I’m shopping around for a G43 and I’m seeing what appear to be several different models. Specs look identical, but product photos, UPC number, and price are different. For example, one retailer I’m looking at has three separate listings for 43s with price variance of over $100. And it’s not some custom finish or anything, they’re all basic black.

The only difference I can see is the UPC numbers here: 764503913358, 764503002533, and 764503036866.

Does anyone know the difference and what would warrant spending $100 more for one over the other?

The Glock Manufacturer Part Number (aka SKU) is more useful for figuring out the configuration of a gun. My friend Pat Richards, aka 58Sniper created an amazing resource for interpreting the sku numbers https://glockcollector.info/2019/01/11/product-number-breakdown/


Searching for the UPC numbers, I found the MPN - UPC: 764503036866 MPN: UI4350701
U= US
I= Fixed or Adj sight (further defined later)
43= Model
5= 5.5lb trigger
0= Standard Pistol
7= Glock Night Sights - this is why this pistol costs more
0= Standard Options
1= 10rds or smaller mags/white label


764503002533 = PI4350201
P= Austria
I= Fixed or Adj sight (further defined later)
43= Model
5= 5.5lb trigger
0= Standard Pistol
2= Fixed - these are the standard polymer sights
0= Standard Options
1= 10rds or smaller mags/white label

764503913358 = UI4350201
Same as above except made in US

What you are missing is UI4350202 which is the Blue Label sku - if you are not familiar with Glock’s blue label program, it is for law enforcement but members of GSSF receive a coupon each year of membership for the purchase of a gun from the blue label program. For example - the G43 GSSF price is $380

www.GSSF.pro

So it looks like the price difference you have seen is due to night sights vs standard sights. The Blue Label price difference is due to a special program.

Hope this helps!
