    Default Glock 44

    Thoughts?

    https://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/...glock-44-22lr/

    I figured I would get more intelligent discussion here then elsewhere.

    FB is a Constant deluge of people that shoot maybe 100 rounds a year saying this is stupid and that they want glock to make rifles and 1911s. They decry the lack of "innovation" but cant come up with a specific innovative feature they would like to see.

    They plan to have factory threaded models available a 15 round mag is in development for the price of a conversion kit you get a whole pistol that isn't as ammo picky I think how they solved the slide dimension to weight issue on a 22lr is pretty innovative.

    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 like it. I figure in a year I'll be able to buy one that comes with a threaded barrel initially, rather than having to buy an extra barrel. I definitely want 15-rd mags. I wonder if they could have fit more in there, but chose 15 in order to match the G19. I see no reason to limit mag capacity. Give me as many as you can stuff in there.

    I'll also be interested in learning whether or not the slide can be milled for an RMR.

    I guess my little brother is going to inherit a S&W M&P 22.

    The slide is a polymer steel hybrid so I don't think optic milling is in the cards

    Probably not, but I'm an optimist. And with polymer, maybe you can glue down a dual-illuminated model.

    Slide milling may take some new techniques (or not) as it is polymer coated metal.
    Where there is a will there is a way:)

    Or a SI slide... doubtful but you never know.

    I would love to have it! Would make a great trainer for those just getting started in shooting plus a fun plinker! Just hope the cost is not outrageous and I am sure the supply will push the demand (and price)

    I would purchase two as soon as they become available; .22LR is always fun to shoot!

    My only beef is that they didn't make it ten years earlier. As far as putting an optic on top, I guess we wait and see.

    My only disappointment is that they didn’t make the G40 the .22LR. That way you could have a G22 40 and a G40 22 and further confuse everyone who doesn’t speak Glock.
