The specs in the link say it's a 6+1 capacity......is that all that huge magazine allows ??
OMG FRONT SERRATIONS! Look at your own risk old timers.
Local shop has a few. I like the Vicker's sights, but he's way late to the game on this one.
I've tried his mag extensions too and had reliability issues. Doubt they've changed anything. The asking price is a stretch, but someone will buy it for the serial number thinking it will be worth something extra someday.
Ok what are they actually selling for. No one is paying 683 for a 43 lmao..

Local shop is asking $599.
There is nothing special about the Vickers 43. If it had the RTF2 frame it would be worth a look. But they just added sights and some other throw on crap. Just get a regular 43 and put whatever sights you prefer on it.
The Vickers products are 99% about feeling good and having fun. There is nothing wrong with that, because most of us like to feel good. We should just exercise care so as not to conflate feeling good with better performance. #Sebenza #Surefire
Lipsey's G19. It doesn't shoot a dang bit better than OEM.
There are some on gunbroker.
Picked one up last week from the local mom and pop shop.
Very suppressed with trigger pull. 4.9 pounds right out of the box.
Price was $519.00
Mine says Austria
With large baseplate, 8+1
I paid $519.00
This is true.
I also wish it RTF2.
If you are a fan of the Vickers sights, and if you buy the Vickers 43 at the right price, and if you prefer the Vickers controls and baseplates, it can be a better value than the stock 43. A lot of “if’s”.
Thanks for the info., Pete K. $519 is not bad (especially with those sights), compared to over $600 MSRP.
At $519ish (closer to $500) - I'd probably bite - the sights are worth $100+, the Tangodown controls I tend to like and would put them on, and the slide serrations are more of an aesthetic plus -
My LGS has one for $589 which I will not be biting on, however - although its down on capacity to the Sig P365 its a dead reliable single stack - If I didn't have one and could snag this in the low 500's I'd probably do it -
I get a BL coupon a year with GSSF so $380 for G43 + $48 Tangodown parts (Vickers mag extension is $11) and $100 for sights (less if you want basic Ameriglo, or Truglo Tritium Pro, $115-130 for Truglo TFX Pro or Trijicon HD) you're at about the $520-550 range invested, but you get the front serrations and LAV serial number for free....
I went back to the store that had the Vickers 43 to take a second look at it. After handling it some, I realized that I didn't care at all for the Vickers mag release, so I passed on it. I also don't use the slide lock to release the slide, so for me - the after market Vickers parts are parts that I don't really need/want.
I bought back my old Glock 26 that I had traded at the store a couple of weeks ago instead. Now I am trying to decide if I should pick up the SIG P365 Two-Tone at Cabelas. Its good to have choices...
