Glock G43X For Sale -The Glock 43X has the same height as the Glock 19 Gen 5, but that’s pretty much where the comparison stops. Glock built the G19 and the G43X at the same height because they want both guns to be easily concealed.

The Glock 43X only weighs 1.44 lbs loaded and features a light 5.4 lbs trigger pull weight. The G43X is a part of the new Slimline series from Glock that provides the same reliability, dependability, and performance as standard Glock frames, but a thinner slide and pistol grip for optimal concealment in any environment.

Pros & Cons of the Glock 43X

  • Excellent Glock reliability
  • Grips and front cocking serrations offer decent handling
  • Great factory trigger perfect for quick follow-up shots
  • Same old Glock maintenance and take-down
  • Aftermarket abundance of sights and triggers
  • Interchangeability with Glock 43
  • Unique magazine and holster size makes it difficult to find holsters
  • A bit large for a subcompact
  • 10-round capacity might not be optimal for some


Here are some frequently asked questions about the Glock 43X.glock g43x review

Is the Glock 43X a Good Self-Defense Handgun?

Although the 10-round capacity makes it a terrible option as a range toy, the Glock G43X is a vast improvement over the G43 for self-defense and concealed carry purposes. It’s reliable, accurate around the 10-yard range, and conceals just as well as the Glock 43.

The design and ergonomics are perfect if you want a snag-free pistol that can be easily carried in clothing or concealed carry holsters.

What’s the Difference Between the G43 and G43X?

The G43X feels somehow less blocky with its thin frame in comparison to the other Glocks.

It has a longer grip than the G43, and it’s a bit higher with 5.04 inches in comparison to the G43, which has 4.25 inches. Despite this, it’s still just a fraction of the difference and can still be used for concealed carry purposes.

What’s more, the G43X has a 10-round capacity, while the Glock 43 has a 6-round capacity magazine, so this is what makes it a better concealed carry option than the Glock 43.

Speaking of weight, the G43X has an 18.70-ounce weight, while the G43 weighs around 17.9 ounces, both with empty barrels and mags. Once again, a marginal difference.

What’s the Best Ammo for the Glock 43X?

To manage the Glock 43X’s recoil better, I recommend you stick to the Hornady 115-Grain Critical Defense and the Winchester White Box FMJ 115-Grain. If you have more cash to spend, you have the Federal Premium 124-Grain Hydra-Shok for your self-defense rounds.

Are the Glock 43X and Glock 43 Magazines Interchangeable?

Unfortunately, the G43X mags won’t work on the Glock 43 because they are too wide. However, you can use a Glock 48 mag inside a 43X. Since they are a unique build, no other Glock magazines work on these guns, and vice versa.

It’s also worth pointing out that the magazines are not exactly single-stack. They’re a much thinner double-stack magazine that’s also known as a “one-and-a-half” stack.

If you want more round capacity in your Glock 43X, Shield Industries makes a flush-fit magazine with a 15-round capacity. Just make sure you change the mag release button with a metal one because the metal magazines may wear out the plastic magazine catch.

Are Glock 43 and 43x Slides Interchangeable?

Yes, Glock 43 and 43X slides are interchangeable, but it’s better if you use a Glock 48 slide on a Glock 43X. There’s a slight difference in length, but it still works perfectly.
