One of the biggest complaints about the Glock 43 from its first release has been the magazine capacity. Sure, in a perfect world it would have a magazine that would last through an entire 1980's action movie without needing a swap, and fit right into your pocket perfectly. Unfortunately, current technology and the laws of physics prevent this. The Glock 43 is a slim little gun that can be tucked away almost anywhere, but that 6+1 OEM capacity is hardly going to put anyone in a state of awe.

Taran Tactical Innovations (TTI), the eponymous company of Taran Butler, jut announced that they're accepting pre-orders for new +3 Glock 43 magazine extensions. This isn't exactly new ground for TTI, as making magazines hold more rounds is something that they've been excelling at for several years now (+5's for the Glock 17, for example). TTI also has +1 and +2 base pads for both the Glock 42 and Glock 43, so this may have been inevitable.


Regarding size, it doesn't appear to be too ridiculous to carry with one inserted in the gun. Those with larger hands who have a hard time with the slim and short grip of the G43 may appreciate it outright. Or, one could always just use the extension on their reload and keep the OEM magazine in the gun.

Here it is compared to a Samsung Galaxy S6

The Taran Tactical Innovations +3 Glock 43 base pads are currently in a pre-order status. Heck, you can see that the ones we have pictures of aren't even finished. At $30 a pop, pricing is right in line with their other offerings. You can learn more about these and other TTI products here.

Oh, and in case you didn't know or haven't yet seen…. Taran Butler does a lot of work with Hollywood. Just a quick gander at his Instagram or Youtube profile garners an assortment of celebrities learning how to shoot guns from him. Recently he's been working with Keanu Reeves to help him prep for John Wick 2.
