The Victory First V43 slide and barrel was a concept born shortly after the very popular Glock 43 started showing up in Victory First courses.
The small, thin frames single stack 9MM was near perfect, sans the short upper.
In 2017 we began the process of developing replacement components to optimize the Glock model 43. The Glock model 43 is an awesome applicant for AIWB (appendix inside the waistband) and with the longer upper receiver, it is far more comfortable than the factory short slide firearms. The short slides cause what Matt calls the "Lego effect" Matt believed that Lego blocks wouldn't hurt as bad if they were as longer. We have applied and proven this to be the cure for "hot spots" when carrying a short slide handgun AIWB.
A 6.89" slide and 4.33" match Victory barrel are the major components. All of your current G43 internals and recoil spring assembly can be transferred directly into the slide and will mount to your G43 frame. The slide is 17-4PH stainless with a nitride final finish. The barrel is the same 416R quality barrel that Victory First has become known to produce. The barrel is also finished in black nitride.
These are precision machined and held to very strict tolerances and QC. The V43 is a direct swap, factory component ready upper for your model 43 or an 80% project using quality internals.
We have also thought of the holster solution.
