GLOCK 43 Subcompact | 9x19mm Details
The already legendary G43 is a GLOCK Single stack, 9 mm Luger caliber pistol. It is ultra-concealable, accurate and a fantastic tool for all shooters regardless of one’s hand size. The grip has a built-in beaver tail design which allows the shooter to acquire a high and tight grip. The aggressive texture of the grip surface allows for comfortable and reliable operation of the pistol.
The large magazine catch makes quick work of removing the six round magazine. Engineered based on the same superlative standards that GLOCK is famous for, the tiny G43 tolerates the same torture tests all its bigger brothers in the GLOCK pistol family withstand.
Role-Based Off Size
The Glock 43 is a very small firearm. It’s not going to be a full-sized gun that you’re going to want to use for fun on the range or any kind of overt duty use. If you’re carrying this gun on duty as a law enforcement officer or a security guard or anything like that, then this gun is likely going to be a backup weapon.
With its six-round flush fit capacity, the Glock 43 isn’t what you’d call a high-capacity handgun. Considering their options like the SIG P365 on the market now, the Glock 43 seems lacking.
When compared to the SIG P365 and the Springfield Armory Hellcat. The gun is very slick and slim.
It has a short grip and the slide itself has nothing fancy on it.
There are no forward serrations. This gun is designed to be a carry-on through and through. There is no other purpose for this firearm. It is not a firearm that is built for joy, it’s just your basic carry gun.
