LaserMax CenterFire WeaponLight for Glock 42

Glock 42 light

LaserMax officially introduced a weapon light for the Glock 42 pistol at the recent SHOT Show. This new light is part of the company’s CenterFire WeaponLight line. It is a polymer-framed unit that mounts under the frame and to the trigger guard similar to some of the laser aiming units currently on the market.

According to the company’s press release, the lights are rated to put out 100 lumens. However, the company’s web site shows a rating of “115+” lumens. The light is supposed to run for 75 minutes on a single CR2 battery.

The MSRP of the LaserMax CenterFire WeaponLight for the G42 is $149. The company advises the units are available now.

    Now to make them for the Glock 26. I have thought Drimson Trace really missed an opportunity my not making a lightguard for the Glock 26. It would be the only really viable mounted light for the baby Glocks, and they already made one for the 1911 with no rail. Maybe Lasermax will do it instead.

      I still don’t understand why anyone would want a Glock 42. Maybe I’ll rent one at the range someday, but I’m not really into sub-9×19 handguns.

    Just another doodad, like a laser, to hang on a pistol to show the bad guy where you are. Any light works in both directions. If you can see them they can see where you are. All they have to do is shoot just below the light in order to hit you center mass.
    Not for me. I’ll spend the money on ammo and practice.

      Hard to believe people with your mentality still exist. You should try some these gizmos and not assume people are using them as a crutch. There’s more pro’s than con’s after having training with light/lasers for years.

        I have had the opportunity to try, and train with, every thing that can be hung on a fire arm since I became a police and military firearms instructor in 1981.
        Not one of them replaces good quality training.
        Lights can be a vital part of safety when searching a room or building. But they are also a huge detrement to your safety if hung on a firearm.
        And yes people of my mentality, those who want to survive, still exist.
        I have not found a single reason to put a laser on a handgun.
        Most people who have lasers and or lights attached to a handgun will habitually bring the handgun to eye level while activating the device. Any bad guy worth his name knows this and simply shoots just below the light/laser source and puts rounds center of mass of the person holding illumination device.
        Stand in front of a mirror, in a dark room, activate the device, and see what the bad guy sees.
        I don’t like them ergo I don’t use or advocate them. If you like the use them, by all means. It’s your gun and your money.

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. I was just fiddling with my somewhat useless G42 crimson trace laser and wishing it was something practical like a light instead. Boom.

    Perhaps it should be called the “Uncurved”?

    they should make these for kahrs and rugers.
