You own one!!!!
Thinking about picking up a G43 one day. If anyone has any thoughts on that model I’d appreciate it. Last Glock I owned was a Gen 4 Glock 23 RTF. Never had any issues with it. Possibly a Gen 3
I gave my 43 away to a cop friend in Utah as a backup gun. Hated that gun
43 is a good shooter and concealable. I prefer a double stack but I wear 2x gloves. My wife likes the 43. It seems to fit females better for hip concealment.
I have been impressed with the 19x even though the concept seems bassakwards.
My son just put some standard Mepros on it without polymer deformation. Will see how it goes.
I sold the 43 because I actually prefer the 42 with Underwood ammo. I absolutely love my 19 as it's bullet proof and has NEVER had one issue with it. I just bought a 40 mos, but haven't shot it yet so we'll see.
Glock should have stayed in their lane and not made a toy 9mm, IMO. It's sort of like ESEE coming out with this BS steel called S35V.
I have carried a 26 for I think 10 years now. I am not a fan of the size for my big hands( perfect for the wife thou) but for me it is super concealable. It also fits really well in my HPG chest rig so it stays around.
One that I have always liked is the 17. Never really had a use for it because of the 26 but I did manage to trade into one last year Its a 17 gen 4 with trijicon sights.
Honestly the whole adjustable back strap is more gimmicky to me and couldn't get it to stay on well. My solution has been to put on the one I liked and then slip my hogue grip over top.
For my big hands it is the perfect fit. I have no problems getting a good solid hold on it unlike the 26.
As far as size wise and concealable this ain’t the one. This is my everything else Gun.
As far as the Leather Bianchi holster it’s very much a nostalgia thing for me and it also works perfect for how I like to carry.
Do you have the longer trigger housing pin to hold the backstrap in place?
Video my son did.
Mine came with I think 3 back straps, a funny plastic pin tool and a extra pin.
The pin is obviously to short to hold both sides of the back strap in place as It looks like the previous owner shortened it for unknown reasons.
All that said i placed it in enough to hold one side in place. But with the slip on Hogue grips the back strap is not going anywhere unless I take the grips off. In the 10 ish years I’ve had the hogue grips on the 26 I can’t remember taken them off. So really just annoying knowing It but in reality not a problem.
2 questions for you.
#1 He said you had some problems with some older subsonic ammo. But other then that did you have any issues with ammo?
#2 How much did you find one for? I read they expected it to be in the $350- 400 range but haven’t seen one in a store yet.
I must be an odd one. I like the 43 and 48. Great guns for what they were designed for. My favorite is the 17.
You are missing the correct pin.
No issues with about 1k rounds shot so far. I paid $359. That is a lot of money for a .22 but I don’t regret it on this one.
Not odd at all. I love the 43 but I possess the waist real estate to effectively conceal a larger weapon comfortably.
What's the opinions on Gen 4 Vs. Gen 5? I've heard/read different things about the Gen 5
The trigger on the gen5 is the smoothest Glock has produced. That is the single most significant difference.
I get issued mine, so I may be biased, but they just flat out shoot. My issued guns are two 17s and a 48 and I own a 43. All have either Ameriglo or Truglo sights.
If I were buying my own, I'd look at the MOS version even if I didn't intend to add a red dot right away.
