There’s no doubt that the brand new GLOCK 43 is one of the most hotly-anticipated firearm releases in recent years, and — to the surprise of absolutely no one– it more than delivers. This single-stack 9mm pistol boasts a 3.39-inch barrel with a 9.84 inch twist, a six-round magazine with a large magazine catch, an overall length and height of 6.26 inches and 4.25 inches, respectively, a .87-inch wide slide and a textured beavertail grip. In other words, it takes the concealed carry experience to the next level and it’s comfortable to shoot, as our very own Andre M. Dall’au, Massad Ayoob and Chris Edwards all attested to in their write-ups for the GLOCK 43.
Naturally, a new gun from a big-name manufacturer means there’s inevitably going to be holsters to go along with it, and the GLOCK 43 is no exception. Just over a month after its release, companies like Blade-Tech Industries, CrossBreed Holsters, DeSantis Gunhide and Galco Gunleather have already emerged to offer up holster options that make this easily-concealable pistol comfortable for everyday carry. Check out the gallery above to see what’s out there.
Ed. note: GLOCK 43 holster announcements, including the Blade-Tech Kript, CrossBreed’s Holsters, DeSantis’ 16 holster fits, Galco Gunleather’s collection of GLOCK 43 holsters, Bianchi’s three models for the GLOCK 43 and new offerings from Alien Gear Holsters, Comfort Holsters and Comp-Tac Victory Gear and Kinetic Concealment, are available now to read.
