    Who carries a G43x? Do you like it?
    I'm thinking of getting it instead of the G43. Thoughts?

    I like it. I am waiting on the black version.

    My concealment issue is the grip printing. I carry the 43. The 43x would just make it more difficult to carry without printing. IMHO...

    Luckily in Texas we don’t have to worry about printing.

    Do you have a mag extension or run with the flat bottom factory mag?

    The 43X is virtually the same length as the 43 with a +2 extension.

    The 43x grip “feels” better than the G43 with the magazine extension. Don’t you agree?

    Yes. I bought my 43 awhile back. If buying now I’d go with the 43X, which I bought my girlfriend.

    I love the 43X, my wife carries one in a CrossBreed minituk with no issues.
    There is a company named Shield Arms that is developing a 15rd magazine for the 43x and 48 ;)

    Thanks. I shot one at the range and it felt great, shot great. Can’t wait for Glock to come out with the black slide version.

    I shot the 43 and hated the grip because the magazine was a little lose where my hand rested on it. This made the gun feel not solid. Glad I rented it and tried it. 43x will be my choice.

    Was looking at the 43x last night but after a little search online and will probably go with the 26 and a Pacmar extension. 12+1 rds. maybe a little fatter but it's like a baby G19. We'll see though might just stay with my XDE.

    The 43 with extensions never felt right to me. I now carry the 43x and it feels great in hand and carries really well in appendix position.

    Glock makes its own 12 rounds magazines for the G26.
    Glock factory magazines, nothing better than that. I have a few for my G26.

  15. I looked at both, both were the same $ at the LGS I frequent..43X felt really good in the hand BUT, I like the versatility of the 43 when I wear 'tighter' clothes..use a Pearce +1, and it conceals better than the 43x..if I want 10+1, I have a mag extension..YMMV and all that.

    Love mine, felt natural the second I put it in my hand and shot it. Sold my G26 G4 right away. You will love it, would prefer a black slide but doesn’t matter.

    yeah, i fell for it...
    I bought the 43X, it sits in my gun safe now.
    Went back to old faithful, G43 w/7+1(pearse).
    I didnt like how the gun printed with that longer grip.
    I find it very annoying how the mags stick so far out of the grip too.

    If i need more than 7+1, and 3 extra 7rd back-up mags, i`m probably in bigger trouble anyways.

    lol.... yeah, i live in a communist blue state where mag capacity is restricted on us.
    As the NY UN-Safe-Act does NOT protect US, we carry very heavy here!
    If Adolf Cuomo had his way, only illegals will be able to carry.

    My main IWB rig is a Shield 45 w/3 BUM`s
    My 43 is my ankle gun w/3BUM`s on the opposite ankle
    My truck gun is a Glock 29 (attached to my console) w/3 BUM`s.

    John Wick... guns, lots of guns! ;)
