Glock has announced its first .22 Long Rifle pistol, the G44, available Jan. 20, 2020.

Featuring a hybrid steel-polymer slide, the Glock 44 frame size imitates that of the iconic Glock 19. “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, a firearm expert with more than 30 years in the Marine Corps, was one of two partners selected by Glock to rigorously test the Glock 44 in a variety of climates and adverse conditions. Glock says it 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.
