glock 26 vs glock 43

The Glock 43 is Glock's single-stack subcompact, eminently convenient to carry. I found the 26 very uncomfortable to shoot because of the grip shape. Thanks for the info. The 43, however, is smaller than the 26, which is already a small gun and was bestowed with the moniker "Baby Glock" upon its release in the 1990s. At 18 bucks a pop for the XGrip, I set up four mags to use with my 26. They’re both pretty compact, even though the 43 is technically smaller. Thank F_ck! The 43X, on the other hand, is darn near perfect. So, how do the Glock 26 and 43 handle? But, in the end, this will be a matter of personal preference. As with every new Glock pistol, it received both praise and hate but it sure flew off the shelves in the local gun stores. That makes them ideal concealed carry weapons since they’re both just over 6 inches long, 4 inches tall, and barely over an inch wide.
