LOW-LIGHT POCKET POWER
No other single individual in modern times has shaped the tactical handgun world more than Gaston Glock. His utilitarian sidearms introduced the planet to the polymer pistol frame and striker-fired trigger. Now, deep into the Information Age, Glock handguns are available in myriad shapes, sizes and calibers.
Glock was a bit late hopping aboard the .380ACP pocket pistol train, but its G42 shrinks all that is good about full-sized Glock service pistols to something that will ride comfortably in your pocket. The magazine holds six rounds, and the trigger is the same 5.5-pound Safe Action mechanism found on other standard Glock pistols.
Lasermax built its business around serious laser and illumination accessories for tactical firearms. This company’s guide rod lasers replace the guide rods of your favorite tactical pistols at literally no penalty in weight and bulk. The white light module these lasers produce for the G42 wraps around the gun as if it were born there.
The Lasermax G42 weapon light melts around the host pistol to dissolve any pesky corners. It sports a recoil-proof, 115-lumen LED white light that is selectable between “constant on” and “strobe” functions. The intuitive tap on/tap off switch is easy to use, even when stressed, and the light uses powerful lithium CR-2 batteries. The resulting combination offers room-clearing, low-light flexibility—all in a package that will ride comfortably inside the front pocket of your jeans.
