About Glock 42

The GLOCKĀ® 42 Semi-Auto Pistol is a slim, subcompact semi-auto pistol designed specifically for concealed carry. Made with the same materials and quality control as all GLOCK semi-automatic pistols, the G42 is a carry gun you can count on at the moment of truth. Internally, the GLOCK 42 employs the same striker, short-recoil operated, and locked-breech barrel as the larger framed GLOCK pistols, and uses a dual recoil spring assembly as the Gen4 pistols. The Safe-Action trigger system makes shooting in stressed situations infallible. The rough textured polymer grip provides a solid hold, and while quite concealable, it offers shooters enough surface area for ultimate control. The white-dot front sight and the white-bracket rear sight provide rapid acquisition in dim lighting situations. The length, shape, finger rest, and size of the trigger opening are the same as the larger pistols, and the trigger is same size and shape as the smooth-faced triggers used on the Gen4 pistols, making them all familiar to those who already use GLOCK pistols. The GLOCK 42 Semi-Auto Pistol is a reliable, easy to maintain firearm that's perfect for everyday carry. The G42 comes with 2 ultra-reliable single-stack 6-round magazines.

Great little pistol. I have put 450 rounds down range both FMJ and JHP without any malfunctions. I know there may have been some reliability issues with earlier G42s but the newer pistols seem to run great. It seems that Glock corrected any issues. Do not

Great carry pistol.

I've had this a week, only put 50 rounds through it so far, but it's great. Easy to handle, and very accurate to about 25 feet.

I bought this as a gift for my girlfriend. I carry a G43 and she loved shooting it so as she already had a 380 the G42 was the logical choice. She loves it. Bud's had by far the best price..

Feels great in the hand. My wife is able to shoot and load this thing with ease. Had some feeding and ejection issues the first time on the range. I kind of expected this, being a small caliber. After some extensive cleaning and polishing, we had zero iss
