Maximize the Performance of Your Pocket Glock? With an Upgraded "Top Half"
With a Brownells Front Cut Slide for the Glock® 43 installed, you'll find your pocket Glock® becomes easier to operate without any change in its reliability or size. The G43's greatest strength is that it lets you carry a pistol with 6 rounds of centerfire punch in an ultra-compact EDC package. The downside is the G43's such a small pistol (barely 6" OAL), you can have trouble getting a firm grasp on the slide to rack it. And if you're under stress or your hands are wet or a little sweaty. Yeah, even more difficult to jack that first round into the chamber.
Our Front Cut Slide gives you up to 60% more grasping surface on your Glock® 43 by adding deep-cut serrations up front that wrap around the top of the slide. This is a big help when making a quick press check of the chamber. Both the front and rear serrations have crisp 90-degree edges that give you excellent purchase, and they're cut to the same depth as the factory grooves - so there's no compromise of the slide's overall strength.
We also offer the Front Cut Slide for Glock® 43 in a "window" configuration with a .863" x .285" window cut in the top of the slide ahead of the ejection port, in place of the top serrations. This aids in barrel cooling, slightly reduces the weight of the slide for faster cycling, and…well, it just looks cool, too.
- Machined from heat-treated & hardened 17-4 stainless steel billet
- Hard, wear-resistant matte black Nitride finish

The Front Cut Slide for Glock® 43 comes with a factory rear sight dovetail and slot for the front sight tenon. It will accept both factory "iron" (actually, plastic) sights and any aftermarket sights that fit the factory cuts.
Upgrade the slide on your pocket Glock today for immediate improvement in its functionality and performance - and your shooting enjoyment.
Brownells Gun Tech™ Note: The Front Cut Slide for Glock® 43 consists of the bare slide only. You will need to retain your pistol's existing barrel (or an aftermarket upgrade) and recoil guide / spring assembly. You'll also need to install a firing pin, which requires a channel liner tool, such as the Rimfire Gunworks tool (#777-100-017).
