Glock G42

The new GLOCK 42, in .380 AUTO, is a slimline subcompact pistol engineered with the GLOCK Perfection promise and able to withstand the rigors of routine training. Made in the USA, the G42 is the smallest pistol GLOCK has ever introduced, making it ideal for pocket carry and shooters with smaller hands. Years of requests across market groups for a super-concealable, reliable single-stack .380 GLOCK pistol prompted extensive research and development to bring the GLOCK customer the G42.

    GLOCK G42

    All the rugged reliability you’ve come to expect from Glock Single-Stack Pistols has been loaded into the compact semiautomatic G42 .380 ACP. The smallest member of the Glock family, this pistol delivers outstanding handling and concealment with less kick than its larger siblings. Virtually indestructible polymer frame and grip lay a superb foundation for the sturdy gas-nitride-finish slider with fixed sights. Safe Action® fully automatic system employs three passive, independent mechanical safeties that engage and disengage as you fire. Two six-round single-stack magazines add concealment. Includes a durable plastic gun case.
