What Glock 43X Accessories are Available
What can I add to my Glock 43X? There is no shortage of aftermarket Glock 43x accessories, but there are a few that I feel are necessary.
Those are the sights, a match barrel, and a metal high-capacity magazine. Beyond that, you can add a compensator if you have a threaded barrel for the Glock 43X.
Faxon Firearms Glock 43X Barrel

Faxon Firearms EXOS Compensator
The Faxon EXOS Pistol Compensator is one of the best comps on the market for the Glock 43X handgun. Granted it’s not the only player in town, its design, ease of installation, and performance have put the competition on its heels.
- Length: 1.218″
- Width: .865″
- Height: 1.269″
- Weight: .05lbs
- Thread: 1/2×28
The angled port design allows gas to deflect upwards as opposed to only deflecting to the sides, reducing the up-and-down muzzle movement and improving the overall accuracy of the Glock 43x.
The Faxon EXOS Pistol Compensator is designed to fit flush with the slide and has been optimized for Faxon pistol barrels.
The EXOS is specifically engineered to function effectively with a wide range of factory-loaded ammunition, resulting in a notable decrease in the upward movement of the firearm’s muzzle, typically ranging from 13% to 27% when using 115gr ammunition.
In the case of the G43, there is a significant 73% reduction in the upward flip of the muzzle when compared to using no additional muzzle device, or a 27% reduction in muzzle flip overall. As for the G43x and G48, they exhibit an 87% reduction in muzzle flip compared to the average compensator’s performance, or a 13% reduction compared to other similar products on the market.
In the past, some individuals have expressed concerns about using compensators affecting the reliability of the slide cycling correctly. To address this issue, some users have opted to enhance the performance of their pistols by upgrading the recoil springs as a way to “compensate” for any potential drawbacks.
Our team conducted thorough testing of various ammunition options, including 115-grain, 124-grain, and 147-grain loads, in conjunction with the Faxon EXOS compensator.
The outcome of these tests was highly favorable. One particular recommendation for those seeking an excellent starting point would be to consider utilizing 124-grain NATO FMJ loads for range and practice sessions.
These rounds are specifically designed to deliver gas pressure equivalent to +P loads, making them ideal for training purposes.
When it comes to self-defense ammunition, there is a wide array of options to choose from, particularly in the realm of 124-grain Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) loads, which are readily available in today’s market.
Glock 43X Sights | Night Fision Tritium Sights
Night Fision is one of the oldest Tritium license holders in the United States and knows a thing or two about working with Tritium. Their Tritium night sights are some of the most technologically advanced sights on the market for handguns. So what makes the Night Fision Tritium night sights stand out from others on the market?
To start they use a ballistic polymer cup. Many other companies use only a painted ring or small cap. The ballistic polymer cup is made from the same material as bulletproof glass. Additionally, the ballistic polymer cup material is given a fluorescent color. Inside the ballistic polymer cup sits a custom-made Tritium vial.
That Tritium vial has 30% more gas pressure than any other night sight on the market. Pressure is what makes the Tritium bright. The higher the pressure, the brighter the gas becomes. Next, the ballistic polymer cup and custom Tritium vial is injected into a 4140 metal body that is coated with a black nitride finish.
All this attention to detail ensures their sights are the brightest available. Night Fision guarantees the sights for life never to chip, crack, fade, or fall out. Pretty sure these sights will survive an end-of-the-world apocalypse.
If you’re running a Glock 43X MOS with an optic, Night Fision has you covered with their Optics Ready Stealth Series.
With the above accessories, the Glock 43X shoots a lot bigger than it really is.
What I mean by that is that when I’m shooting this gun, I don’t feel like I’m shooting a smaller-sized gun; I feel like I’m shooting a normal-sized gun such as the Glock 19.
Add these Glock 43X accessories to your handgun and watch the performance and accuracy skyrocket.
