    Huh, I forgot about the PPK/S. Good point.

    I'm on the list at a LGS for 2 of these. Some more information has recently came out.

    They are not working on a 15 round mag citing that they cannot ensure it would meet their reliability standards, the fact that every semi auto 22 pistol since the inception of the semi auto 22 pistol has used a 10 round magazine leads me to believe them.

    Typical development time on a new glock model is a year the model 44 took 3 years and they went through 1.2 million rounds of 22 LR to ensure it would work going as far as buying entire cases of specific 22 ammo then locating another case from a different production lot.

    Threaded barrels will be available separately I can live with that when I want it quiet I can have it quiet when I want it exactly the same as a G19 I can.

    The gun has played a critical role in history. An invention that has been praised and denounced... Served Hero and villain alike... and carries with it moral responsibility. To understand the gun is to better understand history.

    I'm just excited about the reliability. Watch james over at tfbtv coverage of it. The basic takeaway is that it'll be as reliable as any glock. That in a 22lr? Yes please. That was always my biggest thing with 22lr is reliability. I'm excited.

    The gun industry...all of it, is the most fickle, disloyal, distracted and niggardly of any industry I have seen. They vociferously demand all manner of innovations only to criticvize them once they are innovated and then refuse to buy because of some silliness or another. Yes..HK hates you because they are fed up with you. I think the G44 is a good idea, although Advantage Arms will likely have a seizure over what will undoubtedly take their market from them. I will buy one and put a Holosun on it and maybe source a threaded barrel for a can.

    If one knew a capable machinist It would not be difficult to thread the existing barrel and utilize a thread adapter as many of the other slide operated 22s do just a matter of the adapter stem matching the barrel diameter.

    Glock currently lists a factory threaded barrel and adapter kit on their website and states that it will be available when the pistols hit the market.

    I'm looking forward to buying a Glock 44 as soon as I can get my hands on one.

    Every winter for the last 35 years or so I've done lots of shooting on the indoor range with .22s. These days that mostly involves a G19 frame with a Ciener conversion unit, a G17 frame with an Advantage Arms conversion unit and a S&W AR15-22.

    I usually shoot on reduced targets at 50 feet with the handguns.

    As Mr. Suarez pointed out, American gun owners are cheap to the point of stupidity. .22LR is reliable...if you feed it quality ammunition. Most people buy bulk-pack trash, then whine about misfires.
