Took my 42 out to the range

Picked it up a couple of months ago, posted a picture when I got it. First chance to take it out. Shot PMC FMJ, not a single failure of any type. Was accurate and light recoiling. Be a nice carry piece for hot weather

Lately I've been shooting tin cans hanging on a string.
Hitting that dancing can is a challenge.

Fun gun.

I must admit, despite being issued a 27, I always carry my 23. But I really want a 42.

I think your patience is commendable. I'm not sure I have ever waited a couple of months to shoot a new pistol. ;-)

Work can suck at times... Plus had some family events. Having the shooting range 30 miles away doesn't help either. Glad a new one is opening up just a few miles down the road

I have shot my twice. The first time with fiocci and the second time with some reloads. the reloads would not cycle more than two rounds before a failure to feed or a stove pipe. I field stripped the pistol and the barrel seems to have some "dremmeling" at the top of the ramp. Is this normal?

Yes.
My March-built gun (early version slide stop) does not have it, my May-built (late version slide stop) does. Both of them would lock open early, until I filed the slide stop tab.

It appears that current guns are getting the throating job with a horse-drawn plow, and the top-right of the magazine shaved, before they leave the factory. I think Glock has kinda lost their way on the G42 project. Fortunately, some of the guns work ok out of the box, and the others can eventually be fixed.

BTW,

Spent my first day at a shooting range on Saturday with my G42 and G19. Also got to shoot my friend's G33 and his 1911. I'm new to handguns and shooting but I did OK - the bad guy target was killed many times over - wanted to hang it in our bedroom but got one of those raised-eye looks from my wife. I had no problems with the pistols or ammo and the whole day was absolutely exhilarating!

You think???


If you are lucky enough to get a reliable one they are good little guns.
My first one was a stinker.
Second one was better.

I have ran several of these jars of reload ammo, and factory, through the guns and now trust them for carry.

And they are fun to shoot.

Me too, didn't need a new thread to chime in.

Finally got to try mine last week, the fired shell test was dated 5/16/2014.

I guess I did about 80 rounds, mostly WWB and Fiocchi FMJ.

First mag, last round, simple stovepipe.
This opportunity for a malf drill was no different than a speed reload, same as any other Glock.

After about a dozen mags, the first round of a mag (probably Fiocchi) didn't chamber; I didn't diagnose the malfunction because my training routine is to stay in the fight instead, and my tap-rack-bang drill worked fine, same as any other Glock.

The ejected round worked fine in the next mag; so I suspect it was just a hot, dirty, new-gun failure to go into battery, unless I carelessly limpwristed. Unless it happens again, I'll never know because I was more eager to quickly get off the next shot.

Halfway through the session I switched to my Ruger LCP and the difference was overwhelming. The Glock trigger was infinitely better, as were the sights, grip, and lack of perceived recoil. I never remembered how painful the LCP was to shoot, maybe that's why it was shot little and carried more.

Oh year, accuracy was the same as any other Glock, but I only tried punching one paper target at about 10 yards. I tended to shoot a bit to the left, maybe because it's a thin, light gun. And as usual for me, more misses went low than high, but still every round would have hit a face.

I only loaded 6 rounds per mag, didn't chamber and top up for 6+1 because I forgot. But since that's how I would carry it if holstered, that's on my list for next time.

Two simple malfs in the first dozen mags thru a brand new uncleaned & unlubed Glock is normal in my experience, hopefully my next range trip will be after I clean and lube it, and with a greater variety of ammo. I'm very satisfied with it, just like any other Glock.

Had my 42 to the range yesterday. Picked up a couple of boxes of American Eagle plus I put together 50 handloads of 95g Missouri Bullets over 3.2g of Tite Group. Round count is at 800 now, not one malfunction at all. Very happy with the hand loads. Tired of that $20.00 a box BS. I am really having fun shooting this little gun!
