Take a Look at the Glock 43 Gun: Does It Match the Hype?
Was there ever a more anticipated product in the Glock lineup than the Glock 43? Probably not.
When the Glock 42 .380 ACP was released, it certainly pleased many people, but at the same time, others strongly felt that it should have been chambered for the more powerful 9mm round. After all, Glock had never released a single stack 9mm up until that point, and if you wanted a 9mm Glock for concealed carry your best options really were limited to the Glock 19 and 26, both of which are bulkier due to their double stacked magazine designs.
But in 2015, Glock listened and released the G43 in 9mm, and the gun has proven to be a raging success for them and one of the most popular concealed carry guns of any kind on the market.
Three years later, how does the Glock 43 stand up? In the upcoming sections we’ll discuss the advantages of the single stack 9mm to begin with, what makes the G43 worth buying, compare it to some other models, and then go over some basic specs on the gun.
ADVANTAGES OF THE SINGLE STACK 9MM
Most people are simply not comfortable with carrying a full size or even a mid-sized pistol such as the Glock 17 or 19. It’s not that they can’t shoot the guns well, it’s just that they aren’t that comfortable to conceal carry inside the waistband for most people.
