Today Glock, Inc. announced the release of the new Glock single stack slimline 9mm pistol, the Glock 43. The G43 is the most highly desired and anticipated pistol release in Glock's history. Designed to be the answer to everyday concealed carry needs, the G43 is ultra-concealable, accurate, and comfortable for all shooters, regardless of hand size. 

"The G43 is the most exciting product release to date because it addresses a variety of issues that many shooters face with pistols in the concealed carry category," stated Glock, Inc., VP Josh Dorsey. "It will be the pistol of choice for law enforcement and civilians. The G43 sets a new standard for concealed carry pistols."

A true slimline pistol, the frame width of the G43 is just over one inch and the slide width measures only 0.87 inch. The overall length is 6.26 inches. For those who have smaller hands, the trigger distance is only 2.6 inches, making it ideal for functionality.

The single stack magazine holds 6 rounds and is the perfect concealed carry pistol for both duty and civilian use. The G43 is engineered to the same superior standards as all Glock pistols and the reliability instills confidence for all lifestyles.

The G43 will debut at the NRA Annual Meeting, April 10-12, 2015, in Nashville, TN, at the Glock booth (#633).
