    Got my 44 today- serial number #?^* 62- it’s pure Glock and the texture on the grip is actually texture- very grabby similar to what FN uses. Very light weight and very accurate and 100% with every flavor we tried, just a Glock- feels and runs like a Glock and think the trigger is better than what I started with on all of my gen 3s- what my whole stable consists of. It’s pure Glock , at a decent street price.
    Above any training or teaching we use 22s around here for lots of pest control and this will be a useful tool plan to turn the dogs out on some cotton tails tomorrow and the 44 will be on my hip.

    Got my 44 day of release, kinda short on time right now but already have close to 7,000 rds through mine with only a couple malfunctions in the first brick, have not cleaned it, only lubed it with slip2000ewl for 6,500 rds, will try and give a more thorough review soon.

    I am going for 10,000rds total over the next month, month and a half.

    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.

    why and how? what are you doing that you've already burned 7k rounds through this gun in less than 30 days? You're certainly not getting any training value from that.

    I dunno. If someone's willing to be a beta tester for a production sample have at it. It's less than 5 boxes of .22 a day.

    I go back to work in three months, God willing and the river don't rise. Fifty draw strokes with 5 rounds a draw on steel is not unreasonable daily/daily as part of rehab.

    Got me thinking anyway.

    What I really want is someone to hang a red dot on it and tell us how it runs. But wait, someone's gonna do that...

    the why and how?

    Well I have been training my wife and daughter usually 1-2 times a week and my wife has been thoroughly enjoying herself at the range with the new G44 so I have been more then happy to let her train and shoot as much as she and I can stand.

    It's not real hard to burn a brick or 2 of ammo between 3 people a couple times a week.

    I have also been doing accuracy testing and trying as many different kinds of ammo as I can get my hands on so as to see for my self how good or bad this new pistol is. 7,000 rds in a month may seem extreme to some but lets remember its a .22, it's not always about die hard training, sometime the friends and family just want to have fun so I let them. Took the wife out today and we shot another 700 plus rds today as well, ZERO problems still.

    Back about 1982 or so I started accumulating .22 conversion units or .22 cal equivalents of my various guns to allow me to practice for cheap. My normal practice has been to shoot about 1000 rounds a month of .22 indoors in the winter.
    In January I bought the first Glock 44 I ever saw. I already have a Ciener conversion unit on a G19 frame and an Advantage Arms conversion on a G22 frame.
    I've been REALLY impressed with the Glock 44 so far. I have tested it with the following ammunition types:
    200 rnds CCI Mini Mags. (40 grn at 1235 fps)
    300 rnds CCI AR Tactical. (40 grn at 1200 fps)
    200 rnds Winchester M-22 (40 grn at 1255 fps)
    200 rnds Winchester Super Speed (40 grn @ 1300 fps)
    200 rnds Federal Black (38 grn at 1260 fps)
    200 rnds Browning Performance Rimfire (BPR) (40 grn at 1435 fps)
    200 rns Armscore High Velocity (36 grn at 1260 fps)
    200 rns Augila Super Extra High Velocity ((40 grn at 1255 fps)
    That's 1,700 rounds in five weeks.
    I cleaned and lubed the gun after each trip to the range.
    I had NO (0) malfunctions.
    Most of the shooting I did was accuracy drills on NRA B-24 or B-34 or B-29 or TQ-20 targets at 30 and 50 feet. I also shot on some Warren Tactical WTS-8 targets at different distances.
    Both of my other Glock conversions and the SIG factory .22 conversions require hot ammo with plated bullets to run reliably. I've usually used CCI Mini-Mags for that application, and still experienced occasional malfunctions caused by the slide not going fully into battery.
    So far I've been really impressed with the G44. The trigger feels like a stock Glock trigger.
