G43 vs. 50 Cal – FIGHT!

Okay, its more of a mauling, but that does not mean its not good entertainment and unlike the upcoming Mayweather “finale” boxing match, you dont have to pay to watch this one-sided affair. Glock’s wonder polymer does not hold up well to a .50 slug.

FullMag takes an M107 Barrett and proceeds to punch holes (or rather, fully demolish) a diminutive G43 9mm handgun. I also relish the sound of fanboys screaming as Glock has yet to catch up with demand for the single-stack “baby Glock.”

For science? Perhaps. For entertainment? Certainly.

    I was expecting the semi-auto rifle G43, I will now cry on the corner,

    • Gjert Klakeg Mulen

      I think I would have cried in the corner if it was a original Gewehr 43 being shot by a .50 caliber.

      • Vitor Roma

        Oh, indeed.

  • Bill

    I’m just guessing, but for the frame at least would a .22 do the same? 😉

    • Just say’n

      You’re forgetting .50 BMG is easier to find than .22LR.

      • INFI

        You know it’s bad man when 9mm is more spendy than .22 Long Rifle

  • Bill

    Um, his hat sorta makes him look Amish, which is causing cognitive dissonance.

    • Burst

      The Amish are allowed to use .50 cals to hunt whales and Kraken.
      That probably works best if they own a boat, though.

      • Bill

        A horse-drawn boat at that.

    I thought it was a comparison of the G43 (rifle) and the .50.

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    Considering Mayweathers long history of woman beating this might be more a more fitting target to go along with your analogy.

  • Andy B

    Soooooooooo, I should use a G43 for ballistic protection?

    • Andy B

      “should not use”.

  • thedonn007

    How much money does he make from the youtube videos that he can blow $500 like that?

    • USMC03Vet

      With 1.5 million subscribers he makes bank.

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        I am sitting at my desk madly racking my brain to think of any dumb ass thing like this I could do to make money.

        • thedonn007

          You could shoot a barret .50 cal with a G43.

          • TheNotoriousIUD

            Id rather drop a tank filled with napalm out of a C130 onto a pile of AK-47’s.

          • maynardb

            Just as long as it isn’t an M-60A2 ‘Starship’

      • thedonn007

        Hmm, I have 1 subscriber on my youtube channel, guess I need to make some better videos.

    • Mc Cain

      When I was actively posting new videos on YouTube my modest YouTube channel, which has now around 22,000 subscribers, I was making, on average $500 a month.

      That gives you some idea, if you do the math, of how much people with 1.5 million subscribers bring in per month.

      We are talking HUGE BUCKS people.

      It is not at all out of the possible that this buy is raking in 30K every month from his channel.

  • Glock hasn’t caught up with demand for the G43? That’s quite surprising as my locale is awash with them.

  • JR

    Pompous Ass.

  • Gregory

    What a asinine video and a waste of a firearm!

  • Kjk

    MW boxing finale isn’t “upcoming”, it already has taken place a month ago. And yes, it was horrible and boring. And no, I’m not a fan of his at all. More of a PAC guy myself. He’s a gun guy by the way. Shoots IDPA matches.

    “Entertainment” for idiots…

    Don’t they have pills for this sort of thing? Why don’t you believe her when she says that size doesn’t matter??
