First Look: GLOCK Announces The G44, Their First .22LR Pistol Ever

Published

The speculation is over. This morning, GLOCK announced their newest pistol, the GLOCK 44. It’s a .22LR pistol, a caliber that was never previously available from the company.

The GLOCK 44 is the same size as the GLOCK 19, giving people a platform and size that they’re already familiar with.

From GLOCK.US;

Once you start with perfection – you stay with perfection. The G44 is the ideal pistol to start or enhance your shooting experience.  The innovative design of the hybrid steel-polymer slide chambered in our first .22 caliber round   provides a lightweight and low recoil functionality for optimal control.

The G44 was thoroughly tested with a wide variety of ammunition to ensure maximum performance and redefine what small can do.

The G44 is a compact size pistol with the ability to adapt to nearly every hand size by using the different backstraps supplied with the pistol. The G44 comes standard with the GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB) for increased accuracy and precision. 

The right equipment is essential. The G44 comes with adjustable rear sights and two load-assist magazines. Everything that a well prepared shooter needs.

Here are the GLOCK 44 specs:
