Glock’s new G41 Gen4 is a practical-tactical .45 caliber pistol designed to maximize sight radius while improving weight distribution and balance. The new model is built with a G34 slide width on a G21 Gen4 frame and is 1.5 ounces lighter than the G21 Gen4.

“The longer barrel and slide on the G41 Gen4 help to reduce muzzle flip and felt recoil, while the longer sight radius makes it more accurate for competition or duty use,” said Glock Vice President Josh Dorsey. “This pistol is ideally suited for tactical use on and off the range.”

Glock's newest .45 ACP is ready for competition.

The G41 Gen4 comes with all the standard features of the Glock Generation 4 pistol group, including the Modular Back Strap design, Gen4 rough textured frame surface and dual recoil spring assembly.

The company also launched the new G42—the smallest Glock pistol ever introduced—for pocket carry and other deep concealment carry methods.

Years of requests across all market groups for a super-concealable .380 Glock pistol prompted extensive development to bring the Glock customer the G42.  The slim design of the G42 fits the hands of any shooter; specifically it gives women or those with smaller hands a comfortable option like they’ve never seen before.

“This slimline subcompact pistol is able to withstand the rigors of any situation,” said Dorsey, commenting on the durability of Glock’s newest model. “It’s safe, simple and fast. The G42 is a Glock in every sense.”

Glock’s smallest pistol uses the same Safe Action System found in all Glock pistols, is backed by more than 25 years of engineering excellence and comes with the Glock Limited Lifetime Warranty. Carry with confidence.

Glock's first "pocket pistol" is also the company's first .380 ACP available to American consumers.

Both of Glock’s new pistols – the G41 Gen4 and G42 – will be unveiled at the SHOT Show, January 14-17, 2014 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, in Las Vegas, NV.

    As a retired Law Enforcement Officer, I have owned and carried Sigs, Colts and everything else, but I discovered Glocks and now own nothing but, 27, 30 and 21. I do a little gunsmithing and find for the quality and price, Glocks can not be beat.

      As a municipal police officer who’s issued weapon is a G22, I love my Glocks and look forward to purchasing the new G42 when ot comes out.

  4. Douglas Williams says:

    Never cared for a Glock, until I bought a 23. Guess my next will be a 41

  5. Anton says:

    I wonder if the new .380 glock could be easily converted to 9x18mm ?

  6. Richard Bomar says:

    As a retired Sheriff and federal police officer I have carried everything from wheel guns to Glocks. The Glocks are the safest and most reliable pistols ever made. Being an instructor and armourer I have never encounter with breakage or malfunction with the Glocks.
