- Glock 43 Information
The Glock 43 may go down in history as the most popular pistol the Austrian company has ever made. As one might expect, a lot of holster makers are jumping in the market with concealed carry rigs of all types.
I’ve assembled an ever-growing list of scabbards for the G43 handgun. They are listed below by brand, and then models available under each brand. As new manufacturers and models are introduced, I will add them in the appropriate sections.
As with all of my other holster lists, if you see one that I’m missing, feel free to contact me directly or leave a note in the comments section below.
Also, please leave your feedback on these rigs in the comments. I know that other readers and I really appreciate hearing how some rigs are working, and what different people recommend. I know that feedback on rigs on the Glock 42 holster page led to two manufacturers revising the existing rig to better suit customers’ needs. I can’t think of a better outcome.
A Note About G42 Holster Compatibility
The G43 and G42 pistols are similar, but they are not the same. The 9mm gun is both wider (+0.08″) and longer (+0.32″) than the .380 handgun. As a result, some holsters designed for the G42 will not fit its bigger brother.
As a general rule, nylon and leather rigs may work with both guns. However, I would expect that any Kydex rig would not due to the tighter tolerances. Additionally, any scabbard made for the G42 with a security feature is not likely to work as intended with the G43 pistol.
Alabama Holster Company
With a full range of carry rigs for the G43, the Alabama Holster Company might have what you are looking for. The company offers a variety of IWB, OWB and pocket holsters for the little 9mm pistol. The company backs the rigs with a 30-day return policy and a lifetime warranty. The only question I have for these guys is Roll Tide or War Eagle?
Alien Gear Holsters
Alien Gear makes hybrid-style IWB holsters and offers fits for the Glock 43 pistol. I found the company’s holsters were comfortable and did the job at an affordable price. Check out my review on the Cloak Tuck 2.0 here.
Long time holster maker Bianchi is making a pair of concealed carry rigs for the new G43. The first is an inside-the-waistband holster that is made of leather and uses a clip to attach to the belt. It is called the Professional. Make sure you order size 9A.
The second carry holster offered by Bianchi is the Triad ankle holster. This is a holster made of synthetic materials with a padded back. I’ve not used these, though I’ve been told they work well. Make sure you get size 12.
Blackhawk offers a number of inexpensive synthetic holsters for the Glock 43 pistol. These include the recently introduced A.R.C. IWB holster and a whole line of nylon rigs.
The Appendix Reversible Carry, or A.R.C., is a holster made of plastic that is softer than Kydex. This allows the rig to bend slightly to match the contours of the body, yet retain enough rigidity to securely hold the gun. The holster can be adjusted for ride height, cant and belt size. Plus, the holster can be reversed and set up for left-handed users also. These rigs carry a MSRP of only $22.45. (Note: You can read my review of the A.R.C. holsters here. I highly recommend the A.R.C.)
The SERPA is one of the more famous holster designs from Blackhawk. Fortunately, the company is now offering a fit for the G43 pistol.
In the nylon line, one of the more popular rigs is the company’s pocket holster. This simple holster keeps the handgun upright in the pocket and hides its outline. There is a rubber-like strip that runs around the outside of the holster to keep it in the pocket when the gun is drawn. The last thing you want is the holster to come out with the gun if you need it to defend yourself.
I have a hard time recommending this next rig to anyone except those on the tightest of budgets. It is an open top, synthetic holster designed for inside-the-waistband carry. It has no retention and it folds flat if drawn, preventing re-holstering. It uses a plastic clip to hold the entire package in place. It is cheap though: less than $15 in many places.
Ankle holsters are great for back up guns and deep concealment. Blackhawk makes an ankle holster that is pretty good for both, though I’ve found it a little uncomfortable over a thin sock. I found wearing this rig on top of a thick winter sock or a duty boot works best for my needs. These can usually be picked up for less than $30.
Another back up gun carry option for police officers is the body armor holster. This lightweight rig is made of sueded nylon and fits over the straps of a bullet resistant vest to provide a pouch for the G43. I’ve used another company’s version of this holster for many years. As far as I can tell, this is a nearly identical product and should work very well.
BluePrint Holsters makes IWB rigs for the G43 that are made of Boltaron. Boltaron is a synthetic material that is similar to Kydex, but with properties that some people prefer (increased heat tolerance, etc.) The company also makes custom molds for their holsters instead of using a simple Blue Gun. In theory, this will provide a more precise fit.
Bravo Concealment is a popular brand with many in the shooting community. Though I’ve not used one, I hear they are good quality rigs. Of course, being made in Texas can’t hurt either. For the G43, the company makes four different holsters:
- BCA (Bravo Concealment Adaptive) – an OWB that can covert to IWB
- RTT (Range Time Tactical) – another OWB that can be used as an IWB
- ACER DG2 – an IWB (only) holster that can be lined with suede for increased comfort (Ed. note – As of late September 2015, this line of holsters has been discontinued.)
- DOS (Drop Out of Sight) – another dedicated IWB carry rig that rides very low for better concealment
Can Can Concealment
This is a company that makes concealed carry rigs for women. The designs are fairly specialized and look very effective. I have not tested any of the company’s products since I am not the target user. However, I am arranging to have a woman test a few of the Can Can products for review on this site.
Sport Belt – This appears to be an interpretation of the belly band. It rides around the hips and offers a number of storage options in addition to the firearm. Hook and loop material fasten the elastic band to the body while rare earth magnets add a level of retention to the firearm beyond friction alone. The rig does not need a belt or any special clothing.
Hip Hugger Classic – This rig is similar to the Sport Belt above, but appears to be smaller for both easier concealment and more compact firearms. Instead of using rare earth magnets, this rig uses non-slip Tacti-Grip to help the gun stay in place. Since this rig is not designed specifically for jogging, cycling and other physically intensive activity like the Sport Belt, the Tacti-Grip should provide more than enough gun retention.
The Hip Hugger Classic is available in plain black or with colored accents like pink.
Garter Holster – These rigs attach to the thigh to conceal a firearm under a skirt or dress. The rigs use rare earth magnets to ensure pistol retention in the holster. Purple, blue and pink accents are available if desired.
While the Garter Holster is ready to go as-is, Can Can Concealment does offer a matching Garter Belt to help displace some of the weight and guarantee the rig does not slide down the leg. These are available in black and come in a variety of sizes.
I’m afraid I’m new to CNC Holsters, but the owner reached out to me to offer a rig for review. I hope to have time to do this so I can let you guys know what I think. In the meantime, you should probably check out their site to see what they have to offer. Right now, the company is making five different holsters for the G43. They are the:
- Lightning (IWB)
- Mig-25 (IWB)
- Harrier (OWB)
- Raptor (OWB)
- Stratofortress (OWB)
Cook’s Holsters is now selling a variety of rigs that will fit the G43. These include the:
- paddle holster
- OWB holster with adjustable belt clip
- boot holster
- tuckable IWB
- small of back IWB
- IWB holster with adjustable belt clip
- comfort series OWB/IWB
- appendix carry
These rigs range in price from $47.95 – 74.95.
A favorite of many shooters who like a hybrid holster, CrossBreed Holsters is now making the majority of their rigs for the G43 now. This includes the company’s ankle rig, SuperTuck and MiniTuck. Pricing varies across the line.
Custom Carry Concepts
Custom Carry Concepts, or CCC, offers a number of options for the latest 9mm Glock pistol. I’ve not had my hands on any of them, so I cannot offer an opinion on how well they perform. However, you can check them out for yourself here.
Dara Holsters is now making holsters for the Glock 43. According to the company, the IWB, OWB, Action Sport and tuckable holsters will all be made for the new pistol.
Dara makes quality Kydex rigs. I have two for the S&W Shield, and I’ve gotten great use out of them. I recommend checking this company out.
Long-time holster maker DeSantis Gunhide is currently making several rigs that will fit the Glock 43 pistol. Let’s take a look at what they are currently offering.
For deep concealment, an ankle holster is tough to beat. The DeSantis Apache uses a wide elastic band to secure the gun to the leg, while a large patch of sheepskin buffers the gun’s hard edges from the flesh. These rigs tend to be very comfortable. The company makes these for both right- and left-handed shooters. I would not expect to pay more than $45 for these.
When I still served my community as a police officer, I always carried an extra gun or two on my person. One of the ways I carried a back up was in a vest, or body armor, holster. I almost exclusively used an Uncle Mike’s (see more on that one below,) but I see that DeSantis is making one that looks a little nicer.
The DeSantis N82 vest holster is navy blue, so it might be a problem for someone carrying under a light colored shirt. However, at less than $20, it looks like a good buy.
My favorite DeSantis holster is the Nemesis pocket holster. These synthetic rigs have been refined over the years and are a top notch option for carrying your G43 in a pocket. I’ve used the Nemesis to carry a J-frame revolver and some of the micro-Kahr pistols. They should work great for the Glock also.
For a simple outside-the-waistband holster, take a look at the Simple Slide. This is a lined leather rig that allows for a range of small pistols to fit in it. I’ve not used this holster, so I cannot speak to its usefulness. However, this style of holster can be quite good. They are available in only black, but right- and left-hand versions are available.
An inexpensive leather rig, the Insider is an inside-the-waistband holster that is designed to be as thin as possible. The soft leather is not molded, meaning that it should work with the G43 as is. DeSantis uses a spring clip to fasten the scabbard to the pant belt. However, I’ve seen some people say that the clip moves around a lot, making it less secure than other rigs. I’ve not tested this holster, so I cannot give any first hand information on it.
There are additional DeSantis holsters that have been announced for the Glock 43. They are:
- Mini Scabbard – an OWB, open-top leather rig
- Dual Carry II – a rig that can be worn OWB or IWB with a thumb snap
- Thumb Break Mini Slide – OWB
- Mini Slide – an OWB without the thumb break
- Die Hard – an ankle holster
- Apache – another ankle holster
- Intruder – a hybrid holster with leather backer
- Invader – similar to the Intruder, but with a neoprene backer
- Inside Heat – an inexpensive leather IWB
- Sof-Tuck – unfinished leather IWB with a tuckable clip
- Cozy Partner – traditional leather IWB with wings
- Pro-Stealth – inexpensive nylon IWB
- Tuck-This II – a nylon version of the Sof-Tuck
- Insider – inexpensive leather IWB
Detroit Holster is currently taking pre-orders on Glock 43 scabbards. Most of the rigs made by the company are Kydex, but some are hybrids with Kydex and leather components. The models available for pre-order include:
- 8 Mile – an IWB style
- Metro – an OWB style that can convert to IWB
- Hastings – another OWB style rig
- John R – a pocket holster
- Gratiot – an IWB with a Kydex shell and leather backer
- Woodward – another IWB that uses a leather backer; wider than the Gratiot
- Jefferson – an OWB with a Kydex shell and leather backer
- Dix – a “holster” that covers the trigger guard only
F3 Holsters is taking pre-orders on the Foxtrot AIWB rig. This holster is a Kydex appendix holster that is able to have a shirt tucked in over it. The MSRP is $39.95. Additionally, the company plans on selling a Kydex pocket holster for this pistol. It will have a retail price of $29.95. Rounding out the company’s offerings is an OWB with a MSRP of $49.95.
Fury Carry Solutions
Fury Carry Solutions makes Kydex holster for the new Glock. Currently, they offer four different models: the Concealment, Competition, Professional and Appendix Series. The first three are all variations of OWB holsters. The Appendix Series is a low profile IWB that is designed specifically for people who like to carry in the appendix position.
Galco announced they would now be making holsters for the G43. I do not believe these are shipping yet. The rigs include:
- KingTuk – a tuckable IWB
- Summer Comfort – a traditional leather IWB like the Milt Sparks Summer Special
- Pocket Protector – a pocket holster
- other, unspecified OWB, IWB, ankle and shoulder holsters
As I get more information from Galco, I will gladly add it.
Galdius Holsters makes a vest holster that looks to be superior to its competitors in this niche. The rig is made of Kydex with a hook and loop backing. It holds the gun securely in place, but keeps it readily available if needed. This video shows the vest holster mounted on a concealable vest and under an external carrier.
Gould & Goodrich
G&G now offers the B802 pancake holster, B816 ankle holster and B800 open top belt slide for the Glock 43 pistols.
GunfightersINC offers a Kydex OWB rig called the Ronin. These holsters are black and come in both right- and left-handed versions. The holsters have a 10° forward cant and are made in the United States. (Thanks to reader Woody for the tip.)
Harwell Holsters is taking pre-orders on rigs for the G43. Currently, it looks like they will offer three different holster options: the ProTuck IWB, the Clip-N-Go appendix and the ProSlide Holster OWB rig. These range in price from $44.95 – $59.95.
I’m not familiar with HolsterCo, but reader Michael left feedback saying the company’s Stealth IWB is a good rig. It is a Kydex rig with a loop that is adjustable for ride height and cant. The rig is also ambidextrous, so right- and left-handed shooters can work off the same design. HolsterCo advertises a Green-Stealth model that is functionally identical to the stealth, but uses recycled Kydex. The company also offers an OWB holster for this pistol.
Jackson Leatherwork offers a pair of carry rigs for the 9mm Glock. The first is an IWB-style holster. It is made of leather with a reinforced top. It uses a metal clip to attach to the belt. These can be had in brown or black and right- or left-handed versions.
The second holster is an OWB rig that can be had either as an open top or with a retention snap. These are made of leather and available in either black or brown.
Kinetic Concealment is now offering their patent pending IWB rigs for the Glock 43. These holsters are a hybrid design with a polymer shell and a leather slab. The leather is backed by a neoprene cushion to increase comfort and reduce sweat from reaching the gun. The company also offers an OWB and combo kit for the pistol.
Kusiak Leather is a south Florida holster maker that handcrafts all of the rigs in the USA. These holsters are leather carry rigs and there are a variety of options available for the Glock 43. Take a look at their video above for a general idea of what the company offers.
L.A.G. Tactical advised they are taking pre-orders on Kydex Glock 43 rigs now and expect to ship on or about April 10, 2015. I’ve not used any of this company’s products before, but it looks like they offers some nice designs. Prices start at $46 and go up depending on the model holster.
Lenwood Leather announced they are accepting pre-orders for the OWB Wraith and the tuckable IWB Specter. These Kydex rigs are available in a wide variety of colors and patterns. Additionally, they can be had in both right- and left-handed models. Pricing starts at $49.99 for either model.
One of my favorite holster makers, Milt Sparks, offers several options for the G43 pistol. Right now, the company is making the Versa Max 2, Executives Companion, Summer Special 2 and Nexus rigs for the pistol. These are all inside-the-waistband holsters. The company also plans to make the 55BN, an outside-the-waistband rig, for the gun.
I own a Summer Special 2 for my Glock 19. I highly recommend both Milt Sparks as a company and the Summer Special 2 for a daily carry holster.
MSR Kydex makes two different rigs for the G43 – an IWB and an OWB. Both, as the company name suggests, are made of Kydex. The company offers some basic customization options such as the color or camo pattern you want the holster finished in. Pricing starts at $45 for the IWB and $60 for the OWB.
MTO Holster offers IWB and OWB options for this Glock handgun. The IWB rigs can be had as a CrossBreed-like hybrid style or as a clip style with a leather backer. The prices seem affordable, though I’ve not used one so I cannot speak to their quality.
MultiHolsters offers a number of custom rigs for this pistol. They also offer the Elite IWB holster that is a “quick ship” item. This holster will typically ship within seven days. It is available as a right- or left-handed holster and sells for $59.95. The custom rigs start at $44.95 for the pocket holster and go up.
Florida holster maker, Noriega Holsters, is now offering their line of custom carry rigs for the Glock 43. Contact them directly for additional information on having them build an amazing rig for you. The company also makes a range of other products including knife sheaths, handcuff carriers, badge holders and more.
This is a nylon IWB rig made by orGUNizer. Frankly, I don’t know much about the company, but for an inexpensive holster, it doesn’t look bad. It is ambidextrous and can be carried in virtually any position including appendix, small of the back and cross draw. It uses a clip to secure to the pants and has nylon casters inside for a smooth draw. These sell for less than $20.
This Texas-based company makes a number of Kydex rigs for the Glock 43. The IWB-style holsters have a small “wing” that helps to press the butt of the gun into the body to diminish the possibility of printing. I’ve not tried these rigs, but they look like good quality holsters. Sound off in the comments if you have any experience with them.
PHLster makes a pair of IWB holsters for the newest Glock pistol. One is called the Skeleton, and the other is called the ACCESS. If I understand these rigs correctly, the ACCESS provides full coverage of the gun, while the Skeleton significantly reduces the amount of material around the slide. The company also designed a magazine carrier that is unique to this pistol.
PJ Holster offers a number of carry rigs that will fit the new 9mm pistol. Included among them is a IWB holster (including an option for the gun mounted with a Crimson Trace Laserguard,) an OWB, a pocket holster and an tuckable rig. PJ Holster also offers finish options to include a variety of color and camo patterns.
Recluse is known for making one- and two-sided pocket holsters that buck conventional design. Many people who own them, swear by them. It’s really no surprise that the company is now making rigs for the G43. These are available in both black and tan. (Special thanks to reader Ron who reminded me to include Recluse in the list.)
Red Eye Tactical
Red Eye Tactical is now making a trio of Kydex rigs for the Glock 43. They are the Defender (OWB), Shielder (IWB) and Shielder-A (AIWB). The company offers a number of finish and attachment options. Plus, they offer magazine carriers for the pistol.
Remora offers a different take on how to build a concealed carry holster. The original IWB design does not use a clip or other mechanical device to hold the holster in place. Rather, the exterior of the holster grips the inside of the pants and body, using friction to hold it in place. The company suggests using a hair dryer and freezer to better fit the rig to your gun.
I know there are a lot of people who like these, but I have concerns about firearm retention in a struggle. At some point, I will have to get some of these out on the mats and see how they hold up. They could be quite good.
The company also offers a variety of other rigs from a Bra Draw to an ankle holster.
SHTF Gear is now selling the ACE-1 holster for the Glock 43 pistol. The ACE-1 is a hybrid rig that uses a synthetic shell, leather backer and Kevlar thread. It is a tuckable design. The company is also making the holster for the G43 that has an attached Crimson Trace Laserguard. These holsters can be had in right- and left-handed configurations.
Sneaky Pete Holsters
Sneaky Pete Holsters offer a way to hide your pistol in plain view. Looking like an oversized phone holster, these belt rigs are plainly visible, but do not disclose what is concealed inside. I’ve tried out one of these rigs before, and I found them to be well made and perform well. I do not prefer this method of carry. However, if you do, the rigs are quality holsters and well made.
StealthGear USA is now making two different IWB rigs for this handgun. The first is the AIWB appendix carry holster, and the second is the Onyx IWB. Both rigs use a Kydex shell that is mounted to a VentCore backer. The VentCore product is padded and breathable to provide a very comfortable carry experience.
I’m currently testing an Onyx rig with a G19 pistol. So far it has been very comfortable and secure.
A favorite of many people, the unique friction holsters from Sticky Holsters will work with the Glock 43 pistol. These rigs have a tacky exterior to work as excellent IWB or pocket holsters. Additionally, they are fairly inexpensive – typically less than $30.
The Holster Store
The Holster Store offers more leather holster options for the G43 than probably anyone else on the market. From pocket carry to shoulder holsters, the company seems to make it all. Here are a few of the rigs they currently offer:
- Extreme Duty
- Shoulder Holster
- On Duty
- Ankle Holster
- Belt Ride
- Pocket Holster
- LT Zombie
- Shirt Tuck
- Quick Draw
- Deep Comfort
Currently a pre-order, the Zeus rig from Triad Holsters is an IWB design made of Kydex. These will be available with finishes in black, carbon fiber, coyote tan, OD green and neon pink. The pricing starts at$44.99.
Kydex holster maker Tulster offers a pair of rigs for the Glock 43 pistol. The first is the Pilot. This is an open-top OWB holster that starts at $79.99. It can be had with any of 13 different color finishes and your choice in belt loop options.
The Profile is an IWB holster with all of the same options available on the Pilot. The MSRP starts at $59.99.
Uncle Mike’s manufactures a wide range of nylon and Kydex rigs for handguns. One of their more popular choices, the open top pocket holster is made to fit the Glock 43. The rig uses a combination of synthetic materials to securely hold the gun, break up its outline and ensure the pistol is in the right position should you ever need to draw it in an emergency. Pricing varies on these, but expect to pay less than $15 for one. I would think the size 4 would work best, but I’ve not confirmed this.
In addition to armed citizens, Uncle Mike’s offers holsters for law enforcement officers and security professionals. A popular choice for backup gun carry is the body armor holster. These nylon rigs attach to a bullet resistant vest and hold the gun close to the body. I’ve used these extensively in my career as a street cop, and I found them to be exceptionally good. The real treat is that they are very inexpensive – often about $13 or so. Again, I would expect the size 4 to be a good fit. However, I have not tested this myself.
For more concealment, take a look at the company’s nylon ankle holster. Like the body armor rig above, I’ve used a number of these ankle rigs as a cop. When strapped on top of a duty boot, they were very secure and comfortable enough to wear throughout a 12 hour shift. I do not like them as much on top of a sock alone with low cut shoes. As they say, your mileage may vary. A size 12 is likely to work with these.
If you want a belt holster, but don’t want to spend a lot of money, consider the Super Belt Slide holster from Uncle Mike’s. One of these was my first CCW rig back in the early 90’s. Though mine was for a 4″ K-frame revolver, the company does make one sized for the G43 – take a look at the size 16. I’d expect to pay about $25 for one.
Urban Carry Holsters
appear to be Can Can Concealment rigs that are listed above that tucks a gun out of site and below the waistband, these relatively new rigs have gotten a lot of attention in recent months. It looks like a good way to keep a gun concealed, but might be difficult to draw the gun from a number of positions – such as when seated in a car. Regardless, it might fill a need you have in your concealed carry regimen.
Note that some of the other carry rigs, such as the garter, hip and corset holsters, appear to be Can Can Concealment rigs that are listed above.
Wilson Concealment is now taking orders on the company’s IWB rig made for the Glock pistol. The Kydex rigs are available in more than 20 finishes. Also, the holsters can be had with standard attachment clips or with versions that allow you to tuck a shirt in over the gun. The price on these is $50 with finish prices potentially driving the price up from there.
Winthrop Holsters makes a custom leather rig for the G43. Designed for IWB carry, the holster has a pair of snaps to keep it in place. The company suggests the gun is best carried in the 3:30 – 4:00 position, just behind the strong hip. I’ve not used one, but reader R.H. e-mailed and said he really likes his.
Wisconsin Holster Company
The Wisconsin Holster Company is now making its hybrid and full Kydex rigs for the G43. The company offers a variety of finishes including ATACS, Kryptec and digital camo options. Prices start at $64.99 and goes up depending on the model and options.
Wright Leather Works
If you are looking for a high end leather carry rig for your single stack 9, take a look at what Wright Leather Works is making. From cross draw to pocket rigs, the company seems to be making most styles of carry holsters for these guns. There are a variety of color options available, and the company is making the holsters for the G43 with a Crimson Trace laser attached as well.
Made of Kydex and backed by a lifetime warranty, YetiTac holsters are now being made for the G43 pistol. The company makes both IWB and OWB style rigs for this pistol. Included in the line up are the:
- Minilalist IWB
- Yeti07 IWB
- Quick Claw OWB
- Yeti One OWB
- Comp-S OWB
- Flex OWB
- EDC Paddle
- YetiPro OWB
If you want a drop leg holster for the tiny Glock, YetiTac makes the only one I know of: the TacRig Drop Leg Holster. Get it MultiCam for all of your Offical Mall Ninja activities.
Quick note: I recently reviewed a pair of YetiTac holsters designed for the Streamlight TLR-6 light/laser unit. The holsters worked great. So did the light. Click here to read the YetiTac review, and click here to read the Streamlight TLR-6 review.
Glock 43 Information
If you are not already familiar with the G43 pistol, it is a single-stack 9mm handgun that has a polymer frame and is striker-fired. It is very similar to the G42 pistol in .380 ACP, but is much thinner than the other 9mm pistols the company currently sells. The gun was introduced in March 2015.
Trainer, writer and gun historian Massad Ayoob takes a look at the gun:
The specs on the gun are:
|weight (no magazine)||17.95 oz|
|action||double action only, striker fired|
According to the company reps I have talked to, the G43 will come with the standard sights that are typical to the line. A lot of people do not like the factory sights, so I have assembled a page of after market G43 sights here.
Just a quick note – I will continue to build this list as new options for the new 9mm Glock become available. However, please leave a note in the comments section if you see or hear of another rig that should be added to this list.
