Believe it or not......many people want a short pistol that their pinky doesnt hang off of.
Read the thread I was referring to... a +1 extension provides a full grip should you so desire... a short grip provides more concealment should you so desire. As currently designed, the long grip does not provide that flexibility.
After checking all the Glocks out I just bought a new G43 with night sights. Awesome for CCW.
I looked at the G 43,but went with the Sig p365 ,i am very happy with my choice!
Spec sheets lie. I was at LGS and the P11 is a lot closer to the G26 than the 43 or 365. It’s not slim at all. The 43 is really close to the PF9 which I also compared.
No. We have two. 7 rounds plus one.
I actually prefer the g43 over the p365 cause it feels better in my hands and more accurate. The grip of the p365 feels too small for me to get a good grip and I have medium sized hands.
I heard they are very close to releasing a 10 round flush G43 mag very soon after the release of the 15 round G48 mags.
It's always good to have choices!
I carry the 43 98% of the time. I usually pack the P365 for road trips or overnighters. However, the 365 just doesn't work that well during the summer, sand paper grip texture does not feel good on skin. Might carry the 43x more this winter if SA finally ships their 15 rounds mag. HOWEVER, if they come out with a flush fit 10 rounder for the G43, back to the compact.
And a Flush 12rd mag is offered for the P11
Not sure if joking, but...
While I’ve been pretty optimistic about the 15 round G48 mag, being that my 92 Compact mag (also 15 rounds) will slip into a 48, I’m skeptical about a 10 round flush fit G43 magazine. The 43 is narrower. My guess would be 8 rounds best case.
Rubber grip tape fixed the sandpaper effect on my P365, although actual sandpaper applied to the polymer would smooth things out. The grip tape goes on most of my guns.
I still really like my G43, but it took a lot of work (on the gun and on myself) before I could shoot it well.
I own a 43 and got a 48 a few weeks ago. I still carry the 43 on most days. I have realized tho that I can conceal the 48 almost as easy as the 43. Very little difference in concealability.
The 48 will probably take over everyday during the winter months.
I don't think the 43 is obsolete at all. Part of the 43x's current popularity is because it's still relatively new and "hot", especially now that they have black slides.
To me I'm not sure the 43x has any meaningful advantage. The grip is the length of a 19's grip, so why not just carry the 19 and get 5 more rounds standard? The 19 doesn't print any more than the 43x does, that tiny bit of thickness difference doesn't translate to a difference in concealability in my experience.
So yes, the 43 still fills a role that the 43x never can. It's both short in the grip and thin and is concealable in situations where the 43x might not be. Not that the 43x isn't a great pistol, it is. But it doesn't do much for me.
Not sure what to think. A 43 with a 10rnd flush mag or pinky mag will be where its at.
