G42 offers the benefits of the Glock platform in a truly pocket-size pistol

American consumers can finally benefit from an ultracompact deep-concealment pistol designed by the legendary Austrian company: the G42 Shooting Illustrated asked Duane A. Daiker to take a look at the latest from GLOCK: the G42 ...

Glock G42
Few handguns have been as highly anticipated as the single-stack Glock chambered in .380 ACP. This year, American consumers can finally benefit from an ultracompact deep-concealment pistol designed by the legendary Austrian company: the G42.

Undoubtedly, Glock was late to the party with a micro-size .380 ACP handgun. By the time Ruger introduced its LCP in 2008, the race to produce miniature .380 ACP pistols was well underway. Similar offerings appeared from most of the major manufacturers, and the “9 mm Kurz” was the hot pistol caliber for several years. Although Glock had models in most every popular semi-automatic chambering, a .380 ACP was noticeably absent from its lineup—at least in the United States. Glock actually has a double-stack .380 ACP available in overseas markets: the G25. U.S. law, however, prohibits domestic sale of the G25 due to import restrictions.
