    I bought one, love it! Does exactly what its suppose to do, goes bang, boolit enters the Definitely a nice shooter. Not a hiccup or failure in 500rds. Uses all my G43 holsters. The silver slide easily dirty`s, but it wipes right off. I think people are boiling over in their brains about the silver slide. Most claim its gets dirty. DUH! Its silver! Its GOING TO show the dirt! Other than that, grip feels great. Recoil is also alot more manageable than my G43. If you`re interested, i wouldn`t hesitate buying one. My next one will be the G48, just because. The triggers arent to bad in my opinion, its a glock trigger, i`m satisfied with it...YEP!

    After copious fondling at the NRA in Indy my wife bought a 48 and I bought a 43X. Shooting them tomorrow. They are good pointers and demonstrate all the traits that make the glocks awesome.

    I purchased a Glock 43X and went out and shot it for the first time, putting 100 rounds (American Eagle 124 grain FMJ). Little bit getting use to, but certainly fits my hand a lot better than my M&P Shield 9mm. Trigger a little gritty and definitely around a 6 lb trigger pull weight...just an estimate on my part. Purchased a Bravo Concealment OWB kydex holster and got a free 1-mag pouch. I have Bravo Concealment for my Glock 19 and love it. Thinking of purchasing Glock Store Pyramid Trigger Kit for the 43X. I installed their titanium coated trigger safety plunger and Double Diamond trigger connector and it really improved the trigger on my Glock 19. Appreciate any thoughts or comments. And FYI...I train with American Eagle 124 grain FMJ and use Federal HST 124 grain JHP LE for carry. Both have the same ballistics...muzzle velocity/muzzle energy (1150/364). Shoot those in my Glock 19/43X, Shield, and my CZ P10C.

    I have held the G43X and the fit is fantastic! If I buy a new hand gun it would be it.

    Bought my first pistol in April, a g42.
    Took a basic firearms class and fired the gun the same day with supervision.

    Eventually put 500 rounds through it and liked it. Got a wild hair about 2 weeks ago and traded it in for a silver slide 43x.
    Much better fit for my big hands but it turns out that I’m not as accurate with the 9x19mm rounds as I was with the 9x17mm rounds. Maybe it’s just the extra recoil is a little bit intimidating to me after firing the smaller gun?
    Anyways, if I don’t improve my grouping I might trade back down. I’d like to see them release a 42x. 9+1 or 10+1!

    I bought one (Ameriglow NS) and love it. it's perfect for daily concealed carry. currently have it loaded up with Underwood 90 grain + p Xtreme Defender it's an awesome combo. Also if you're interested in a holster Vedder makes a really nice AIWB holster, a little pricey but definitely worth the money. Good luck!

    So I did it. Sold the 43x which I couldn’t hit the bullseye with. Bought a new 42 today and went out to put the first 100 rounds through it today. Shot so accurately I was able to carve the 2” red bullseye out of the target at 5 yards. Super confidence inspiring,

    Just bought a 43x two days ago. It is going to replace my old Kahr CM9 as my EDC. Not as accurate with it .....yet...need to fine tune a few things, but after shooting it a couple of times I see a lot of potential. Am going to miss the smooth as butter trigger the Kahr has, but the lighter weight and 4 extra rds makes the 43x a great option for a carry firearm.
