A .380 Glock (ugh) is very underwhelming.  Figure I will save myself several hundred dollars and continue to carry my Colt Agent .38. I continue to not see the fascination in the .380.  It's expensive

Apparently they are going to announce at shot show. I have a feeling the results are going to be a let down.

I think it's a helluva idea; and i think lots of first time CCW folks will buy it... My 238 weighs 15.2 ounces unloaded (...i think...)... The little glock weighs about 13 ozs... That's a good thing o

Just like their LAST "change the world" BS. I ain't holding my breath.

You guys are silly. I got some inside intel I'm really not supposed to share ... but they're going to introduce 2 new models at the SHOT show. The 42 a "microstack" 9mm, capacity 5 rounds with a 3.4 inch barrel. And the G21R, their first foray into revolvers. Here's a couple inside scoop pics I got the last time I was down there.

Nice touch with the trigger safety on the revolver. 

I'd bet that the G42 will be a single stack 9mm. How long has it taken Glock to figure out that there is a huge market for single stack handguns.

Official prediction

The Glock 40 will be a Practical Tactical model in 10mm, think large framed G34/35.

The Glock 41 will be a .45ACP version of the Glock 40.

The Glock 42 will be a single stack subcompact 9mm with a narrower frame and slide than the 26.

In approximately a year, a French police force or maybe Canadian, or even French Canadian, will complain about the G26 being too large for their plainclothes officers to conceal carry. They will make a Franken-Glock with a G26 frame and G42 slide, because they like the capacity of 10 rounds of 9mm but also like the slim slide of the G42. Then Glock will make a Glock 26S and people everywhere will start pocket carrying them in tactical cargo pants as the "new" thing.

If its anything other than a single stack 9mm.... Fail.

If it is a single stack 9mm I'll buy one too, if not I'm just going to get a PPS to carry when I need to go small.

I'm tired of waiting for a SS 9mm from them.

If it's a single stack micro 9mm, Glock would almost have to utilize metal mags for it not to be a fail, IMO. 

If they don't, Glock is going to have a tough time cutting enough width to make it worthwhile.

 

Hope they do or I hope I'm wrong.

Micro single stack 9 is my thought. Hope it is not a 380 that to me would be useless. If it is the 9 put me in line for one. That revolver is pretty cool I would buy one in 45acp but that is not going to happen.

Whatever the 42 ends up being , I sure hope that Glock will have tested it a lot before they sell them to get all the bugs out . I got burned by the CZ P-07 Duty when it was released and I am a CZ fan but that gun was a POS . CZ even sent me a whole new gun too. 

 Hopefully this 42 wont end up being another G36 with it's problem filled life or "hit and miss" type reliability .

I carry a 36 every day runs great have ran over 1000 rounds through it. Did not know there was a problem with them?

The Glock 36 had Many problems, mostly in the begining, that somehow went away.
