SMYRNA, Ga. – -(AmmoLand.com)- GLOCK, Inc., a global leader in firearms manufacturing and innovation, invites you to start the .22 Long Rifle (LR) caliber journey with the introduction of the new GLOCK 44.

The company debuted its first-ever .22 LR caliber pistol at a live product launch that included select media partners and distributors on-site while GLOCK fans and brand loyalists tuned in to be a part of the experience from around the globe.

GLOCK 44 .22 LR Pistol

Since inception, GLOCK has been synonymous with reliability, accuracy, and durability. GLOCK does not compromise when it comes to quality and reliability in a firearm. Now you can get the same trusted reliability and durability in a .22 LR caliber pistol. The GLOCK 44 has a unique hybrid steel-polymer slide and mirrors the iconic GLOCK 19 frame size for optimal performance for new shooters, sport shooters, and everyone in between. “The way the G44 mirrors the iconic G19 is great and all levels of shooters will benefit from owning and practicing with the G44,” said Retired Marine Gunner Christian Wade. “I subjected the G44 to a variety of adverse conditions and it holds its own with every other GLOCK ever produced.”

Wade was one of two partners selected by GLOCK to rigorously test the GLOCK 44 in a variety of climates and adverse conditions. With over 30 years in the Marine Corps and as a firearms expert, Wade understands the importance of functionality and ease of use is realized in the GLOCK platform and carried on to the GLOCK 44.

GLOCK has taken everything that is fun and functional about a .22 LR caliber pistol and enhanced it to improve your experience with optimal performance. “While many .22 LR firearms exhibit tendencies to function differently with particular ammunition types, the G44 pistol functioned to near perfection,” said Bryan Peterson, Manager of Product Concept Development at Federal Ammunition.

Peterson was also a partner included in early testing and extended his expertise of ammunition through testing the G44 with thousands of rounds and a large variety of ammunition.

The G44 features many of the latest enhancements seen in the 5th Generation of GLOCK pistols such as the ambidextrous slide stop lever and reversible magazine catch, the GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB) for increased accuracy and performance, adjustable back straps, and adjustable rear sights. The G44 also features a ghost hole loaded chamber indicator and comes standard with two 10-round load-assist magazines.

This will be my next glock! When it debuted i was trying to decide between advantage arms and tactical sol for a 22 conversion for my 19. For me glock is the answer to the handgun queston and i went to them from revolvers. Though i still keep a couple revolvers.

I have the Advantage Arms conversion for my 19- gen4 with 4-25rnd mags, and the 10rnd it came with. loaded up all of them went to the range, fired all 110rnds without any hiccups what so ever. The trick is follow the tips from Advantage arms of cleaning it, and keep it well oiled, and I had no problems. I was using cci- AR Tactical 22lr ammo, and everyone went bang, and at 30ft all 110rnds in the black of target. I’m still getting the 44 when they get released on Jan. 20th tho. One for me, one for my… Read more »

I’m a Sig guy. Though my wife’s EDC is a Glock 48, which is a fine shooting pistol. I already own a .22LR pistol, the Smith & Wesson M&P22, which is a good performer. However, I must concede that I’m tempted to buy the Glock 44!

I am a GLOCK fan from ’86, but until they get at least a 15-20 rd mag for it it’;s useless to me.
For their prices.

Useless? Look at all the successful 22’s out there that have stood the test of time,,all 10 rounders,,,don’t be a Glock crybaby,,,like those who cried about the magazine count of the 42 and, 43, just move on

I remember when a co-worker brought his to one of our matches we held at our range; this was in the early 90s. I said that I would never have one as they didn’t seem safe to me. I was a die hard 1911 fan at that time. I got my first for Christmas in 2000; it was a model 32 because I wanted a gun with 357 Sig and 40 S&W interchangeability (I have a good wife). In the ensuing years I have bought two 19s, a 20, a23, and a 30. I will be buying a G44 this… Read more »

Glock made the most reliable, dependable handgun on earth and then they gave up on doing anything else. 10rd mags, not optics ready, and no threaded barrel? What a complete waste of an opportunity to make a really great pistol.

Did you give any thought at all that adding an RMR, or it’s like, might just upset the operation of the slide given the added weight? As far as no threaded bbl: “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” And there will others, perhaps in addition to Glock, who will offer threaded barrels. That’s how sales departments work.

The next G44 will come out as a 3 round burst semi or full auto with a 50 round mag…..

What a LET DOWN!! 10 Rounds,,, Really ?? 10 rounds in a .22LR pistol is absolutely backwards, the progressive mfgs are all giving us more than 10 rounds! Glock, you blew it! I’m sure it will be expensive, and I’m sure it will only sell to Glock Fan Boys. Like myself for instance, I was glad to hear this info until I read the mag capacity, Now,, I’m not interested at all! Taurus has the .22 to buy right now! RH

The Taurus TX22 has a 16 round Mag capacity, suppressor adapter and can be bought at my LGS for $239.00. Check this out before you spend twice as much for half the options. Unless you have to have the Glock name on the slide… It is your choice and your money after all.

What a letdown! They billed this as a historic announcement, as if they were going to enter a new market and branch out from pistols. Everyone thought it would be a PCC. Or even a precision rifle. Instead, it’s a 22LR. Thanks, I will keep my Roger Mark IV, with a larger capacity magazine and impeccable accuracy. This thing has a 10 round mag and sells for $400. That’s hefty for a kids first peashooter! Yes, I am glad they finally have a 22, but this was not worth a tenth of the hype they put behind it!

So, Arizona, your Ruger Mark lV, which has a magazine capacity of 10 rounds has a larger capacity than the Glock 44 which has a magazine capacity of ten rounds. You might want to show us just how you figured that out; and be sure to show your math. But then that fits in with the rest of your post, so there is that.

How bout that! I was trying to decide between aa and tacsol for a conv kit for my g19 and the decision comes from out of the blue.

Article says that G44 mimics G19 size and function. If the grip is the same size, why in the world did they decide to only put in 10 rounds? Was actually thinking I might consider one if it carried a reasonable load! Maybe the remake will be more like the PMR-30 with similar capacity – could come with two barrels, recoil spring assemblies, and different mags – allowing cheap 22LR practice but 22WMR for critter hunting. As is, it’s just another 10-round 22LR – in a rather crowded market.

Well, some places limit semi auto to ten round mags. This allows the greatest amount of sales in the US. You say a “crowded market”. I don’t know of another 22LR that is the same size and configuration of a Glock 19; do you? I have a Ruger MK 3 22 LR for tight groups and longer range shooting (it has a 2.5X7 power scope on top of it) so if I bought one of these it wouldn’t be to replace that. I will most likely buy one just because it will be easier for my grandsons to shoot than… Read more »

I have all of the conversion kits for my Glocks. Why get a new gun that has different trigger and sights. Just convert, takes about 30 seconds and you can use your carry holster, trigger and sights for the cheap pratice. These work extremely well. $400, would buy 2 glock conversion kits and a couple of extra mags to boot.

Rumors of a 15rd mag per tfb,,,,,,,,no lightning yet.
I’d be fine with 10 myself.

Makes it easier for them not have 2 different models for compliance, Also 22s do not like to be staggered stacked

Finnky

Thanks for the informative responses. @RoyD – good point about sharing holster etc with your G19. Agree it’s not the right tool for large animals, but would think it sufficient for skunks, squirrels and the like. If I ever go glock (from m&p) – I’d definitely consider one of these. @El harbet – Good rumor. Wouldn’t hold my breath, but for plinking 10 rounds is plenty. Have been know to load 5-8 in my M&P mags during class – for more reload practice. @AzLefty – Good point. Did occur to me that they were going for nationwide compliance. Didn’t know… Read more »

Don’t worry, theres probably after market companies working on larger mags as we speak, I mean how long was it before they made the 33rnd mags for most of the double stack Glocks, and let us not forget about the fifty round drum that also came along for the 9mill glocks, and I just read some where they also have a drum for the .45acp. That little ten shooter will soon become a 20-25 shooter or more probably within its first year or so.

RoyD
Member

Yes, where there is the will, there is usually a way. Just like my Mk III I will just buy enough mags so that I have five for the gun. I consider five magazines a minimum for all my semi auto handguns.
