I was on my way to a Glock match, ironically enough, when I learned that Glock has ended its media embargo on their two new models, which I previously couldn’t talk about until the 6th per Non-Disclosure Agreement. Harris Publications got my short preview on them up on Saturday. When I viewed it (it may have been corrected by now) the video cut off in mid-sentence just when I was starting to discuss accuracy of the Glock 42 in .380. At a full 25 yards, this little pocket pistol kept Winchester 95 grain full metal jacket under four inches, and shot even tighter with Remington Golden Saber 102 grain hollow points. Buffalo Bore’s popular hard cast lead 100 grain load kept four out of five in four inches at 25 yards, a dimension widely considered to be “acceptable combat accuracy” with full size service pistols much larger than this wafer-thin, 13 or so ounce pocket pistol. The 41 will compete with long-slide polymer frame .45s such as the Springfield XD(m). The long, thin slide gives the “wand-like” handling of the Glock 34 9mm and Glock 35 in .40 that have made them so popular in IDPA and USPSA competition, respectively, but with 13-1 rounds of .45 ACP. It put all shots under two inches at 25 yards with Remington 185 grain hollow point and Federal 230 grain +P. Testing on this end, begun in December, will continue, but so far we’re happy with both and haven’t been able to make either pistol malfunction.
