Video #3—Glock 42 Size Comparison: Just How Small Is This Thing?

The Precision Gun Reviews team compares the brand new Glock 42 (G42) with the existing Glock subcompact frame – the 27 and 26 – to determine the practical size differences between the two. While the overall dimensions are not greatly reduced, and we would have loved to see the .380 acp pistol shrunken down a little, the gun's width reduction is obvious next to the existing subcompacts, and the weight is especially notable, coming in at 12 or 13 ounces compared to 22 ounces – a little over half the weight.
