The Glock 43 has only been around for a short time, but it’s already generating plenty of buzz.
Part of this can be attributed to the Austrian company that makes the polymer-framed, striker-fired pistol. Glock is not short on fans. But the gun itself has plenty to turn shooters’ heads — particularly those who carry concealed.
The single-stack 9mm checks off a lot of boxes for those searching for a slighter piece for regular carry that is still a comfortable shooter. Or those are at least that is the impression YouTuber Mr.GunsAndGear gives in his first time putting the pistol through its paces.
While his initial takes on the G43 are interesting, it’s the end of the video (and his T-shirt) that will catch most shooters’ attention. He lines the new 9mm up against a couple of other popular single-stacks —the Glock 42 and Smith & Wesson Shield — to give a bit of perspective of the pistol’s dimensions.
