The New Glock 41 and 42

glock-41-42

The suspense is over. Glock has revealed that they have two new guns coming to the American market in 2014: The Glock 41 and 42.

The Glock 42 is a single stack .380 auto pocket pistol. The 42 is a 6+1 capacity and is highly concealable.

Here are the specs:

Length: 5.94”

Width: 0.94”

Height: 4.13”

Barrel:  3.25”

Weight: 12.35 oz (no magazine)

Weight: 14.36 oz (fully loaded)

Trigger pull: 5.62 lbs.

Capacity 6+1

This new introduction will fall squarely into the pocket pistol category. The width comes in at less than an inch, the height at just over four inches. This pistol is smaller than the G26, which is what Glock had promised. I must admit that I am not a big fan of the .380 auto, but this caliber is starting to see a resurgence.

For the shooter looking for a pistol that they can easily carry concealed, this new Glock is worth a look.

The Glock 41 is a full size .45 ACP, similar to the Glock 34. This is really geared towards the competition shooter, but I imagine it will see use in the LEO community, as well. It is the exact opposite of the 42. Where the 42 is highly concealable, the 41 is huge. It is close to nine inches long and is five and a half inches tall.

Here are the specs:

Length: 8.9”

Width: 1.28”

Height: 5.47”

Barrel: 5.31”

Weight: 24 oz (no magazine)

Weight: 36 oz( fully loaded)

Trigger pull: 5.62 lbs.

Capacity: 13+1

I think the biggest news here is the introduction of the .380 auto in the U.S. market. My feeling is that the Glock 42 will be a huge seller for Gaston and crew. I am a big Glock fan, and I am giving serious consideration to getting one when they are finally available. I can see the 42 being my summer carry gun when I wear shorts and a tee-shirt and just need something to slip into my front pocket.

I am interested in hearing from you. Will you be buying either of these new guns?
