Lots of people think no pocket gun is complete without a laser pointing device. Face it, small pistols, whether they’re semi-autos or wheel guns have, at best, rudimentary sights. Now LaserLyte is out with their bolt-on contribution to GLOCK’s most pocketable personal pistol, the G42. And you’ll be able to get a free alternate housing later this year to make the new zapper fit a GLOCK 26 or 27, too. Press release after the jump . . .

COTTONWOOD, AZ– LaserLyte®, innovators in firearms laser technologies, introduces the latest in the TGL series for GLOCK® pistols, featuring ambidextrous activation, dual modes and auto-off are now shipping to distributors, big box stores and internet retailers across the country. When the laser is mounted it matches the gun’s dust cover and trigger guard with perfect fit. The LaserLyte® TGL UTA-YY Kit fits the GLOCK® 42 pistol.

Each TGL package comes with two housings per model and will fit two guns for the price of just one laser. Simply use a Philips head screw driver to remove the single screw to swap out the laser housings. A laser swap can easily be made in under a minute. Initial installation onto the gun will take less than five minutes and the laser does not require removal in order to change out batteries. Later this year an additional housing will be offered for the GLOCK®26/27 pistol. The housing (laser not included) will be available free of charge to anyone that purchased a UTA-YY when it starts shipping. Please keep checking the LaserLyte website for shipping details.

The LaserLyte® TGL GLOCK® 42 Laser gets sport shooters and professionals on the target faster, increasing accuracy and overall hits. For more information, visit

    • Thanks Paul! The price is right. I will get one for my 42 as soon as I have one.
      Now if I can just get my hands on a 42 with all the back orders…..

  1. “Face it, small pistols, whether they’re semi-autos or wheel guns have, at best, rudimentary sights.”

    Not necessarily. SIG P238 has excellent night sights and the Glock 42 has some great options from Ameriglo.

    • The G42 is definitely one of the few that comes with “real” (same as you’d get on a full size pistol) sights. Still, the sights won’t blind a bad guy and that’s what the laser is for, right?

  2. Okay, the name of the laser almost makes me think of nucleotide codons for amino acids. I might also be a giant nerd…

  3. Meh, tiny pocket pistols are designed for combat at contact distance and sights are entirely unnecessary at that range. Just point and shoot. For that reason I would not personally put a laser on a pocket pistol.

    On the other hand, pocket pistols tend to print in your pocket (even with pocket holsters) and that laser sight may help change the shape of the printing to look like something other than a pocket pistol. Your mileage may vary.

  4. I can’t find anywhere appropriate to post this, so I’ll just leave this here:

    The first episode of “Noir”, Colion Noir’s (bizarre, frenetic) show on “NRA Freestyle”.

    I especially liked his co-hosts (very) abbreviated skirt, though.

  5. Doesn’t the height difference between the laser and the barrel mean that the point of aim (the ‘dot’) and the point of impact will vary a lot with distance?
    If you zero it in at say 15 yards, some back-of-the-brain trigonometric calculations indicate, to me, that it will hit too low closer and too high farther away, and rapidly.
    And just having the laser pointing parallel to the barrel just don’t make any sense.

    • You’re correct that there would be a deviation between point of aim and point of impact with the laser parallel to the barrel, however that should only account for the point of impact being perhaps 1 inch low at all ranges. Given that this is a defensive pistol intended for use at relatively short ranges I would consider this acceptable.
