I have considered the 43 as only a CC pistol, but while shopping for a shop to do some stippling on a frame, i saw many are doing "fancy" designs on 43s. Now browsing Brownells, im seeing aftermarket match threaded barrels, triggers from Agency, Overwatch, etc. Things I would consider home on a range gun. Are people using 43s as a primary range gun?

As a primary range gun? No.

But with vickers +2's it's enjoyable to shoot 100-200 rounds each session in addition to the usual 19.4 or 17.4 I bring with me.

Agreed but man reloading 6-8 rounds at a time they sure do go fast. I usually put about 4-10 mags through my G43 each range trip before I get bored and move on to a full size Glock or CZ. It does not help that I still only have two mags for mine but they are harder to find in the $20 price bracket in stock anywhere right now.

To me, dedicated range guns are guns that are easy to shoot well. That's definitely not the G43. These mods and upgrades may help, but it'll be as easy to shoot as a stock G19.

And some people are just friggen wierd. The 43 is a CCW gun and trying to turn it into anything else is just silly IMO but to each their own.
