    Regardless of the political situation prices are going up on everything. Ammo included. Who here besides me would love to have a .22 LR Glock as a practice tool? My wife won't shoot anything else so having a .22 that is as close as possible to her M19 would be an ideal situation. Or, just being a late Glock guy have/do they make one an I just don't know about it?

    there's a .22 upper you can buy, forgot the name. i'm sure someone will chime in here soon.

    i always hear people complain that it's out of stock though.

    conversion kits and a knockoff from ISSC exist ... what's the big deal?

    I can only suggest getting a .22 conversion unit. These will not duplicate the balance of the gun (aluminum slides are lighter) or the recoil, but extensive practice with a .22 is better than little or no practice with the bigger caliber. I will certainly not volunteer to stand in front of it. :D

    It would be interesting, though, to see Glock bring out a .22. Following their numbering system, a .22-caliber would be a 40 - the perfect complement to the existing .40-caliber 22. :p

    While many feel that dry fire isn't as fun as live fire, correct Dryfire Practice will make you much better shot unless you have access to unlimited amounts of practice ammo...plus it's free and isn't as hard on your joints.

    A rough rule of thumb for improving your shooting is 7 correct dryfire shots for each live round fired

    I just got a .22 conversion for my Sig P229. It's a lot of fun. Not as fun as shooting 357 Sig, but fun none the less. I don't know about the ones for the Glock, but the Sig one doesn't lock the slide back on the last round so you run the risk of dry firing if you lose count. My 'fix' for that was to load a snap cap in the mag as the bottom round, so now when it stops going bang I'm at least not dry firing a rim fire.

    I have always been interested in getting a 22 conversion for one of my Glocks. I think it would be fun to plink with.

    In my situation, the conversion would not save me any money. I reload and cast my own boolits, so I am saving a lot of money as it is. Last time I did my math, 100 rounds of my 9mm ammo cost me about $6-$7 . The conversion would still be beneficial as it would add to the versatility of the pistol.

    The rimfire firearms are the most enjoyable in my collection.

    The .22LR is the foundation of good marksmanship.

    Ciener does not lock back on last round, AA does (Glocks)...
    AA is less prone to jamb with 36 grain, hot hollow points...
    Ceiner recommends 40 grain Rem ammo only... Best to use it:uhoh:
    Both work well with the 40 grn as mentioned before:)

    Tac Sol is coming out with a Glock conversion as well.

    I liked the Ciener I had for my 1911, but they don't have the best rep on Glocks.
