The .380 makes sense.

It will put Glock in the pocket-Rocket market and support the M&P spec. for a .380 deep-cover pistol.

And, they will sell a lot of'em before the larger 9mm/.40 version everybody wants comes out.


Maybe not so dumb.

If the 42 is a 380, everything will depend on the size. I cannot justify buying a 380 the size of a 9mm.
If it is close to P380, no problem.

A 380 Glock is a little late. What next, 25acp?

The era of small only applies to countries where 9mm is outlawed for civilian use. What UN BS is about to be inacted that makes this pistol necessary? I hope none.

Another small 380...blah. I really see no point, but I'm sure Glock hopes it sells like hotcakes. IMHO they'd be better off with a 9mm or .40 version to compete more with the CM9/CM40 from Kahr, kind of like a single stack ultra compact 9mm and .40.

A longer practical tactical .45? Eh I can sort of see the point more than I can a 380, but it's going to be a big pistol either way. However that does open the door for a 10mm version down the road too.

Hurry up and release a Gen4 24 Glock...sheesh.

I always said I would never get a .380, 9mm was the smallest caliber I would carry. That changed recently when I realized there were times I could not comfortably carry my MK9. So, I decided to get a pocket .380. I was going to wait until January to see what this 42 is all about, then I realized there is no way whatever it is will be as small and thin as a Kahr P380. So, I pick mine up from my FFL on Thursday. On a side note, I had no problem finding .380 ammo online at fair prices, both range and defensive carry.

Excellent idea, a G17 size 25ACP.
Can't go wrong.

A Gen 4 45cal ,long slide "TP" Look's pretty cool in my minds eye.
& the 380 would be nice , if the price is similar to the LCP's
Just my opinion.

I really thought that a single stack 9mm was the thing I was least likely to have any interest in from Glock but it looks as if I was wrong. We can sill hope one of them is the single stack 9 so those who have been clamoring for it will be silent.

..love Glocks and will always own more than one. But like a previous poster said, the Walther PPS is everything a single stack Glock would be if not a tad better.

Love mine and I've been over-critical in looking for reasons to unfavorably compare it to a small Glock. I can't though.

Glock will never make the Model 40. Too many people use 40 as slang for the 22/23 Models.


I hope that we don't have to keep having this conversation forever.

The Glock will need NO "teething" issues. They had better have it right, right from the get go. The Glock 42 will need to have the "Glock" trigger reset just like the big boys. Better rust resistant finish just like the bigger Glocks. Same easy take down to clean. +P rated to shoot some of the hotter boutique ammo. IF it has those 4 things Glock won't be able to make enough of them.


This is 100% spot on.

Do you really think Glock cares about what people do or don't do? Nor should they, street slang shouldn't determine what model number they use.

A single stack 9mm and a pistol caliber carbine are the two most requested from Glock for the last decade. Those would have been much better choices.

I guess if you can't keep up with production of your normal products, new offerings don't make much difference.
I agree!

The G26/27 is about 1/10" longer, about 1/4" shorter and about 1/4" wider and can take 10-33 rounds.
So, how do we hide that 1/4" width? Easier than you can hide the extra 1/4" height of the PPS.
I don't see the big deal considering how well a G26 shoots.
To me it's a no brainer.

I was hoping for a single stack 9mm, it seems Glock completely ignores market trends and customer feedback and builds whatever they want, the micro .380 fad has come and gone, why buy a micro .380 when the 9's are almost as small and carries more rounds with more stopping power?

However, the longslide G34 length .45 ACP model does interest me a lot. And I'll be checking that one out. Guess I'll stick with the Shield and the G26 for summer carry.

I don't see what is so disappointing about the G41 or the G42. Especially the G42. If Glock is willing to come up with an all new slim and compact single stack .380 then the chances of a single stack 9mm down the road just went up greatly IMO.

The small .380s are still selling very well. It is obvious you have not seen or compared the small .380s with the small 9x19 guns. There is still quite a size difference.

True, but from what little we know, it seems that this 42 is not nearly as small as the micro 380's. If so, thats disappointing. I hope its the size of a bodygaurd or lcp, but thats asking a lot from glock. Asking for a single stack 9 is not, which is why im sad about this apparent decision.

I heard it's a new single stack with a 9x24 round, the .357 Glock Maximum.

If the teaser pic of the G42/Ronson Lighter are both actual size, the G42 will be small.

If the G42 is not of similar size to the LCP, Bodyguard, P380 and etc then Glock should not even bother IMO. A lot of people don't have any interest in an LC380 or Bersa sized .380 pistol.
