    They’ve only sold hundreds of thousands of them. Some people do have a problem with the trigger or trigger guard. I’ve give you what it cost you plus $300 if you do decide to sell
    It. That’s before you “modify” it though.

    I have many Glocks including the G43 and G43X and shoot them regularly and have never gotten Glock knuckle.
    It does help if you undercut the trigger guard a bit or try a grip sleeve to change the position on the grip. About half of my Glocks have been undercut and have never had a problem with them.

    Hmmm...

    ...you don't sell guns nor give away POS guns, so tell me how to insult the heck out of you so you would give it to me for revenge.

    That will let you get even with me and remove a "safe queen" from your arsenal.

    Maybe Glock has a "sanctuary city" where it sends unappreciated Glocks...………...

    (In fairness, I do have several Glocks. They just aren't my favorite 'children'.)

    He isn't getting "glock knuckle". His trigger finger is rubbing on the inside bottom of the trigger guard causing the problem.

    I personally have never heard of this issue and I haven't shot a G43 enough to know if I would have the same problem.

    I had a G43, and experienced the same issue. Really wasn’t impressed with that or any of the other bricks- er, I mean, Glocks I’ve had in the past, and all of them have gone on to new homes.

    Some people aren’t manly enough for Glocks. They aren’t pretty but when other guns puke they keep on going. Took me a while to realize that and I still have occasional relapses.

    I like Glocks well enough, generally preferring the gen5 models. There is a G17 in the classifieds that is really tempting me but I'm trying to hold out for a deal on a M&P 2.0 5".
