And the G43 a longslide 357sig or at least a 357 barrel for the G35.

I own a few Khars and like most things in life they are a compromise of what we want. I find them uncomfortable mostly due to the short trigger reach.
IMO the perfect gun would be the size of a Colibri (smallest semi auto ever) that shoots .44Mag as comfortably as a full size pistol shoots .22LR.
Ain't gonna happen of course so, what matters will be the entire package of caliber, size, quality, ergonomics etc.
If it fills the needs of the customers, it will be a success, otherwise, a joke by Glock.

No idea on the pricing, but it will be a blue label gun, so definitely less than retail.

I will also be buying a G42, but it will probably be through a regular/non-LE dealer.
Nice! congrats on your purchase. I will have to wait until January and we know for sure what the size of this 42 is. But based on what the speculation is, I think I will end up getting a Kahr P380.

I just placed my order for a Glock 41 also!!!

I just contacted my local Glock law enforcement distributor and placed an order. Was told they just received information on the G 41, and they had placed an order with Glock.

Was told the G 41 was a Tactical .45 ACP Gen 4. The Blue label gun comes with three 13 round magazines. My price for the Blue label Glock 41 with standard sights will be $438.00.,which is about $40.00 cheaper than the Glock 35. The standard Glock models go for $398.00.

They did not have any information on the Glock 42 yet. I guess this means the Glock 41 will be released first followed by the Glock 42.

The guys at Triangle superimposed a G26 over the Glock 42 outline, using the trigger guard as a guide.
The dimensions appear to be the same as those of the G26 with a slightly longer grip.
To me it means that they tried to extend the grip a little to get the rounds they wanted in a single stack. So, I think we are talking about a single stack 9mm the size of the G26 with a slightly longer grip.
If true it will be interesting to see if the width reduction is worth the extra length of the grip. I hate long grips for carry, they stick out too much.
Single stack small 9s tend to be approximately .25" thinner but they use thinner metal magazines. A G42 with plastic mags will probably be somewhere in between.
I personally like double stack magazines, with a tapered round like the 9mm, on a full single stack magazine, the front of the top round can be unsupported leading to a bullet nose dive. Double stack are less likely to do that thanks to the staggering of the rounds. You can have a reliable foot long double stack magazine, can't do that with a single stack.
Just a thought. What do you think?

According to this post, the G42 will be a single stack .380, not 9mm.

A single stack G26 with a slightly longer grip would be 7rds which makes it fall right in line with the Shield & XDs 9mm. If this was indeed what Glock released I will be one of the first in line to order.

Anyone else nervous about Glocks legendary reliability reputation with th advent of a micro 380? Is there any manufacturer that has made one that has been as reliable as their bigger caliber brothers and sisters?

I have only owned 2 Walther PPK/s's and 2 Kel Tec P3AT's, but none of them ever had a single mallfunction. I trust Glock more than any other brand, but the reality is that I have had 100% reliability over many years fo shooting from plenty of brands, calibers and models.

When I say that the problems people on this forum complain about are nearly 100% shooter-caused, I am absolutely serious and speaking from 30 years of shooting and teaching experience.

I'm sure the 41 will have no issues and will please the 45 ACP crowd and Glock faithful.

The single stack 380 is a big game changer for Glock. This is a departure from the LE/military market first business plan. A small 380 is aimed directly at the CC market. Will be interesting to see and handle the single stack Glock 380. I personally would wait to make sure all the bugs are worked out.

41 I believe. 42 is a 9. They can "say" 380 till the official release and then make it 9.

Too late to the show though.

Also, I'd rather see a G34 style gun in 10mm rather than 45.
I think both will be here soon now...

By soon, I mean the next couple of years.
