For years, Glock enthusiasts have been been begging the Austrian gunmaker to release a single-stack 9x19mm pistol. Last year at SHOT Show they released the subcompact Glock 42 in .380 ACP, which for many Glock enthusiast was just a appetizer. Earlier in March, Glock posted the images below on their Facebook page teasing the release of a new pistol.
To further fuel speculation, internet forum users have been posting digitally altered images of what the new Glock 43 might look like. Glock is adding to the suspense with a countdown timer on their website, which all but confirms an exciting new product. Last year we included a hypothetical Glock 43 in our list 7 “Shut Up and Take My Money” Guns because of the undeniable appeal of a compact 9x19mm Glock. If the rumors are true, we imagine the Glock 43 will look something like this.
