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?

    I agree that the 41 will be a full size single stack 45acp, but based on that premise the 42 should be a single stack 40

  2. James Long says:

    I don’t Glock and never will. So many better choices out there. In my not-so-humble opinion, Springfield alone has Glock beat hands down, including being a safer product.

  3. Jeff says:

    I currently own 6 GLOCKS. and will definitely buy the single stack 45… can’t freakin wait. Thanks Gaston.

  4. Juiceman says:

    How did you two smuggle that box cutter onto this plane?
    Thanks for highjacking what will probably now be a GlockHater/GlockLover thread…because we haven’t heard enough about that subject!

    So that I’m not guilty of the same crimes….I think Glock will reluctantly come out with a single stack only when it is in high demand, just not sure if we’re there yet. And Yes, I would buy one if had at least 10 rounds of 9mm. I’m getting tired of the discomfort of carrying double stacked guns.
    Glock may be coming out with a true pocket gun too, who knows, but the Glock 26 doesn’t quite fit that bill so…

  5. El Mac says:

    Glock…they deserve kudos for bringing a good workable polymer pistol to production back in the day. They paved the way for many companies to follow on with their own brand of polymer. Unfortunately for Glock, they haven’t really kept up with the times as far as offering options and better ergonomics. Which is a shame.

    Polymer pistols – there are now many more options out there besides Glock. But I wish them well nevertheless.

  6. Mike says:

    Might that spoof/Photoshop of a Glock 1911 .45acp be coming to reality in the 41?

    • ronaldo says:

      We don’t need any more copies of the 1911. The reason that Gaston Glock did NOT make a copy of a 1911 is because he knew that he could design a better hand gun. There are as many aftermarket parts for the 1911 that there are because it takes so much effort to keep one operating. Can we concentrate on going on into the future and stop trying to carry on with out-of-date designs?

  7. Michael says:

    Glock has an awesome product, but Springfield XD is better!

  8. John says:

    Thanks for all that meaningful input glock haters!
    I am hoping for a single stack 9mm. Would like to have it as a backup carry. Not that I don’t love my G26!
    Nothing more reliable, accurate or safe than a Glock.

  9. BOB says:

    Compact single stack 10mm please for serious CCW. G29 is a bit wide. Glocks are not elegant but they work!

  10. WastedFriday says:

    I don’t own a single-stack subcompact pistol because Glock doesn’t make one. I have a Glock 19 (gen 1 and still ticking, tens of thousands of rounds later!), a Star BM and a Makarov that I use for CCW.

    If this is a 9mm the size of a Kimber Solo or a Kel-Tec PF9, Glock will sell a zillion of them. I’ll buy one and so will everyone else who doesn’t have an irrational prejudice against Glocks.

    (Maybe the nay-sayers are growing up? At least none of the comments refer to “combat Tupperware…”)

  11. Nate says:

    A single stack .9″ thick 40 S&W that is about the size of a G27, but thinner with a 3rd finger magazine base.

  12. Sammy Safety says:

    Whatever it is, I hope it comes with bright orange safety-warning labels affixed to the top, bottom, sides and, most important, front. Safety first.

  13. Dragonheart says:

    I already own a Glock single stack 45, its called the G-36 and is the same size as my 9mm G-19. So why would I want a full size Glock 45 since a 1911 is thinner, easier to conceal, safer, more accurate and comfortable to shoot?

  14. Jeff says:

    How about Springfield people just relax. ..
    You like yours and we like ours..
    Besides I’ll put my shooting with my GLOCK
    Thunder Ranch (twice) fantastic course.

  15. Argent Projectile says:

    Glock will have to stop putting those stupid finger groves on a single stack handgun for me to buy it. And stop calling that lever on the front of the trigger a “safety” wouldn’t hurt either.

    They also would have to be thinner and lighter than my polymer Kahr.

  16. Joe says:

    XD, Sig ,M&P,Glock…..None are better than the other, it is what works best for you, plus what you like more. Most gun today work right out of the box, it’s the odd gun that don’t work and it can happen to any one of these, though few and far between. We are living in the semi-auto golden age…..ENJOY!!

  17. Willis says:

    I would buy a 42 if it came in .40, and would probably buy one in 9mm if it would handle 9++.

  18. 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?

  19. Dean says:

    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!

  20. John says:

    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.

  21. 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.

  22. Jt says:

    Somebody must have a boyfriend at springfeild arms

  23. 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!

  24. Jt says:

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

  25. Charles says:

    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!

  26. WhateverItTakes says:

    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.

  27. Jerry says:

    Oh sure now it’s anything goes,cats and dogs apples and oranges ,monkeys and onions,it’s what the whole problem with our country the way I have an hk usp expert it will smoke all your this is fun.

  28. ronaldo says:

    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.

  29. Austin says:

    here is a glock video net yet released on the 42

  30. Dud says:

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

  31. roguemark says:

    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.

  32. john says:

    g42 is beautiful…..if glock gets smart they will make the 9mm luger in the same size. i know i will buy 3 of them if they do
