I bought 3 Shield mags and the installed Shield mag catch.
Everything ran fine, no failures of any kind.
Put about 200 rds of various ammo thru it using both stock and Shield mags.

But it just doesn't excite me to shoot it as much, as say my G17s, G21, or any other Glock I own.
Not sure what that says about me.
I kinda feel the same way about my G19..

Maybe the single stack of the 43X, maybe the size in general, IDK.
Maybe it will grow on me in time.

For now I guess I'll just put it back in the safe and add it to the kids inheritance collection.

But I did buy another Glock.. Big Grin


I just bought one; I haven't fired it yet, but I really like the little gun.

^after getting my 43X I put my G19 in the safe. I love how thinner it is, I like that the shield arms mags still give me 15 rounds. It’s what a small light gun should be.

I amazed that Glock hasn’t pumped out several new guns in this same size in 45, 40, & 380…

Glock did.

The G30S, G36, and G42.

Glock did.

The G30S, G36, and G42.


30S=35mm wide
36 =30mm wide
42 =25mm wide

Of those only the 42 is the same width as the 43x. And that was what I was referring to. I should have been more clear. My 1911 is 30mm with the grips, but there are thinner grips to be found…

Glock should take the 43 frame and make single stacks for 45&40 as well.

I’m sure they would sell, but my first thought is that would be a snappy gun in .45 and .40.

Who knows? Maybe that’s what they’ll be offering next. I’m definitely with you about the size and thinness. My G48 has become a quick favorite. I’ve had a 42 since they were first released and I’ve been a fan the whole time.

I never said anything about the same width. You're not going to squeeze a 45 into the .43 frame.

The handguns I mentioned are the single stack versions.

By the time you squeeze anything larger than a 9mm into a frame the size of the the G43, the limited magazine capacity suffers more. The G36 isn't exactly a high capacity frame, but small enough for .45, single stack.

I'd love to see something tiny in .357 sig, but in the Glock, the G33 is already a hand full, and about as small as it needs to go.

My Shield in .40 split after a few rounds. My XDS is comparatively small, but limited. I don't see a .40 size G43 as a big seller, if they could squeeze it in; I'm sure if Glock thought it would be, it would be out already.

I had previously gotten rid of my 19 because I just didn't shoot it as well as I thought I should but the 43X I shoot exceptionally well (for me anyway)

Oddly, I shoot my 23 well, still not as good as the 43X - but now the 23 sees little use. I also stopped for the most part even carrying my S&W Bodyguard 380 - the 43X is bigger than the bodyguard but still easy enough to conceal multiple ways.

I would be very interested in a 40 in a 43X-ish size - even less rounds and all - most definitely

My wife has a 43X now as of a couple weeks ago and prior to that was a J frame and Ruger LCP gal

The shield arm mags I finally got and are good to go and really add to the overall great 43X.

Mike, so have I and a handful of my friends here on CPD! I'm amazed at how quickly I came to like this lil gun.

I am the same. I have my 48, 43, and 42 but I carry my 43x far more than anything else.

I also have a 17.4 and 19.5 and my duty 45 MOS but that little 43x. The only I changed was I put an OEM smooth trigger shoe, night sights, shield arms mag catch and use shield arms mags. I carry a gen2 shield arms mag with +5 as my reload.

There are guns of that size out there. The Shield comes in .40 and .45. Springfield has an XDs in .45. All are straight single stack. If you want small and thin in those calibers, you can get it.

The G36 sort of plays in this category, but seems to be a bit bigger.

The Gen 5 19 is pretty sweet. To me, much improved over the Gen 3 and 4. The trigger is better and I was surprised to find I prefer the finger groove grip.

I put a minus connected in my Gen 4s and the was looking at an Apex kit. With the Gen 5 I feel no need for either.

My G48 and G45 needed some connector swapping, but the 43X is fine as is.

I have a Gen 5 17 MOS (with FDE frame which i think was a limited Lipsey gun) with a KKM barrel and a gen 5 34 barrel, with a trijicon 3.25 RMR on it.
I have 2 43x's, one is the not often seen MOS version and i put a swamp Fox optic on it and man does that thing come up on target fast.
I have 2 42's (one is really for my wife to learn on and I carry one)which is a great pocket carry gun.
The 43X is a great 9mm for carrying.
Yes i will buy lots of Glocks

Picked up a Glock 20 Gen4 10mm at Buds on Thursday. The weird part is that it feels smaller in grip than my 19 Gen5 which actually feels more blocky. Can’t wait to shoot this thing.

Picked up yet another Glock yesterday. This time it was a 44 as I can shoot it in the rimfire class in GSSF. Hope it runs well as I’ve read they were hit and miss initially.

I'm still looking for a P229 (ad slipped to Pg 2 of Classifieds), but decided that I didn't want to be the only SigForum member who didn't own a G19. Picked up a G3 NIB today!

There's a 20% coupon enclosed for when I register the warranty, which I think I'll use to get some night sights. Other than that and maybe a 25 cent trigger job, otherwise I intend to leave it stock.
