    Awesome Pistol!
    I bought this pistol intended for use as a concealed carry weapon. I’m very happy with it as it has a great size to it, not too big and not too small. Feels great when shooting. Price I feel is fair, because with guns ...and anything else, you get what you pay for. I would recommend the Glock 43 to anybody. more

    Awesome
    I was hesitant at first as I carry a G19 and didnt see what good 6 rounds would do. Im glad i talked myself into it. Accurate, lower recoil than other small frame guns and the trigger is perfect for me. 6" group at 25 ya...rds right out of the box. If you're looking for dependable pocket gun, this is one you should try. more

    Excellent Every Day Carry Gun
    I bought by G43 6 months ago after my wife insisted I find something smaller that my G19 (which I LOVE). I've fired several hundred rounds through it without a hitch. Very easy to clean and maintain, and comfortable... to carry IWB. This gun is never more than 3' away from me at any time. I strongly recommend it. more

    Go to gun for cc
    I purchased this gun at academy a few months ago. It is my everyday cc gun. I like the size as I carry in a pocket holster. I have fired at least two hundred rounds at the range using several different brands of ammuniti...on. Have never had a single issue. I would recommend this gun to any one as a concealed carry gun. more

    Found THE ONE!!
    My boyfriend was determined I find a gun I was comfortable with so we tested many guns before I found THE ONE!! I like the way the guns shoots and how the grip is comfortable in my hand. I am no gun expert what so ever b...ut I have not had any problems with the Glock 43. I recommend this gun for anyone who likes the smaller guns. more

    Best EDC gun. Best gun retailer.
    Considered other single stack 9mm options, and since I already owned a Glock 19 I finally landed on the G43. Glad I did. Comfortable to carry and love Glock simplicity and reliability. Academy had it as a hot deal and I ...went to buy one but my local store was out of inventory. They told me to come back tomorrow, which I did and they now had one but the hot deal was over. They honored the previous sale price for me given the situation. Can’t beat Academy’s customer service. more

    Great CC Gun
    I have had my Glock 43 for a little over a year, and I love it! Great deep conceal gun for when I cannot carry my G17

    Excellent ccw pistol
    Have owned this gun for about a year with no problems. My only complaint is the trigger pull is too high. Installed a ghost connector but I can't tell any difference so don't waste your money on one of those. G...un is very accurate and consistent. It will eat any brand of ammo you want to use even the aluminum case. Wish someone made a laser grip sight like they do for the bigger Glocks but that's not an option yet. more

    Flawless as expected
    Only put a hundred rounds through it so far and no issues. I chose this over the Glock 26 because it’s a little thinner for EDC. It’s also easy to disassemble and reassemble.I love that there are tons of acce...ssories and upgrades available and it’s a “Glock”. more

    Fantastic gun
    I have a Glock 17, perfect for my big hands and home defense, but wanted smaller carry option. The Glock 43 is so concealable and will fit by big hands even better with an aftermarket +2 grip extension I’ll be orde...ring soon. Highly recommended more

    Perfect IWB Pistol
    Bought the G42 and G43 about the same time. My wife carries the G42. I have cycled nearly 900 rounds of Remington, Winchester, and Blazer Brass range ammo with zero issues in both pistols. Felt recoil was not as harsh as... I thought on the G43. Great thing about it is that it will be easier to carry during the warmer months than the G26. Love the G43 as much as the G26. All 3 shoots true. You will NOT be disappointed. more

    Great Every Day Carry (EDC) Gun
    Bought the G43 for my EDC. Ran over 300 rounds and no issues with the gun. I was concerned originally with the size on how much recoil the gun would have. I was surprised as I was expecting the gun the have a more notice...able recoil. It is fun taking this gun to the range. If you want a dependable EDC gun then the look is over. Go grab one of these from Academy today!!!!! more

    Great carry pistol!
    I bought the Glock 43 a few weeks ago and I have really liked this pistol. Good carry size for a 9 mm. I got the extension for the magazine and it works perfectly for my hand size. Very accurate.

    5 Stars - What else would you expect from a Glock
    I debated between the Glock 43 and 42 quite a while before deciding on the 43. I don't shoot a lot so I was a little worried about the recoil of the 43 vs the 42. Most reviews I read said the 42 had less recoil - ho...w much less was a matter of opinion. The size was similar, so it came down to 9MM vs .380. Since 9MM ammo is cheaper than .380, I went with the Glock 43. I couldn't be happier. I've shot about 50 rounds through the gun and had zero issues. I didn't think the recoil was that bad - I've never shot a 42, so I cannot compare. This gun is very accurate as well. I put all 50 rounds in the black (9 and 10) of a standard 25 yard pistol target at 7 yards. The attached image is of the fist 12 rounds through the gun. This is my first Glock and I now know why everyone loves the Glocks. more

    Great pocket gun.
    Glock quality and a great pocket pistol for concealed carry. Used it to replace a .380 because I wanted the power of a 9 mm for self defense. Easy to carry. In spite of its lighter weight it is not too snappy or uncomfor...table to shoot. more

    300 + rounds without an issue!
    I bought this glock a few months ago instead of the sig p938, mainly because it's a single stack glock, I saved a few bucks, and I like glocks safe action trigger. I have not had one failure, even after switched out... the trigger with a ghost trigger, it is now a complete dream come true! The ghost trigger took a couple lbs off the pull, and it is smooth as butter. The next thing I did was to order +1, and +2 base plates (the +1 to keep it shorter in the holster, and the +2 in the pocket). Now I can get 7 +1, and 8 +1 on my mini glock! Get one and then practice with it, like your life depends on it. All things good here, no downsides. more

    Everything I wanted
    I bought this May 29, 2015 at my local Academy (after days of calling all around the Houston area checking availability) and could not be happier. I just got back from the range after shooting a box of Monarch brass, a b...ox of Herter's brass, and 2 boxes of Blazer brass. I shot the gun right out of the box with only the factory lube and had zero issues. Recoil isn't bad at all and the G43 is as accurate as I am. This will replace my Glock G19 as my EDC as soon as I receive a new IWB holster for it, which I had to order. If you are a Glock fanboy like me, this is a great conceal carry option. Even if you have never tried a Glock, you owe it to yourself to try this weapon. Great for home defense as well. more

    Exquisiteness
    Bought this gun about 2 weeks ago and I absolutely love it. No problems firing the weapon and since I'm a big guy the small size of this pistol makes it the perfect size for me to conceal.

    My pocket pistol for a long time
    Very small pistol is the best way to describe it. Smaller than the shield and xds which I prefer. Much lighter too. It will not replace my glock 19 for most of my carry time but it's the perfect back up to it.

    PERFECTION
    I just picked up this gun and ran 200 rounds of Monarch 9mm 115 grain ammo with no hiccup! Gun ran perfectly, the recoil is just a bit more than the G42 .380. This is a soft shooting 9mm, stage the trigger and the gun is... very accurate. The only drawback is the small grip. Even with medium size hands, the grip could stand to be a little bigger. I suggest adding something to the grip to beef it up for better control of the firearm. This is going to be my new carry gun. Lastly, the gun comes with 2 magazine, one with a pinky extension and one without. This gun will be carried with the flat magazine. If you like Glocks, you will love this gun! more

    I needed a handgun that was easy to conceal and easy to shoot. I needed a left handed mag release (I was able to reverse my Glock 42's mag release at home also). The mag release also had to be easy to access and easy to ...push with my left thumb. I have arthritis in the base of my thumb and every single handgun with a left handed mag release was almost painful to use! The Springfield XD and XDS were the most awkward and painful for my left thumb. The Springfield was my first choice too! I just keep coming back to reliable Glocks! more
