    Disappointed.
    Not a carry gun, target gun or anything else. I think this is for mall ninja types who want a glock but can't stomach paying more than .10 per round. If I'm getting a semi auto .22 I want good capacity (10 is lame) or superior accuracy (which I doubt this will produce with it's dingus trigger and short sight radius). Not even a good training aid as weight and recoil won't simulate anything. I love glocks, this thing is just pitiful. If it were a g42 size in 25 acp with a 12+/- round capacity, I wouldn't criticize. If you're marketing a mouse gun might as well go all out. And legendary , really? Only thing legendary about it was the hype.

    That's the gsg thing, right? My buddy has one with about 20,000 rds through it, believe it or not. No, it hasn't been smooth or reliable. Mags are expensive and strange, take down is not acceptable (to me) and the accuracy is barely acceptable . but it hasn't cracked much. The hammer hit part of the slide and chipped it off but now that it's got some clearance all is well:confused:

    Yeah. But when it was released no one said anything about gsg. My book, nor box, nor gun say gsg. As a matter of fact
    20190521_155510.jpg

    how was the early consumer supposed to know since it plainly says made by jp sauer and sohn.
    And yeah that one has 20k on it too id say. Almost all bulk too. had a nice single action trigger. DA was pretty sorry. I actually liked it and may well buy the glock to take its spot as a training tool. I have seen many mosquito broke in the same spot.

    My mistake,I didn't notice yours is the 226 looking one. My buddy has the 1911 looking one. When you said double action I took a second look.
    Sad part is he & I both bought 22 pistols at the same time in 2008 or so. He got the gsg and I got a 22/45. We shot 1000 rds each every other weekend for a year, at the end of that year his gun was basically junk and I sold mine for $20 less than I paid for it. All the while my ruger was accurate and as reliable as a rimrire can be with the ability to mount optics - which I did, and his made 4" groups at 10 yards while mine made 1". I paid less to. I have a low opinion of gsg.

    I'm interested for the right price and if the thing feeds bulk ammo, I'll wait for the reviews to hit the net before buying. I had an advantage arms conversion kit years ago and enjoyed it but the only rounds I could reliably cycle through it were the rounds they told you not to use in the product manual (thunderbolts), everything else including CCI would jam frequently so I dumped it. I'm sitting on a lot of 22lr and would be interested in using to for cheap practice.

    Oh, thank the Lord! Now I can finally sleep at night! A new plastic .22 pistol -- oh, the indescribable joy! What we've ALL been praying for, lo these past many years!

    Thank you, Gaston! Our prayers have been answered!

    I agree that this new Glock may experience some growing pains, but have to disagree with the poor customer service comment. My experience has been quite the opposite.

    I hope that this new Glock does well and that they sell a lot of them. They just aren't going to sell one to me.

    They really should have built it into a G42, not a G19.

    Especially if they’re only going to make 10 round magazines.

    I just have to ask those who are interested in this why they would buy it over other .22's currently available?

    Because it mimics the G19 I reckon.

    Good point. If I was one that carried the 19 or shot it often, I would definitely get this pistol. Even the same trigger. I wish I had a 22.cal in the same size etc as my carry guns. (like the LCR22).
    As Jim Reeves pointed out, the fact that it is made in Europe where 22.cal is taken more seriously may be a good thing. And how well it works with American ammo will be interesting.
    So far, I do not see much difference than the Glock vs SR22, which has been a very reliable pistol. Not that accurate, but reliable but ok for fast action training. Will the Glock Polygonal barrel help?

    I doubt they'll be using polygonal rifling, not really any jacket 22 lr out there.

    Why? Is there a big market for compact 22 pistols? There are other compact 22 autos on the market and I can’t think of one that is really doing all that great.
    Some people get short sighted with their own wants and needs. Glock sales guns world wide, not just the American market.
    First off the Glock 19 is one of Glock’s most popular handguns and the G23 is the same size.
    If you own a 19 or a 23, the 44 will fit the holsters you already have. Plus the frame and trigger are the same size which is a big plus.
    Hell, I bought a Kimber 22 convention for a 1911 and ended up building a frame for it to use as a trainer.
    There are many shooters that like to train with 22s due to low recoil and low cost of ammunition. Even if you buy better quality 22 ammo for around 8 to 10 cents a round, that still beats 17 plus cents a round for 9mm.
    About the biggest complaint about the 44 that has been said over and over in this topic is that it only has a 10 round magazine. One member every point out that the 10 round Mag was the worst thing about the gun, but the goes on to say that his 10 shot Ruger was a great gun.
    Just look at the 22 autos on the market. Most of them only have 10 round magazines and no one is crying.
    Now if the 44 ends up being a great seller, I’m pretty sure that Glock or someone else will make a higher capacity magazine.
    I’m still undecided if I will get one, but I think it will be a big seller for Glock.

    well I have other 22s but will be purchasing this one. I will be buying it because I shoot glocks well, this is supposed to have the same trigger as the gen 5 guns, so that will be great for me. I carry Glocks for defense so having a 22 to use with cheap ammo just makes sense. Its pretty light, an ounce lighter with the mag than a smith and wesson j-frame. I think the hybrid slide is a neat concept.

    Those that are hating on the G44 are most likely the same ones that love the 22lr AR rifles. Same concept, cept the glock hate just isn't there.

    There’s no doubt it will be a big seller, it’s a Glock and it is falling into a very large segment of the consumer gun population. And I admit the design is different with the polymer slide with steel inserts, it’ll be interesting to look one over in the gun store. I’ll probably own one eventually but it’s going to be pretty low on my list for quite a while as it doesn’t do anything that my Walther PPQ M2 .22 doesn’t do, and my Walther holds more rounds and has proven itself.

    Although not earth shattering, this would be a nice addition and training aid for Glock users. I've considered getting the M&P Compact 22 as a companion for my Shield, but I've had higher priorities.

    Since I do nit own any Glocks currently I have no reason to get one

    So .22s in general are not big sellers? I haven't seen sales numbers but if that's the case, why would Glock get into that market years after S&W and Ruger? And with 10 rounds. And not compact. I also would rather have seen the 44 in a pocket, emergency back up size.

    Call me paranoid but I don't like all the writing on the wall. Biden says 9mm is too big and some states already have a 10 round limit. Hopefully Glock is just being prepared for what the communists might do, vs having inside info of what will be forced down our throats.

    Will a ten round .22 be the new MAX caliber for legal citizens? Luckily the criminals will turn in their 40s and 45s so we'll all be on level ground.:uhoh:

    Go ahead call me paranoid, hopefully I'm totally wrong.
    It just doesn't make sense for Glock to get into a smallish, already flooded market and also play to a silly low capacity limit.

    This pretty much describes me. I use Ruger MkIIIs as trainers and 'spend a sunny morning having fun just plinking' pistols, but there is no doubt that they don't have the same grip and trigger as my carry Glock. Having a Glock 22LR just makes sense, especially if it winds up being in the same cost envelope as a AA / TacSol 22LR upper. I'd prefer the G44 to be built on the fullsize (17/22/31) or 43X/48 frame, but that's just me.

    In fairness - the current crop of Glock 22LR upper conversions (e.g. AA, TacSol) also ship with proprietary 10rd magazines, so I'm not understanding the hate on Glock for simply falling in line with industry convention (even as I admit that it's intellectually lazy for them to have done that). I don't understand why Glock would not at least try to start at 15rds, but I really don't think that it matters much - the mag capacity issue will be resolved by the marketplace in short order now that the G44 is a standard OEM pistol offering. I expect that MagPul will be right on this..... :)

    When was the last time you were in a real gun store, or stopped to look at the 22 handguns in a gun store. The 22 market for handguns is alive and well.
    Also check out the mag capacity on most 22 autos handguns. You will find that most are 10 rounds.

    Intellectually Lazy...yup.

    It's primary audience to sell to would be Glock 19 owners, wait for it...how many rounds does a standard capacity magazine Glock 19 hold?

    But Glock is not a risk taking company, they pride themselves it seems on being boring, and boringly reliable. So avoiding any hiccups with trying to shove 15 rounds in a rimfire magazine, they will continue to maintain their boring reliability. Let the aftermarket magazines take the reliability heat instead of Glock, I guess.

    Probably, not a bad way to go, they have me as someone who trusts them as my CCW firearm.
