Victory First will showcase the all-new V43 Upper Receiver, a custom slide for stock Glock 43 pistols.
The V43 is a direct drop-in slide, precision machined from 17-4PH stainless steel. The drop-in features OEM Glock components paired with a match Victory Barrel. Measuring 6.89-inches in overall length, the Victory barrel sports a 4.33-inch length. Victory First said threaded barrels in “industry standard thread pitch” will also be available.
Founder Matt Jacques said the V43 design arose from a desire to provide consumers with a means to comfortably carry the Glock 43 in AIWB.
“The intent of the project was to simply lengthen the slide and barrel to increase the comfort for concealment, specifically when carrying the gun in the appendix region (AIWB),” Jacques explained in a news release. “This configuration keeps the frame slim, but gives it a G19-ish sized slide and barrel combo. This will alleviate discomfort felt by folks who love the slim profile of the Model 43 but found it unpleasant to carry.”
Now word yet on pricing. Victory First will debut the V43 at the upcoming SHOT Show in Las Vegas Jan. 21 through Jan. 25.
