Glock unveils for the first time in Asia Glock 42 .380 caliber the smallest pistol of its range.
At DSA 2014, the Defence Services Asia Exhibition in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), the Austrian small arms manufacturer Glock unveils the smallest pistol of its range, the Glock 42. Weighing 390 gr, the newest GLOCK on the block, the GLOCK 42, is also the smallest. Yet, its footprint—its impact not only on the consumer market, but also on the firearms industry at large— is sure to be as sizable as that of any GLOCK, full-size or compact, heretofore released.

The game-changing GLOCK 42, chambered in .380 AUTO, measures less than 24mm wide and 155mm long overall, making it ideally suited for everyday concealed carry, whether in a pocket, under a jacket, behind the back or on an ankle. Unlike comparably "pocket-sized pistols, however, the GLOCK 42 shoots, well, like a GLOCK—that is to say, smoothly, reliably and exceedingly accurately. Dual recoil springs, combined with the pistol's shock-reducing polymer frame, keep recoil to a minimum, quickening target re-acquisition and improving shooter comfort.

The GLOCK 42's white-outline fitted sights, adjustable for windage, offer users an easy-to-see sight picture, while 360-degree grip texturing provides for a comfortable yet secure grip. Many micro pistols are a pain to shoot; the GLOCK 42 is a joy.

Other GLOCK-standard features to be found on the GLOCK 42 are GLOCK's proprietary corrosion-resistant, black, surface-hardened finish—part and parcel of the GLOCK's legendary durability—and SAFE ACTION® fire control system, which prevents the pistol from firing unintentionally while allowing for near-instantaneous employability—aspects essential to a pocket pistol, but only to be found on a GLOCK.
