SMYRNA, Ga. --(Ammoland.com)- Today GLOCK, Inc. announced the launch of its newest pistol – the GLOCK 42. The G42 is the smallest GLOCK pistol ever introduced, making it ideal for pocket carry and other deep concealment carry methods.

Years of requests across all market groups for a super-concealable .380 GLOCK pistol prompted extensive development to bring the GLOCK customer the G42 pistol.

The slim design of the G42 fits the hands of any shooter; specifically it gives women or those with smaller hands a comfortable option like they’ve never seen before.

“This slimline subcompact pistol is able to withstand the rigors of any situation,” said GLOCK Vice President Josh Dorsey, commenting on the durability of GLOCK’s newest model. “It’s safe, simple and fast. The G42 is a GLOCK in every sense.”

    1. When will they be for sale. How much will they be?

      I really think that it was about time glock came out with their own 380, cant wait to get my hands and own one, but, how much and when will they be out on the market?

    3. already on gunbroker.com for about $550

    4. Six round capacity? Really?

    5. I found them for $319 and $450

    6. *Yawn*.Wake me up when Glock comes out with something that I might actually care about.How stupid…

    7. The GLOCK spokesman on the Shotshow video said retail will be about $480. They may be available around $400 at some point but I bet the 42 will mostly be really hard to find for some time.

      They finally come out with one for the public when 380 ammo is never harder to find.
      Good job, Glock !

    9. This isn’t I’d be interested in at all. If I wanted a known 380 I’d just get the Ruger. Why don’t they market these for women only. My hands would swallow that toy. I’m not impressed.

    10. “This isn’t I’d be interested in at all. If I wanted a known 380 I’d just get the Ruger. Why don’t they market these for women only. My hands would swallow that toy. I’m not impressed.”

      There are some absolute trolls on here. Lets cry about 6 rounds, then don’t buy a single stack. Cry about it being small, seriously? It is not a woman only market since not all men have ape hands. I have smaller hands myself and the traditional sized Glock grips are always a bit bulky……….AND since when has a Glock been a comfortable conceal? This will fill a very specific niche. This is a niche that has been very competitive as of late. The XDs should be a testament to that. I personally cant wait to shoot it and see if it will replace my PK380.
