G43



This little toy gun followed me home. It's made of plastic so only a toy so no need to worry cause I heard guns are dangerous.

Night sights? Looks like something other than the standard Glock sights. Seems there are a couple versions floating around out there with different night sights on them.

I saw a version at a shop that had a round red front dot with a tiny Tritium center, and a rounded notch rear sight which the front sight dot perfectly nestled into. They were pretty nifty. Pretty tempted by that plastic toy gun myself.

If I hadn't already bought a different plastic toy recently (which was immediately destroyed in a tragic incinerator incedent, obviously I don't currently own any guns) I would still be considering a 43.

Not a big fan of Glocks in general but I found myself holding one of those at my LGS a couple weeks ago. Seemed like a good gun!
My wife is looking for a new CCW gun and I almost suggested it to her.

I have put 1000's of rounds down the barrel of a 92Fs and 96Fs and shot them pretty well. I then had to switch to a Glock G22 and fugg the first rounds I put down range were amazingly tight. I then bought a G34 and holy crapola I was shooting pennies with it. It absolutely insane. My buddy bought one and same for him. They make you much better than you are. I have let several people shoot my G34 and all end up buying one. I then bought a G42 and that little prick could shoot incredible tight groups for a pea shooter. I would have kept the G42 but I have 1000's of rounds of 9mm and .380 was getting freaking expensive. I expect the 43 to shoot as well as the 42. I would say for a person that does not shoot much the Glocks are so easy to shoot they are an ideal gun. these was the first rounds out of the 42. I imagine in the hands of someone who actually new what they were doing it would be impressive as hell. I do think they are boring visually.

Love the 43, did a lil trigger work on mine and the wife's and they shoot a lot smoother.

Tru Glo TFX Pro night sights are the way to go on that lil guy.....

Nice gun. I have a Glock 42 and 22 an love them both. For cc I believe the 42 and 43 are awesome. I also have a Ruger LCP and the small frame Glock handles so much better.

My wife fixed hers so it's not so scary.
