank you Glockstore!!!!
Got mine the day it was released I added nightsights shots great no issues now just need more magazines my carry gun now

Was ready to buy another 19 gen 4. decided I needed a 43 to carry (lighter and thinner than the 19) saw the 43 X. Not being an impulsive buyer, fourth time back to look at the 43 X, I HAD to get one. Haven't shot it yet, but am sure I will love it just like the 19. Thank You Mr. GLOCK !
This gun is legit
by Z Man
Was on the mission to acquire a G43...
After Sebring - too close to home I guess- I felt it was time to step up from my RLC9S to something I could be more effective with...
THEN I saw the X, held it, shook my head at the color of the slide - WHY?! - put it in my IWB holster, clucked my tongue at the slight bump created by the bottom of the grip under my shirt, but then holstered the 43 - the X wasn’t really printing any worse than the 43, so I bought it.
Twice by now at the range with it, I’m almost as effective with the 43 as with the 19 - from concealment I can pretty consistently run “body body head” at 7 yards on 2 6” plates right at 3 seconds - not horrible imo from a concealed draw. So I switched to carrying it.
43X replaces the 26.

This has been the Glock I have been waiting for! I have toted my Glock 26 for almost a decade with full faith it would do the job. The Glock 43X feels wonderful in the hand. Shoots like a Glock should and is very easy to handle. I Love This Gun! As much as it pains me to say it,the G26 will not be my EDC firearm anymore.
The perfect carry on gun...!
by Houston, Texas
Love the 10 round + 1 in the chamber. Perfect carry on.
Easy to handle recoil on the range, easy to manage, easy to carry, love the shooting accuracy I have with this gun.
Best new Glock yet
Proud owner of this new Glock 43X, perfect EDC piece, feels so good in your hands, 10+ 1 of 9mm, and I was able to get this in with an all black slide and AMERIGLO night sights right here from the Glock Store. Just ordered more mags and can’t wait till they make a frame plug available for this model. This new Glock is a must add for Glock lovers.

After using my 43x for a couple of months, I did some modes. Installed 3 1/2 pound connector,
Tunsten rod and spring, extended slide stop lever, extened take down lever and, XS 24/7 Big dot sights. I also took the pistol down and polished the parts that can rub and cause wear. All parts except sights came from the Glock Store in San Diago. This business has great customer service.
The Tunsten rod and spring really helped with recoi
.If your sight is not as good as it used to be, you might want to try the XS 24/7 Big Dot sights. I
really love the way my Glovk performs since I did the mods.
Thank yu Lenny and staff
Got it in black - incredible!
The Glock 43x just might be the best concealed carry handgun around. The recoil impulse is nearly identical to a G19, given the full firing grip.
The Gen 5 features are awesome and gun feels perfect. Much better than a standard 43.
Glockstore is the only place I've seen offering a black slide finish on the new 43x. I can attest that this black oxide finish is top notch and looks fantastic. I'm proud to be one of the few guys walking around with a black 43x (for now...).
I could not be happier!
Glock hit a home run with this one! You will NOT be disappointed.

Bought the silver/black right after it was released. Have always shot a G17 and was in the market for something more suitable for CC. I fired a few other brands, including the G43. Loved how the 43 fired but it didn't feel quite right in my hands. Came in from the range and saw the 43x at the counter, as soon as it was in my hand I was handing over my cash. It's only a 15mm difference in grip length but for me that's what makes it. The one and only complaint I have is that I love shooting it so much that I'm spending all my extra money on ammo every week.
Eff yes. Years ago I’d shot, and almost purchased, a Glock 19 4th Gen - I LOVED the 4th gen. I started looking for a great concealed carry gun about 6 weeks ago. I immediately thought of Glock. I was being swayed other directions by friends who concealed carry, but I “stuck to my guns”. I shot the 43X and FELL. IN. LOVE. This weapon gives me lady wood. She feels great in the hand, the shots are smooth. I love the trigger, isn’t too light, making it feel like a toy or something to be taken less seriously. I also got the sites, love them. They glow making it easier to see in the dark/secured in a handbag. I LOVE this gun. I love her so much, instead of buying an additional concealed carry gun, I bought a new designer handbag. If I could shoot the 43X every day, I would. Hands down - greatest gun.
Definitely a Winner!!!
Bought my 43X today. I have been looking for a good sized gun for concealed carry, this one is definitely it! Overall size makes concealment easy and it still fits perfectly in my large hands. It is also an amazing shooting gun, great accuracy right out of the box. I highly recommend this handgun
