Default Glock Model 42 380 Cal.

While teaching in Florida this week I had the chance to experience the New Glock Model 42 380 Cal. Pistol.
As previously stated the 380 is not my favorite choice of caliber although I carry a Kahr P-380 most of the time. This for the simple reason it is very small, conceals very well under light clothing and is also very light even when loaded. And it is best to have something on you than back in the car or truck console or glove box!
The New Glock Model 42 380 Pistol that was just unveiled at the Shot Show 2014 was a very nice little pistol. It shot excellent right out of the box and was as easy to shoot as any 22 cal pistol I have ever fired. And accurate! Since head shots were possible at 25 yards which was impressive to say the least! I was very impressed with the little pistol. It is a scaled down version of the Glock regular pistols. Functions and operates exactly the same so no new frills or functions to learn. The operation, teardown and function are exactly the same as the present Glock Pistols. After looking at it in detail and firing it I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a good small, good quality, and functional CCW or Backup pistol. And would also make an excellent ladies pistol.

Here are some specifications on the New Glock Model 42 Pistol:

Cal: 380
Overall Length: 5.94 in.
Width: .94 in.
Height: 4.13 in.
Weight 13.76 oz.
Weight Loaded 14.36 oz.
Trigger Pull 5.5 Lbs.
Trigger Travel: .49 in.
Magazine Capacity: 6 Rounds + 1 In the Chamber (7 total)

I agree with everything posted above. This is a very nice little pistol and Glock is going to sell a lot of them. The size is larger that an LCP or Bodyguard 380, just enough so it is comfortable shooting all day. But not to large to conceal easily. Well done Glock.
Here it is next to my cold weather CCW M&P9c.

I picked one up a couple of weeks ago, even though I had no intention of buying one. I couldn't see a need for a .380, but once I saw it and held it, I was sold. I like that it is bigger than a Bodyguard or an LCP, those are a little too small for my taste.
I've seem quite a few complaints with the slide not locking back, ammo issues, but mine has run great. I'm glad I bought it.

Ditto for me also..I've run about 150 through it, no issues. Also, it's easier to hit where you aim than with an LCP.

Just did a range day and put another 100 rounds through my Glock 42. This is truly a shooters 380 and is heads and shoulders above all the other small 380s I've owned. You can comfortably shoot this baby Glock all day long.

It's very comfortable to shoot and incredibly accurate.

I may have to look into getting one of these for the old lady. Sounds like a good enough excuse to me.

I was thinking about this for my wife as well. What is the recoil like, if any?

Tim, While there is noticeable recoil it's lighter than say an LCP or a Bodyguard. I put 100 rounds thru mine yesterday with no discomfort, something I could never do when I had an LCP.
