GLOCK G43 Subcompact Info

GLOCK 43: The G43 is Glock\’s new single stack 9mm pistol. The G43 is the most highly desired and anticipated release in GLOCK history. Designed to be the favored back up or last resort option for both civilian and law enforcement use, this subcompact slimline design is the perfectly balanced answer to your everyday concealed carry needs. It is ultra-concealable, accurate and comfortable for all shooters regardless of hand size. When it comes to size and comfort, the all new G43 provides the best of both worlds. Typically, with handguns of this dimension, the design of the pistol does a poor job of resolving issues concerning felt recoil. This can cause discomfort for shooters who are not familiar with shooting smaller framed pistols. Seasoned shooters are familiar with this and adjust their grip, but have to work harder to keep the pistol on target for follow-up shots. The design of the new G43 allow for a more comfortable and confident shooting experience for all types of users. Dimensions Overall length 159mm / 6.26in Slide length 154mm / 6.06in Length between sights 132mm / 5.20in Weight (inc. empty mag) 509g / 17.95oz Width 26mm / 1.02in Slide Width 22mm / .87in Height 108mm / 4.25in

    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

    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

    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

    I really like this gun. My main carry was an XDS .45, and I love it, but this is much lighter and a bit thinner to carry. Plus it is a pleasure to shoot.

    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

    Good conceal carry gun, grip is small (I had to purchase a hogue grip) it's pretty accurate kinda shoots to the left a bit (it's a glock thing cause I dont have the issue with my other guns) other than that it's very rel...iable and feels great in the hand more

    Glock 43 is an excellet concealed carry piece with comfort in mind. Very comfortable to carry with an inside the waistband holster and conceals well. Magaize capacity is limited but accessories are available to increase ...mag capacity. This gun is pure comfort, slim & trim design with 9x19 power. Glock did well on this one other than 6 round mags. Should be at least 7 in my opinion. more

    Not much new to be said.....Awesome firearm.....shoots great without the "snappy" recoil you can experience from other small size 9 mm pistols. Highly accurate at intended distances. Most importantly it is very reliable.... Smooth, easy, and hassle free transaction with Bud's. Arrived to FFL dealer quickly. Highly recommend Glock 43. more

    I simply wanted to purchase a single stack 9mm I'm familiar with the Glock product and I like them very much seeing as I already have a 45 caliber Glock. All the prices in my hometown were expensive and there was nothing... availableperiod for a savings of $100 I could buy it from Buds and get it sent to my hometown. Already thinking about my next gun and ordering from buds again. more

    This is by far my favorite EDC 9mm. I am a Glock fan for sure and they did not disappoint. Having carried a S&W bodyguard EDC for years I was not sure I would like the additional weight but I hardly notice the difference.... Having the extra punch of a 9mm is definitely worth it. A purchase at Bud's is always easy. The prices are good and the shipping fast. more

    Good little Glock, no issues with it. Bought for the wife, and for a small girl this is the perfect gun, in fact its the only micro pistol she felt comfortable using after many different guns we looked at. Has a nice sna...p to it, but at 10 yards and only about 25 rounds the wife was shooting nice 5 inch groups consistently. 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

    I have purchased many firearms from Bud's. I have never had an issue with anything purchased from them. I bought this Glock 43 to conceal carry. I didn't know what to expect because I purchased Site unseen. The Gun was f...lawless. The finish is really good. I am very pleased. Let me say, if you are on the fence about making a purchase either from Buds or the Glock 43 don't be. They usually have what you are looking for but I will warn you. I looked at the Henry .44 Big Boy yesterday and today I went back to purchase and they are out of stock. Don't hesitate or you will regret it. Let me know when you have the Henry Big Boy .44 back in Stock..... more

    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

    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

    This was a anniversary gift for my wife. After researching to find the best option for a compact 9 millimeter for a woman. It was conclusive that the Glock G43 would meet the requirements I was looking for. The decision ...was based on information from a armorer attesting to the fact that this particular gun had very manageable as well as the best recoil for a compact 9 millimeter. The other source being a gun smith stating that when you pull the trigger on a glock it will fire. Let us not forget the staff at Buds. As always they delivered in a very timely manner. more

    Owning a 19, 26 and now a 43 all I can say is it shoots like a Glock. Very familiar and predictable. Right out of the box I did change the trigger connector to smooth out the trigger pull, my personal preference. I am ab...le to pocket carry it with most pants and shorts using a Remora holster (shirt untucked) which also doubles as an in the IWB holster. I am over 6' tall and a bit beefy, smaller people may have a problem pocket carrying but this gun is easy to conceal for just about anyone IWB. Over all I love it and it is becoming my usual carry. more

    I was looking for a smaller pistol to carry concealed and I found it in the Glock 43. The Glock quality and reliability is still there in the smaller version. I live in Florida and the Concealed Carry Statute is specific... when describing that NO portion of the weapon can be observed to qualify as concealed carry weapon. The Glock 43 makes concealment easier with it's single stack magazine and it's 1" width at the grips. more

    Being my first ever handgun purchase, overall I am very pleased. I did a lot of research on my own, reading many reviews of comparable pistols. However, on this side of the purchase, I see that I should have consulted local Law Enforcement and other experienced users for their personal experience. I like the size, functionality, and weight, but I thought it was Gen4. I would have preferred a better hand-grip or the option of improving it for my hand. I have purchased an after-market base for two of the magazines to help. I also bought dummy 9mm rounds to practice getting comfortable with the feel without using live rounds. 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

    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.

    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

    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

    I fired a 100 rounds of cheap reloads through the Glock 43 and was very impressed. It's basically a mini Glock in form and function. It's a little smaller, thinner, and lighter than most of the other single stack 9mm's o...n the market, but I could still get a good grip on it. I think some grip tape would help a lot with this pistol. I had one FTE out of 100 rounds, but I believe it may have been a result of the junky reloads, and I also fired it right out of the box after I received it. The gun is also very accurate. I was getting nice tight groups with it out at 15 to 20 yards--even with the cheap Glock stock sights. The trigger is standard Glock with the 5.5 lbs. or so pull with a solid break and very nice audible reset. When carrying the pistol it's very comfortable and you could even forget you have it with you. All in all I am pleased with this gun and am looking forward to installing a good set of night sights. more

    It's been like waiting for the batter to come out in the ninth inning of the World Series and hit a home run. This emphasized why ...I am a Glock lover. You hear the sweet crisp break of the trigger just like that batter... and then the crowd goes wild. The capacity is not a issue I mean after all a batter only gets three strikes. I am no baseball fan but they don't play with Glocks. So rock out with your Glocks out. more

    This was my second purchase from Bud's and after debating between the S&W Shield and the Glock 43 I decided to go with the Glock 43. I am very pleased with the feel of the trigger with this gun. Even though it is a pistol it handles recoil better than I expected. I am looking to purchase another pistol soon. more

    Received the Glock 43 today. Very nice size for concealed carry. Excellent service from Buds and I compliment them on an excellent reserve program to provide access to firearms that are in short supply.

    Nice slim compact package have yet to shoot but seems like it was worth the 3 month wait from Bud's. Will update after I shoot and compare to my excellent Kahr PM 9

    So this is my first Glock. Decided to go with a G43 as I had been wanting a single stack 9 for a while. Rented it, liked it so I reserved one. The good ... No functional problems .. Very accurate.....Buds was great as us...ual. The bad ..... Front sight was mangled ...literally....looked like someone grabbed it with a pair of pliers and tried to twist it off. Should not of accepted it but I didn't know how long another reserve would take to come in I hate Glock sights .... Just didn't plan on replacing them so soon. Poor QC I guess. Ordered TFX sights from Buds (30-60 bucks cheaper than anyone else) and put Talon grips on it ... Good to go ....will probably drop in a ghost trigger soon but no hurry. Highly recommend but have to give it 4 stars because of that front sight issue. more

    Great pistol at a fair price. I received notification of shipment to my FFL and a tracking number. Everything went perfectly. This makes order #2 for me from Buds. I'll be back! Thanks again Bud's.

    Fantastic...what took them so long!?
    Will probably own this for the rest of my life. Will be my EDC for quite some time. Easy to shoot and maintain. Been through over 200 rounds and no hiccups yet.

    Perfect for concealed carry.
    Perfect size. Accurate out of the box. Easy to maintain. Can't ask for more than that.

    Took almost 6 weeks to arrive after I paid but the wait was well worth it. Sights are accurate and it feels great in my hand. No issues after 175 rounds threw it. This is my first Glock and now I know why people rave abo...ut them, can't wait to buy more. more

    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.

    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

    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.

    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
