I'm hearing good things about the new gen 5 finish. Anything would be better than the gen 4 finish. I really want a new G43, but I won't have the gen 4 finish. So, I called glock to see when it would be available in the new finish. "No plans to make the G43 with the new finish". So here's the deal. I will not buy a glock until they do. Anyone else feel the same.

Second sentence is false! Not having a 43 is not better than having a 43 with the gen 4 finish if you want one! I got a 43 when they came out cuz so cute, but oddly it was more uncomfortable to AIWB than my EDC 19 (and I’m a lot more comfortable shooting the 19). The shorter length stuck me right on the pelvic girdle; whereas the 19 rides past it in the groove better.

I haven’t had an issue with the gen 4 finish yet and I think it’s a silly idea to pass on a model because of it. If it wears, who cares. As far as carrying it, I agree with Scott, it’s definitely more comfy carrying the g19 appendix IMO, who woulda thought.

I'd love to carry appendix but I always worry about an ND blowing my nuts off

In response to TheSundanceKid...When I worked as a police officer in Washington State, I responded to a call in which a guy stuck a .45 down the front of his pants appendix style. When my partner and I arrived, he was sitting in a chair in his kitchen with a bloody towel draped between his legs and blood all over the chair beneath him. You can probably figure out what happened but I had to take a look for myself and after seeing what that bullet did to that guy's pride and joy I will never carry appendix and stick to IWB or OWB at the 3-5:30 position exclusively. Needless to say that guy was rushed into the ER and eventually had to be airlifted to Seattle for treatment. I never heard what ultimately happened but I don't think the guy was able to function quite the same prior to sticking his pistol down the front of his pants that night.

I showed the Glock 43 to my wife at a gun store and she held and said, this is a girls gun, it's so small. Her S&W is a single stack 8+1 and she likes the feel, said it's similar to the Glock 43. I just bought a G-19 Gen 4 and that feels small to me, the G-43 feel like a toy and my hands are by no means large. Hey, if we all weren't different life would be boring.

I handled an armed robbery once where the guy fired a shot when he left the business. At first everyone thought he was just trying to warn people not to follow. I followed a blood trail for awhile to where it ended. Under the house was the blood soaked money and clothing. Long story short we found him at the hospital with a GSW to his junk. I love a happy ending.

They’re cheap enough guns. If the finish wears, get another one or send it out to be refinished. Life’s too short to be entitled and huffy.

Merry Christmas!

I have no problem with the Gen 4 finish but I'm not buying a G43 until Glock makes a factory 7 round mag for it that I can carry as a spare.

The other thing is that I'm hearing bad things about the Gen 5 finish such as that it's too slick and that it's harder for some people to grip the slide, but you can't always believe what you hear. And I'm not buying a Gen 5 either until they get rid of that stupid front magazine cut-out.
