In brief: ACL tear at age 42

Tough call but if you are experiencing instability you may have to consider repair. One reason to repair is to prevent further damage of menisci .
ACL tears can be treated non-operatively with success but you have to modify activities permanently. If you aren't willing to do that then surgery may be better answer for you. Must consider work as well, can you take time off? Can you work now?
