Glock 43? Let's MagnaPort it!

Somebody asked me how I liked my Glock 43, which was purchased as a summer carry/backup. I absolutely love the size and the quality. Slap a Taran extension mag plate and it is a perfect size.
What I was not super impressed with is the trigger and the muzzle flip. To be honest, I would rather shoot any of the micro-9mm's over it or even my Glock 27.

They really didn't do any work on the connector and the small space changed the geometry enough to impact it negatively. I also installed the Taran connector, and while cleaner it didn't make much of a difference on that initial take up. Even after a quick call and polishing out some of the surfaces leads to an trigger not as nice as say a (gasp) Shield or XDS. But, it is doable, and I see that Lone Wolf now has theirs out.

The little pistol flips a surprising amount in my hand. Again more than some of the competitors including the P938. I fixed that though.

MagnaPort did a spectacular job!! The recoil is negligible - it shoots like a 19 now. The cuts are clean and the blast is vented WELL away from the pistol and the sights.
I also own a 19c and to be honest -  MagnaPort does a much better job.

With some night sites it will make a great summer/backup pistol.
