Glock 42 First Impressions

I like Glocks; I have several of them, I like them, and I recommend them to everyone who asks. Which is not to say that I don't like other guns; I do, and I regularly use Sigs, 1911s, and others as well. There was a lot of hype around the introduction of the Glock 42, Glock's new small, single-stack .380 ACP. There is a lot to like about it: It is Glock's first Made in USA gun (which is a sign of more to come, and a good thing), it is quite small and concealable, and will surely be successful.

Although I did not have a chance to actually fire it at Shot Show, as we got too caught up at Sig's Range Day, I was able to see it, handle it, and found that it is as solid and well-built as Glocks always are. The single-stack design is well executed, and while it maintains the Glock character, it shows us that they can make a top-notch single stack. This is a good thing, as single stacks have become the darlings of the retail concealed carry market, so I hope we will soon see single stack 9mm and .45 ACP models from them as well (can't wait for that!).

Some readers commented that Glock DOES have a single-stack .45, the little known Glock 36, and that is true. However, I consider the Glock 36 (released in 2000) to be simply a slightly slimmed-down version of their compact guns, and not a designed-from-the ground-up single stack. With its 6 round capacity and a grip that is thicker than it needs to be, a new design, based on the same principles used for the Glock 42 seems to be in order.

I would like to see a review on the Glock 41. I'm more interested in the 45 caliber.
