Held a Glock 44 .22 lr yesterday.

Yep. I want one. 


Feels like a G19/23 but with less weight (obviously). 

Trigger feels like any other factory Glock trigger. 
What I really like about this particular model is that it........feels like a defensive gun. Not a .22 lr pistol. 
In other words........if you already carry a Glock 19/23.......this would be a great training tool. 

Would I recommend going out and buying it as a purpose built .22 lr for plinking or hunting?  No. 
If you like Glocks. Shoot Glocks. Carry Glocks. 
Winner!!

    If it had a threaded barrel it would be perfect and on my list for Father’s Day,

    Looks like you gave it a thorough groping 😏

    What do you think of the price point? It seems high to me.

    My LGS tends to be high. I don’t buy new guns from them. 
    I’ll wait for a lower.......or “discounted” price.

    Safe to assume the same trigger upgrades that can be made to other Glocks are viable?

    Intweeeeeeging. . .

    Totally agree that there's no sense in buying that in the place of a dedicated .22 when there's plenty of sights-fixed-to-barrel options (Ruger MK?, Buckmark), but if you run a Glock a lot, or if you are of the modern "there are no rifles buy AR-15's and no pistols that aren't plastic and striker fired", this is certainly for you.

    I teach a lot of Glocks, so this is probably going to be essential...

    Plus shipping and transfer fee puts that at $400 in my neck of the woods. I can buy centerfire Glocks all day at that price(used), lots of other .22 pistols I would drop that money on at that price point.

    I'm interested in one specifically because 90% of my handgun shooting is with a Glock 19, but I will wait for some lower pricing.

    I agree with the others on the current price point.  I'd like to have one.  But I'll wait for the "I've gotta have one right now" pricing to fall off and the price to come down some.  I won't go $350+ for one.

    I'm sure aftermarket barrel manufacturers will see the need to put out threaded barrels for them pretty quick.  Also interested to see if they share parts with the G19/23, such as trigger connectors.  I like the adjustable rear sight, being as different 22lr ammo can shift POI quite a bit.
