    Looks like Glock is teasing a new model, the Glock 42, to be released next year. Finally a single stack 9mm perhaps?

    I'd settle for two rounds of .22LR!

    Who cares...and here's why:

    1. They're absurdly late to the party.

    2. They can barely keep up with production of current models.

    3. They should stick with what they know. Which are combat double stack handguns that are "supposedly bullet proof" but they still can't get gen 4's to run without issues.

    4. I'll believe it when I see it. Every year before shot show, they create a buzz in the handgun industry which if we remember from last year was a total bull**** white rabbit that amounted to nothing. Wasn't it some dumb Facebook page or something ridiculous?

    These threads get old:

    a.) Glock makes pistols that are TOO small.
    b.) Glock doesn't make a pistol to compete with the Xxx sub-compact model(s).

    You got the G36 in ss .45 or the G19, and everything else in between that you can want or build for Perfection.

    They have my attention. I'd be interested if they made a single-stack, subcompact 9mm even if they aren't the first to do so. Not sure why some people oppose having more viable options on the market.

    Same here. I wouldn't rush out and buy it right after it comes out, but I'd definitely look into it. I really like my G26, so I think it would take something significant from Glock for it to be replaced as my EDC.

    Here's the buzz from glocktalk - http://glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?p=20774274#_
    And this link was posted for G41 - http://www.sportsmans-depot.com/products/GLOCK-41-GEN-4-45ACP-5.3-AS-13RD-GLOCK-PG4130103.html

    So Glock 41 looks to be Gen4 45ACP and 5.3" barrel with 13 round magazine.


    Also, this link was posted for G42 - http://www.sportsmans-depot.com/products/GLOCK--GLOCK-UI4250201.html

    Supposedly the are skipping the Model 40 to avoid confusion with being a "Glock 40", which some people may take to mean a Glock chambered in .40 S&W.
    Not saying it is true, but that is what I have read about it.

    Oh booo! A double-stack .380? That hardly makes any sense to me.

    Well, if this is true, I can't say I'm surprised considering Glock's complete inability to pay attention to what their customers want.

    Well not what I would have liked, but I bet both products will sell just fine. Maybe next year!

    True, but in today's market I find it very hard to believe that a double-stack .380 would out sell a single stack 9mm or .380. I mean a double-stack .380....is that supposed to be a pocket pistol?

    Isn't the Glock 25 already a double stack .380?

    The long slide .45 has more of my interest. Might pick one of those up in 4 or 5 years.

    I would have preferred a G26 sized single stack 9mm. Oh well, maybe next time

    Yes the G25 and G28 are both .380 but not available in the U.S. for some reason.

    Now that Glock manufactures pistols in the USA, .380 G42 would not be subject to importation laws/restrictions.

    Since Glock is comparing the G42 to a lighter in the ad, perhaps G42 is a micro sized double-stack .380?

    Careful. Last year their "All New!" Model consisted of swapping parts between two existing models. (The 30S)

    Maybe this time they're putting a 21 slide on the 30 frame. If so, woo frickin' hoo.

    Let's see what they cobble together this time.

    I wish someone besides Kel-Tec would make a polymer .32 ACP

    Finding a P-32 is not easy and when I do find them the price is jacked up due to short supply.

    If I were going to get a 380 at this point I think it would be the Kahr CW380.

    Has anyone confirmed that the 42 is going to be a double stack 380? Maybe it will be a double stack 32.

    Can't imagine they would sell many .32s

    There are a lot of new folks buying guns for CCW as every state in the nation now has it. I'd be surprised if a .380 pocket pistol or a .32 pocket pistol with Glocks name and reputation behind it didn't sell surprisingly well. I'm surprised at how many Ruger LCP .380's are at my range every time I show up.

    For me, a .32 double stack Glock would be an absolutely must have gun. A .380 not so much. But I'd bet a .380 Glock would be pretty dang hot on the market.
