Glock 42 UNOFFICIAL Armorer Update and Glock 26 Comparison
#Glock42 #Armorer #GSSF
A teardown and comparison, part by part, of the new Glock 42 .380 and a Glock 26 Gen 3, with specific assembly and disassembly tips. Explanation of steps unchanged from prior models are not provided, only unique instructions are explained.
In The Box
The Glock 42 ships in the same box as the later Gen3 and all Gen4 Glock models. Two six round magazines are included, along with a lock, manual packet, and a fired casing in dated envelope. The Glock 42 does not ship with a magazine loader. The Glock 42 six round .380 magazines are easy to load, requiring a loader even less than the 9mm models.
Field Stripping, Lubrication, and Reassembly
The Glock 42 field strips exactly as prior models. Once field stripped, the components are the slide, the barrel, the recoil spring assembly, the frame, and the magazine. Instructions are included in the factory Glock manual. Glock does not recommend further disassembly by non-armorers. Lubrication and reassembly are the same as prior models.
