I was cleaning my 43, figured I'd share some pics. I've added a Vickers extended slide release (hated the stiff original), Vickers tactical slide racker (It's often cold here, and I'm wearing gloves), and Talon tape. I'm smitten with the XS Big Dot 24/7s, this is the first gun I've ever used them on. I've previously only used 3 Dot Trijicons for NS. Almost didn't get the Big Dots, but I took a chance when I saw a sale with free S&H, and I'm glad I did. That's a Pearce +1 extension, with Talon grip on it, and I also have Vickers +2s (not shown). I don't intend to do another damn thing to this gun. Just shooting and practing from here on out, since it doesn't need anything else.

I was gonna post this in a Glock Porn thread, but I wanted to highlight the XS Big Dots and Vickers slide racker. I'm wondering if anyone else has either, and their opinions on them. I know I've been very happy with both additions.

Have had a 43 for about two months now. It's totally stock and totally reliable. Can't say that I like the Glock sights and have been thinking about the big dot like you have. Do you have a sight removing tool? How did you change them out?

I took it to my LGS. I don't have any sight tools, and it cost me $15 to have it done.

You can do the front sight yourself (easy) and if you have the right tools the rear can be done by drifting them out. Youtube videos will show you how.

There was some internet chatter that implied the rear required some filing and whatnot. I'm handy enough, but since I didn't have right tools and was impatient, LGS seemed the best bet to get it done right. One day I'll invest in a rear sight tool and handle sights myself, but it wasn't today!

Very nice I have XS Big Dots on two of my carry firearms and currently carry my G17 with them. For my 66 year old eyes, they are perfect. I don't use them for dead center BULLSEYE shots. I am more concerned with the defensive capabilities of putting a BG down. I rarely miss center mass, up to 17 yards. (I understand at over 25 yards you have to raise the sights a bit, but at 25 yards these old eyes are not that great so I wouldn't take the shot at that distance in most scenarios .)
