New Glock 42 Pistol Preview


Everyone who has ever read any of my articles knows that I love Glock. I have owned lots of Glocks over the years, and I have never been disappointed with any of them.

Now, Glock is teasing us with the new Glock that will come out at the SHOT Show this January. This Glock is supposed to be very small and super reliable–at least, according to their magazine ads.

So what is this little bundle of joy going to be? My best guess is that we are looking at a single stack 9mm. This style has really gained momentum over the last while. Springfield has released their single stack 9mm and .45 ACP that are the same width. Sig now has a double stack .45 that supposedly feels like a P226. The market is shifting towards smaller, thinner grips.

So, what do you all think? What is this new Glock going to be? There is also the Glock 41 that is set to be released as well and it appears to be a full-sized single stack .45 ACP. Mind you, these are just guesses on my part.

Let us have your thoughts listed in the comments—what are we going to see from Glock? Would you consider buying a single stack 9mm from Glock?

    Appears that even gun sites and blogs have trolls who infest them. While one may have all the rights to make comments why come to a blog that you have no interest in except to criticize the subject of the article and promote there own agenda. Seems these trolls are no better than the lib ones who visit conservative sites only to stir up things. As the old saying goes, “if you have nothing nice to say don’t say it” though creative criticism is allowed if it is factual information not bias dogma.

    The Glock 42 will be a .380, not to be confused with the G25 or G28.

    here is a glock video net yet released on the 42

    Please… why did you put into print that Glock made a mistake with the 45 G.A.P. If you love Glock then why weren’t you supportive of their effort to bring the 45 ACP into the present. 45 ACP was an improvement on an old design, just as 45 GAP is an improvement on an OLD design. When someone, a very smart someone, improves on the design of the gun powder and projectile weapon and offers a more efficient way to incapacitate a human and stop them from doing harm to others, will you embrace that or just point out it’s flaws. I happen to think that it is time for us to move on from exploding things, which is highly detrimental to the device being used. A very good comparison would be an electric automobile. I guess you feel that the electric car is a failure, as well.

    I personally love Glocks and think these two new offerings will be well received. From a CCW perspective, I own the Kahr P45, SIG 928, S&W 628, Beretta Tomcat and the Walther PPK and while all are great in there own right and caliber, I always come back to Glock. I’m currently carrying my G27. IMO, for the price, ease of use/maintenance and reliability, you can’t top a Glock. I feel confident that when I pull the trigger I’ll hear a boom and not a click…enough so to stake my life on the weapon (tap/rack/bang can be the other guy’s problem). There’s a reason everyone compares their polymer to Glock (even folks here in the comments section). And let’s be honest, from a business perspective…like Glock, don’t like Glock, the truth is they’re going to sell a boat-load of these things.

    I have first hand knowledge that the Glock 42 is a 6 shot single stack 10mm that weighs in at just 10.4 oz. This will be awesome!

    Glock ,what a springfeild wishes it could be.
    By the way,my boyfriend does not work at springfeild,so there

  10. Glock Safe says:

    Glocks have 3 safety devices built in. It cant and will not fire unless you pull the trigger. Learn how to handle a firearm safely first before you start talking smack!

  11. Jt says:

    Somebody must have a boyfriend at springfeild arms

  12. Brian says:

    The premise of a pistol for self defense, it must work first time, all the time = “Glock”
    Have sufficient rounds for the possibility of a gun fight, with multiple assailants! Glock 19, spare G17 magazine. 16 to go, just press the trigger.

    A thin Glock, 10 round magazine, perfect for shoulder holster (social occasions) sit with arms folded, hand on grip. Sweat all over it, no worries.

    I love Glocks! I’m a Federal LEO so am intimately familur with them! I’m also a Firearms Instructor so I am around a LOT of handguns! I personally have three and used to have more. I gave several to my son so that he’d have a chance to own these fine pistols before a……things could change. We collectively have, a 1989 G-17, a G-19, two picatinney ambi G-21′s, a .40 S&W marked Gen II G-22 and a late Gen III. We also own a G-31. I am sometimes chided by my pistol snob friends who tote H&K’s or Sig’s. The fact is, Glock pistols get the job done! I have personally never had a failure of any kind with a Glock pistol. Not one!
    I’ve never had a failure with any of my Sig’s either for that matter. In fact, gun snobs be darned I owned a Smith & Wesson 5906 that would feed empty cases to battery, in the 1980′s. To me, and I am referred to as a subject matter expert;…you can’t go wrong with a Glock pistol. In my humble opinion, at twice the price Glock products are second to none. At the price that they are today, there is no better bang for the buck.

    Hey BOB,
    You got the right idea with that 10mm. I carry my 29SF all most every day but a smaller version would be great. Come on Glock, put it in to production, you have my word I’ll buy two!

  15. hcontry says:

    Great ‘another temptation to perplex me,like i don’t have enough guns,now a single stack 45acp? glock<when is the 380 coming to the shores of U.S.A.?
    yes,THE GLOCK 45GAP, WAS AND is an improvement to the 45 cal line up.
    Don't get me started on the glock 36, and those lovely bear guns in 10mm.
    Well,all right,surprise me,and when do the rifles start showing up?
