Range report: G36 vs G43

Rented a Glock 43 to compare to my G36. The 36 has fed everything I've tried. Both were totally reliable, including one handed and weak hand shooting. The G43 made smaller groups.
They both recoil about the same with standard ammo. 45 ACP 230 grain have noticeably more recoil than a 185. The 43 is a lot slimmer than the 36. Might buy a 43 for summer carry.

Both are completely reliable, and more accurate than you are. 43 is much smaller and more easy to conceal.

I ended up with my wife's 36. She didn't like the double stack feel of my 26, but loved the 36. She usually used 185 grain not the 230 at the range. Then we both handled the 43 and guess what she carries now, lol. So the 36 is my pocket and range gun until all the 45 ammo is gone. I still haven't decided between 36/26 oh well... She does share "her" 43 at the range, nice!!! I think the 36 as my "trunk" gun and the 26 as my EDC.
