GLOCK 43

Postby MARINE DIVISION TWO » Mon Aug 17, 2015 8:31 am

Sadly waiting on SCCY to produce a similar firearm like the Glock 43 and it has not happenend not even a breeze of a word from SCCY.I was able to get the Glock 43 for $389 OTD LE Blue Label ! I retired my SCCYs to just range shooter because the 43 fills every niche and not issues feedsall ammo and accurate as a target 22 at 10 yards,so accurate made one hole at that distance,only wish would be for two more rounds in the magazine.Not bashing SCCY I have been pleased for a long time with their products but needed a definitively more dependable CCW !

Other than some mention of a ghost gun called MPX-9 back in 2006-ish I don't think SCCY has ever mentioned developing a single stack 9.

Anybody waiting for one from SCCY should probably go find one from another manufacturer.

MARINE DIVISION TWO - Congrats on the new Glock. I hope it works well for you.

What's the advantage of the Glock? Is it slimmer?

I'm assuming double stack is the magazine is two bullets wide, correct?

Personally I'd rather Sccy made a larger model. I realize small guns are popular now but they've got that one covered already. If they made a full size then they'd have something different to offer.

My SCCY shoots fine-----with brand X ammo---tap the pin back in after 20 rds---push the hammer over so it wont drag on the ejector and lots of lube on recoil assembly .............................but need a definitively more dependable CCW

The Glock 43 is slimmer,single stack 6 rounds ( would prefer 8 have to wait on an magazine extension soon ) Conceals very well,Recoil is lighter than all other sub compacts,and accurate 2-3 inch groupings dead on at 15 yards.Prices have come down since introduction averaging $450 Got mine for $389 Blue Label L E Discount.Recomend that if you get the chance try it out at the range !

Gotcha, sounds like the Sccy is a Camaro and the Glock is the Corvette perhaps.

A co-worker has a full size Glock that I plan on borrowing soon.

Congrats on the G43 OP! Got any pics? I picked up the G42, about two months before the G43 came out...sigh. I am keeping the G42 though because I love the little bugger! I carry it in the warmer months, and my double stacks for colder weather.

Love my G43. I agree with you on excluding any ccw that doesn't perform even once. All it takes is one time in a bad situation.

Well, we practice malfunction drills for a reason. However, when a firearm acquires a reputation (backed up by personal experience, if need be) for not performing, it's best relegated to range toy status, IMO.

We've got a gun show coming up here in Orlando in July and looking to pick up a Ruger LC9s Pro. I've handled one at Academy and it is sweet. Small, thin, light. It's just that at most places they are in excess of 400 bucks but that's what I'm getting to replace the SCCY as my carry.

I put the Pearce +1 extension, have a couple hundred rounds in with no hitch. It adds about 2mm to the rear grip length but nothing to the front (compared to the Glock pinkie extension). The Pearce was something like $10-$15 bucks.

Makes the 43 an 8 round gun, slim, and anvil reliable.

We have a Glock 43; which is a gun that fits my wife's hand nicely. I put the Pearce +1 extensions on each of the magazines and we haven't had any problems with it. We've probably put 500 rounds through it and it seems to like any ammo that we feed it. I have noticed that I have the same problem shooting it, as I do with the SCCY though; which seems to be my grip and shooting to the left. It must be the lighter gun; which I don't seem to have the same problem with on my other heavier guns.
