    Sorry if repost. Looks like the .380 is confirmed.

    Glock 42 - Imgur - looks like this link is dead now... sorry.

    Yes. It's been known as a .380 for quite some time.

    I'm more interested in the G41.

    Why handicap yourself with a 380acp when you can get a G26 which is just a tiny bit larger and get a full 9x19mm? :confused:

    I agree, picking up a G26 next month.However, my wife can't handle the 9 so we picked her up the sig p238.She shoots it very well.Better than nothing i say.

    :D

    Have you tried adding a Tungsten Guide Rod Assembly to the Glock G26 and using the lighter 115gr ammo in it? That'll take a lot of the recoil out of the gun because of the extra weight up front and less inertia from the lighter bullet. Those little SIG P238 pistols seem like they'd be pretty light and have about the same recoil impulse as a heavier 9x19mm would have. Although I did have a Walther P380 and it was like shooting a 22lr, no real recoil at all. Anyway, just some thoughts on making the 9x19mm a bit easier to shoot. ;)

    No problem, it is going to be a while before it's actually in my hand. It is for wife but if she doesn't like I am sure I will.

    Honestly was hoping the leaked Stat photos were fake. I would have strongly considered getting it if it was a 9mm. I'm sure it will sell like crazy cause ppl love glock but a single stack 9mm would sell much more IMO.

    Glock already has a double stack 380acp on the market that can't be imported because of stupid ATF laws. I guess if this IS a 380acp it must be one that's being built here in the U.S. but like the others have said, I really hope it turns out to be a single stack 9x19mm. I think it'd sell better IMHO.

    Not sure what the Glock folks were thinking with this one. But they must have had a call for it because I can not imagine them releasing a product that would not sell.
    Oh well glad im a XD guy
