10 Rounds

Categories: , Product ID: 1598




The second crossover design, Glock innovation improves upon Concealed Carry Perfection with the new Glock 43X!

Based on the same design theory as the popular 19X, the 43X combines the short profile of the 43 slide with the grip length of the ubiquitous Glock 19. The slim, single-stack frame maximizes comfort and concealment for virtually any user.

The lengthened frame also allows for 10 round magazines, a 4 round increase from the Glock 43’s 6 round magazines. Please note that these magazines will only fit the 43X and 48, due to the unique frame sizing.

Finally, the 43X also includes several of the design innovations seen in the Gen5 line, including the marksman barrel and smooth, textured grip.

Chambered in 9mm Luger the G43X features a compact Slimline frame with a black slide with an nDLC finish. The 10-round magazine capacity makes it ideal for concealed carry.


Designed for comfort, The G43X combines a compact-size grip length, a built-in beaver tail and a subcompact-slim slide for a comfortably balanced, versatile grip that´s ideal for a variety of users.


The frame incorporates elements of the Gen5 and Slimline series such as the short trigger distance, a frame with a built-in beavertail, a reversible magazine catch and the incredibly accurate, match-grade GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB) and precision-milled front serrations.

The Glock 43x has a 10-round capacity considering the height of the gun which is similar to a Glock 19 that seems somewhat substandard.


One thing to take into account is the Glock 43x is under an inch thick. The Glock 19 is 1.2 inches thick at the widest point.

So, the Glock 43x is much slimmer than the Glock 19, yet it still allows you to get all three fingers on the grip of the gun.


Something that shorter guns like the Glock 43 and the Sig P365 do not.


Glock uses its standard polymer-coated metal magazines which is one of the reasons it can’t fit any more ammunition than 10 rounds in a gun of this size.

Aftermarket Magazines

Shield Arms makes a 15 round all-metal magazine body for the Glock 43x that holds 15 rounds instead of the factory 10.


Those 15 rounds make the size to captivity ratio better than similar guns like the Sig P365XL and the Springfield Armory Hellcat.


Now one thing to take into account here is the Glock factory mags cost 20-25 dollars in most places, while the Shield Arms mags cost close to forty dollars.


So, there’s definitely an increased cost using the shield arms but they have a great reputation from most sources and in my personal testing I have not had any reliability issues with them.


The cost is similar to what Sig P365 and Sig P365XL magazines costs but they are more expensive than the Springfield Hellcat Magazines.


One thing to note is if you’re planning on running the Glock Shield Arms magazines for the 43x, then you’ll want to add a metal mag catch.


As the magazine release on the Glock 43x is plastic and the metal magazines will wear out that part over time. With the Glock OEM magazine, there are multiple extensions offered.
