    I like the idea of the 44 but the 10 round capacity really killed it for me. However from a training aspect, I like it.

    I hope they will use the new hybrid slide technology to make a 42, 43, 43X and 48 in 22LR. Surely they can fit 10 rounds in a GLOCK 42 frame?

    yes, there will be, but the capacity will need to be reduced to just 3...

    Does anyone know if you can take the 44 slide assembly and install it on your Glock 19 and have it function properly?

    I doubt they'll offer it in any other sizes, anytime soon.

    From the looks of it, it can't be done.

    Thanks. Sorry to hear that.
    Looks like Advantage Arms will still be in business a while longer.

    Walthyer has a PPK/s style .22, I gave my daughter an Erma Excam .22, so a G-42/43 sized .22lr, why not?
    I would buy that this new full size...…..meh.

    If Advantage Arms can make 25 & 15 rnd mags for their .22lr conversion kits I would like to believe Glock can do the same. Granted, neither the 15 nor 25 rnd mags will be flush fitting but the capacity is there.

    If anything they'll make it on the same basic frame platform but in G17 and G26 sizes in addition to the G19 size.

    I don't see the point in making the gun in a more "Concealable" size. It isn't chambered in a legitimate defensive caliber and the existing G43, G43x, and G48 are much better choices for concealed carry guns.

    For a "Kit" gun or fishing tackle box gun a G26 sized 22 would be just fine. I alos don't understand why so many are complaining about the ten round mag capacity. The gun comes with two spare mags. How hard is it to change magazines? These are not tactical or defensive guns, these are target and plinking guns.

    I'd like to see it in the G26 size, but first we need to understand why they restricted the capacity in the 44. If it was because of reliability (i.e. need to be single stack to ensure reliability), a G26 sized .22 would only be 6-7 rounds.

    I don't foresee a big demand for a .22 Glock. The "average" Glock buyer, if there is such a thing, prolly wants a Glock primarily for home defense, with possible additional uses as a car gun or concealed carry. The .22 does not fit awesomely with those needs. It does work as a trainer, plinker and small game gun.

    I read on thefirearmblog that the G44 box sent to an early tester showed it to include 15 round mags (though 10 rounders were in the box). So I bet a 15 rounder is in the future, after the 10 round mag market is satiated. That's a slimy marketing ploy - the same thing Glock did with the 42 then 43 - but it does tend to indicate that there will be a 15 round G44 in due course. That helps a little, but I still don't think the Glock 22 lineup will be a big seller.

    Yeah, I'll prolly get one eventually. Of course I will.

    But I gotta give Glock its due for going just a little outside its 1983 comfort zone. A plastic slide is something that not many of us were anticipating.

    The sub compacts will be available only in 22 short.

    I’m in for a G48 or G17 sized version. The G19 version is a major disappointment for me personally.

    A 48 sized one would be nice especially for bringing younger ones out to shoot, may be okay for Glock style trigger discipline, but really there are a number of other .22's out in wild with much better triggers.
