I don't own any Glock's, I probably never will. My comment to the OP is if you have enjoyed making it your own personnel firearm and your happy with how it shoots for you then I would say it is a good thing.

I think if you spent $900 to get it just the way YOU like it, and you DO, it was money well spent. I go out of my way to try to get as much of what I want, stock, on a pistol and frequently pay more for the stock model to accomplish that. It is easier with Sigs because they make umpteen versions of everything. That said, I have very few that I have not added something. With G10 grips now going in the over $100 range, even paying more to get just the right grips (stock) has become a consideration. This is the reason I went with the Legion for my latest 226 purchase. I like the grips, I like the sights, I like to have the SRT. I toyed with getting a 226 elite instead, but when I threw in the fact that I would upgrade the sights and grips, the Legion became more affordable.

I wish (and cannot figure out why they don't) Sig made a pocket sized (238 sized) little micro p series in DA/SA. I keep thinking they will and cannot figure out why they don't. I have a 224 and love it but it is NOT a pocket carry gun. The 290 is much closer but not the same trigger? Come on Sig. You built the whole company on the DA/SA trigger. That is what Sig cut its teeth on. Make me one! (I guess it would actually be a single stack so really a "micro 225" is what I am begging for). Many (me) would love that, some would of course hate it and claim it is worthless, but it would make a big splash.

I would take a micro 225, that would be awesome.

His Glock didn't need anything out of the box either. He simply decided to spend money on his preferences.

There are threads on this forum about folks spending hundreds of dollars to upgrade the triggers on their Legions. This has nothing to do with Glock per se, or with polymer guns in general.

Folks mod their pistols, whether its entry level polymers or top-end Legions and 1911s. It's commonplace.

I think that they probably will - eventually. Only because I think they will eventually drop all the nice metal pistols and go entirely polymer,and they will want a tiny polymer single-stack to compete with S&W and Ruger. But they've been slow getting their act together with the entire P320 line and now most of their production capacity is going to get sucked up filling the Army contract. For now, I wouldn't hold my breath.

Thanks everyone! From my searches it seems that the G43 trigger comes in at 7lbs or more stock, which is heavier than most other Glocks. I have heard it was designed like that so it would be a little safer in pocket or purse. With my upgrades it really feels more like a standard break weight( maybe 5 lbs), but I will have to pick up a trigger gauge and verify. I will have to keep an eye on the Ghost connector as someone said. Is there a better more reliable 3.5lb connector for the 43? The overwarch trigger doesn't really do much except for a little take up and a different trigger shape. By that I mean it didn't mess with the pull weight . If sig made a micro Da/sa I would be all over it, but I wanted as compact and light as I could in a 9mm with a decent trigger. I originally was going for the shield, but it is 2 oz heavier and longer in the grip. I will try the mag guts with a flat base after I pick up a extra mag or two. Is it just me, or does everyone else like having 4 or more mags for each gun they own?

Shield Flat base plate vs G43 with +1 Taran tactical



Here is my dog Grace modeling my belly band which the G43 is going to ride in during my runs. She came and sat infront of me like the band was her collar, and she wanted to go out. She wanted to wear it so I put it on her for a picture after I verified it was unloaded( she doesn't care for pictures).

The Dog you don't want to mess with.



As someone asked, I have not noticed any brass to the face from this one. Can't say it won't happen, just hasn't yet in the almost 500rnds I put through her.

I just think it's interesting how quick little things can add up.

I keep a minimum of 4 magazines for each of my pistols - thankfully Glock mags are fairly inexpensive

Your Grace is adorable - and thanks for the +1 Taran pic on the Shield and the 43 - wow I was always under the impression that the Shield was shorter in grip, I am proved wrong! With the MagGuts and flush mag the G43 will be even shorter and same capacity (although admittedly the Taran +1 adds like 1/8")

... For now, I wouldn't hold my breath.
15 years ago, I might have predicted the demise of steel weapons but I now believe they will be made for many years to come. As long as there are those of us preferring steel, I think they will still make them out of steel. After all, Colt made the Mustang XSP in polymer (no steel frame)while Sig decided that 1/2 steel is not enough and is making the 238 in ALL steel (HD) (They are roughly the same weapon.) Although I do not know the exact numbers, I would wager an ice cold Diet Coke that Sig has sold as many or nearly as many HD P238s as colt has sold all polymer mustang XSPs. Just a guess, I may be way off. Clearly, one of the things that those of us who prefer Sigs prefer is steel.

I am in NO WAY holding my breath, but I still cannot figure out why they would not (or have not) made a weapon that would be SO popular? Even a DA/SA p290 would be a huge seller (IMO).

I guess its an inside joke between a couple friends of mine and I then that does not carry well to internet forums. I used to work for a gun dealer who thought you had to dump $100's into a Glock or M&P to make it work "better" Now that being said, he was in the gun and gun parts business so of course he would want to keep that trend alive but yes you are correct in the fact that the only real upgrade ANY Glock needs is a set of real sight, not the plastic ones they come with from the factory.

The one point I make, or see at the very least which I find hilarious, is when someone mods out a pistol, Glock or M&P, then want to sell it for what they have in it and can't seem to understand why the ROI is not there.

Nice build, I agree with you that I wish Sig made something like the Glock 43. We can wish...
