Yeah, this is my first laser. If I like it I may get one for each of my other two Glocks. My Wife already wants one for our LCP, and maybe her XDS 9mm. I'm still not sure what I think about it. I will say that it's not noticeable, as far as carry goes. It comes on when you grip the pistol and I have it to where it's mostly obscured, by the sights, when you have proper sight picture.I like the sights but I'm just not a fan of lasers... Prefer red dots
I looked at those but, from what I read, CT are the Leupold of the laser world. Also, online reviews are overwhelmingly positive on most CT products, including this one.Add some Talon grips to it and you'll be good to go.
Good choice on the laser. I don't like the Streamlight TLR6 at all, which seems to be what everyone is going with. I've never seen much use for a laser, but if you have to have one, something like the Crimson Trace that you don't have to think about is the way to go.
I think I lucked out on the trigger of mine. I doesn't seem any worse than my 27, which still has the factory connector. I'll probably leave the 43 stock as long as I'm carrying appendix. My boys already draw up, a little, every time I holster the weapon.Mine is set up the same way, TruGlo TFX and green Crimson Trace. Added the Ghost connector and it made a world of difference in the trigger pull. I have the Pearce +1 extension on both mags and have had no feeding issues. Mine stays in a Sticky pocket holster.
Yeah, I'm really liking mine. Until the last few weeks, it has strictly been a BUG, but I've gone to only carrying it, most of the time. I'm not posting my 27 or 22 up for sale, or trade, anytime soon.Nice job Jarhead. I really like my little 43. Don't shoot quite as well with it as I do with my others, but I get close enough. Think my trigger may be the full 8lbs, because I tend to pull low left about 4". I can compensate, but wish it was a little smoother. Mine's bone stock, except for another spare mag and a couple of Pierce +1 extensions. With a spare mag in tow, I feel very well armed with it. I think it'll be one I keep.
Don't do it. I sold my 26 and have regretted it ever since. Had it been a Gen4 it would've stayed for sure.Yeah, I'm really liking mine.

They are both Gen4s and I'm not getting rid of them anytime soon. I am eyeballing those new Lonewolf Alphawolf 9mm conversion barrels for them.Don't do it. I sold my 26 and have regretted it ever since. Had it been a Gen4 it would've stayed for sure.
Out of all the various guns I've owned, I now only have a 19 and the 43. Don't think either of them are going anywhere anytime soon. Both are as boring a shooter as most Glocks are, but, they go bang every time I pull the trigger and cleaning both up takes a very short amount of time. Got one in the bedroom with a tac light mounted and the other is the living room/carry model. Of the 70+ or so handguns I've owned during the last 5 years or so, I think these two fit much better than any of the rest. Can't say I regret buying any of the others, because they were a blast to shoot and a great learning experience, but I'm happier now with what I've got and I don't worry too much about some thug stealing them. Both can be easily replaced for a nominal fee. When I had about 17 or 18 in my mobile home, I worried way to much about them. For some strange reason I don't exactly understand, I shoot the 26 better than anything I've had in my hand, but what I have now makes much more sense. If I could mount a light on a 26, I'd probably still own one, but the 43 fits the rest of that bill pretty nicely. I like it and would recommend it to any one who's recoil sensitive, especially a woman. Right size and very easy to handle.Yeah, I'm really liking mine.

Without a trigger scale I can't tell you what my 43 pulls but it sure doesn't seem any worse than my 27. The 3.5 connector in my 22 is noticeably better than both. I'll probably still upgrade the trigger in those two, eventually.I've had a bunch of Glock and still have about a half dozen. The trigger pull on all them has been around the 5 1/2 lbs that they advertise. I was really disappointed in the 43. I just went and looked at my notes. 14 trigger pulls on my scale averaged 8 lb 9 oz with a variation from high to low of over a pound. After adding the ghost connector and polishing everything 10 pulls averaged 5 lb 8 oz with a variation of 4 oz. It's so much smoother that it feels lighter than that.
Yeah, the Taran +2s are interesting but I'm not sure if they're $40 worth of interesting.I’ve never been a big fan of small autos. About the smallest I thought I would go is a Glock 27 or a Smith and Wesson Model 36. I own several different models of Glock; mostly in .40 and .45. A few months ago I bought a Glock 19 since I didn’t have anything in 9mm and felt like it would be a good addition to my collection. Like my G-23, the G-19 is an excellent EDC pistol, not too big and not too small. I overcame my reluctance towards small autos and recently purchased a G-43. Wasn’t sure I would like it until I took it to the range. I was pleasantly surprised. For a small frame pistol it shoots and handles very well. The only change I’ve made to the 43 is to add Tarran Tactical +2 magazine kit. This magazine works without a hitch. I plan to leave the Glock sights on the 43 for now. I am planning to replace the sights on my 23 and maybe other models with the TruGlo or a similar sight. I have TruGlo’s on my Kimber and Ruger GP-100 and really like them. Much easier to see with current issued aging eyeballs!!!
I have the +1 and +2. No issues. But having trouble justifying buying a second set. They're very nice though.Yeah, the Taran +2s are interesting but I'm not sure if they're $40 worth of interesting.
I finally got the calipers and, hammer. Surprisingly, the sights were nearly centered.(I've also got a brass/nylon hammer and some calipers ordered to fine tune them.)
