About Glock 42
Glock Ges.m.b.H., trademarked as Glock is one of the most famous and successful firearm producer, well known all over the world. Engineer Gaston Glock, company's founder who had no experience with firearms manufacture or design, became one of the most successful firearms designer of all times. Glock had extensive experience in advanced synthetic polymers, knowledge of which was very important in the company's design of the first commercially successful line of polymer frame pistols.
Beginnings of this company were very interesting. Gaston Glock overheard a talk of two Austrian colonels, who were talking about the Army's Request for Proposal(RFP) for new short firearm. Glock asked the colonel if they need a new gun and he get a positive answer. He started the project immediately but as it were just a hobby for him. He had never used any gun before. He bought Walther P38, standard Austrian army duty gun, CZ 75, Beretta 92, Sig Sauer P220 9x19mm pistols. He started to stripe them down and when he found out how it is constructed he assembled them again. This method helped him to assimilate their manufacturing procedures and mechanical principles necessary for gun producing. Austrian army appealed to him that he has to show serial production gun for tests, not a prototype.
Glock answered he could design completely new gun in fixed term. So the construction of their new gun would not be so difficult, the gun should be made of less than 40 parts, that were placed in independent subgroups such as trigger mechanism, safety set and so on. It allowed to gunsmiths easy and quick replacing.
The 42 model is a subcompact, slim-line pistol and has the slimmest Glock frame, that is proper for concealed carry, also a new trigger system, dual recoil spring assembly, reversible enlarged magazine catch, thumb rest and adjustable rear Glock sights. Like all other Glock models, the Glock 42 sports polygonal rifling and locked-breech operation system. The cartridge of many gun model, among others, also the Glock 42, was introduced by Fabrique Nationale of Belgium and designed by John Browning. It has achieved worldwide success and has also been adopted as the standard pistol cartridge by a several governments.
One of the most important reasons for the round's success is that it is the largest practical cartridge, that is easily adapted also to small automatic pocket pistols. Ballistics fall far short of the 9mm Luger, however still proves adequate for most self-defence situations. The round of the 42 has established quite a niche position in this role, as it often being chosen over more traditional small calibers, for instance the .25 or .32 Autos. Unloaded Glock 42 weighs 13.76 ounces and overall length is only 5.94 inches. The barrel length is 3.25 inches long, and the maximum magazine capacity is 6 rounds.
