Single Stack 9mm Glock, Model 43, Finally

glock 43

Last year, the Glock 42 was unveiled with much fanfare. I made the case why the pistol in .380 auto was ok for concealed carry purposes. But that a single stack 9mm similar in size to the 42 would be even better. I whined and complained about how Glock needs to listen to the people and get ‘er done. I mean, every glock lovin’ CCW holder I know says the same thing,”If Glock ever came out with a single stack 9mm, I’d buy it.” Well, they finally listened. Enter the Glock 43.

The 43 has almost the same dimensions as it’s smaller (but older) brother. It’s only an inch wide, which is one of my biggest requirements for carrying concealed. The 43 has the same simple, yet dependable features as all the other Glocks. Same trigger, sights, disassembly, magazine release, etc……

Also, because of the fine tuning of the spring, the pistol has been rumored to have a little bit softer perceived recoil than the average 9mm its size.

Glock says that the 43 is its biggest release to date. Considering the history of this gun-making giant, that’s a huge statement. Maybe they’re right.
