      I picked up a 43X (with the Ameriglo sights) a few weeks back... still haven't shot it.

      I hope those 15 rounders are reliable - that's a game changer.

      Blue Label? I didn't want to wait on a BL night sight equipped gun. It was pretty much a wash if I bought a BL pistol and added the sights later, so I just paid "full price" instead.

      thats the problem here in the Peoples Republic of California

      the 43x is not available here outside of the blue label program...

      so i am forced to buy aftermarket sights and install them but as you said before its really just a wash

      wow whats that finish?

      i see the apex flat trigger and truglo sights


      here is mine

      43x vs 26






      also remolded my kydex trigger guard i was using on my 26 so that it fits the 43x now.

      It’s cerakote
      Crimson 1st coat, under black...
      Then used Brillo Pad & pic tools to “scar” it for the battleworn look
      Trigger is from the Glock Store..
      Ultimate drop in (Pyramid) with 6# spring
      The TFX Pro’s are pretty slick
      This is Glock # 7, & the only one I’ve even considered doing this type of aftermarket changes to
      Knew it would be my EDC for a long time,& I HATED the finish on the slide of 43x, & 48...

      Here is my baby tho...
      Took about a year to talk the guy into finally selling to me






      And I just laugh at this pic I took..
      “Glockzilla” making a Gen5 G19 look a little inadequate
      Lol
