Glock 42 slide cover plate



Strike Industries knows that sometimes a small component change can make all the difference in the world. They‘ve made it their business to make the improvements that other companies overlook. Everyone knows you love your Glock. They also know you really deserve a better Slide Cover Plate. What can you do about it? The Strike Industries Glock 42 Slide Cover Plate was designed to replace the plastic OEM slide cover plate on your G42. Strike’s cover plate is stronger and easier to remove than the original.

Custom G42 Slide Cover Plate by Strike Industries

There are lots of custom replacement slide plates for the Glock family of sidearms, but Strike Industries has gone beyond making a cosmetic change to making a true upgrade to the Slide Cover Plate as we once knew it. They’ve designed a slide cover plate that is easily removed without tools or the octopus routine that sometimes becomes necessary when removing the OEM Slide plates from many Glock pistols. Trust us, take the OEM plate off once more, and replace it with the Strike Industries Glock 42 Slide Cover Plate.

The Strike Industries Glock 42 slide cover plate is constructed from aircraft grade 6061 T6 Aluminum. It’s available in single or double button configurations with a durable anodized finish that will hold up far better than the plastic of OEM G42 Plates. Using the release button of the Strike Industries Glock 42 Slide Cover Plate, you can easily remove the plate and have access to the firing pin assembly and extractor depressor plunger, even in the field.
