Ending much speculation about what their “legendary news” would reveal, GLOCK announced the new .22LR GLOCK G44, as expected today. The G44 is a 10-round capacity blowback semi-automatic in a GLOCK 19 frame size.
The new G44 features a “hybrid steel” slide (with front serrations) made of five pieces combining steel and polymer, making the slide light enough to reliably cycle rimfire ammunition.
It features a GLOCK Marksman barrel, ambidextrous slide stop levers and a reversible magazine catch, as well as multiple backstraps to fit almost any shooter.
The new pistol’s product page is now live at GLOCK.us.
And yes, a threaded barrel is available.
While the site doesn’t yet specify, TTAG understands that the G44 MSRP will be about $400.
