    Picked this up for peanuts the other day. Not for carry. Mostly for the range. Thought it made for a colorful Glock photo.

    Want to see it in the pistol.
    And also a range report.

    I don’t have a dog in the fight, but somebody (*cough, cough, Glock, cough) needs to make a 10-rounder for the 43.
    It could even look like the mags for the G-30 and people would still buy them.

    I have some for my G19 and AR9. Not a ton of rounds downrange, maybe 250rds and the mags have worked as advertised.

    I have one ETS. I think it's a 7-rounder. I don't carry it, but I've never had an issue with it.

    My ETS mags, esp. the 12 round mag which I was just starting to use as my backup carry mag, started choking on defensive loads. They all seem to do ok on FMJ.

    That will never happen. Glock wants you to spend $499 on a 43X and not $25 on a 10 round magazine.

    Follow the money.

    I'm just kinda "meh" on the G43 but that's a great picture!

    It's the most colorful mag I've ever owned.

    I found my ETS to be garbage.

    Choices are good. I like my range trips to mirror reality somewhat. I carry the 6 round OEM magazine and use it at the range.

    I honestly paid $5.99 for this red mag. That's the only reason I got it. Got the last one at that price also. I may be garbage. I'll find out at the range, next time I go.
    I'll never carry it, however.

    They have made a 10-rounders for G43, it's called "Glock 43X".

    I have a question for you: what do you think of the grip of the 9-rounder? It sticks out. I'm thinking about making replacement base plates for ETS 9-rounders for Glock 42. It's not the 43, but the problem is similar.
