Glock Teasing New SMALLER G42 Pistol

Glock Teasing New SMALLER G42 Pistol

By Steve Johnson

Glock are allegedly running the above advertisement teasing a new smaller pistol called the G42. This raises two questions. Firstly, what is this new pistol? Secondly, were are the G40 and G41 (Glock model numbers are sequential)?

If I had to make an educated guess, I would say the G42 will either be a slim-framed single stack 9mm pistol or a US-manufactured .380 ACP pistol. Glock’s line of .380 ACP pistols can only be sold to law enforcement in the USA because of the BATFE’s crazy import restrictions. The fact that there might be three new pistols (G40, G41, G42) may indicate a line of pistols, which makes me think a line of .380 ACP pistols may be on their way.

What do you think?

Thanks to Joel for the tip.
