    That is a Strike Industries +2 on the mag in the pistol.
    It is a Fathers Day gift from my daughters so it will part of the first trip to the range.
    Hopefully before my trip this week.

    Does it have the new connector Mt said they were doing? Nice. Does it carry any different with the extension?

    I was thinking about my next new Glock (I have a GSSF cert) and thought G41, but, I may decide to get a 43 instead. It would be more practical given it can be CC'd where a G41, not. Practicality aspect. Fun factor, I would think, 41 although never shot one. But, fun factor, plus hunting ability, makes me want the G40 as well.

    I will take the dive to 10mm at some point, but may start with a 20 then 29 for my first 10mm's (in the future that is).

    congrats on your 43

    I opted for the +1 mag extensions from Pearce for mine. It fits my hand just right and doesn't stick out when I carry concealed. So far I've got 300 rounds through mine with no malfunctions.

    I also use the Pearce +1 on all 3 mags. I have TroGlow TFX Pro on my 43 and this is my EDC in a BladeTech Klipit holster.Terrific pistol.I carry Federal HST 124 gr.+P as my defensive ammo.

    Yes it has the new connector but the unfired trigger pull measured between 6.5 to 7 lbs. I'll post how it measures after I get more than a few hundred rounds through it.

    After 200 rounds at the range the trigger pull is a steady 6 lbs. On the same Wheeler scale. Shoots nice, groups weren't great but after getting use to it I had no trouble kepping my shots inside 8" at 65 ft. firing as quickly as I could get back on target. 12 to 15 sec for 8 shots. It really feels good with the Strike Indusries +2 extensions and still smaller than my G19. So concealing is no issue for me.

    It seems like that by adding the extension it makes it the same outline demension as the 26. Doesn't that entension cause it to print like a 26?
