That should sell very well.
I see it as a sub-caliber trainer more than a sport pistol.

Nice. Honestly, it looks like a decent OMG (Old Man Gun).

Interesting. Wish the article gave better detail as far as how the slide functions and lock-up. ;-)

I'm thinking threaded barrel and suppressor. :cheers2:

“While many .22 LR firearms exhibit tendencies to function differently with particular ammunition types, the G44 pistol functioned to near perfection,” said Bryan Peterson, Manager of Product Concept Development at Federal Ammunition.
Can you imagine the reaction of the glock crowd if they had said that about a 1911 !?!??!!?! :shock: :lol:

Interesting that the .22 round must be so large that this pistol can only hold ten of them double stacked? :lol:
I bet there will be aftermarket mags soon

I don’t have the link handy but a couple of the Gun website say about $400.

I believe it’s something of an engineering feat to get rimmed 22 cartridges to feed properly. Seem to be a lot of 10 round semi auto 22 magazines. Somebody, I think Taurus? Beretta? had a double stack 22 magazine, But that seems to be a rare creature.

The 22 caliber Glock in G19 form factor is a great idea for 1990. 😊

Still a good idea today. I’d like to have one.

Interesting. Wish the article gave better detail as far as how the slide functions and lock-up. ;-)
Looks very much like the Advantage Arms, with a larger steel insert. Straight blowback, no barrel lockup. Dual recoil spring could be more forgiving of a variety of loads. My solution was to cut the cap off my AA guide rod, and use variable weight springs on my old Haart's guid rod, inserting it into the AA yoke. Runs all high velocity and standard rounds, and takes Quiets with a lighter spring.

From what I can see from the side view of the barrel in the pic AndyC posted is a flange on the chamber-block that likely interfaces with the slide, and the steel inserts in the polymer slide interface with the frame rails. So I would agree, it appears to be a straight Blow-back and the reason for the double recoil spring guide. ;-)
