The Glock 44 is Glock’s first dedicated .22LR pistol. With the ergonomics of the Glock 19, you’ll feel comfortable at the range or just plinking.

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 various 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 frame comes with four backstraps for a perfect fit for every shooter. Instead of using cheaper materials, the slide is a polymer and steel hybrid, making the G44 exceptionally lightweight.
