A Look at Glock's New $359 22LR Pistol: the G44

Guns.com dropped in with Glock to check out the new G44 .22LR pistol and got the low-down on the platform from pro shooter Ashley Rheuark.

Rheuark, a world-ranked competitor who joined Team Glock in 2017, talked to us about the company’s first rimfire handgun, which uses a hybrid polymer/steel slide on a frame that mimics the popular Glock G19. A doppelganger for the 9mm G19, the G44 makes a great trainer in addition to being a solid plinker.

With a 4.02-inch barrel, the overall length of the G44 is 7.28-inches– almost the exact size as the G19. The G44 has a 10-round magazine (Photo: Chris Eger/Guns.com)

Using a 4.02-inch barrel which produces an overall length of 7.28-inches– the G44 takes up the same metric as Glock’s most common 9mm mid-size. Likewise, both pistols have the same 5.04-inch height, a factor which means most G19 holsters will work for the G44, should you want to carry the .22LR.

MSRP on the G44 is $430, but we currently stock them at $359.
