    If I didn't already have an Advantage Arms 22LR upper and mags for my G19C, I would think about it.

    The G44 mags are stiffer than my Ruger MK mags, but still easy, they are easy to grip when depressing. Probably stiffer springs since they are a bit shorter.

    I will probably own one, but later, as I am not pre-ordering or paying $359 for it. I'll probably buy a used one in a couple years and I'll probably flip my SR-22 if the G44 works for me.

    I'm waiting for some REAL accuracy testing using the G44. All the YouTube videos show "accuracy testing" as some bozo taking a 2 hand grip and rapid firing into a 7 or 10 yard target.

    "See? A four inch group! It's really accurate!"

    You've got to be kidding me. How about bench resting over sandbags, or better yet machine resting, and see how the marksman barrel performs? I'd be interested in the G44 but not if it's less accurate than my Bersa .22 Thunder.

    Anyone out there in GTland have any insight into G44 accuracy? Thanks!

    By all accounts the G44 is selling quite quickly for a pistol no one wanted.

    Every new Glock model sells like hotcakes whether it's a good idea or not. The G44 is probably one of the better new models they've come out with even though it lacks some features to interest me.

    Not me, NEVER.
    One arrives for me at my FFL tomorrow.

    The nerve of Gaston to sell a threaded barrel separately.
    I ordered one from Glock yesterday

    understanding not intent of design, but will still be interested in groups it's capable of achieving at distance. have little doubt it'll run and then some though.

    I already have 2 - 22 lr pistols and 3 - 22lr revolvers. Why would I need more when I do not collect them?

    I picked one up this week, and have one range trip so far. It ran both ammo types well that I tried (neither were subsonic), and feels like the 19. It's a good training pistol that has all the Glock idiosyncrasies (grip, trigger feel, etc.).

    I spent my session using it on the Dot Torture Test target. As the recoil is less, you can more easily pick up on your shooting errors (be they trigger, sights, or grip) and use that feedback to work on your technique that may be more specific to a Glock.

    First one in my county. Bought it on a whim today. It's worth it. Great practice for the 19. Accuracy? Dunno. It hits the steel plates consistently. Feels good. Even though it's light, it emulates the 19 well. Buy buy buy!

    I'm thinking of re examining the walther ppq in .22 lr again. Not much bruhaha on it. Ain't a legend. Lol.

    You could put GLOCK on a single action revolver in .32 rimfire and it would sell. Pretty much a nice looking .22 semi-auto that seem's to have some trouble with certain kinds of ammunition. Who would have thunk it? Only a couple of dozen other manufacturer's. I'm sure it will be a decent gun but no barn burner.

    Shot one at the range today, the rangemasters were trying out the rental G44 and let my friend and I shoot it. It's a nice gun, shoots well, would be fun plinker. While it had the feel of a G19, it's really light. It was noticeably harder to keep on target than a centerfire Glock. As much as I wanted to like it, I think I'll pass. And that has more to do with my finances, I just can't afford guns I "kinda like". If I had more disposable income I'd probably get it.

    Nothing better then indecisiveness.
