The Glock 43 is all the buzz right now. I got to shoot one of the first ones on the market. This podcast are my thoughts on the gun.

Sponsor of the Day Sparks Firearms is a great firearms shop in San Antonio specializing in Self Defense and Tactical Guns. Sparks stocks just about everything you can think of in self defense guns and can order you anything you want. The staff is there to help you get the right gun for you. Most of them are combat vets and firearms enthusiast that just want to help you get the right gear to defend yourself.


Podcast Outline:

Fired the first one in the shop yesterday.


  • Same as a G26 only slimmer
  • 2 Mags, one flush fit and one with a bigger base plate to get a bigger grip
  • Looks like a Glock Photos Here


  • Small and Thin
  • Feels smaller than a G26 but a log bigger then a G42

Fit and Finish

  • Looks like a Glock
  • Feels like a Glock
  • Nothing Different
  • Textured like a G42

Weight feels the same as a G26 but more then a G42

Handling: It’s like a Glock


  • Trigger is a little heavy
  • Recoil is heavier then expected closer to a 40 G27 then a G26
  • Thumbs forward grip made it hard to control
  • Thumbs wrapped under gave me more control but less accuracy
  • Accuracy was incredible
  • 50 Yard steel 5 for 5
  • My .38 LCR snub only 4 for 5
  • Different mags didn’t seem to make a difference
  • Compared to a G17
  • Compared to a G42


  • Sell a lot
  • Die hard Glock guys will praise for ever
  • Better small guns on the market
  • G42 is my choice
