    Just installed this system on my wife’s Glock 42. It is awesome and I highly recommend it. The 42 serrations on the slide are located at the back of the slide and are sometimes difficult to get a good grip. This system makes racking a breeze.

    First, it’s important to understand I carry un-chambered as an extra safety precaution. I’ve purchased every charging handle on the market for the Glock 42 and HANDS DOWN, the GCH42 is the most comfortable, easy to install and effective charging handle you can add to your Glock 42. My cycle times and “on target” times have been cut in half by adding this beauty to my daily carry gun. Thank you Recover Tactile for the intelligent design and wonder item.

    Great product, works perfectly!

    Bought one of these to try out for my father who has lost some grip strength. Very easy to install and now he can rack the slide. After trying it out, bought 3 more!

    As always, well made and designed product! I will keep buying from Recover!

    Makes racking the Glock 42 slide much easier since the Glock 42 slide is small and doesn’t have enough real-estate to grab.

    Installed on my daily carry Glock 42. Much better to grab a hold of than the Vickers Tactical I was using. Only down side is with the handle attached to the slide and the G42 rail attached to the body, the gun cannot be assembled or disassembled. The edges of the two pieces interfere before the front locking block. One or the other needs to be removed.

    Great item! The Glock 42 is a great gun but it’s small and I found it hard to rack with my arthritis. The charging handle makes all the difference in the world! Much easier to rack and run the slide stop.

    My wife and I have some arthritis in our hands and racking a slide quickly was becoming difficult. This product was just what we needed. We can quickly and safely rack the slide. Very sturdy, easy to install and doesn’t hang up on the holster. Highly recommend this product.

    Great product. Easy to install and makes the Glock 42 even smoother to operate. With the narrow slide, it makes the gun much simpler to rake the slide back. Very cleaver idea.
