    Question: G43

    Are all G43's USA made or are there Austrian models as well???

    I'm planning to use my GSSF certs in the coming weeks and was wondering if I should use one for G43.....I looked on GB and the ones I saw had USA stamped.

    I'mt thinking maybe G34 and G41 MOS using my certificates. But, I would like to pick up a G43 too.

    Add: I recieved a Lone Wolf catalog yesterday and it has slides in it. I need a 10mm slide for a grey frame I picked up about a year ago and have not done anything with it.

    I think I would like to do a G40 build with it. My FFL called and told me he can get me a G29 for $529 out the door. This was a couple weeks back during the holidays and I had to pass then given Christmas and my property taxes are due. So, could not swing it then.

    He may have it available now and I'm gonna call and see.

    Thanks. Every Glock I own is Austrian except a recent G19C gen 4 I got my hands on. It's USA.

    I wanna stick to Austrian (except a G42, which is way down on my list). There was a time I wanted USA Glocks, but, since changed my mind.

    I'll keep looking for the Austrian 43.

    If the serial number starts with "A" i.e. AXXX-XXX, it is US made. Austrian made start with "B"

    My blue label G43 SN starts with ZWZ### and is Austrian, so it must not be as simple as A=US and B=Austrian.

    My blue label 43 starts with a B and has a 7 number serial #. Maybe the older 43 had the old 6 number and the change came when production increased? This is just a guess.
