My G43X. Perfect carry pistol for me. (for now) :)

Everyone likes pictures. Here's a few. Since I haven't spent money the last month or so, I had money to spend .
A whole bunch of little things together, make 1 bigger thing. I loved the 43X bare bones, but after a little time with it, I figured I would doll it up a bit. "Take off the edges" so to speak.
Here's a little list:

Vedder light tuck IWB: Not a new purchase.
I have a couple of these. Only reason I went with Vedder was because it was one of the first that popped up on a search saying they have an adjustable cant. Look at how the handgrip butt goes perfectly vertical with the body line.There's the sweetness.
Kydex is kydex is kydex. I got the "claw" with it. Those things are ridiculously stupid. I don't even know where that thing is laying right now.

Apex trigger:
Stock trigger with those serrations/grooves/etc... were brutal on my finger when shooting. This is nice smooth, wider, flat one.

Tango Down Slide Release:
Whatever you want to call it. I use it for a release. I like how it is "bumped out" at the top, and the serrations on the underside, for a better grip locking it up.

Tango down Slide cover racker thingy?:
Kind of gimmicky, but does make a wee bit difference. I don't slingshot a rack, but I go over the top. This is very subtle, but I can feel it and it bolsters the slide grooves. I like it.

Shield Arms 15 round mags: Self explanatory. I just increased my ammo count 50%. 20 rounds up to 30. Game changer.

Shield Arms metal mag release: Recommended to use with metal mags. Metal mags chew up the stock plastic mag release.

I shot the mags already and worked perfectly. I haven't shot the trigger yet. Waiting until it gets a little warmer up here. I am sure it will make a YUGE difference.

Cheers!

Looks awesome. When I shot someone else's stock 43 I had the same sentiments about the trigger.

Dude, you can't put an aftermarket trigger on a carry gun! The courts will smack you down for making it into a WMD!!!!!


How have the Shield magazines worked?

Initially I thought it was just me, but then I read a lot about how many people changed either the trigger, the trigger connector, or both.

HEy! I called my local police department to see what ammo they use so I can argue that in court!

I put 50 rounds through each and they were perfect. I did have 1 failure to lock back. Since I know what I am doing, I shot the mag 1 handed with no fat thumb to interfere, since I always ride the release 2 handed. The lie detector determined that was the truth!

Yeah I got the whole kit. I guess it's the trigger(naturally) and the trigger bar? and the little flat spring thingy that goes on the other part that goes down inside. LOL . I have no clue what the parts name are

Thanks. I already knew I wanted one to replace my Walther. Just making my decision that much easier.

The bonus for me with the X, is no need for +2 baseplates with "pinky ledges" or whatever to lengthen the grip.

That's my beef with most of the stuff that is thin to carry. I'm no hardcore pro, so I worry about having to instinctively let go with pinky and some ring finger to swap mags whilst screaming and pissing myself in a stressful situation. The PPS is great for me, except for that short grip.
